A wonderful little record – one that's filled with subtle charms and surprising moments of beauty – played by an intimate group of musicians who include Lol Coxhill, David Bedford, and Mike Oldfield! In a way, the record's a bit of a precursor for some of the experiments to come from ... (Rock) read moreCD

First Base ... CD Harvest/Warner (Japan), 1973. New Copy ...
About July 20, 2016
This is the first record from these UK jazz rockers who might have been forgotten forever, were it not for "The Mexican", a wonderful jazzy break track on this album, sampled very, very early in the history of hip hop, and still quite nice today! You can also find "Wells Fargo" ... (Rock) read moreCD
A Syd Barrett treasure trove – and an essential compilation of unreleased work that's a much-needed companion to Barrett's classic albums for EMI! The material here is all from the years 1968 to 1970 – tracks recorded before, during, and around the sessions that later became The Madcap ... (Rock) read moreCD
Pure genius from the mind of Pete Brown – and a seminal slice of sound from the Harvest Records empire! As messed up as you'd guess from the title – and they just don't make 'em like this anymore! (Rock) CD
Michael Chapman —
Window ... LP Harvest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Maybe our favorite album ever from Michael Chapman – a bit more stripped-down and rootsy than his other Harvest Records classics, but in a really great way! There's a fluid spirit to the music right from the start – a great focus on Michael's vocals and guitar, but support from ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A seminal slice of jazz rock – recorded by Fourth Way at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1970! The group's greatest appeal at this point is the keyboard work of the great Mike Nock – playing Fender Rhodes here with a very raw sound, plus an Oberheim Ring Modulator – which sounds ...

(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and some wear.)
An incredible record – and one we wouldn't trade for anything! Despite what you may think about Roy Harper's later work, his early records are pure genius – and this one is easily the best! The album's a mindblowing set of folk rock tunes – with the feel of classic work by Tim ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Jester ... CD Harvest/Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy ...
A hell of a record from this lesser-known Belgian combo – one who work at a level that sounds much more like 1972 than the 1977 date of the record – a wickedly tight approach to prog that's perfectly at home on the Harvest label! The set begins with a masterpiece of heavy drums, long-wo ... (Rock) read moreCD
Machiavel ... CD Harvest/Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
That's a hell of a trippy image on the cover – and the music inside does its best to match – the kind of mind-bending sounds that always made this Belgian prog group one of the most unique of their generation! The set's from 1976, but it hardly notices the other changes going on in ... (Rock) read moreCD
A nice little record from Belgian prog combo Machiavel – a set that has them compressing their sound a bit from earlier years, but in a way that almost seems to make their music more tuneful and powerful than before! The shift here is a bit like that mid 70s point when Yes moved away from ... (Rock) read moreCD
A group with an English name, but a sound that's right up there with the best Italian prog groups of the 70s – and an approach that may well be more ambitious than most! The album's got a spacious approach at the start – never a leap right into jamming, and instead this way of building ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A far-reaching, ambitious album from Alan Sorrenti – an Italian singer who works here alongside his own electric guitar, but in the company of some much farther-reaching musicians who bring a classic prog vibe to the record! The title track takes up all of side one – and the rest of ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Very hip work from guitarist Chris Spedding – one of his first albums as a solo artist, but a set that was cut with some of his old bandmates from The Battered Ornaments! Like Spedding, most of the musicians here approach the record with an equal sense of jazz and rock – which often ... (Rock) read moreCD
A very unusual second album from Chris Spedding – one that came out quite a few years after his first solo set, and definitely shows the result of Spedding's countless work on other rock, jazz, and soul sessions! There's still a rootsy, personal feel to the music – but there's also a ... (Rock) read moreCD
A lost jazz gem from guitarist Chris Spedding – a musician whose work was such a key component of many other important albums from the time, but who hardly ever made a record like this! The album's much more jazz than the rock you might normally expect from Spedding – strongly linked ... (Rock) read moreCD
A record that's as weird and wonderful as its cover – and every bit as colorful too! Tea & Sympathy may not have gone onto the fame as some of their late 60s UK contemporaries, but the group have a similarly groundbreaking, genre-busting quality on this classic set for Harvest Records ...

The insanely weird and wonderful second album from Tea & Sympathy – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the nature of their debut! Side one features the extended title track – delivered as a "play on music", with sung passages and spoken bits, all set to an offbeat ... (Rock) read moreCD
Wire's amazing second album – and a pretty astonishing creative leap for the band! Nowadays, Chairs Missing can be seen as a transitional point between the rawer art punk genius of the preceding Pink Flag and the icy synth flourishes of the 154 album to follow. That said, it's an almost ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing, including the heavy inner sleeve, in the G&L cover.)
One of greatest of all British punk era records – released in '77 and one that transcends mid-to-late 70s punk cultural baggage better than just about any other – an absolute benchmark! Wire kept it short and sweet on Pink Flag – with 21 tracks in about 35 minutes – and it's ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
