Formed in North Portland, Oregon during the summer of 1966. Brigade won the KLSN Radio Portland Teen Fair Battle Of The Bands on 9th June 1968 and received a 1954 custom purple Cadillac Hearse as a prize! By now they were a top local attraction and the same year they signed to the American Record Company and recorded a demo which received a lot of local airplay. They went on to record an album for the B&V (Band 'n' Vocal) label in 1970, but split up before it was released. Consequently it received little airplay and flopped. The band all went on to college or further education. Today the album is exceedingly rare, even the more recent vinyl reissue on Rockadelic, which was limited to just 350 copies, has already become hard to come by. Even this CD release is shrinking in supply. Musically, it consists of keyboard-dominated progressive rock…

Lake had said this was his favourite ELP record.

Virgin Records #CDV2008

One of the Canterbury scene's most revered bands, Hatfield and the North made up for the brevity of their career with some fascinating music. Always adventurous, the quartet had the keen sense to realize that only the most hardened jazz fans respond to numerous key changes and exceedingly complex time signatures, and thus enlivened their live set with the odd gnome smashing, suggestive lyrics, and jokey song titles. It worked a charm, with the band quickly amassing a large, loyal following at home in Britain and across the continent. On their eponymous debut, Hatfield stunningly succeeded in translating both their sense of fun and their musical brilliance onto disc.

This band hails from Florida with influences of early Genesis and Gentle Giant as well. It was formed in 1976 by Rick Leonard, Rodney Best, Doroccas, J. David Boyko, and Gary Chambers. Excellent vocals by Doroccas are the stronger characteristics here. Hard Rock driven passages are constant on this unique album of this fabulous band. Babylon is firmly set in the ways of the classic 70's bands, with great analogue keyboard work and extraordinarily adept musicianship. They released only one album in 1978 and broke up that same year.

Krautrock / Space Rock / Psychedelic Rock / Progressive Rock
Acme Records / Lion Productions LLC #ACLN 1014CD

Epic early- to mid-1970’s psychedelic space-rock from the lost Pyramid Records archive, said to be pseudonymous after-hours studio sessions featuring the biggest names on the Krautrock scene; heavy drums, jamming guitars and Hammond organ: in short, an amazing improvised free-form trip of impressive magnitude, on par with the music of Krautrock heavyweights like Neu! and Gila. An adventurous atmosphere thoughout, whether the result is hallucinogenic and jazzy (’Jupiter’), the heavy freak and roll of ’The Returning,’ with crushing guitars and a massive, repetitive almost funky rhythm, or the Jimi Hendrix-inspired 'Godhead Dance.’ An explosive record, still fresh despite the years… and meant to be played loud. Booklet essay examines the controversy surrounding this and other recordings first made known to the world via Virgin Records' three disc ”Unknown Deutschland" series of compilations.

For the first time since 2003 we are offering our very first CD 'The Pictures Within'. These eleven songs were the basis of all that follows, from the heavy rock of the title track 'The Picture Within' and the progressive intent of 'I'm An Explosive' our origins are here. This CD was originally recorded as a series of Demo recordings, brought about at the request of venues, friends and family. With no budget and limited equipment, we set out to do our best and capture the songs utilising largely live play throughs (many of them!), with very occasional overdubs. It has been mastered for presentation here. The CD was produced with only 50 copies and was never intended for commercial release, it is therefore presented here for free, or pay if you wish. We really hope you enjoy this glimpse into our earliest musical past!

When one thinks of the Dream Syndicate, it’s not just the wild abandon with which singer / guitarist Steve Wynn, drummer Dennis Duck, bassist Mark Walton, and lead guitarist Jason Victor perform - it’s the carefully constructed songwriting of Wynn that comes to mind. By now every rock critic in the country has predetermined who he or she feels Wynn reminds them of and what they think of that style of songs. This time, don’t! Which brings us to The Universe Inside. Every article or review ever written will claim “this is new and different”- well, it is! Just look at the song lengths: 20:27, 7:36, 8:56, 9:55 and 10:53. Ok, sure - the Syndicate have occasionally committed a long song to vinyl, John Coltrane Stereo Blues was 9 minutes with live versions over the ten-minute mark.

Flashback is the second box set compilation by Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), released in 2000. In 2000, Jeff Lynne found a new impetus to work on the music of his old band and returned to the recording studio to work on an ELO project for the first time in some 15 years just prior to the comeback album Zoom in 2001. This work resulted in a digitally remastered compilation released in late 2000. Unlike its predecessors, this project, Flashback, was personally approved and endorsed by Lynne. The set includes songs featured from all 11 studio albums up to that point, including an edit of "Great Balls of Fire" from their live album The Night the Light Went On in Long Beach, plus some new recordings amongst the band's extensive back catalog, most notably a reworking of Lynne's only UK number one hit "Xanadu". The album includes liner notes by David Wild with quotes on each song from Lynne and a booklet inside.

The end of the 60s was an important period in jazz, as well as rock music, in Poland and the rest of the world, with the development of many styles and trends in popular music. In 1970 the jazz rock fusion band, Laboratorium was formed in Kraków. Their music soon developed in jazz rock fusion, and so were pioneers in this music in Poland. In their first years, Laboratorium's music was acoustic, cleverly avoiding any limiting definitions. At the beginning of the 70's there was very limited access to Western recordings but this did not prove an obstacle for the band, because of the musicians searching and experimenting in the field. On the contrary and because of their relative isolation, Laboratorium developed an unique sound which was often noted in various critical reviews…

One of those real rare hard rock group often considered as heavy progressive, Jenghiz Khan produced one sole album that is now a highly-priced collectible item. With an amazing cartoon-like gatefold cover of the Great Conqueror having cut the group member's heads, this obscure quartet is also the start of bassist Rapsat's lengthy career (he had recorded with another "prog" group Laurelie the same year) as a French-speaking rock singer/songwriter. The album is the hard rock that one can expect from the era with an amateur trait, but also some undeniable progressive tendencies. The album has received a CD issue sometime ago and is now most likely scarce also. ~ Hugues Chantraine, Belgium

The two albums by Pythagoras sound totally different and a bit simple but very tasteful: the first is cosmic oriented synthesizer music and their second is a wonderful blend of some spacey synthesizer - and classical music with bombastic symphonic rock featuring Arjen Lucassen (who later got fame with his Ayreon project) delivering a Gilmourian guitar solo and Michel Van Wassem (who recently plays in the new Plackband line-up) with some majestic Mellotron eruptions.

Recorded before the release of the Brand X debut Unorthodox Behavior, these 1975-1976 recordings represent the earliest known preservations of the group's beginnings. These are quality recordings that include previously unavailable material. The shining talent and genius of this, the most important of Brit jazz-fusion groups, comes through brightly. Brand X has long been a "musicians' band" where the fretwork of John Goodsall, percussion of Phil Collins, keyboard techniques of Robert Lumley, and bass of Percy Jones inspire others to greater attainment. Still, no music degree is required to appreciate this invigorating, unforgettable music that still sounds remarkably fresh and forward thinking. Over 50 minutes of stunning exploration is contained in the original quintet's six never-before-heard songs. Even after 20 years, Brand X remains in its incipient form the final word in guitar-based progress jazz-rock.

Cold Coming is the story of Marie. Born on the near west side of Chicago to a single mother who couldn’t care for her. Orphaned, adopted, abused, and addicted, she finds herself alone and forgotten. A reflection of our times. And that’s where her odyssey begins…
If you're looking for entertaining progressive rock music, Chicago's Zip Tang are a recommended choice indeed. Definitely experienced, since this will be album number six in the meanwhile.

The band's fifth release, Rain Dances is Camel at its best, offering the most consistent and representative package in their saga. The addition of Caravan-cofounder Richard Sinclair proves profitable, as do a few colorist touches by Brian Eno on "Elke." Mel Collins' woodwinds are among the highlights, especially on "Tell Me" and the title track. From beginning to end, this project flows gracefully.
