In The Land Of Grey And Pink

    Pioneering album by Canterbury’s own, Caravan, originally released in 1971, and now reissued with TWO FULL SIDES of bonus outtakes taken from the album’s original recording sessions at A.I.R. and Decca studios in London in 1970-71. This was the last album to feature the original Caravan line-up, before David Sinclair left to form Matching Mole with Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine) later that year.


    2xLP Info: Double coloured vinyl - grey and pink.

    Of Sudanese heritage, the bassist Ahmed Abdul-Malik (1927-1993) was born Jonathan Timms in Brooklyn. After working with Art Blakey and Thelonious Monk, among others, Abdul-Malik studied music of other cultures. He was among the first to incorporate Middle Eastern and Indian influences into Jazz. A mindblowing mix of jazz and Middle Eastern influences— and a rare ‘60s treasure from Thelonious Monk’s former bassist! Ahmed Abdul-Malik blends together percussion, bass, and oud with some soulful solo work from Seldon Powell on tenor and flute, and Ray Nance on cornet - stretching out over long tracks with an exotic vibe.

    McDonald And Giles

    McDonald And Giles

      Soon after the release of King Crimson’s 1969 masterpiece, In The Court Of The Crimson King, band members Michael Giles and Ian McDonald began to disagree with the direction the band was taking and soon split off start their own project. 1971 saw the release of an excellent studio album on Island Records called simply McDonald and Giles. Although the album was similar in style and complexity to King Crimson, the sound was considerably less dark overall. In fact, regarding this difference, McDonald commented at the time, “I want to make music that says good things instead of evil things". The album also featured Michael Giles’ brother Peter (from their days with Giles, Giles & Fripp), and guest musician Steve Winwood, whose keyboard playing can be heard on “Turnham Green”.

      The Cosmic Jokers

      The Cosmic Jokers

        Recorded in 1973 during a series of acid-fuelled all-night jam parties held at producer Dieter Dierks’ studio near Cologne, Cosmic Jokers was the work of a veritable krautrock supergroup that included Dierks himself, Klaus Schulze and Manuel Göttsching (of Ash Ra Tempel) and Jürgen Dollase and Harald Grosskopf (of Wallenstein).

        This free-form freak out, consisting of two epic tracks—the 22-min “Galactic Joke” and the 19-min “Cosmic Joy”—was first of five albums by the group to be released on Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser’s Kosmische Kuriere label. A first rate slab of space rock up there with other classics of the genre!

        Septober Energy

          An ambitious, four-movement suite, led by Keith Tippett, and produced by Robert Fripp in 1971. This 50-piece orchestra brought together the best British musicians of the day, including members of Soft Machine, King Crimson and Nucleus, as well as jazz musicians Gary Windo, Mark Charig, Elton Dean, Karl Jenkins, Nick Evans, and Ian Carr. Despite having been released over 30 years ago, Septober Energy remains a force to be reckoned with, and while the 85-minutes of music often resembles that of KC or SM, it also brings in elements of free jazz and contemporary classical music. Finally reissued on double gatefold vinyl and featuring the original artwork!
