KLIMT

Although James Chance’s Contortions had already appeared on Brian Eno’s legendary "No New York" compilation in 1978, "Buy" was the group’s first full-length LP. An angular and brilliant mix of free jazz and post-punk funk, this seminal 1979 album is the quintessential No Wave release and the spark for much of what has come out of the Downtown New York music scene over the past thirty years.

Harumi

Harumi

    Originally released in 1968, Harumi is a classic double album of obscure Japan meets Greenwich Village psych with legendary producer Tom Wilson (Velvet Underground, Zappa, Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel) at the helm, desperately trying to reign in the talents of this enigmatic Japanese artist on the outer fringes of an East/West freak out. All songs are sung in English. 'Harumi' is a remarkable album with tracks ranging from catchy pop to more experimental moments. Including contributions from his parents, this is a truly unique and seriously psychedelic work. A great reissue!

    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.


    Arzachel

    Arzachel

      One of the great lost albums of British psychedelia, original copies of Arzachel’s 1969 self-titled debut fetch huge sums on the collectors’ market and it is not difficult to understand why. Originally released in 1969 on the small Evolution label, this album quite simply contains some of the best psych to ever come out of the UK. However, like so many other great albums of the era, it soon dropped entirely from the radar due to bad promotion. In fact, it may not have ever been rediscovered at all if guitarist Steve Hillage and keyboardist Dave Stewart had not gone on to be so well known. Hillage would soon become famous for his work in Gong, and Stewart would become a legend of British prog with Egg, Hatfield and the North, National Health, and his work with wife Barbara Gaskin in the 1980s. Contains bonus track from a lacquer of the same period.

      Centipede

      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!
