Released in June 1971 by RCA Victor, this completely instrumental Continuum's second album featured jazz influenced classical music played by two line-ups of highly proficient musicians. Side 1 was performed by the new, more 'progressive' band and included two amazing folk-jazz-classical long cuts with rock rhythm section and full of awesome Hammond organ, flute and saxophone parts. In contrast, the classically structured, 27-minutes long title suite (which occupied the entire Side 2 of the original vinyl) consisted of strings, cello, double bass, percussion and plenty of flute parts and was performed by the four members from the band's debut.

This is CD premiere of one of the best and also the most underrated UK folk-progressive albums ever! Released in June 1971 by RCA Victor, this completely instrumental Continuum's second album featured jazz influenced classical music played by two line-ups of highly proficient musicians. Side 1 was performed by the new, more 'progressive' band and included two amazing folk-jazz-classical long cuts with rock rhythm section and full of awesome Hammond organ, flute and saxophone parts.

This CD can't be missed!

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1970 album "The Answer" by the legendary keyboard player and Camel member Peter Bardens. Prior to Bardens joining Andrew Latimer and co. to form Camel, he recorded two excellent solo albums. The first of these was "The Answer". The album included the side long opus "Homage To The God Of Light", later performed by Camel in their live sets. The album is expanded with both sides of the only single released by Bardens' outfit Village, a group who also included future Elvis Costello band member Bruce Thomas and lasted just a few months in 1969.

That this rare album was originally released only in Europe testifies to the dominance of jazz-rock in 1971 and not to the staggering quantity of imagination that one hears on the session today. Still co-leading his legendary European unit (this was their last recording), Francy Boland unleashed his classical training to produce dazzling, fantastically complex writing often loaded with dissonances, unusual groupings of instruments, freeform freakouts, alternating sections in 5/4 and 4/4, loose-jointed structures, and firestorm endings. Yet Getz's great ear picks everything up intuitively; his solos, though brief in playing time, are loaded with sometimes strident emotion and occasionally flirt with the outside…

Vibraphonist Milt Jackson has been so consistent throughout his lengthy career that his excellence can be taken for granted. This Impulse! recording features Bags with a quartet (including pianist Hank Jones) from 1961. The blues, ballads, standards, and originals are typical of Jackson's recordings, as is the high quality of the swinging music. Nothing too unusual occurs but the results are pleasing.

As Detroiters like Kenny Burrell, Pepper Adams, and Tommy Flanagan were migrating to New York in the mid-'50s in a modern jazz takeover, Pittsburgh drummer Kenny Clarke made known his intentions to support these new Young Lions by being their drummer of choice. This album is nearly the same as the equally excellent and highly recommended effort Kenny Clarke Meets the Detroit Jazzmen, save one extra selection. Burrell is the ostensible leader on this six-track set, but the members of this finely honed quintet (including dual Detroit/Pittsburgh claimant citizen bassist Paul Chambers) can all take equal roles, and eventually would as frontmen in their own right…

Genre: Psychedelic Rock, Blues Rock | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: World In Sound (WIS-1043)

Originally this extraordinary heavy-psychedelic-blues rock album was recorded in L.A., in 1969. The album contains 8 original cuts of 43 mins playing time, and presents the "new" dark, haunted and aggressive progress in electric music of the end-sixties. The band name was a creation, to credit the two founding members, so the C (Carey) K (Kewley) Strong caravan began in the summer of 69, a bit later Geoff Westen, the second guitarist joined and the creative unit C.K. Strong was born…

Genre: Post Metal/Sludge | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: Daymare Recordings (DYMC-114), Japan

Oceanic is the next logical step for Isis after the ugly, grandiose Celestial, the Aaron Turner-led outfit's second full-length looking simultaneously inward and outward, reaching into the nether regions of outer space while still keeping its feet firmly earthbound. Yes, it's an ambitious record, one that isn't immediately consumed and digested - rather, it consumes and digests the listener with grand and hypnotic waves of sound. Songs blur together as aggressive, post-hardcore guitar riffery trades with lengthy, meditative bouts of electronic exploration, a technique that would result in plodding, pretentious mush in less capable hands…

Osibisa's second album 'Woyaya' would see the Afro-prog pioneers expand their sound to include more overtly jazzy overtones whilst also turning down the party atmosphere in favour of a more sedate and psychedelic feel. Again, guitarist Wendell Richardson and group leader, founder and saxophonist Teddy Osei are the dominant forces, but this time around the group's uplifting pallette of sounds features a more complex lilt that places 'Woyaya' much closer to the sounds of progressive rock. More thoughtful than their self-titled debut, 'Wowoya' is a complex and impressive album filled with dazzling instrumentation and a rich tapestry of African, Carribean and Western sounds and ideas that shows a band developing rapidly over a very short space of time. Fans of the group claim that this is their best album and it is hard to disagree.

Big Sleep were a Welsh band whose inflence was far beyond their sole album offering released in 1971. The band members (formerly with Eyes Of Blue) would all soon head for greater things in bands such as Gentle Giant, Man and Wild Turkey (formed by ex-Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick). An album that features many fine songs and styles, "Bluebell Wood", (originally released on the highly collectable Pagusus label), has been sought after by collectors for many years thanks to its influence and place in the history of British progressive rock and in the annals of Welsh rock. Remastered from the original master tapes, “Bluebell Wood” has never sounded so good. This release is sure to appeal to followers of Man and Gentle Giant in particular. The First ever- official CD release for this classic album.
