Randy Holden
Population II
LP | 1970 | EU | Reissue (Klimt)
13,99 €*
Release:1970 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Randy Holden is an American guitarist best known for his involvement with the West Coast blues-rock group Blue Cheer on their third album, New! Improved! (1969).
Holden obtained a sponsorship deal with Sunn amplifiers. Through this, he received his legendary sixteen 200 Watt amplifiers. His new band was dubbed “Randy Holden - Population II which was a reference to the fact there were only two members in the band as well as being an astronomical term “Population II that defines a special kind of Star Group cluster type, having Heavy Metal in its composition. An appropriate description of the original style of the music attributed to Holden’s new band. The band recorded its only album, Population II in 1970. “(...) These guitars sound not like heavy metal falling from the sky, but like black holes disintegrating chunks of the earth’s core (...)” The album has become a much-sought-after collectors’ item over the years.

Release:1974 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
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, Manuel Göttsching (Ash Ra Tempel), Klaus Schulze (Tangerine Dream), Jürgen Dollase and Harald Grosskopf (both 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 Cosmic Couriers label in the coming months. A first rate slab of space rock up there with other classics of the genre. Limited edition of 500 copies on 180 gram blue vinyl.

Fela Ransome Kuti & His Koola Lobitos Clear Vinyl Edition
LP | 1968 | EU | Reissue (Klimt)
20,99 €*
Release:1968 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Before Afrobeat, there was Highlife-Jazz and Afro-Soul. Highlife music, originally from Ghana and widely popular across West Africa, dominated the music scene in Lagos when Fela Kuti returned to the newly independent Nigeria in 1963. Fela had been studying trumpet at Trinity College of Music in London where he met drummer Tony Allen, who also joined him in new group Koola Lobitos as they sought to mix things up by introducing the sounds they had heard in the capital's jazz clubs.
The music of Fela Kuti has never been easy for beginners to know where to start and this album of early recordings with Koola Lobitos represents a largely unknown, or at least unheard, period of his career. Released on Parlophone Nigeria in the mid ‘60s remained out of print for a long time.
While Fela's Afrobeat compositions took the groove to its limit over side-long tunes, the first disc of early 7" singles here demonstrates the group's desire to take existing sounds and create something new, if not the extended focus and political message that would come later. The group were still developing ahead of the curve though and the abstract sounds were new to listeners in Nigeria, incorporating jazz chords into highlife arrangements. Record starts with ‘Signature Tune’, a short, sharp blast of percussion-led brass that leads into ‘It’s Highlife Time’, which provides a statement of intent as Fela introduces the music that's "got the beat". You get a feel for how the group could ignite a dancefloor, as the group's highlife rhythms fuse with Fela's jazz licks on the trumpet, inspired by Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. ‘Olulufe’ shows a steadier side of the group, as snaky saxophone lines weave around Fela's vocals, transporting the influence of American jazz musicians back to Africa. The horn blasts around the extended dance rhythms of ‘Obinrin Le (Women Are Unpredictable)’ is perhaps the closest to the kind of arrangements that would be developed later.
Them - In Reality Clear Vinyl Edition Edition
Them
In Reality Clear Vinyl Edition Edition
LP | 1971 | EU | Reissue (Klimt)
20,99 €*
Release:1971 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
In 1971, following the departure of his bandmate Jerry Cole, bassist Alan Henderson joined forces with U.S. guitarist Jim Parker and drummer John Stark to make this lost power trio classic -- the last to be issued under the legendary Them moniker. It opens with a searing medley of the Them classics "Gloria" and "Baby Please Don't Go," boasting superb interplay and savage psychedelic guitar throughout. Elsewhere, Stark and Parker flex their songwriting muscles on a series of powerful compositions, and even an acid-folk number. Like its equally-overlooked predecessor, this lost classic is guaranteed to find favor with fans of top-end garage rock.

McDonald And Giles Pink Vinyl Edition
LP | 1971 | EU | Reissue (Klimt)
20,99 €*
Release:1971 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
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 to 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'.

Popol Vuh
Affenstunde Transparent Blue Vinyl Edition
LP | 1970 | EU | Reissue (Klimt)
21,99 €*
Release:1970 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Brilliant debut by the godfathers of ambient and world music, Popol Vuh! Originally released in 1970, Affenstunde (literally 'Ape Hour') was the first album by a German band to employ the extraordinary sounds of the Moog synthesizer. Blending electronics with traditional percussion instruments, Popol Vuh - led by the legendary multi-instrumentalist Florian Fricke - created a tribal and dreamlike blanket of sound that would go on to influence many-a-band on the krautrock scene and beyond. Popol Vuh would also soon famously begin to collaborate with Werner Herzog, composing many of the soundtracks to his films from this period (including Aguirre: The Wrath of God, Nosferatu and Fitzcarraldo).

Roots And Offshoots
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Klimt)
13,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Back in the late Sixties Demon Fuzz was one of the most distinctive British Afro-Rock acts of the time, a seven piece group formed by young musicians immigrated to England from Commonwealth countries. After a period of local shows and during a trip to Morocco, the band began messing up with Arab scales and tribal rhythms and eventually got to a very peculiar blend of Funk, Rock, Jazz and African Music elements. Even though Demon Fuzz's time was short. After their iconic first album (Afreaka) the group disbanded in 1972 and it was not before 1976 that their second album, Roots and Offshoots, was self-published on the mysterious Paco Media Inc label. A rare Afro-Rock piece of vinyl including a dedication to Screaming Jay Hawkins (Ah Put a Spell on you) and a heartfelt tribute to the Biafra republic. Roots and Offshoots stands as a unique mixture of oriental flavoured Blues, psych guitars and organs, and a bunch of infectious earthy grooves.

Genre:Organic Grooves
For over half a century, Takehisa Kosugi was of the most unique and enduring figures in the Japanese underground. As an art student in Tokyo in the early 1960s, he joined the Fluxus-styled performance unit Hi Re Centre and then founded the improvisational ensemble Group Ongaku, but his most legendary project was The Taj Mahal Travellers – a multicellular organism that included Kosugi, Ryo Koike, Yukio Tsuchiya, Seiji Nagai, Michihiro Kimura, Tokio Hasegawa and sound engineer Kinji Hayashi.

With a penchant for long psychedelic jams (some lasting 12 hours or more) The Taj-Mahal Travelers lived up to their name. Touring in a Volkswagen van across Europe and Asia in the early '70s, they eventually reached the actual Taj Mahal in India. Upon their return to Japan, they held a concert to raise more touring funds and released their very first recordings. Their debut album, July 15, 1972, would extend the band's matter-of-fact titling: all the tracks were named precisely for the times they began and ended.

With a grab bag of instrumentation (electric violin, double bass, santoor, vibraphone, harmonica, radio oscillators, sheet iron, etc.), The Taj Mahal Travellers weave together mesmerizing waves of sonic texture. Featuring longtone concepts that Kosugi discovered while working with sound generators in New York in the mid-'60s, July 15, 1972 remains just as much a collective tone poem as psych workout. These leader-less sounds coalesce into a unified whole that feels both subconscious and sublime, as if the waveforms bypass the listener's ears and land directly inside one's synapses.

Release:1979 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Ken Elliott was the keyboard player for Second Hand and Seventh Wave, two obscure and elusive bands from the Seventies British underground scene, and this is the first ever reissue of his ultra rare gem released in the UK in 1979. After fourty years "Body Music" still sounds as a highly eclectic album. This is groove oriented music based on a series of both motoric and infectious Electro Funk rhythms and Synth Pop Disco elements. In other words this is great fuel for dancing bodies.

The End Of The Game
LP | 1970 | EU | Reissue (Klimt)

Release:1970 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Peter Green's legendary debut album was released in June 1970, only a month after leaving Fleetwood Mac the iconic band he formed in 1967. The End of the Game takes a radical shift from Green's previous works with the band. The music, produced through a long free form studio session based on almost non existent structures, takes us through a deep hypnotic sonic experience. Green on guitar was joined by Alex Dmochowski on bass, Godfrey Maclean on drums, Nick Buck on keyboards and British blues legend Zoot Money on piano. End of the Game stands as one of the great psychedelic Rock rituals of all times.

Release:1971 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
From the 70's Canterbury scene, one of the greatest pieces of work in the genre. Matching Mole was the first band formed by Robert Wyatt after the seminal Soft Machine experience. An incredibly tight unit featuring Phil Miller (Hatfield and the North) on guitar, Dave McRae (Nucleus) on keyboards, Bill McCormick (Quiet Sun, 801) on bass and Wyatt himself on drums and vocals. Released in 1971 Little Red Record was Mole's second album. It was produced by Robert Fripp and it features a cameo appearance by Brian Eno. Compared to their previous work, Red Record goes way far beyond the limits of Rock and Jazz. Even if mostly instrumental the album includes "Gloria Gloom" a magnificent song and one of the very first Wyatt's critical reflections on Music and Socialism. In one word, a classic!!! Pressed on color vinyl LP with a bonus track.

Mickey Jupp is something of a minor legend, a roots rocker with excellent taste and a cutting wit. Jupp is a pub rocker, a guy who specializes in laid-back good times, so it shouldn’t come as a great surprise that his first band, Legend, was proto-pub, an unabashed celebration of old-time rock & roll, filled with three-chord Chuck Berry rockers and doo wop backing vocals.
Here presented the mighty first LEGEND album, a killer psych beat masterpiece, complete with three bonus tracks.

Zzebra were at the forefront of mid 70’s progressive rock that threw jazz, rock, and African rhythms into a huge fusion blender. Created by an amalgamation of two important figures: the saxophonist Dave Quincy from IF, and the Nigerian flautist and saxophonist Lasisi “Loughty” Amao from Osibisa, Zzebra, joined then by Tommy Eyre, John McCoy Liam Genockey, Alan Marshall and the only 17-year old guitarist Steve Byrd.
PANIC is the second studio album of the band recorded during the summer of 1975 and includes, among the others, the highly inventive instrumental interpretation of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”, the atmospheric “Liamo”, the groovy “Put A Light On Me”, and concludes its journey with the killer tracks “Return To Forever” and “La Si Si-La So So”.

The band took off at the end of the 60s from the encounter between Graham Field and Dave Kaffinetti, that, after the arrival of Steve Gould and Mark Ashton, decided to call themselves the Rare Bird. Their keyboard dominated-progressive rock style was immediately noticed by Tony Stratton-Smith with whom the band signed one of the first contracts of the eclectic label Charisma Records (the others were Van der Graaf Generator and The Nice). Rare Bird is the band’s debut album released at the end of 1969, that includes, among the striking tracks, the worldwide chart hit Sympathy, that at the time sold more than one million copies.

Genre:Organic Grooves
The mid-1980s were a pivotal period for Don Cherry. Much of his energies had been devoted to co-op projects like Codona and Old and New Dreams and he also helped jumpstart the Leaders. The time being ripe to form his own ensemble, Cherry created Nu, a quintet with saxophonist/flutist Carlos Ward, bassist Mark Helias, percussionist Nana Vasconcelos and drummer Ed Blackwell. Live at the Bracknell Jazz Festival, 1986 confirms Nu to be an ensemble that vigorously and cogently articulated the various aspects of the multi-instrumentalist’s multicultural aesthetic. This exceptional concert recording fills a significant gap in Cherry’s discography.
