Artist: ALI QUARTET, RASHIED
Title: New Directions in Modern Music
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Avant-garde jazz drummer Rashied Ali played with John Coltrane up until his death in 1967, appearing on final recordings like The Olatunji Concert and Interstellar Space. After Coltranes death, Ali soon formed his own quartet, with Fred Simmons on piano, Stafford James on bass violin and Carlos Ward on alto sax and flute. The quartets first release, New Directions In Modern Music, released on Alis own Survival Records in 1973, exploded onto the free jazz scene, influencing the likes of Don Cherry, Albert Ayler and Archie Shepp (as well as many outside the jazz idiom), becoming a kind of manifesto for avant-garde music of the period. From this point, until his death in 2009, Ali was at the heart of the New York experimental music scene, collaborating in the mid-nineties on a project called Purple Trap, with Japanese guitarist Keiji Haino and Bill Laswell." - Klimt.

Artist: AMON DUUL II
Title: Meetings with Menmachines Inglorious Heroes of the Past...
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Ultra rare original artwork version of Amon Düüls (UK) Meetings with Menmachines Inglorious Heroes of the Past... This LP was originally released in 1983 on the small British label Illuminated Records (home to Sex Gang Children, Throbbing Gristle, etc.), with an album sleeve of original artwork that was soon inexplicably replaced by a mediocre band photo on all subsequent reissues. Menmachines was also the second of four all-new studio albums made by this UK-based incarnation of Amon Düül. The new Amon Düül featured John Weinzierl on guitar, ex-Hawkwind bassist Dave Anderson (both from Amon Duul II), ex-Van Der Graaf Generator Guy Evans on drums, and Julie Waring on vocals. For this LP the band moved away from the more free-form freakout of their earlier days towards a sound that was far more structured and derivative, with definite new wave/post-punk leanings." -Klimt.

Artist: ARZACHEL
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $28.00
"One of the great lost albums of British psychedelia, original copies of Arzachels 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."

Artist: AYLER, ALBERT
Title: Spirits
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"After a few years spent living in Sweden and touring with Cecil Taylors Jazz Unit, Ayler moved to NYC to begin imposing his revolutionary style of jazz on the world through a number of groundbreaking records. Spirits, recorded at Atlantic Studios in New York City on 24 February 1964, was his first effort. Recorded a few months prior to his landmark album for ESP-Disk, Spiritual Unity (but only released in Europe on Denmarks Debut Records), for the occasion Ayler recruited Norman Howard (a Cleveland-based trumpeter), well-known bassist Henry Grimes, drummer and right-hand man Sunny Murray and the then-unknown bassist Earle Henderson. This historic early disc is essential Ayler." - Klimt.

Artist: AYLER, ALBERT
Title: Swing Low Sweet Spiritual
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Following a few years spent living and playing in Scandinavia, an unknown saxophone player by the name of Albert Ayler returned home to the USA to begin imposing his revolutionary style of jazz on the world. Having recorded his debut album, My Name Is Albert Ayler for the Danish label, Debut Records, this session (which took place in New York City on 24 February 1964) was his first American effort, resulting in the eventual release of two albums: Spirits (released in 1964 on Debut) and Swing Low, Sweet Spiritual, which remained unissued for 30 years. Here, a quartet featuring Ayler on tenor and soprano sax, Call Cobbs on piano, Henry Grimes on bass and Sunny Murray on drums, provide a fresh reading of five well-known African American spirituals and gospel hymns, plus Old Man River, taken from the 1927 musical Show Boat. This is an extremely rare album from Aylers early period." - Klimt.
SOLD OUT

Artist: CHERRY, DON
Title: Relativity Suite
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Finally available again on vinyl! Don Cherrys Relativity Suite, recorded with the Jazz Composers Orchestra in 1973. At this time, Cherry was becoming increasingly interested in Middle Eastern and traditional African and Indian music, having traveled extensively and studied with Indian musician Vasant Rai. This suite of songs was particularly influenced by the Indian karnatic singing tradition, as can be heard from the very opening moments of the album. Featuring Carla Bley on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums, as well as an extended horn and string section, Cherry collaborated extensively with the Jazz Composers Orchestra throughout the early seventies. His Swedish wife, Moki Cherry, plays tambura on Trans-Love Airways." - Klimt.
SOLD OUT

Artist: CHERRY, DON/KRZYSZTOF PENDERECKI
Title: The New Eternal Rhythm Orchestra
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Recorded live at the Donaueschingen Music Festival in Germany on October 17, 1971, this rare concert has not been available on vinyl since the seventies! This recording, while still firmly rooted in the American free jazz tradition of Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler (with whom Don Cherry frequently recorded), brings in elements of traditional Indian, African, Chinese, Mayan and Balinese music. Of the three pieces found here, the first two are composed by Cherry and feature an international group of musicians reminiscent of Sun Ras Arkestra (Cherry also recorded with Ra). His son, the three-year-old Eagle-Eye Cherry, and his wife Moki, can also be heard in some sections! The final piece was written and conducted by Grammy Award-winning Polish avant-garde composer Krysztof Penderecki, best known for his groundbreaking Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima." - Klimt.

Artist: CONCORD STRING QUARTET, THE
Title: Plays Brown, Cage & Feldman
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"An accomplished group in the world of chamber music, the Concord String Quartet, active from 1971-1987, gained almost immediate attention from the press as well as a dedicated following, after winning the prestigious Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award in 1972. Although the quartet was a classical string quartet, these rare 1973 recordings show the groups affinity for the New York School of avant-garde composers, like Earle Brown, John Cage, and Morton Feldman. Side B is entirely comprised of John Cages 1950 String Quartet in Four Parts, where each section of the piece corresponds to one of the four seasons as well as a particular force: spring/creation, summer/preservation, autumn/ destruction, and winter/quiescence." - Klimt. Featured works: Earle Brown, String Quartet 2; Morton Feldman, Structures for String Quartet; John Cage, String Quartet in Four Parts.

Artist: COSMIC JOKERS, THE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"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 Kaisers Cosmic Couriers label in the coming months. A first rate slab of space rock up there with other classics of the genre." -Klimt
SOLD OUT

Artist: CREATION
Title: Pure Electric Soul
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Led by Japanese guitar hero Kazuo Takeda, Creation was instrumental in opening the ears of Japanese audiences to the sounds pouring in from the West. After having spent some time around Londons music scene in 1971, Takeda took his experience home to start a band that incorporated these sounds into something that was at the same time uniquely Japanese. From 1975-1977 Creation released three albums (one of which was recorded in the USA with American producer Felix Pappalardi, whom Takeda had met in London). 1977s Pure Electric Soul was the bands final effort. An album of riff-heavy and funky blues rock, mostly penned by Takeda, with the exception of the blues standard Frankie And Johnny and the Yardbirds Happenings 10 Years Time Ago. Once again the controversial cover artwork featured a group of nude boys." -Klimt.

Artist: CREATION
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Originally released in 1975, this album was the culmination of Japanese ax-hero Kazuo Flash Takedas post-London musical efforts. Takeda spent the early 1960s soaking in the sounds of American blues, psych and British invasion rock bands, eventually forming his own band--the aptly named Blues Creation--in 1969. The band released three albums, including their now legendary Demon & Eleven Children; before Takeda took off for London in 1972. During this time he played on a number of sessions and made friends with many musicians, particularly the American hard rockers Mountain. When he finally returned to Japan the following year, he was ready to start a new band with himself on lead guitar and vocals. Now simply called Creation, the band released its self-titled LP in 1975, produced by the Flower Travellin Band producer Yuya Utchida and featuring a cover photo of a group of naked boys peeing. Creations next album would be recorded in the US with Felix Pappalardi. Takeda went on to release over 20 albums and now lives in L.A. as a session guitarist." -Klimt

Artist: DEMIAN
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $28.00
"One of the bands that helped build the great Austin, TX music scene (the live music capital of the world), Demian was actually Bubble Puppy with a new name and sound. While Bubble Puppy was classic psychedelia, Demian was hard rock in the vein of bands like Atomic Rooster. Recorded live-in-studio at L.A.s legendary Record Plant studio in 1970, Demian was also one of the first bands to feature dueling lead guitars. Despite the high quality of the songs and the local buzz this album generated at the time, due to mismanagement, Demian soon faded into the record collecting beyond." -Klimt
SOLD OUT

Artist: FOREST
Title: BBC Concert
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Recorded in May and October 1972 for BBC Radio 1 by DJ Bob Harris, these sessions may be all that remain of this seminal acid folk bands elusive third album! Featuring songs not heard on either one of their LPs--1969s self-titled debut and 1970s Full Circle, both on Harvest--it is speculated that many of these songs would have appeared on their imminent third album had they not been suddenly dropped from their label (due to low sales and rapidly changing musical tastes). By 1972 Dez Allenby had left the band, leaving brothers Adrian & Martin Welham as the only remaining members, although Dave Panton (viola, sax) and Dave Stubbs (bass) were brought in for their live performances. By this time, particularly on tracks like Everyday Laugh, the Welham brothers were moving more into avant-rock territory and one can only speculate on where they could have gone from here. All songs by Welham & Welham except a version of Ray Charles 1958 hit Leave My Woman Alone." -Klimt.

Artist: FUCHSIA
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Fuchsias 1971 LP is a lost gem of experimental British progressive rock (in the vein of Henry Cow and Comus). Fuchsia was formed by lead singer and guitarist Tony Durant during his days at Exeter University. Wanting to write songs outside of the standard pop format, Durant had the innovative idea of bringing in an all-female string section, which included fellow Exeter students, Madeleine Bland (cello), Janet Rogers (violin), and Vanessa Hall-Smith (viola). Fuchsias self-titled first (and last) album was recorded in summer of 1971, and the band (all students) was determined to tour during their next holiday. But the best laid plans often come undone, and Fuchsia soon dissolved with Durant eventually moving to Australia." -Klimt.

Artist: HENSKE & JERRY YESTER, JUDY
Title: Farewell Aldebaran
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Originally released on Frank Zappas Straight! Records in 1969 and limited to 1,000 copies, Farewell Aldebaran is an inspired one-off project by singer Judy Henske and (ex-Association and Lovin Spoonful member) Jerry Yester. Henskes amazing vocal range and the albums wonderfully eclectic feel (while still firmly rooted in psychedelia) makes one wonder why Henske & Yester did not become bigger stars. A true cult item, combining the help of guest musicians of the calibre of Bernie Krause (Beaver & Krause), Solomon Feldthouse/David Lindley (Kaleidoscope), Ry Cooder and Dick Rosmini. Now reissued for the first time ever on vinyl!" -Klimt
SOLD OUT

Artist: HICKORY WIND
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Before morphing into the excellent psych trio, B.F. Trike, Hickory Wind (from Evansville, Indiana), released one brilliant, and extremely rare, country psych album in 1969. Just 100 copies were pressed for the Gigantic label, and originals have been known to change hands for a small fortune. The album features excellent vocals, plus an interesting mix of fuzz guitar, and droning organ, as well as some wonderfully melodic songs. This reissue also features four bonus tracks from the B.F. Trike album session, recorded for RCA Records in Nashville, Tennessee in 1971. The B.F. Trike album, however, remained in the vaults for 25 years, before it was finally uncovered and given its just recognition in the mid-nineties." -Klimt.
SOLD OUT

Artist: JOSEFUS
Title: Dead Man
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $28.00
"One of the great lost albums of Southern hard rock, Dead Man was the 1970 debut album of the Houston band, Josefus. Formed in 1969, Josefus soon garnered a huge live following, opening for acts like ZZ Top and Grand Funk Railroad. Unfortunately, their debut album, a heavy mix of Zeppelin-inspired acid rock with a Southern twist, was destined to obscurity, due largely to the fact that it was not released on a proper label (the band actually paid to have the album pressed and released on their own Hookah label). Just a few months prior to recording Dead Man, however, Josefus had actually recorded an albums worth of material for a producer in Phoenix, but the album was never released. This is what prompted the band to go back into the studio with their own money to record Dead Man. Dead Man was, therefore naturally, a mix of some of the songs from this earlier album (tentatively called: Get Off My Case) along with some new ones. Actually only three tracks from Get Off My Case did not make it onto Dead Man (Get Off My Case, A Social Song and Fealin Good), but these have been restored here as bonus tracks, so what you are actually getting is the complete track listing from the two albums." -Klimt

Artist: LUCAS, TREVOR
Title: Overlander
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Little-known and long out-of-print album by one of Australias greatest singer-songwriters. Primarily known for his work in the UK with Fairport Convention and Fotheringay (with wife, Sandy Denny) in the early seventies, Trevor Lucas released this album of traditional Australian folk songs in 1966 on Reality Records. Intended to introduce British audiences to the Australian folk tradition, songs like The Overlander and South Australia make the uniquely rough life of the Australian outback come alive." - Klimt.

Artist: MASATO, MINAMI
Title: The Tropics
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Born in Asagaya, Tokyo on 3 March 1944, Japanese folk singer Masato Minami began his musical career after spending a few years bumming around Mexico and the US and taking in the burgeoning beatnik (and related drug) scene. While in the US Minami saw one of Dylans early performances and returned home to Japan to start a band. After the release of two singles (in 1969 and 1970), 1971 saw the release of his debut LP, The Tropics. For this opus Minami enlisted the considerable talents of guitarist Takashi Mizutani (of Les Rallizes Denudes fame) and bassist Haroumi Hosono (of Apryl Fool and Happy End) resulting in this incredibly rare example of early Japanese acid folk. Featuring bonus track It Cant Be Over." -Klimt.

Artist: MYSTIC SIVA
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"Underground American psych at its finest: the now-legendary 1970 privately pressed Mystic Siva LP is one of the most sought-after artifacts in the whole psychedelic rock arena! But back in 1970 Mystic Siva were just a bunch of Detroit teenagers messing around in their parents garage with a Hammond B3 organ and a wah-wah pedal. Little did they know that original copies of this album would one day change hands for thousands of dollars!" -Klimt.

Artist: NAGAI, SEIJI
Title: Electronic Noise Improvisation 1999
Format: Double LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $35.00
2011 vinyl reissue of 1999 CD. "After spending the first half of the 1970s globetrotting with Asias premiere avant-garde band--Takehisa Kosugis Taj Mahal Travellers (where Seiji Nagai played trumpet and keyboards)--Nagai continued to study and play music, particularly Indian music (drones) and electronic/computer generated music. In 1999 he finally released Electronic Noise Improvisation, with the help of Koichi Watanabe, Koji Kawai and Minoru Yonemoto. Here, as in the days of TMT, Nagai concentrates on creating dense drones, but this time his instruments are computers and a host of electronic gadgets, as well as electronic mandolin and piano." -Klimt.

Artist: POPOL VUH
Title: Affenstunde
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $25.00
"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). Numbered edition of 500 copies." -Klimt.

Artist: SUN RA
Title: The Mystery of Being
Format: Triple LP Boxset
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $58.00
...QUARTET "Subtitled: Voice Studio Rome 2,7,8,13 January 1978. Sun Ras legendary 1978 Italian studio sessions, now available together for the first time ever on vinyl! Long sought-after by collectors, these extremely rare studio sessions were originally released in 1978 as two double LPs (New Steps and Other Voices, Other Blues) on the mysterious Italian jazz label, Horo Records. They have never been reissued on vinyl (and only partially reissued on CD) until now! With the help of trumpet player, Michael Ray, drummer, Luqman Ali and saxophonist John Gilmore, Ra kicks off the quartet sessions with the classic My Favorite Things, which features some superlative playing by Gilmore, while Ra pounds away on an old upright studio piano. In fact, for the first two sides Ra plays mostly piano, while on sides C and D, he sticks more to his new Crumar Multiman, an Italian-made synthesizer that Ra had purchased during the tour. These sessions are also interesting because they give listeners a chance to hear Ra concentrating on primarily his own compositions--many of which (i.e. Rome At Twilight Along The Tiber) were inspired by his time spent in Italy--but in a more intimate Arkestra-less jazz setting. Fans will be clamouring to get their hands on this before it disappears again for another 30 years." -Klimt

Artist: TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS
Title: Live At The Moderna Museet In Stockholm, 1st & 9th July 1971
Format: Double LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $35.00
"Recorded on July 1 and 9, 1971 in the geodesic dome at the Utopia & Visions 1871-1981 exhibition at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Takehisa Kosugis Taj Mahal Travellers were the premiere Japanese experimental rock band of the 1970s. The band, heavily influenced by Fluxus, used electronic effects and a host of unusual instruments to create a series of improvised drones. Kosugi went on to become the music director for the Merce Cunningham Dance Company." -Klimt.

Artist: TREES
Title: Live!
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Extremely rare live in studio recordings of one of Englands most superlative female-fronted acid folk bands, recorded in 1971 and 1972 with DJ Bob Harris for BBC Radio 1. Formed in London in 1969, Trees have been likened to a more psychedelic Fairport Convention (with the amazing Celia Humphris taking the role of Sandy Denny). These are mostly tracks that never appeared on either one of their studio albums (The Garden Of Jane Delawney and On The Shore both released on CBS in 1970) making it an especially significant addition to their repertoire." -Klimt.

Artist: TRIO
Title: The Trio
Format: Double LP
Label: Klimt
Country: USA
Price: $35.00
"Featuring two American ex-pats on bass (Barre Phillips) and drums (Stu Martin), and English saxophonist (John Surman), The Trio is a monster 2LP of avant-garde and free jazz originally released on the Dawn label in 1970. By the time this double album was recorded, the various band members had developed quite a pedigree having played with the likes of Archie Shepp, Paul Bley, Bob James, Mike Westbrook, Attila Zoller, Gong, Marion Brown, and others. Their experience and expertise are visible here as the group steams through four sides with not a dud in sight. An absolutely fiery set of classic free-jazz reissued on vinyl by the folks at Klimt." - Klimt.

Price: $25.00
"Japanese guitarist Naoki Zushi was a founding member of 80s noise rock legends Hijokaidan, and has played on many albums with psychedelic folk group Nagisa Ni Te, as well as recording under his own name since the late 80s. His third solo album, appropriately titled III, was originally released on CD only, in 2005. A beautiful piece of meditative and progressive folk-rock that harkens back to the best albums of the 1970s, III is issued here on LP for the first time by Klimt." - Klimt.
