v/a CLOUD CUCKOOLAND CD
*** RECOMMENDED We sell a copy of Cloud Cuckooland every time we play it in the shop -- no hyperbole! This is a wild & varied yet cohesive compilation of primo pre-1974 krautrock released by the brains of B-Music/Finders Keepers. Take a chance if you're the adventuresome type.
DON CHERRY Brown Rice CD
*** RECOMMENDED One of Don Cherry's best works by any stretch, Brown Rice is a blazing & trippy set of psychedelic jazz. Four long tracks that'll peel a layer off your brain under the right circumstances, this album is strangely hard to come by. Sleep not!
FRONTIER RUCKUS Deadmalls & Nightfalls CD
*** Perhaps you've heard of these Michigan sons! People just love 'em & why wouldn't they??
PHAROAH SANDERS Karma CD
*** Considered by most to be Sanders finest work, "The Creator Has a Master Plan" is worth the price of admission alone -- a half-hour octet recording that ranges from peaceful & glorious to earth shaking & chaotic. By far, one of the finest "spiritual jazz" recordings.
SHACKLETON Fabric 55 CD
*** "Finally, the enigmatic master of outernational dystopia and psychedelic rhythms turns in an outstanding Fabric mix of exclusive, unreleased material & stone-cold classics from his Skull Disco and Perlon releases."
THE STOOGES A Thousand Lights: Live In 1970 CD
*** "These are probably the only known live recordings of the Stooges from the 1970s. Deluxe long box packaging with stunning unseen photos of the band shot by Fan Club girl Natalie Stooge-ling."
