Led by Japanese guitar-hero Kazuo Takeda, Creation (initially called Blues Creation) was instrumental in opening up Japan to the new sounds pouring in from the West. After doing time (circa 1972) on the London music scene—where he befriended Mountain’s Felix Pappalardi—Takeda returned home to work on his own music. Over the next few years Takeda’s Creation became one of the hottest bands in Tokyo, releasing several successful LPs for EMI-Japan, including 1976’s Creation with Felix Pappalardi recorded in the US, and this long out-of-print “direct-to-disc” album, recorded in October 1978. Takeda apparently got the idea of recording directly to disc...
Recorded in 1976 at Bearsville Studio in NYC, this album was the result of a collaboration between Japanese guitar hero Kazuo Takeda of Creation and American bassist Felix Pappalardi of Mountain. Pappalardi and Takeda first began hanging out in London in the early seventies, a friendship which soon led to Mountain touring Japan alongside Creation in 1975. This in turn led to Creation being invited to the US by Pappalardi to record their next album, 1976’s Creation with Felix Pappalardi. This album is a collection of tunes written by Pappalardi, Pappalardi’s wife, Gail Collins, and Takeda, and finds Pappalardi playing...
180 gram LP + bonus CD of the albumSerge Gainsbourg, the original bad boy of French pop, the man all women wanted…and all men wanted to be. He updated the French chanson and made it hip again, infusing it with the youth culture of the late 50s and 60s: one that was ruled by jazz, drugs and free love. The music of Gainsbourg heralded in this new era and his earliest songs became the soundtrack for a generation of Parisian youths. This LP is a compilation of Gainsbourg’s best material from 1959-1962, recorded when Gainsbourg was still just another struggling...

60's Norweigian psych-pop act 1 2 6's only album released in 1967. They were a much underrated psyche pop band existed short period of time. The album reminds of little bit Bob Dylan with psychedelic trippy mood. Highly recommended!
Dig the bare principles of unparalleled hippie euphoria! A climax of communal head sounds with disturbing Indian vibes in a deranged marriage of ambient absurdity and financial hallucinations. Spearheaded by Reality D. Blipcrotch, this San Francisco bunch of longhairs and friends of Jefferson Airplane realised their potent raga potential in 1972 with the extraordinary debut album 'Come'. Exploding B-sides, whistling teapots and pop-up marijuana leaves is only half the story...welcome to the world of 1. This is a professionally re-mastered original sound recording with informative background liners and rare archival photos.

That is none other than Los Angeles based artist Nicolas Pascal Raicevik (1933-1994), aka 107-34-8933, aka Head, aka Nik Pascal, aka Nik Raicevic. Besides his hitting the bongoes on the Stones album, Nik was a great artist on his own, both as a painter...

As he grew up on 107th Street in HarlemYC he and his mates played a game called Stickball during the day which is a street variation of baseball originating from the New York area while at night he rehearsed with a doo wop ensemble named THE LATIN CHORDS...

This 1974 release continued in the vein of perfectly produced idiosyncratic pop music but with a more complex progressive edge. Including the hit singles "Wall Street Shuffle" and "Silly Love," this reissue also contains two extra bonus B sides.

Completing this brand new package are the four tracks from the ultra-rare French Riviera EP - three of which are unique stereo mixes.

You're Gonna Miss Me
Originally released in 1968 by the International Artists label. An incomplete album tentatively titled The Beauty And The Beast was released with a different title after the band’s demise. Its finest moments are “Never Another” (one of the best and most demented tracks ever recorded and the only one on the album written by the usual songwriting duo of Roky Erickson and Tommy Hall) and “May The Circle Remain Unbroken” (a haunting Roky composition that may be the strangest thing this great band ever cut).
The Elevators’ second album and also their best, originally released in 1967 by International Artists. Includes the epic “Slip Inside this House” and an excellent cover of Dylan’s “Baby Blue”. Also available on CD (SPOT 522).

It's been sought-after by collectors for the three club friendly tunes within its grooves: Backed Up Against The Wall', Concrete Jungle' and Need You Girl'. The album was brought to Fantasy by Donald Byrd who was enjoying great success with his his productions for the Blackbyrds for them and his own jazz fusion albums on Blue Note.

36 Crazyfists is a metal band formed in Anchorage, Alaska. The band's name originates from the Jackie Chan film Jackie Chan and the 36 Crazy Fists. To date the band has released seven studio albums.

This band from Grenoble (France) is composed of a majority of multi-instrumentalists. 4/3 DE TRIO's first album is in the same vein as KING CRIMSON "Red" or ANGLAGARD's masterpieces. The guitar works also have a Joe SATRIANI or Steve VAI touch. Each track has English or French lyrics, built on the traditional pattern stanza followed by a chorus. However, they still remain quite unusual and quite ethereal on the global length of "F4i3lesse" (That can be translated as "Weakness"). Moreover, they don't alter the Progressive rock and in majority instrumental side of this work, impressive of maturity. A trully rock...
Their first 2 singles "Laborer" and "She says" are pieces of pouting prairie punk. In 1969 they had a hit in Canada and the US with "Twilight woman", a lovely song that sounded poppier and slightly folkier than the UK band Tomorrow. The succes of the singles resulted in a release of their one and only album on MGM. This is easily one of the best canadian rock albums ever released featuring excellent material and including pulsating psychedelia, ultra strange tracks as well as a quintessential punk edginess. Strong melodies, great playing and a sympathic production make for a very...

Nine years after 'Back To The Goblin' the four original Goblin-members (Massimo Morante, Fabio Pignatelli, Agostino Marangolo, Maurizio Guarini) continue their comeback with this spectacular 2015 album.
