Tiger Hatchery
Breathing In The Walls

Imagine cracking an egg only to be confronted by a tiger! Chicago’s Tiger Hatchery are a power jazz trio, which basically means they play jazz but with a bit bit of a noise-rock slant. Rooted in the tradition of free jazz by Mike Forbes’ saxophone, the meaty rock comes from the powerfu...view item »

Robbie Basho
Live in Forli, Italy 1982

It’s taken a few decades for the late Robbie Basho to start developing a deserved reputation. This 1982 recording captures an intimate Italian show full of stunning playing amid some awkward multilingual patter, and a soaring devotional vocal on the closing California Raga. A fine setting of music that is essential in ever...view item »

Charles Manson
Lie: The Love and Terror Cult

Legendary label ESP-Disk here reissue one of their most infamous albums: the music of the actual Charles Manson, recorded before his incarceration. Lie: The Love and Terror Cult is a strange listen: on the one hand it is a pretty good-sounding suite of 60’s folk-rock from the counter culture. On the other hand, it...view item »

A legendary artist on a legendary label: Sun Ra's 1965 Heliocentric Worlds sessions for ESP-Disk, here reissued in full.

Buck Curran
Immortal Light

The legendary New York label ESP Disk has the debut solo album from Arborea man Buck Curran ready for release, and it certainly is a treat. Buck has an incredible way of handling a guitar, recalling 70’s British folk, Fahey-esque American styles and much more besides, and ...view item »

Albert Ayler
Spiritual Unity

An entirely essential album here, reissued by the original label, ESP-Disk. Spiritual Unity was the record that made the world take notice of Albert Ayler, and you can hear why. Right from the first notes, Ayler declares his intent to lead his trio into the territory of no-holds-barred, freely improvise...view item »

Sun Ra
The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra : Vol. 2

This is another incredible record from Sun Ra this time the follow up to the great "Heliocentric World of Sun Ra Vol 1". The album starts with the incredible "The Sun Myth" which is 17 minutes of Sun Ra at his best. This is also great as the track continually evolves and changes always keeping the music fresh. This is followed by the great track...view item »

Sun Ra
The Heliocentric Worlds of Sun Ra : Vol. 1

Way-out 1965-era Sun Ra session, with his brave Arkestra in tow of course. The Heliocentric Worlds Of Sun Ra: Vol 1 is a hell of a trip, at times creeping subtly along, and at other times blasting out with passages of mad free-blowing. Notable for also featuring the entire Arkestra swit...view item »

Eli Keszler
Oxtirn

Rel Records main man has joined the ranks of legends such as Albert Ayler and Sun Ra by inclusion on the legendary Brooklyn label ESP-Disc.
