Back to Jean-Charles Capon in Univers Solitude from 1972
Absolutely stunning cover art for a beautiful album title, but from the hand of--  who? anyone in the know please comment. Requested a long time ago, I guess better late than never in the immortal words of Happy The Man... I've covered so much of his work b...

Private Pressed Steven Bard Through the Fog of 1977
After the former post's great unknown US private press here's another, located this time in the acoustic Xian dept. of the department store (obviously not Sears).  I can't repeat often enough how surprised I am that there are still so many good albums worth...

Gary Epps' Thru my Eyes, 1980
It certainly seems outrageous that people can still dig up great albums, totally unknown to even the "cratedigger" cognoscenti, after the innumerable from this period that have been resuscitated year after crazy year, in terms of Greek philosophy more than ...

A lost French chansonnier album that recalls the beautiful Xavier Gernet I posted long ago, though lacking a song as decisively unforgettable as Mimmie , or alternatively Gerard Pisani's great  Loup des Steppes , chanson combined with folk and a touch of ja...

"Poems from China" by Tom Kristensen first published in 1922.   Music by Thorup. Looking over the information on this releas e I was surprised to see it was released to CD some time ago, accordingly, I won't have a link.... A nice surprise to see Knudsen on...

Norwegian Band Vanessa, in 1975's City Lips and 1976's Black and White
This band blew me away when I first heard them, very early on in my prog initiation, since they sounded so much like my favourite Orchestra Njervudarov. Their first record shockingly sells for several hundred euros now, though it seems like a basic funk-fus...
