  • I guess it would be unfair to call Solution a second rate version of their country mates Focus but there are a lot of similarities.  Originally released in 1971, Solution's debut offers up some fine flute driven progressive rock with more than a little bit of Soft Machine/Canterbury touches.  Flautist Tom Barlage doesn't quite hit the pyrotechnics of Thijs Van Leer but overall there is some nice energy present between the flute and keys.  Vocals crop up but they tend to get out of the way.  The Solution titles were previously available in mutilated compilations.  This Esoteric edition features the original cover art, complete tracks, and detailed liner notes.

  • Triode were probably the most unadulterated rock band on the long defunct French jazz label Futura.  They were an instrumental quintet focusing on the flute work of Michel Edelin.  Wisps of Caravan, Traffic, Jethro Tull and even Jade Warrior will float through the air when you listen.  Highly recommended."TRIODE were a French band who released this album back in 1971.This is an instrumental record with no keyboards which intrigued me to say the least. The flute and fuzzed out guitar takes turns leading the way(mostly flute though) while the bass,percussion and drums support. I must admit that this album didn't really remind me of any band in particular,this is just good intrumental music."Magic Flower" is bass,drum and flute led early. I like the drumming after 2 minutes. Just a great sounding opener. "Misomaque" is more uptempo and dynamic as the drums,bass and guitar lead before the flute joins in.Guitar to the fore 2 minutes in to end it."Moulos Grimpos" opens with bass and drums and it's laid back. Flute joins in as it stays mellow. Some fuzzed out guitar after 2 minutes. "Blasha" is uptempo with bass and drums before the flute and guitar join in.The guitar lights it up before 2 1/2 minutes then the flute returns before 4 minutes."Lilie" is a groovy number with some far out flute while the drums and bass support.The guitar replaces the flute after 2 1/2 minutes then the flute returns before 4 minutes. "Ibiza Flight" has a good bass intro as the drums help out.Guitar and flute then join the party.A guitar solo after 2 minutes that lasts a minute then it settles back.It picks up again late."Adeubis" is a short flute led piece.I do like when the guitar comes in though before a minute. "Come Together" is THE BEATLES track that they have covered.Interesting to hear that flute-voice-over early on in this instrumental version. I like the fuzzed out guitar after 2 minutes and later before 4 minutes."Chimney Suite" is by far the longest track at under 9 minutes. Flute,percussion and bass lead as the guitar joins in quickly. Flute leads after 3 1/2 minutes then the guitar returns after 5 1/2 minutes and proceeds to rip it up.The flute is back leading before 7 minutes." - ProgArchives

  • New 24 bit remaster of the 2nd masterpiece from the Canterbury ensemble. New lineup features John Greaves on bass and the usual assortment of guests including Georgie Born on cello. "Dreams Wide Awake" features one of the most savage assaults on an organ you will ever hear. Dave Stewart's solo is so intense you won't believe your ears. A brilliant album from beginning to end. Essential.

  • The band's 1972 sophomore release features a new bassist/vocalist.  The overall production has a touch more polish.  The Canterbury influences are still quite pronounced (in fact maybe more so than the debut) but you'll also hear influences like Traffic become quite apparent.  Organ is a bit beefier sounding and the flute/sax ratio has shifted from the first album - sax seems to be more prevalent moving the band away from the Focus comparisons.  I'm not a huge fan of the vocals - I find when the band shuts up an plays they really shine.  This new edition on Esoteric features the original cover art, complete album (the old version was missing "Fever"), and detailed liner notes.

  • "In September, 1968, the Soft Machine had just finished their second, exhaustive tour of the USA supporting the Jimi Hendrix Experience. At the conclusion of the tour, vocalist/drummer/multi-instrumentalist Robert Wyatt stayed, working on recordings in Hollywood and New York City. Upon Robert's return to England, these documents lay forgotten... Now, for the first time, all four of the recordings Robert made in '68 are collected together and released, all carefully worked on and presented in the best possible sound quality – and the recorded sound here is surprisingly excellent overall! The bulk of the material - the two long suites - were later re-recorded by the Soft Machine; Rivmic Melodies later became the basis of side one on Volume II (1969) and Moon In June showed up as Robert's showcase on Third (1970). These tracks serve as a template for the post-psychedelic Soft Machine's career as founders of European jazz/rock and the entire release is a precursor to Robert's post-band, solo career."

  • New 24 bit remastered edition of the classic first album from one of the great Canterbury bands. National Health was the post-Hatfield And The North band assembled by Dave Stewart, Phil Miller, Pip Pyle, and Neil Murray (well...there were lots of other members like Bruford and Hillage before this album was recorded). Special guests include Alan Gowen (Gilgamesh), Jimmy Hastings (Caravan), and Amanda Parsons (Hatfield). "Tenemos Roads" is one of the great Canterbury tunes...EVER! Essential.

  • One of 2000's most important releases. Stunning archival release of previously unreleased material from the Canterbury legends. Gilgamesh was the sister band to Hatfield & The North. Led by the late keyboardist Alan Gowen, the band travelled the same eclectic path as Hatfield intersecting so often that the two bands ultimately merged for a series of gigs! The sessions on this disc were recorded during the period 1973-75 and the overall sound quality is remarkably high. This is the pure essence of what progressive rock meant in the 70s.

  • Second album from this great Spanish prog band of the 70s. Predominantly an instrumental album, this is complex progressive rock that borders on fusion in a Canterbury sort of way but with touches of The Nice. Steve Feigenbaum astutely compared them to Egg and I can hear where he is coming from although there is one part that sounds disturbingly like Aquatarkus. Great disc."This second album – released in 1974 – by Fusioon is one of the masterpieces from the 70s Catalan / Spanish psychedelic / progressive scene.Produced by the legendary Josep Llobell, you’ll find here plenty of Hammond, Moog, effects, solid rhythm section, distorted lead guitar, highly inventive arrangements...RIYL: Soft Machine, Egg, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, The Nice, Focus, GoblinMaster tape sound.Original artwork.Deluxe insert with detailed liner notes in English / Spanish / Catalan plus rare photos."Tracklist:Side A:Farsa Del Buen Vivir – Contrastes – TritonsSide B:Diálogos – Concerto Grosso

  • New 24 bit remastered edition of the second album from this essential Canterbury band. Gilgamesh was the sister band to Hatfield & The North that walked the same ground minus the humor (or vocals). The late Alan Gowen was a brilliant keyboardist and is matched here by Hugh Hopper, Trevor Tompkins and Phil Lee.

  • New remastered edition gets the full Mark Powell/Esoteric treatment. Not much needs to be said about this classic Canterbury debut. Features three bonus tracks.

  • New album from this Norwegian instrumental quartet, now signed to Rune Grammofon.  Panzerpappa are often labeled under the RIO category and based on my listening experience its more wishful thinking than anything.  This is beautiful instrumental progressive rock with some quirky undercurrents.  I'm hearing music that evokes the Canterbury spirit.  The core instrumentation features sax, keys, bass, guitar, and drums.  The band is also augmented by a number of guest musicians, most notably are Michel Berckmans (Univers Zero) and Ketil Einarsen (White Willow/Jaga Jazzist).  Bands that are an obvious influence would include National Health, Samla Mammas Manna, and Soft Machine.  This one is a keeper for sure.  Highly recommended.

  • One of the rarer albums on the French jazz label Futura.  Travelling was one of a handful of albums on the label that really were more of a rock album than a jazz record.  The band was a trio led by keyboardist Yves Hasselmann.  He jumps between piano and Hammond organ and gets a real dirty sound out of it that remnds of Dave Stewart.  Great stuff if you are a fan of the Canterbury sound."Souffle Continu presents the seventh release in its series of reissues from the catalog of the cult French underground Futura label. Travelling was a keyboard-based trio that probably represents best what the Futura's RED series was about -- jazz, rock, and experimental inquisitiveness. Often described as the French answer to the Canterbury scene, Voici la Nuit Tombée contains echoes of Soft Machine, Caravan, and Supersister, especially on the sidelong opening track, "Voici la Nuit Tombée." It's the album's tour de force, with its fuzz bass, distorted organs, piano jazz, and complex meter. This is the first-ever vinyl reissue of this pioneering 1973 prog jewel, fully licensed by Futura founder Gérard Terronès. Presented in a 350-gram reverse-printed sleeve with obi strip. Limited edition of 500."
