Folk Pop Icon MELANIE Takes Center Stage On A Timeless Live Album!

Los Angeles, CA - Melanie, the acclaimed folk pop icon whose performance at the historic Woodstock Festival in 1969 launched her career, continued to captivate audiences long after the counterculture revolution came and went. She’s released 25+ studio albums over the course of her multi-decade career alongside multiple compilations. But it’s always been her live performances that resonated the most with her audience. Now those fans have cause to celebrate as one of her best live recordings is set for release on both CD and, for the first time ever, vinyl!

One Night Only – The Eagle Mountain House is a mesmerizing live performance recorded in the intimate setting of the Eagle Mountain House club in Jackson, NH, in 1984. Much more than a simple concert recording, this release is a musical journey through Melanie's illustrious career, capturing her emotional depth and musical brilliance from her 1971 signature hit “Brand New Key” to her soulful cover of The Stones’ “Ruby Tuesday.” Plus, fans will be thrilled to hear her electrifying performance of the beloved “Lay Down (Candles In The Rain),” a song inspired by her Woodstock performance, that has been a staple of her live set throughout her career. The track is being made available to stream on all major platforms as both a preview of the full concert as well as a big “Thank You” to Melanie fans worldwide.

Rick Wakeman’s “The Prog Years: Redux” 32-Disc Box Set Available February 23, 2024!

Here is some exciting news for those who pre-ordered Rick Wakeman’s “The Prog Years 1973-1977” CD+DVD box set: the expansive collection will now include 17 discs’ worth of never-before-released concert material totaling 300-plus minutes – or a whopping five hours – of live recordings all previously unreleased.

Now known as “The Prog Years: Redux,” the 32-disc box set is back in production, with a brand-new list of content and a new release date of 23rd February 2024. Explaining the decision to overhaul the collection at the 11th hour, compiler Rob Ayling says that he had a duty to do it for the fans:

“Totally out of the blue came a wave of previously unreleased concert recordings. I couldn’t believe it when I discovered them. I generally know what was recorded and what wasn’t – and then to find entire gigs from the 70s that had never before been released… I simply couldn’t ignore them! Especially if they got released later, the fans would rightly ask the question, why weren't these recordings in the ‘Prog Years’ ?

“It was a really tough decision to make, to stop a box set in full production. But it was also a no-brainer to remove releases which have already been available in different formats over the years  and replace them with a trove of music no one will own.

“My feeling is that the true fans will already have most if not all of the previously planned ‘Prog Years’ content, like the Winterland Ballroom and Hammersmith Odeon shows. They have been officially available for years. Yet how many fans have Rick Wakeman’s full 1975 concert from Boston Music Hall, or the opening night of that year’s Japanese tour, with the orchestra, or the Montreux concert from 1979?

“The newly discovered material will replace these recordings in what we’re calling ‘The Prog Years: Redux,’ which now boasts over five hours of previously unreleased music! That, to me, is a game-changer. I know it means fans will have to wait a little longer to receive the box but given that it will contain these newly unearthed gems, I hope everyone will understand why I had to make this decision. I am convinced that everyone will enjoy the gigs as much as I do.

“I also want to thank everyone who has pre-ordered the release for their patience, and promise that it will be worth the wait when ‘The Prog Years: Redux’ lands on your doorstep!”

The previously unreleased discs are:

1). The Six Wives… alternative versions
2). The Three Wives: Radio session, 27 February 1973
3). Boston Music Hall, Massachusetts, 10 October 1975, Part 1

Greg Lake “Magical” Solo Career Spanning Limited Edition 7 CD Box Set Released November 10th on Manticore Records Through Spirit of Unicorn Music

A CELEBRATION OF THE SOLO CAREER OF ONE OF BRITAIN’S MOST REVERED SINGER SONGWRITERS.

FEATURING PERFORMANCES BY GARY MOORE, TOTO, CLARENCE CLEMONS, ROBERT FRIPP, STEVE HOWE, GEOFF DOWNES, KEITH EMERSON, COZY POWELL, CARL PALMER AND MORE.

STRICTLY LIMITED EDITION DELUXE 91-TRACK 7-CD
10” x 10” BOX SET WITH 64 PAGE DISPLAY BOOK FEATURING UNSEEN IMAGES AND INTERVIEWS WITH MANY OF HIS COLLABORATORS

While perhaps best known as the singer, lyricist, composer, bass player, guitarist and producer for one of the most significant and best-selling bands of the 1970s, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Greg Lake was a highly respected singer-songwriter releasing solo and collaborative material spanning four decades. He was also an incredibly in-demand musician playing with The Who, Ringo Starr and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Greg Lake “Magical” is a limited edition seven-disc set that brings together Greg’s solo studio and live material for the first time, along with collaborations with Toto, Gary Moore, Asia, Geoff Downes, Keith Emerson, King Crimson, ELP, Emerson, Lake & Powell and many more.

Presented in a 10” x 10” box, the limited edition seven-CD set has a 64 page coffee table book featuring extensive notes for each album along with unseen photos from the Lake family archive as well as sleeve notes by Jerry Ewing, Editor of Prog Magazine, who speaks with many of Greg’s collaborators about this once-in-a-generation artist.

“Magical” features Greg’s two solo albums, including his hard rock-infused debut, featuring Gary Moore.  Also included are two live albums, including “Songs of A Lifetime” where Greg covers artists such as The Beatles & Elvis Presley as well as a stunning version of The Impressions/Curtis Mayfield classic “People Get Ready”, all of whom inspired him to become such a celebrated songwriter.

The set also features rare tracks and live recordings such as Greg fronting King Crimson supporting The Rolling Stones at the legendary Hyde Park show in 1968, three previously unheard slices of FM Radio gold recorded in the early 80s with Toto,  along with songs from his time with Asia, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Greg Lake Band, Greg Lake’s Ride The Tiger, Emerson & Lake and one of Greg’s first ever recordings fronting The Shame in 1967.

This incredible collection of Greg’s career has been curated with his family’s full involvement and blessing, who have opened their archive to allow for the inclusion of rare material. All the audio within the set has been mastered from the best available sources by renowned engineer Andy Pearce.

Greg Lake “Magical” is a worthy tribute to a unique talent.

Reggae Legends Chalwa’s Extensive Archive of Live Show Recordings and Studio Sessions Streamed Live on NewRootz Radio

Presented by NewRootz Studio streaming live 24/7 on YouTube

Inspired by the Earth, Blues, and Roots Reggae, Chalwa took root in 2005 in the Ancient Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. This 8-member Mountain Reggae powerhouse packs it full of roots meditations and high grade jams that awaken your spirit and soul! Chalwa’s high energy shows are one of a kind, featuring smooth vocals, percussion, bass, lead guitar, keys and saxophone. Their extensive collection of original music is interlaced with music from some of the Greats including, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Bunny Wailer and even Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead.

After hitting the scene, Chalwa toured throughout the southeastern US and Jamaica. They have shared the stage with reggae greats such as: The Wailers, Steel Pulse, Midnite, Groundation, The Meditations, SOJA, Pato Banton and many more. Chalwa released their first CD in 2009 and were voted one of the top World Music Reggae bands by the ASHEVILLE entertainment paper the MountainXpress in 2010. Chalwa recorded 3 more albums over the past 10 years, continuing to cultivate and grow both their sound and impressive crew. Chalwa performs every Sunday at French Broad River Brewing in Asheville and every Tuesday on-line from New Rootz Studio in Canton, N.C.

In 2020, Chalwa released their latest album “NewRootz”, honoring their producer and engineer J Ferris of NewRootz Studio, dropping a powerful album that solidified their current sound. Surfing the resonant frequencies, Chalwa followed the release with 2 more singles, “Questions” and “What’s it Gonna Be?”, as they watched the world turn upside down in 2020… They became busier than ever in the studio. Chalwa has blasted both themselves and NewRootz Studio into a new realm of recording sessions & releases, putting them on track to create the biggest archive collection of their time.

Says producer, sound engineer and radio and video curator J Ferris, “Most bands put out a CD - we put out a radio station! Featuring 800 live songs in rotation including videos and extra stuff like animated visuals and AI art, which I do. I had all these live recordings I recorded from the past 12 years along with studio live performances. Also included are the band’s latest singles which are studio recordings.”

Prog Legends UK’s 10th Anniversary Release of “Curtain Call (2023 Remaster)” Concert Video

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Eddie Jobson has announced the first worldwide release of “Curtain Call (2023 Remaster)” by the legendary progressive-rock supergroup UK. Previously only available in Japan, this one-off 2013 reunion concert in Tokyo features UK founding members Eddie Jobson and the late, great John Wetton, along with new-generation virtuosos Alex Machacek and super-drummer Marco Minnemann, and captures the only ever live performance of both UK studio albums “UK” and “Danger Money” in their entirety.

Released on both Blu-ray and DVD in a single package, this rare concert footage has been fully remixed and remastered for worldwide release on May 19th.

UK were a British progressive rock supergroup originally active from 1977 to 1980. The band was founded by bass guitarist John Wetton and drummer Bill Bruford, formerly the rhythm section of King Crimson, along with former Roxy Music and Frank Zappa violinist/keyboardist/composer Eddie Jobson; guitarist Allan Holdsworth completed the original lineup. Bruford and Holdsworth left in 1978, and Bruford was replaced by drummer Terry Bozzio. Jobson, Wetton and Bozzio reformed UK for a world tour in 2012, with further Jobson-Wetton reunion tours extending through to 2015. Throughout their brief existence, UK’s music was characterised by skilled musicianship, complex harmony, odd time signatures, electric violin solos, and unusually varied synthesizer (Yamaha CS-80) sonorities. The band spans various genres ranging from progressive rock to jazz fusion.

Two New EPs From Held By Trees Recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios Released Exclusively by InnerSleeve.com

Featuring Paul McCartney/Pretenders guitar legend Robbie McIntosh!

Hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed debut album, “Solace”, instrumental project Held By Trees is excited to be releasing two new EPs this year on Sound Canyon Records through InnerSleeve.com recorded at Peter Gabriel’s famous Real World Studios, the first EP is comprised of live versions of five tracks from “Solace”. The six-piece live iteration of Held By Trees brings together three of the Talk Talk/Mark Hollis alumni that contributed to “Solace” including renowned guitarist Robbie McIntosh. The band recorded playing all together in the ‘Big Room’ at Real World in November 2022, a week after their debut live performances.

The second EP is an entirely new suite of pieces themed on the transition from daylight to darkness. Entitled “Eventide”, it was tracked live at Real World Studios and then additional layers were added by musicians in America and Canada, by old friends of project leader David Joseph.

The twin EPs will be released on separate CDs and as two sides of one vinyl pressing by new American record label, Sound Canyon and their retail arm www.InnerSleeve.com

The new material sees Held By Trees continue to create instrumental music characterized by skilled improvisation over spacious, epic arrangements. The music draws on the influence of Van Morrison and John Martyn, alongside their usual late Talk Talk and Pink Floyd references. The live versions of “Solace” tracks bring a fresh intensity to the music, with a heavier vibe created by the band in real time.

The main musicians who worked on the new EPs are…
Laurence Pendrous - piano
James Grant - bass, double bass
Robbie McIntosh - guitar
David Joseph - guitar
Andy Panayi - flute, clarinet, saxophone
Paul Beavis - drums

Pre-orders available at https://www.innersleeve.com/en-gb/collections/held-by-trees

Greek Electronic Music Artist Billy Yfantis Releases The Soundtrack Of His Performance At North America’s Longest Running Experimental Music Festival!

A 14-minute hypnotic composition inspired by artists like Tangerine Dream, Sunn O)), and Merzbow.

Athens, Greece - Experimental musician and author Billy Yfantis releases his new digital single entitled “The Universe Collapses (Norcal Noisefest 2022 Performance).” The new digital single includes Billy’s performance at Norcal Noisefest 2022. The Norcal Noisefest is the longest running experimental/noise/outsider sound art festival in the USA, founded in 1995 in Sacramento, CA. The 2022 edition of the festival took place from September 30 through October 2, with live performances on Friday September 30 and Saturday October 1 at Cafe Colonial, plus an all-virtual day on Sunday October 2.

Billy appeared virtually on the 3rd day of the festival by presenting a new experimental composition through the use of a unique organismic analogue synthesizer. The term "organismic" refers to the usage by the synthesizer of some fundamental principles underlying living creatures. “Organismic” means that the synthesizer’s modules interact with each other, and the behaviour of the instrument simulates a live conversation between living creatures.

Billy Yfantis commented on the release: “For this festival performance, I used a special-made synthesizer that has mechanical parts that simulate the dialogue between living organisms. My main scope was to establish a dialogue between machines and present it to a human-oriented event: a music festival. This mechanical dialogue between machines sounds like a post-apocalyptic soundtrack to my ears, and I can imagine it as the soundtrack of the universe’s collapse.” Billy Yfantis plans to release his 6th full album soon, a Neoclassical/Cinematic album inspired by European mythology. Stay tuned for more information!

Moreover, Billy has authored books on music, business and science while from times to times he speaks about the electronic governance at scientific conferences all over Europe.

Famous Quotes (What Others Have Said)

Krautrock legend Harald Grosskopf (Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze, Cosmic Jokers): “I always like electronic music made by younger musicians who consequently follow their personal instinct, rather than trying to copy what’s already been made in the past, in the spirit of: Whenever you meet Buddha kill him. Keep on tracking Billy!”

Tom McLoughlin (Director of the movie “Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives”): “I really dug his music!! VERY cool stuff!!”

Phil Lanzon (Uriah Heep): “I like the track 'Waiting for the battle.' Great riff. I can see this as soundtracks to Psycho - punk movies and the like.”

Bobby Borg, (Music Business Author, Consultant, Professor): “This is fkn bad ass music that everyone needs to hear… imagine the coolest meditation music out there and the coolest sci-fi movie soundtrack rolled into one! Stream it and trip out today.

Steve Whitfield (Producer and engineer of The Cure, The Mission UK): “This music is crying out to be used in films but at the same time it's great to just sit back listen and immerse yourself in them without any moving images and let your imagination run wild!”

Snowy Shaw (ex-King Diamond, Therion, Mercyful Fate): “I didn't know what to expect when I had this album sent to me by the composer Billy Yfantis. To be perfectly honest, 9 times out of 10 when people send me their new album it makes me feel a bit uneasy and awkward. Firstly because I don't listen an awful lot to contemporary music and secondly, even less to other metal & hard rock artists due to lack of interest and I don't wanna hurt their feelings. I don't mean that in any rude, disrespectful or arrogant way, but I'm into creating my own music, not so much into consuming music of my peers. However, this was something entirely different. I'm not even sure it's considered music, but it's the kind of atmospheric and meditative type of sounds that I've been listening a helluva lot over the past few years to try relax and cope with my stressful, turbulent life, constantly on the verge of being burnt out. That being said, I liked it and it made me calm, mindful and sleepy. Presumably the worst kind of reaction my metalhead peers would wanna hear about their new album but in this case it's probably the best sort of compliment one could get.

It couldn’t be easier.

SURELY THIS HAS TO BE THE WAY FORWARD TO GIVE FANS OLD AND NEW THE BEST WAY TO VIEW AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC…A VERY SENSIBLE ALTERNATIVE TO THOSE PLATFORMS THAT ALREADY EXIST.” – Rick Wakeman

Given the demise of the DVD as a consumable item, no more support at retail for the format or end user demand. Rick Wakeman has always been seen as an innovator and pioneer, not only as a musician, but as a businessman. The logical solution was to commission his team to build an online platform for all his films, videos. Rather than a subscription based approach (ie Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Apple TV). or an ad based system - (ie You Tube). Rick has pioneered a Pay Per View solution, that way the fans can choose and pay for only the film or video they want to see and not get hooked into a monthly fee or subscription.
