(Repertoire / G) Includes five bonus tracks from singles, this was originally released in 1971 by Brain in Germany. Hard rock/early progressive rock lots of guitar and organ work. There are a few longer tracks, but most are in the 5-6 minute range, and a few are shorter. If early progressive hard rock stuff floats your boat, this is pretty fine! 14,00 €


KIN PING MEH - No. 2
(Repertoire / G) Includes two bonus tracks from their final single! This was their 2nd and final album, originally released in 1972. They added personnel making the band a triple guitar lineup that still included keyboards. There are a couple of longer tracks, including a cool, underground jam version of The Beatles' 'Come Together', but most are shorter. Also included are a couple of acoustic based numbers, which was surprising at the time. The first album is better, but if early progressive hard rock stuff floats your boat, this is pretty fine! 14,00 €


KIN PING MEH - Chapter 1 - take 5 dreams until kissing time
(Second Battle / G) This first part goes back to Spring of 1970 when a pre-KIN PING MEH group called TAKE FIVE had just recorded five excellent covers of temporary musical highlights as its first promotion material.

This is a great soundboard recording of KPM's 4th concert which makes clear under what kind of circumstances the band had to give its best. 17,00 €


KIN PING MEH - Chapter 3 - sometimes besides Drugson`s trip
(Second Battle / G) The fourth CD is only available as part of the limited box-set (1500 copies). It presents some more titbits from late 1970, which would not have fitted on the other CDs.

KOLLEKTIV - SWF-Sessions Vol. 5 
(Long Hair-G) Kollektiv is well known because of their LP in 1973 on Brain Label, produced by Conny Plank. They produced an incomparable, unmistakeable sound with echoes of Organisation and early Kraftwerk: spacey but melodic, elevated yet rocking, innovative: progressive in the best sense, consequent in the realisation of intent, forging new musical territory without denying its roots. (Code C)


KONG LAVRING - Den 2ndre
(Pan/Nor) Mid 70s Norwegian band. They played Norwegian folk rock, digging deep into the treasure of ancient Norwegian folk songs. Although electrified, the national tonality of the folksongs was kept, as well as the pure and local language. Only few bands like Folque and Convivium travelled along a more or less same road. The band released two heavily overlooked albums in the midst of the late 70s punk/new wave explosion! 18,00 €


KOPPERFIELD - Tales Untold 
(Gear Fab-US) Reissue of ultra rare 1974 LP by Michigan band Kopperfield. Taken from the original mastertapes. Fantastic fast-paced Heavy psychrock with progressive overtones.

KOVAC, ROLAND NEW SET - The Master Said
(GOD-065) 1971/The overtop keyboarder Roland Kovac plays this psychedelic, jazzy instrumental master-work together with Siegfried Schwab (guitar) and Charly Antolini (drums). Great cosmic keyboards drenched psychedelica. (Code C)


KOVAC, ROLAND-NEW SET - Love that 
(Garden of Delights-G) The second album from 1972. Mega rare library. PSYCHEDELIC exploitation album, famous because their inclusion on some UK compilation. Long tracks, organ, guitars to the front. A masterpiece of psychedelia. (Code C)


KRAAN - Andy Nogger 
(EMI-G) The third album from 1974 is a fusion of the styles, leads to the more developed sound of "Andy Nogger". (Code B)


KRAAN - Let it out 
(EMI-G) This album originally release in 1975, make the Kraan sound more commercial, resulting in a patchy album, one that was still uniquely Kraan, but not of the calibre of earlier releases. Subsequent Kraan albums mellowed somewhat, becoming smoother and jazzier and the stable nucleus of the band fragment. (Code B)


KRAAN - Live! 
(EMI-G) Originally comes in double album. Recorded live in Berlin, Quatier Latin, October 1974. Digitally remastered. With photos and liner notes. (Code B)


KRAAN - same

KRAUS, SHMULIK - A Criminal Record
(MIO/Isrl.) Reissue of monster rare Israelian psych album from 1970. Good rock, psych, garage and improvisational jams. The album was recorded during a 48 hour break from imprisonment, along with several guest musicians (CHURCHILLS guitarist Aharom Kaminsky etc.). It's no wonder the music is all about despair, bad justice, suicide etc. Originally released in 1977 in an edition of 300 copies, since then it has become one of the most haunted albums ever made in Israel. Including a Hebrew sung cover of "Mother nature's son"! 17,00 € 


KROKODIL - same
(Second Battle / G) During the early 70's this Swiss KROKODIL was one of the most exciting imports in the German rock scene. Its debut album which was released in 1969, contained blues-inspired rock with many progressive touches. No wonder that KROKODIL was often seen as a Swiss version of the GROUNDHOGS. This album is mega-rare now and hasn't been re-released before. This digipak-CD designed by ex-member Düde Dürst features three bonus-tracks as well. Vinyl-freaks should note that an LP version will follow next spring! 17,00 €


KROKODIL - Swamp
(Second Battle / G) Compared to the band's debut album, "Swamp" presents a less blues orientated sound. This time the Swiss KROKODILes put much more emphasis on virtuosity. Thus Hardy Hepp's violin and far-eastern sitar sounds gained more importance. The timeless melodic writing also brought a different kind of appeal. A great artistic development for the band without ever drifting into the mellow waters of pop clichés! All recordings are digitally re-mastered, and in addition there a two unreleased tracks and a rare soundtrack title as a bonus. Digipak! 17,00 €


KROKODIL - An Invisible World Revealed
(Second Battle / G) KROKODIL goes progressive rock: This album isn't called a 70ies milestone for nothing! You can hardly describe in detail what the band, working closely with sound wizard Dieter Dierks, accomplished here. To put it short: "Invisible World" simply contains each and every trademark of the genre - great song writing, absolutely far out arrangements, highly imaginative solos and psychedelic mellotron and sitar sounds. Digitally re-mastered and with two long sessions as bonus tracks - all in high quality sound. Digipak! 17,00 €


KRYSTYL - same 
(Titanic-G) 1975 / This album is home made guitar psychedelia from Kentucky. A ultimate psychedelic mixture of gentle dreamy passages, heavier acid guitar and wah-wah fuzz along with charmingly teenage vocals. (Code E)


KYRIE ELEISON - Complete Recordings 1974 - 1978
(MIO / IRL) 3 CDs: "Kyrie Eleison was an Austrian band that existed between 1974 to 1979 and then turned into the band Indigo. The music of Kyrie Eleison is greatly inspired by Trespass, Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot-era Genesis. This 3 CD boxed set includes the band's album 'The Fountain Beyond the Sunrise' from 1977, including a studiodemo recording track from 1978, another album that was released only on CD in 1994 called The Blind Windows Suite, which includes the band's initial demo sessions (1974-1975)recordings, and a third CD containing a live show in Vienna from 1975 which includes even moreunreleased material. Also, the box set includes a informative 36-page booklet. The music of Kyrie Eleison is categorised as symphonic prog where classical influences are strong. The bandopened for bands like Van Der Graaf, Amon Düül II, Eela Craig, Collosseum etc. They toured several times through Austria with their concept of a 'Symphonic Rock Theater'." The Fountain Beyond The Sunrise is famous for having been recorded with lots of distortion - it's on the master tape, it was on the original, rare album release, and it was on the reissue of this on CD about a decade ago. (What was the engineer smoking? And why did the band think that this was 'ok'?) While the distortion is still there, the label has done an admirable job of cleaning up the sound to really quite decently acceptable levels - at least if you understand what they started with. The other archival stuff has also been cleaned up. This has always been a really good Genesis styled release, and while the sonics are not fantastic, given what there was to start with, I can't imagine that it's possible that this will ever sound better! 28,00 €
