ReR Sale 2020.

Dear friends

Many of our best releases are just sitting on the shelf here because money is tight and mostly people are buying only what they know.

So the obvious titles continue to sell, while some of the most interesting don't.

Therefore, to make experimental listening a bit more practical while the government fails to see the elephant in the room on the economy, all the listed titles are yours for £5 each - so long as you order a minimum of four (£20) (otherwise the new, opportunistically unhelpful, postage costs make it impossible).

Go on ... now is the time.

(some non-ReR titles also available as part of the sale).

SUN RA: Disco 3000

Restored to its original luminous form, this was one of Ra's great classic era releases - with a band in radically stripped-down form: John Gilmore, Michael Ray (trumpet) and the minimal but perfect Luqman Ali (drums). Ra plays piano and a lot of electronic keyboar... more »

KALASH, DIRAR: Of Quietude

Another great, in fact important, release from Discus. I quote from them: Dirar Kalash is an improvising musician from Ramallah in Palestine, where opportunities to perform are non-existent; even access to an instrument is at present impossible. This recording was m... more »

WOODBURY, BRIAN: Rhapsodies and Filigrees

RAVENSTINE, ALLEN: Crossing Daylight (with the Cane Run Orchestra)

These are ambiguous, hovering compositions for a small chamber group - air-tinting, incidental, cinematic swatches of sound, ephemeral and unattached, like sonic fire-lanterns drifting into oblivion. Performed by Victor Morales and the Cane Run Orchestra. Only avai... more »

Historic numbered art edition: 14 CDs, book and box [£70] pe/box

We are very slowly moving toward a number that may make this release possible but we are not there yet...

The Rock experiments of Eastern Europe were no less interesting (though they were somewhat rarer) than those in the West, but they went undocumented for years - they made no commercial or official CDs and could not tour. Concerts were rare even in their own countries. Outside, to all intents and purposes, they didn’t exist. To begin to redress this lack, in the late ‘80s, Recommended launched Points East, a label dedicated only to this music. Because of its historical importance - and musical excellence - we plan to manufacture a very limited edition of the 8 PE LPs (re-mastered on CD), plus 3 or 4 extra CDs filling in further details of the music of the various territories in that time, mostly taken from other Recommended releases as yet not reissued - including the extraordinary ‘Raab’ and Zygmunt Krauze’s luminous ‘Folk Music’- plus a couple of CDs with samples of other groups from the time and new materials by the original artists. All the CDs will be in facsimile edition, fully re-mastered, in a box with a fat book outlining the way it was in the old East and the way it is now, as well as a more general overview of experimental music in each of the territories. In other words this will be an historic documentation of a missing part of the history of progressive and experimental music, a documentation much needed. It will be made to our usual standards and very thoroughly documented, but we want to make it as cheap as possible - since this for art’s sake; it’s certainly not a commercial proposition. So we will try to keep the 12 CDs, box and book down to £58 - close to cost. However, origination, manufacturing and production costs will be huge, and we will only be able to make it if there is sufficient interest and enough pledged advance orders. To that end, if you are interested in this project, please subscribe – just write in and say you want your name put down, we will not take any money until and unless the box is actually realised. If and when we reach a viable number, we will announce the issue, confirm your subscriptions and go ahead.
