Vangelis - Beaubourg (Mega Blowout Sale)
"Near the end of the seventies Vangelis began experimenting with new directions and this album was the result. A lot of people hate this album but it's always been one of my favorites. It's all synth swooshes of sound criss crossing a direction he...

Varese, Edgard - The Varese Album 2 x CDs
I think most readers here are familiar with how Edgard Varese was a huge influence on the very young Frank Zappa. So, when I became interested in Zappa, I became interested in Varese and picked this up when I was in high school. It's a fine collection...
Varga, Marian - Solo In Concert
Marian is the keyboardist for Collegium Musicum, and this solo album, recorded in 2003 and released on a small Czech label, has the sort of clasically-inspired keyboard work he is known for, but arranged and performed to work in a solo context. Feature...
Various Artists - Live At The Knitting Factory Volume 2
Various Artists - The BYG Deal
"This is the untold story of the bloodline of a sprawling musical legacy that unites a freakish family of disparate, influential pop-cultural orphans and the estranged surrogate parent that lost-pop forgot it ever knew. Between 1968 and 1974...
Vasconcelos, Nana - Fragments: Modern Tradition
''The world's foremost Brazilian percussionist, Nana's stunning virtuosity is matched only by the originality of his compositional vision. The music here ranges from his trademark solo music to ensemble pieces featuring some of his favorite collaborato...

Velebny, Karel - SHQ
"Early recording (1967) of Eastern European free improvisation, which maintained a strong tension between restraint and the all-out blowing of its Western relatives. Though more traditional postbop inspirations are evident, there is the beautiful...
Velez Glenn - Ramana
Velez is a master percussionist, who specializes in the frame drum (basically a tambourine without the steel jangles). He's one of the greats; in addition to his solo work, he has been a member of Steve Reich's ensemble. I saw him play solo once, and t...
Veljeni Valas - Veljeni Valas
Unique and good album of music by a group (guitar, sax, percussion) that start their life as a strictly improvised group, but by the time they made this, their only album so far, some structures and melodic materials had also found their way into the...
Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground (Mega Blowout Sale)
"Upon first release, the Velvet Underground's self-titled third album must have surprised their fans nearly as much as their first two albums shocked the few mainstream music fans who heard them. After testing the limits of how musically and...
Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat (Mega Blowout Sale)

Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground & Nico (Mega Blowout Sale)
"One would be hard-pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground & Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise...
Venegoni & Co. - Rumore Rosso Vivo
After founding and leading Arti E Mestieri through 2 great albums, guitarist and composer Gigi Venegoni left and started another band, who released 2 albums on Cramps in the late 1970's. They were a more stripped-down band, using keyboards, guitar, bas...
Venegoni, Gigi - Ante Tilt

Venier, Glauco - suona Frank Zappa
The number of bands performing the music of Frank Zappa just continues to explode. I think the appeal is pretty obvious; first of all, the compositions are great, of course. Additionally, Frank and his music managed to find a relatively large audience...
Venus Handcuffs - Venus Handcuffs
Venus Handcuffs is an early, pre-Hail project by Bob Drake and Susanne Lewis, both of whom were working in Thinking Plagyue at the time they were also simultaneously doing this duo work. "Referred to as "a cross between Throbbing Gristle and Nick Cave"...

Vermicelli Orchestra - Anabasis
booklet has a little bit of staining.
Vervloesem, Pierre - Not Even Close
A new release by Pierre is always a cause for joy in Wayside land, as he was the brain behind the much-missed X-Legged Sally and the still currently active Flat Earth Society. This is more of a sketchbook kinda release, as there aren't other musicians...
Vesala, Edward - Rodina
The very obscure 3rd release by this renowned new jazz drummer & composer, surprisingly found on the Finnish 'rock' label Love. Includes Pekka Pory, Tomasz Stanko, Pekka Rechardt & many others.
Vialka - Curiosities of Popular Customs
Recorded and 'sculpted' by Bob Drake, this is a really great release by an exuberant duo who fill a lot of musical space with just baritone guitar & voice and drums and voice. If I had to compare it something, it reminds me a bit of a highly talented p...
Vialka - La Poursuite de L'Excellence
For the moment, this is the latest release by the terrific French duo of Eric Boros (baritone guitar and voice + trumpet) and Marylise Frechevile (drums and voice + keyboards). I have had the great pleasure of seeing them twice, and they amazed me with...
Vialka - Plus Vite Que la Musique

Vialka - Succes Planetaire International
Fourth (?) release by the terrific French duo of Eric Boros (guitar and voice) and Marylise Frechevile (drums and voice). I have had the great pleasure of seeing them twice, and they amazed me with their stupendously tight and humorous music and stage...

Victory Of The Better Man - ...wegen Brot...
The 2nd of two albums by this German fusion/soundscape band. Both their albums were released by the much-missed CMP label, and are among their most obscure releases, but this is really good. Spoken work (poetry by Baudelaire, Roethke, O'Hara, Merwin, e...
Viddal, Mathilde Groos/Chateau Neuf Fri Ensemble - Holding Balance
Fantastically good Norwegian jazz/new music big band led by composer and bass clarinetist/saxophonist Mathilde Groos Viddal. The most obvious comparison would be to Maria Schneider's work, but Mathilde and her ensemble have their own sound. She's...
Viddal, Mathilde Grooss - Come Closer
Fantastically good Norwegian jazz/new music big band led by composer and bass clarinetist/saxophonist Mathilde Groos Viddal. This is their 2nd album. Found some quotes for this one, so you can read someone else gushing instead of me...
Viddal, Mathilde Grooss - Undergroove
Fantastically good Norwegian jazz/new music big band led by composer and bass clarinetist/saxophonist Mathilde Groos Viddal. This is their 3rd album and like all their others, it's an utter corker and a joy. The most obvious comparison would be to...

Vieu Carre - Glispiriti Icorpi Elementi
