Rick Lawn

Rick Lawn's POWER OF TEN

A recommendation of the highest order. A classy new release from the man behind the ultra rare "Compass Rises" private press on schoolhouse records, Ohio. These guys should be supported and heard. Drop by Rick's place and find out more ...

Drum Circus

Drum Circus : Magic Theatre.
Recorded 1971, Horst Jankowski.

Killer tune lifted from this rare cd lp. Pointed in the direction of this one by Arkadin and El Reza no less. Papera cannot be played to loud, heavy jazz percussion, short but sweet.

Essential ....
