Good sources for oddball recordings


I figured that some of you might have good sources for out of the ordinary recordings, both new and used. Here's a few that i've been able to find quite a few out of print goodies at and at pretty reasonable prices. I'd love to find some others, so let's help each other out here. If possible, please include a clickable link for us lazy folks : )

If you don't know how to add a link to your post, read the "tips and tricks" below the window that you type your text into that is labeled "markup tags". It will give you step by step instructions.

Over 3000 historic recordings...
Smithsonian Folkways Recordings

I was able to locate some Calypso Jazz there.
I've found a few rare gems, including compilations (for single not-so-big hits from 50's, 60s and 70's) on e-bay and half.com.

Sorry for the markup tag error, here is the corrected link...
Smithsonian Folkways Recordings
http://www.artist-shop.com
http://www.disciplineglobalmobile.com

Two sites for mostly independent progressive music. The former is more diverse (includes Camel, etc.), the latter includes the King Crimson family of musicians.
Try cdbaby.com for a huge selection of lessor known artists, that include many great albums.
OK, slight veer off track. Does anyone know where I can find a (now out-of-print) copy of Fred Lane's 2 LP's ? I have tried many sights (have avoided search services due to costs).

If you want "oddball recordings" check him out if you can find him !

Great free-form-jazzy-crazy-poetic-rambling sh*t !

Thanks for good suggestions above, too. Most I knew, a couple I didn't.

Hey, sorry for the clog....I found they were reissued on CD ! Check out Amazon, they have it !

I guess it's been a while since I looked for them.
Some good sources for diverse and interesting musical 'stuff' that I've come across:

www.dustygroove.com

www.forcedexposure.com

www.anomalousrecords.com

www.cadencebuilding.com/cadence/musicsaleshp.html
(and take a look at the site for their in-house label CIMP, which releases progressive and avant-garde jazz that also happen to be 'audiophile' grade recordings)
www.cadencebuilding.com/cadence/cimpcat.html

For indie-rock and related recordings, these two sites are pretty good bets

www.parasol.com

www.midheaven.com

A couple of record stores that also deal with mail order distribution that would probably cover something from the whole gamut of what's offered above would be...

www.othermusic.com

www.aquariusrecords.org
here are a few sites that are cool:
http://cuneiformrecords.com
http://www.forcedexposure.com

http://www.cadencebuilding.com

Here are two more that no one will use ;).
