Jon Anderson/Animation [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $20.99

Jon Anderson/Animation [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $20.99

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the 1982 solo album by Jon Anderson, Animation. The album was recorded throughout 1981 during Jon's first hiatus from Yes, with whom he had become an internationally known vocalist and songwriter and followed on from his acclaimed albums Olias of Sunhillow and Song of Seven. Working with co-producer Neil Kernon and a host of talented musicians such as David Scancious, Clem Clempson, Simon Phillips, Stefano Cerri, Chris Rainbow, Jack Bruce and Dave Lawson, Anderson created an album that absorbed the latest electronic instrument technology whilst retaining an ambitious and progressive edge. Animation was a UK top fifty hit upon it's release by Polydor Records in June 1982 and spawned two UK singles, of which the non-album track 'Spider' acted, strangely, as a B-side to both releases. Animation has since become a favourite album among aficionados of Jon Anderson's work. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original Polydor Records master tapes and is expanded to include the single B-side track 'Spider' and also a demo from the early 1980s of the lengthy piece 'The Spell.' This reissue restores the original album artwork in a digipack and the booklet features a new essay with an exclusive interview with Jon Anderson.

Jon Anderson/Olias of Sunhillow [Deluxe Edition] ....import CD + DVD Price $23.99

Jon Anderson/Olias of Sunhillow [Deluxe Edition] ....import CD + DVD Price $23.99

A 2021 remastered and expanded CD/DVD edition of the legendary 1976 solo album by Jon Anderson.  The DVD features 96khz/24bit stereo master of the original mix plus a 5.1 'up-mix.'  Includes a booklet featuring a comprehensive interview with Anderson about the making of his extraordinary and atmospheric album.  Released in July 1976, Olias was a conceptual work recounting the story of an alien race on a journey to find a new world following volcanic destruction on their home planet. All music on the album was written and performed by Jon Anderson and the recording took place at Anderson's Buckinghamshire home studio whilst Yes were on hiatus following the tour to promote the album Relayer. Initially recorded on an 8-track tape machine, the arrangements were then re-recorded on to a 24-track tape machine. The album saw Jon perform the music entirely alone, teaching himself to play keyboards and acknowledging the influence of such legendary musicians as Rick Wakeman, Patrick Moraz and Vangelis on his work.

Pierre Moerlen's Gong/Downwind ....import CD $21.99

Eagerly awaited re-press - digitally remastered edition of this acclaimed album by Pierre Moerlen's Gong. By the late 1970s, percussionist Pierre Moerlen had taken over the leadership of Gong and had steered the band away from psychedelic space rock and took the band into a jazz rock direction, one in which the band excelled. After recording several albums with Virgin, with the band now featured Hansford Rowe on bass, Ross Record on guitar, Benoit Moerlen on vibes and Francois Causse on percussion. Moerlen signed with Arista Records in 1978 and recorded this excellent album partially in Mike Oldfield's studio.

This edition has been remastered from the original analogue master tapes and fully restores the original album artwork.

Bill Bruford's Earthworks/Earthworks ....import CD $20.99

Bill Bruford's Earthworks/Earthworks ....import CD $20.99

Already well-known in progressive rock, drummer Bill Bruford formed Earthworks in 1986, as a deliberate return to his roots in jazz. He seconded the brilliant keyboardist and tenor horn player Django Bates and saxophonist Iain Ballamy, frontrunners with the anarchic big band Loose Tubes, as his partners. Bill encouraged the use of rock technology with jazz sensibility - heard to good effect here on the album's two live bonus tracks 'A Stone's Throw' and 'All Heaven Broke Loose.'  This album has been out of print for some time. This re-release is on Bruford's own Summerfold Records and was overseen personally by him.

Annette Peacock/X-Dreams ....CD $17.99

Annette Peacock/X-Dreams ....CD $17.99

Arriving in 1978, X-Dreams is an infatuating and resolutely feminine free-form exploration of the politics and dynamics of sex. Assembling a crew of 22 musicians (including Mick Ronson on guitar and Bill Bruford on drums), Peacock delivers impassioned vocal performances alongside an improvisational jazz-rock fusion masterpiece of musicianship, almost all of which was recorded in one take.

Annette Peacock/The Perfect Release ....CD $15.99

Annette Peacock/The Perfect Release ....CD $15.99

Annette Peacock is an American composer, musician, songwriter, producer, arranger. She is a pioneer in electronic music who combined her voice with one of the first Moog synthesizers in the late 1960s. The Perfect Release was her third solo release. It came out in 1979, the year after her unforgettable work with Bill Bruford on his solo debut, Feels Good to Me.  This prophetic stew of spoken word, jazz, and funk from Annette Peacock was wildly ahead of its time and is still salient today. Her unflinching examinations of capitalism, sex, religion, et al. are underscored by lengthy, gorgeous grooves. Peacock wields her voice with wild abandon, at times delivering a melody like a Beat poet while other times wailing out of her throat like a saxophone, hitting blue notes as she pleases. Where most musicians riff, she creates sonic space. Perhaps too esoteric to garner commercial praise at the time, with this reissue we're proud to encourage the discovery and praise that The Perfect Release deserves.

Marianne Faithfull with Warren Ellis/She Walks in Beauty ....CD $16.99

Marianne Faithfull with Warren Ellis/She Walks in Beauty ....CD $16.99

A unique new album of poetry and music featuring Marianne Faithfull, set to the music of Warren Ellis, and featuring Nick Cave, Brian Eno and Vincent Segal.  Marianne Faithfull releases one of the most distinctive albums of her extraordinary life and career with composer and multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis. It was recorded just before and during the first Covid-19 lockdown - during which the singer herself became infected and almost died. Together with musical friends and family, She Walks in Beauty fulfills Faithfull's long-held ambition to record an album of poetry with music.  Delving deep into her past, it's a record that draws on her passion for the English Romantic poets, a passion she fostered at St Joseph's Convent School before leaving for London at the age of 16. There she entered the world of As Tears Go By, of Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones, setting her on a left-hand path to pop stardom. Sixties iconography and outrage followed, as did her subsequent battles with addiction before her 1979 return to powerful female and artistic autonomy with Broken English.

Tangerine Dream/Official Bootleg Series Vol. 2 ....import 4 CD Set $52.99

Tangerine Dream/Official Bootleg Series Vol. 2 ....import 4 CD Set $52.99

2016 four CD live archive re-release. Esoteric Recordings' Reactive label is proud to announce the release of the second volume of an official bootleg series by the legendary Tangerine Dream. This set includes a 1978 Paris concert as well as a 1980 show taped in East Berlin. Formed in Berlin in September 1967 by Edgar Froese, Tangerine Dream is simply one of the most important groups to have emerged on the German music scene of the late 1960s/early 1970s. Always guided by the genius of Edgar Froese, Tangerine Dream developed a sound based on the use of synthesizers and keyboards. In Britain, John Peel soon began to promote the band on his influential radio show which ultimately led to Tangerine Dream becoming one of the first acts to sign to Richard Branson's newly established Virgin label in 1973. Tangerine Dream's music would influence a whole host of musicians who followed in their wake, such as Julian Cope.

The Lyrics of Syd Barrett ....Hardcover Book $19.99

The Lyrics of Syd Barrett ....Hardcover Book $19.99

Despite just a three-year tenure with the band, co-founder Syd Barrett's influence on Pink Floyd was profound and long-lasting. If his guitar gave the early Pink Floyd a distinctive hallucinatory sound, his often obscure and surreal lyrics were perhaps even more intoxicating.  The complete lyrics of Syd Barrett - 52 songs written for Pink Floyd and during his subsequent solo career - are presented together for the first time, along with rare photos and artwork, to form this beautifully illustrated book.   Compiled in collaboration with the Syd Barrett estate, and featuring a foreword from former Pink Floyd manager Peter Jenner and a comprehensive introduction by biographer Rob Chapman, The Lyrics of Syd Barrett delves deep into one of rock'n'roll's most imaginative and searing minds.

The Flock/Truth - The Columbia Recordings 1969-1970 [Remastered] ....import 2 CD Set $22.99

Esoteric re-press of 2017 release. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the re-release of a new two CD anthology celebrating the fine American jazz rock band The Flock. Hailing from Chicago, The Flock was one of the most original groups to emerge on the late 1960s buoyant music scene. Along with their fellow Chicagoans Blood Sweat & Tears and Chicago, The Flock were highly original in their musical approach, successfully fusing jazz, rock, blues and even classical influences. The band recorded three singles in 1966 and 1967 before changing musical direction and recruiting virtuoso electric violinist Jerry Goodman to their ranks. With a line-up of Fred Glickstein (guitar, lead vocals), Jerry Goodman (violin), Jerry Smith (bass), Ron Karpman (drums), Rick Canoff (saxophone), Tom Webb (saxophone) and Frank Posa (trumpet), The Flock came to the attention of manager Aaron Russo, owner of Chicago's famous Kinetic Playground venue. Russo secured the band a contract with Columbia Records for whom The Flock recorded two excellent albums for the label, "The Flock" (1969) and "Dinosaur Swamps" (1970).

Kayak/Out of this World ....CD $17.99

Kayak/Out of this World ....CD $17.99

Titled Out of this World, the upcoming album from the iconic Dutch progressive rock band is the follow-up to 2018's Seventeen and is scheduled to be released in via InsideOut Music. The upcoming album will be the band's eighteenth full-length effort. Speaking about the upcoming album, founding member Ton Scherpenzeel says, "Many people seem to consider the past year as a lost year, due to Covid-19. I don't. I am not saying it was great, but it made me realize, once more, how fragile we all are. How connected everything and everyone is, with actions and consequences that touch us all. And that, on a smaller scale, and much closer to home, the new Kayak album could only have turned out the way it did. More than ever, it is clear that working with each other on this level can never be taken for granted. It requires dedication, and respect for each other's talents and input. That's the foundation upon which Kayak in 2021 is built."

Colosseum/Those Who Are About to Die Salute You [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $21.99

Colosseum/Those Who Are About to Die Salute You [Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....import CD $21.99

A 2017 re-mastered and expanded edition of Colosseum's astonishing debut from 1968.   The album features the original line-up of Jon Hiseman, Dave Greenslade, Dick Heckstall-Smith, James Litherland and Tony Reeves.  Colosseum came together in 1968, the brainchild of virtuoso drummer Jon Hiseman and saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith (who had played together in the Graham Bond Organisation and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers). Teaming with bass guitarist Tony Reeves and keyboard player Dave Greenslade, the line-up of the band was completed with the recruitment of guitarist and vocalist James Litherland. Recorded in the winter of 1968, Those Who Are About to Die Salute You was a stunning debut album and was one of the first successful attempts to fuse jazz, blues and rock. Featuring such classic tracks as 'Walking in the Park,' 'Beware the Ides of March,' 'Those About to Die' and 'The Road She Walked Before,' Those Who Are About to Die Salute You reached #15 on the UK album chart and remains a seminal album in the development of what would be known as progressive rock. This Esoteric Recordings release is newly remastered and includes three bonus tracks recorded at Pye studios in London in November 1968. The release fully restores the original album artwork and features an illustrated booklet with new essay.

Rare Bird/Beautiful Scarlet: Recordings 1969-1975 ....import 6 CD Set $59.99

Rare Bird/Beautiful Scarlet: Recordings 1969-1975 ....import 6 CD Set $59.99

Digitally remastered six CD set featuring all of the albums and singles released by legendary band Rare Bird on both the Charisma and Polydor labels between 1969 and 1975. Formed in 1969 with a line up featuring Graham Field (organ), Dave Kaffinetti (keyboards), Steve Gould (vocals, bass) and Mark Ashton (drums), Rare Bird had the distinction of being the first act to be released on Tony Stratton Smith's gloriously eclectic label Charisma records (also the home of Genesis, The Nice and Van Der Graaf Generator to name but a few) and for their excellent self-titled debut album released in late 1969 and their 1970 international hit single Sympathy. Despite selling a million copies worldwide, neither their debut album or the excellent follow up As Your Mind Flies By (issued in 1970) enjoyed the sales of their debut single. This lack of commercial success saw the departure of Graham Field and Mark Ashton, leaving Gould and Kaffinetti to form a new line-up in 1971 adding Andy "Ced" Curtis (lead guitar), Fred Kelly (drums) and Paul Karas (bass, vocals) to the band, with Steve Gould undertaking the role of second guitarist in addition to that of vocalist. Signing to Polydor Records in late 1971, Rare Bird recorded the excellent album Epic Forest the following year. The album was lavishly packaged with early copies featuring a poster and a bonus 7-inch EP with three additional tracks. In 1973 the band changed line-ups once more with departure of Paul Karas. He was replaced by Nic Potter (previously with Van Der Graaf Generator) and the band recorded the fine album Somebody's Watching the same year. The album featured guest John Wetton on bass for the track "Dollars." Despite the excellence of the band's work, commercial success still eluded them. In 1974 Andy Rae replaced Nic Potter on bass and Rare Bird recorded their final album, Born Again. The release of the album led to touring activity, including a memorable spot opening for label mates Barclay James Harvest at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in June 1974. However, the following year Rare Bird disbanded. This new anthology features newly re-mastered versions of all of Rare Bird's albums and singles, with Epic Forest being re-mastered from recently discovered first generation master tapes for the first time. The set also features an additional previously unreleased CD of the band's entire live set recorded by Polydor Records at the Theatre Royal, London in June 1974. Also included is an illustrated booklet featuring exclusive interviews with Steve Gould and Mark Ashton and a facsimile of the rare poster given with initial copies of Epic Forest.

Driven by Steve Milliner's keyboard playing ability, Aardvark's only album was released in 1970 on Decca's short lived progressive imprint Deram Nova. One of the best albums released on Nova, "Aardvark" features such outstanding pieces as the evocative 'Once Upon a Hill,' 'Many Things to Do' and the powerful album closing track; 'Put that in Your Pipe and Smoke It.' This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and features a booklet with fully restored artwork and new essay.

Oberon/A Midsummer's Night Dream [Deluxe Edition] ....import 2 CD Set $24.99

Recorded by students at the start of their summer holidays, Oberon's self-financed, 99-copies-only 1971 album "A Midsummer's Night Dream" is one of the rarest, most expensive artefacts to emerge from the primordial soup of the early seventies British underground scene. More importantly, it also boasts a reputation as one of the most vital, with one commentator suggesting that "at least one of the few copies pressed should be preserved in the British Museum." Having featured tracks from the album on our heavily-praised three CD British underground folk collections Dust on the Nettles and Sumer Is Icumen In, the Grapefruit label now celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the making of "A Midsummer's Night Dream" by issuing the album in its entirety. With a second disc comprising a live show recorded roughly three months before the album, this remastered two CD digipak edition - featuring rare photos and a new essay on the band - is the definitive release of a fascinating dropped stitch in the fabric of the early seventies underground folk cosmology.

The Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive Music was a counterculture era music festival held at the Royal Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, England on 27-29 June 1970. Bands such as Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin performed, and the festival was widely bootlegged. An 'alternative festival' was staged in an adjoining field where the Pink Fairies and Hawkwind played on the back of a flatbed truck. Michael Eavis was attendant at the festival and was inspired to hold later that year the first event of what would become the Glastonbury festival of contemporary performing arts.

Porcupine Tree/Fear of a Blank Planet ....import CD $14.99

Fear of a Blank Planet, originally released in 2007, is the ninth studio album by British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree and their best selling before 2009's The Incident. Steven Wilson has mentioned that the album's title is a direct reference to the 1990 Public Enemy album Fear of a Black Planet; while the former tackled race issues, the latter is about the fear of losing the current generation of youth to various common threats to their mental and social wellbeing, including broken homes, excessive "screen time," and narcotic overuse (prescribed and otherwise) to the point of mental and spiritual "blankness." Special guests include King Crimson's Robert Fripp and Rush's Alex Lifeson. Reissued by Snapper Classics UK.

Completed during lockdown conditions imposed by the outbreak of the COVID 19 virus, the EP title track is a poignant and emotive song in the finest musical tradition of Procol Harum. War is Not Healthy is also a fine observation of war and it's impact on humanity. With the lyrical subject matter of both songs being particularly apt for the times we live in, this new music from Procol Harum is timely.

Grateful Dead/Road Trips Vol.2 No.3 - Wall of Sound ....2 CD Set $41.99

Grateful Dead/Road Trips Vol.2 No.3 - Wall of Sound ....2 CD Set $41.99

Dead chronicler Dennis McNally's liner notes to this Road Trip are a must-read, succinctly expounding upon how Bear's vision of creating a sound system free of distortion morphed into a 641-speaker monster (there's a great picture of it inside the booklet) that required three trucks to transport and five hours to set up, almost bankrupting the band and causing them to retire from the road for almost two years. But it was truly a singular sonic achievement, one that, as McNally puts it, 'allowed the band to go places they'd only dreamed of.' The two shows excerpted on this two CD set, 6/16/74 at the State Fairgrounds in Des Moines and 6/18/74 at Freedom Hall in Louisville, beautifully illustrate the point: with a PA this loud, the band could play softer, freeing them to mesh ever more subtly and intricately. The Des Moines 'Eyes of the World' is simply definitive, and the Louisville medley of 'Weather Report Suite'/'Jam'/'The Other One'/'It's a Sin Jam'/'Stella Blue' is one-of-a-kind. This Trip's a treasure'first time ever available at regular music retail!

Steve Roach/As It Is ....CD $15.99

Steve Roach/As It Is ....CD $15.99

As a sonic continuation and response to last year's optimistic Tomorrow, As It Is is a revelatory experience of mystical, captivating electronic music. It travels the soul's pathway of renewal following the dramatic year we've just emerged from. Filled with texture and subtle nuance, this is a spacious album of organic analog electronic music with a breath and heartbeat - a simmering, churning, moving appointment with reality. Within secluded deeply personal spaces, suspended soundworlds place the listener in the center of life's mystery, awe, excitement, pathos, sadness, longing, and power. As It Is takes a bold step deeper into the time - and space - altering realms Steve has pioneered over all these many decades.

The Touch/Tomorrow Never Comes ....CD $16.99

The Touch/Tomorrow Never Comes ....CD $16.99

For fans of Moody Blues, Deep Purple, Drive She Said and Melodic Rock! Touch is an American band from New York City formed in 1978 with Mark Mangold (keyboards and vocals), Glenn Kithcart (drums), Craig Brooks (guitars and vocals) and Doug Howard (bass and vocals). Touch's first album was released on Atco Records and their first singles, "Don't You Know What Love Is" and "When The Spirit Moves You" charted on the Billboard Hot 100. "Don't You Know What Love Is" was played heavily on AOR stations in the USA at the end of the 1970s and early '80s, and also did well on the Melody Maker chart in Great Britain. Touch was the first band to play at the inaugural Monsters of Rock Festival at Castle Donington in 1980 along with Rainbow, Scorpions and Judas Priest. A live version of "Don't You Know What Love Is" appeared on the compilation LP Monsters of Rock, documenting the performances at the festival. Known for their memorable and diverse songs, stellar musicianship, lush vocal harmonies and dynamic stage performance, Touch is invariably on the list of TOP AOR Bands and their album is considered by many to be among the best AOR Melodic Rock albums of all time. The original band have now reformed after almost 40 years to create the new album "Tomorrow Never Comes," which is already being hailed as their best work to date.

Ian Carr/Belladonna ....CD $13.99

Ian Carr/Belladonna ....CD $13.99

Official half-speed mastered re-issue of British trumpeter and bandleader Ian Carr's iconic jazz-fusion-rock hybrid 'Belladonna' from 1972. Originally released on the Vertigo label, complete with collectable 'swirl' record centre design, this sought-after jazz-rock-fusion rarity features some of the cream of the UK jazz musicians of the '70s. Comprised from groups such as Nucleus, Brian Auger's band, Soft Machine, Stan Tracy group, the players included Brian Smith (tenor and soprano saxophones, alto and bamboo flutes), legendary guitarist Allan Holdsworth, Dave MacRae (Fender electric piano), and bassist Roy Babbington, to name but a few. Seen as a benchmark point in Ian Carr's career, 'Belladonna' is awash with atmospheric excursions and ethereal qualities, as well as a darker fusion aesthetic and prog-rock sensibility from Holdsworth's exceptional guitar playing. The moody, yet funky, vibe of the album has echoes of Miles Davis' electronic era a la 'In a Silent Way.' The album is best enjoyed played in it's entirety. There are ebbs and flows with certain tracks shining along the way. Standouts include the beautiful down-tempo track 'Summer Rain,' which has a soundtrack / library style brilliance and emotional electric piano soloing. Though recorded in the '70s, the track has a timeless sound, a melancholic funk so often used in hip-hop and beat tape productions to this day. 'Mayday's Shaft-like long extended intro builds the drama until the percussive release when the drums drop at over three minutes in. To give a record of such quality the treatment it deserves, we have once again been lucky to enlist the service of mastering and lacquer cutting engineering don Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, to cut a brand-new half-speed master and let the music speak for itself.

Jean-Michel Jarre/Amazonia ....import CD $24.99

Jean-Michel Jarre/Amazonia ....import CD $24.99

Jean-Michel Jarre has composed and recorded a 52 minute musical score for 'Amazonia,' a new project by award winning photographer and filmmaker Sebastiao Salgado, for the Philharmonic Paris. The exhibition launches on April 7th and will later travel to South America, Roma and London.  'Amazonia' is an immersive exhibition focussing on the Brazilian Amazon, featuring more than 200 photographs and other media by Salgado. He travelled the region for six years, capturing the forest, the rivers, the mountains and the people who live there, and most of the work will be seen publicly for the first time. At the heart of the exhibit is an invitation to see, hear and think about the future of biodiversity and the place of humans in the living world.  JMJs accompanying sound-creation is a symphonic world which will engulf visitors to the exhibit in the sounds of the forest. Using a blend of electronic and orchestral instruments with other real-life natural sounds, the score has also been recorded in binaural audio, for a truly immersive experience.  "I wanted to avoid the ethnomusicological approach, or creating background music. So I conceived a sort of toolbox containing musical elements - orchestral and electronic - intended to recreate or evoke the timbre of natural sounds, to which I added sounds from the environment, and finally ethnic sources (voices, songs, and instruments) from the sound archives of the Ethnography Museum of Geneva (MEG). I approached the Amazon with respect, in a poetic and impressionistic way. I chose the vocal and sound elements in their evocative dimension, rather than trying to be faithful to a particular ethnic group. It seemed interesting to me to fantasize the forest. It carries with it a powerful imagination; for both Westerners and Amerindians. This music also evokes a form of nomadism, as if sounds appear and disappear during a migration. It was necessary to go back to the principles of orchestration of the sounds of nature, to work from sounds which follow one another randomly, but which can compose a harmony or a dissonance. And as in any symphony, the work has moments of clarity or tension."   The CD & VINYL come with an access code to download the Binaural Sound and 5.1. Sound.

Includes a never released Halsall composition "I'm Baroque" about their foreshortened tour of Australia supporting Joe Cocker. The previously unreleased footage includes the 'Pop Deux' broadcast from French TV and the full session for German TV's 'Beat Club' with blistering performances of "San Antone" and "The Man" - a song featured in the film Observe and Report. For a band whose legacy only continues to grow, historical recordings such as these are valuable treasures that surpasses any sonic limitations.

Brian Bennett/Voyage [Expanded Edition] ....import 2 CD Set $36.99

Brian Bennett/Voyage [Expanded Edition] ....import 2 CD Set $36.99

Ever since joining The Shadows in 1961, London-born drummer and percussionist Brian Bennett has been an institution on the UK's music scene. After leaving The Shads, he embarked on a fascinating solo career carving a unique role as a arranger, conductor and record producer, composer for film and TV. In 1978, inspired by the space age disco records emanating from the continent, Brian recorded what he described as "A Journey into Discoid Funk."  Housed in a striking, colourful sleeve depicting - appropriately enough - a spaceship, Voyage was a departure for Bennett, serving up infectious, cosmic disco/jazz/funk with a nod towards his earlier, funky library work. This album was created by a trio with Bennett on drums, Alan Jones on bass and Francis Monkman of Curved Air and Sky on keyboards with some of his spaciest synthwork to date! Released with Brian's blessing and overseen by his musician/composer son Warren, this two CD edition of Voyage boasts the addition of previously unissued working mixes of the album, plus the rare 7" edits from the single 'Pendulum Force.'

Steve Cropper/Fire It Up ....CD $16.99

Steve Cropper/Fire It Up ....CD $16.99

The term "Guitar Hero" is bandied about loosely these days. Seems like all you have to do is look good holding the thing and you qualify. But if you ask the actual guitar heroes - like Brian May, Jeff Beck, and Eric Clapton - who THEIR guitar heroes are, Steve Cropper is definitely on the shortlist. If all he had done were the records with Otis Redding that would be enough, but shortly thereafter he was leaving his fingerprints on records by Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, Johnny Taylor, Albert King, and virtually anybody worthy who came within earshot of Memphis. And to top it all off, how can we forget Booker T and the MGs and The Blues Brothers! He was a guitarist's guitarist, and a songwriter's songwriter. Fire It Up is Steve Cropper's first album of new Soul/R&B material in 10 years. The album was produced by Steve and Jon Tiven, and will be released worldwide via Mascot Label Group/Provogue.

Pretty Things/Live at the BBC ....import 6 CD Box Set $85.99

This is the one to have! Together for the first time on one 6-CD collection. One of the all-time great British '60s bands - The Pretty Things Live at he BBC! Boxed set comprised of 3 digisleeved packages each containing 2 CDs. Over seven hours of audio - restored and remastered, 50-page booklet with liner notes by Richard Morton Jack featuring archive memorabilia and photos. Drawn from Saturday Club, Beat Room, Top Gear and Sounds of the '70s, plus more recently the Mark Lamarr and Marc Riley shows. BBC broadcast material from 1964-2018 curated by Colin Harper. Features a recent interview by Chris Welch with founder member and guitarist Dick Taylor. In the golden age of the British R&B revival, few groups created as much excitement and controversy as The Pretty Things. They came up alongside the Rolling Stones in the early 1960s, but were deemed by critics and fans as wilder and bluesier than even Mick Jagger and company. When long-haired Phil May sang and shook his maracas with manic intensity, audiences and record buyers knew they were in for a wild ride. But The Pretty Things took their music seriously and developed into one of the more innovative rock bands of the '70s, much admired by groups and artists from Led Zeppelin to David Bowie. As well as recording hit singles and albums, the Pretties were also heard live in action on BBC radio shows that captured their dynamic performances with remarkable clarity and presence. We are fortunate that this audio heritage has been carefully preserved and has now been digitally restored for future generations to enjoy. Repertoire is proud to present this comprehensive 6 CD collection that provides over seven hours of non-stop R&B, original songs and new concepts.

Juicy Lucy/Juicy Lucy + Lie Back & Enjoy It + Get a Whiff a This plus bonus tracks ....import 2 CD Set $20.99

Blues rockers Juicy Lucy were formed after the demise of The Misunderstood by Glenn Ross Campbell with Chris Mercer, ex-John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. They recruited Keith Ellis (Koobas), Neil Hubbard (The Grease Band), Ray Owen and Pete Dobson. In March 1970, 'Who Do You Love' entered the UK Top 10 singles chart (the first single released on the Vertigo label), shortly followed by the 'Juicy Lucy' album, which made the Top 50 albums chart. 'Lie Back and Enjoy It' came out later in the year (again on Vertigo), this time with ex-Zoot Money vocalist and bassist Paul Williams and with Micky Moody on guitar. 'Get a Whiff' was released by Bronze Records in 1971, but by 1972, with an ever-changing personnel, the group disbanded. Digitally remastered and slipcased, and with new notes.

Big Big Train/Underfall Yard ....import 2 CD Set $29.99

Big Big Train are delighted to announce the re-issue of their breakthrough 2009 album The Underfall Yard. The new release will be available as 2 CD set. Released in December 2009, The Underfall Yard was the first Big Big Train album with vocalist David Longdon and drummer Nick D'Virgilio as full band members, the first to feature Dave Desmond's brass band and the first to include the guitar playing of Dave Gregory. Alongside the remix of the original recordings, a second companion CD features 48 minutes of material, including a new 2020 studio recording of the title track, preceded by a previously unreleased brass prelude. Also included is the Songs from the Shoreline suite, which was planned for the album's original release in 2009. For this re-issue, in 2020 the band completely re-recorded Victorian Brickwork, which segues into Fat Billy Shouts Mine (which has to date only been available on the Far Skies, Deep Time EP). The final track on the second disc is Brew and Burgh, a newly composed song written by BBT founder and bassist Greg Spawton specifically as a companion piece for this re-issue of the album. In addition, original album artist Jim Trainer has painted some new images for an expanded booklet.

Octane Twisted features Porcupine Tree's The Incident album performed in its entirety in Chicago. The second disc contains highlights from the band's landmark show at the Royal Albert Hall. "Octane Twisted really captures the atmosphere and energy of a Porcupine Tree live concert experience. Recorded at a time when the band had the set well 'played in,' you can hear the interaction between the band members as well as the audience as they navigate their way through The Incident and many other older songs too." - Gavin Harrison

Pineapple Thief/Soord Sessions Volumes 1 - 4 ....import 4 CD + Book Box Set $79.99

A deluxe 4 CD set containing the complete sessions from Bruce Soord's acoustic live performances streamed during the UK lockdown. Presented in a 48-page hardback book, which features an extended forward and notes on each session by Bruce plus previously unseen photos from the attic studio and images from the live streams along with technical and personal information on the equipment used. Bruce had never streamed a live show before and most of the songs had never been performed solo before (some had never been performed at all). "I played my first show, diving headfirst into the unknown and I soon learned how many people had enjoyed it and that resulted in another three sessions over the following weeks, playing songs from the 20 years I had been writing with The Pineapple Thief and more recently my solo work. " Over the last half-decade, The Pineapple Thief, led by Bruce Soord and bolstered by the involvement of master drummer Gavin Harrison, has rapidly ascended to the upper echelons of Europe's alternative rock scene. September 2020 saw the release of the band's universally acclaimed 'Versions of the Truth.' The album was due to be followed, almost immediately, by an extensive tour, which due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation was postponed. Bruce Soord, not wanting to disappoint fans, announced a solo acoustic live streamed performance of songs taken from The Pineapple Thief's extensive catalogue. Due to the success of the initial performance, one session turned into four across the summer. Bruce Soord explains, "Back in the spring of 2020 I decided to perform a live acoustic show from my attic studio. I figured I could set up something with a bit more production than just a face peering down a mobile phone. I created a little haven of guitars, pedals, loopers, microphones and webcams and mixed them all together ready to send out to the world. " This four CD set also features three bonus tracks 'A Loneliness,' 'Barely Breathing' alongside an additional performance of 'White Mist' taken from a 'best of 'session that streamed in December.

RPWL/God Has Failed - Live & Personal ....CD $14.99

November 2020 was supposed to bring a large-scale, multi-week anniversary tour to mark the 20th year since the release of their debut album "God Has Failed," but of course things turned out differently. So what do you do when you have a perfectly rehearsed band, but the opportunity to perform is pulled out from under your feet? Right, you film a live studio session of the entire album. Basically, it can be cautiously said that RPWL live out the concept of their 2012 album "Beyond Man and Time." In a way, all artists are currently sitting in Plato's cave, only kind of seeing a reflection of the real world, whatever that may and will look like. "God Has Failed" represents the band's early days before they began to give themselves overarching concepts for their releases every now and then, starting in 2005. No expense was spared on the package. Furthermore, this special 'concert' will be released as a Blu-ray and DVD. The original line-up takes to memory lane and revels sympathetically in the reminiscences that this production naturally brings.

Stand-out tracks include 'Anthony,' dedicated to Wilson. Guest musicians include viola player John Metcalfe, vocalist Ruth-Ann Boyle (later to form hitmakers Olive with Tim Kellett), programmer Martin Jackson (Magazine, Swing Out Sister) and bassist Peter Hook, then on furlough from New Order post-Republic.

Ollie Halsall/Lovers Leaping ....CD $11.99

Ollie Halsall/Lovers Leaping ....CD $11.99

Welcome remaster and repackage of British guitarist Ollie Halsall's collection of one man band demos recorded in 1979. It's important to note this is not a 'guitar album' but it is more about Ollie the singer/songwriter, with results that are deeply revealing. These are 3-minute pop masterpieces which owe far more to Lennon & McCartney than to John Cale or Kevin Ayers and the rest of Ollie's more indulgent associations. The original demos fall in such a perfect sequence it is hard to imagine them not being intended as a complete album, which is how they remain presented here. Completing the package is Ollie's self-portrait on the cover. Limited pressing. 8 page booklet with essay by Barry Monks and rare, unseen photographs.

Osibisa/New Dawn ....import CD $21.99

Osibisa were founded in London in 1969 and their early album artwork was designed by Roger Dean. Osibisa has charmed a fanbase of world music lovers with their brilliant music. Overall, Osibisa has released a total of 17 studio albums, and a magnificent collection of live sets that includes Black Magic Night (1977). This year Osibisa returns with a brand new studio work, New Dawn. This version of Osibisa isn't emasculated as it has the lineup of original members, Teddy Osei, and Robert Bailey, shored up with the long-time member, Gregg Kofi Brown, and some great musicians to build the rest of Osibisa. Says Osei of the 14 new songs, "New Dawn is a diverse, dynamic collection of tracks, all underpinned by the original Osibisa Afrobeat vibe that I brought to the UK over half a century ago. I couldn't be prouder to present this latest evolution of Osibisa."

Chester Thompson/Powerhouse ....CD $15.99

Chester Thompson/Powerhouse ....CD $15.99

With long-standing stints in Tower of Power and Santana, Chester Thompson just might be the most decorated and distinguished keyboardist in all of rock and R&B, let alone of the Bay Area musical scene. It's little wonder that this 1971 album, then, is one of the rarest and most coveted albums on the highly collectible Black Jazz Records label.   It's Thompson's debut record, cut a couple of years before he joined Tower of Power, with a smokin' band featuring fellow Black Jazz recording artist Rudolph Johnson on sax along with ace drummer Raymond Pounds (Pharoah Sanders, Stevie Wonder, Pointer Sisters) and trombonist Al Hall (Johnny Hammond, Freddie Hubbard, Eddie Harris). And, yes, Powerhouse comes by its title honestly.  It's jazz, all right, but injected with a jolt of electricity courtesy of Thompson's Hammond B-3, and with just four tunes spread out over two sides, it's pretty much a nonstop groove. Newly remastered, and with liner notes featuring quotes from fellow Tower of Power member Dave Garibaldi and Bay Area keyboardist Todd Cochran, a.k.a. Bayet, that testify as to Chester Thompson's greatness, this is another long-lost triumph from the Black Jazz label.

Steve Roach/Quiet Music [35th Anniversary Remastered Collection] ....3 CD Set $23.99

Steve Roach/Quiet Music [35th Anniversary Remastered Collection] ....3 CD Set $23.99

The meditative, ambient minimalism of Steve Roach's classic 1983-86 Quiet Music series is re-released in it's entirety with a meticulously remastered 35th anniversary 3CD edition. The luscious quality and subtle tonal beauty reveal the essence-of-tone of the multi-track master. Originally published on cassette and later in a truncated 2CD edition, Projekt now presents this landmark album as Roach envisioned it.  Created in respect for silence, Quiet Music originates from the same era as Roach's classic 1984 release Structures from Silence. This series finds the gentle electronics of synthesizers mixing with flute, electric piano and natural sounds flowing like breath, enveloping the listener in a sustained, delicate, translucent atmosphere. Harold Budd, Los Angeles, 1986: "I think Steve Roach's Quiet Music is his best album. It's not that it's simply pretty (which it is), but there's an odd edge lurking in the background that moves it miles away from 'New Age' torpor. This is a lovely album from a composer working at the top of his skills." Today, these pieces stand as a cornerstone in body-work, yoga, and healing therapies. The soothing, introspective nature of Quiet Music flows at a time-suspending pace, gently evolving and using space to expand and explore the essence of silence. The space between the notes and the breathing quality brings the listener to a deeper awareness of the present moment. A timeless masterpiece.

Bob Drake/Planets & Animals ....CD $16.99

Bob Drake/Planets & Animals ....CD $16.99

A pandemic is just an opportunity for some people to spend even more time in the studio. Bob has his public, amounting to a minor cult, and his new CD - exquisitely recorded (in a previous life he was an L.A. studio engineer for the great and the good) is a compact suite of short, dense, twisty, jaw-dropping - and highly unusual - songs; a bit of a whirlwind for the uninitiated, but still surprisingly accessible. It's his 10th release for ReR, each exploring some new aspect of songwriting, arrangement or production. This time he's added a small menagerie of newly invented instruments, to augment his already extensive acoustic and electronic instrumentarium - and the band of Bob that plays them has seldom been larger or tighter. Beautifully packaged with impressive fold-out artwork by the incomparable Joe Mruk. Bob Drake has played a lot of instruments with - and has engineered - all manner of bands, from the early 1970s. From 1978-1989 he played an important role in Denver's underground music scene, and was a founding member of both Thinking Plague and Hail. In the early 1990s, when he was living in Los Angeles, he wound up engineering sessions with just about everybody from Ice Cube to Shirley MacLaine and it was there that he met David Kerman and became part of 5UU's. It was also around this time that he began to write and record his own solo albums. Since 1994 he has lived in his home studio in Southern France, where he has played on and recorded and/or mixed hundreds of albums by artists from around the world. He is still a regular member of the Peter Blegvad Quintet, The Science Group and Vril. And, wearing a different hat, he is also well known for his definitive re-masterings of classic albums by Art Bears, Henry Cow, ZNR, Cassiber and others.

Dwiki Dharmawan/Hari Ketiga ....2 CD Set $24.99

Dwiki Dharmawan/Hari Ketiga ....2 CD Set $24.99

The foundation of this massive work is a series of improvisations at La Casa Murada on May 17, 2017 involving Dharmawan (piano, electric piano, synthesizer, harmonium), Boris Salvoldelli (vocals and effects), Markus Reuter (Touch Guitar and electronics), and Asaf Sirkis (drums). These improvisations, some of which were quite lengthy, were then edited into backing tracks (in a manner somewhat like what Teo Macero used on Bitches Brew and other Miles Davis albums) by Pavkovic, and then Salvoldelli added more layers of vocals in collaboration with writer Alessandro Ducoli, who helped develop a cosmic storyline involving the destiny of the planet Earth and all its inhabitants. Dharmawan contributed some field recordings from Indonesia for another layer of sound. The result is a double CD set two and a half hours in length full of music that has been astonishing listeners since parts of it started sneaking out a couple of months ago. This is a stunning example of what can happen when musicians are encouraged to reach beyond their comfort zones, to do things they might never have tried in more structured situations.

Magnet Animals/Fake Dudes ....CD $15.99

Magnet Animals/Fake Dudes ....CD $15.99

If ever a moment in history called for the caustic, corrosive rantings of guitarist-composer-poet Todd Clouser and the abstract grooves of his combustible beat-skronk band Magnet Animals, it's this one. With our collective headspaces dizzied by a nearly yearlong pandemic induced isolation and battered by an unceasing barrage of political insanities, the serrated wit and surrealist insights of Fake Dudes arrives with the kinetic force of a madcap sermon.  Fake Dudes reconvenes the geographically scattered members of Magnet Animals - Minneapolis-born, Mexico City-based Clouser, Mexican drummer Jorge Servin, and Abraxas bandmates Eyal Maoz (guitar) and Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz (bass) - four years after their bracing debut, 2016's Butterfly Killer. The startling dreamscape imagery and throttling grooves will be familiar to fans of that initial outing, though Fake Dudes trades it's predecessor's occasional airiness for a far more ferocious and claustrophobic concoction.

John Zorn/Chaos Magick ....CD $18.99

John Zorn/Chaos Magick ....CD $18.99

Nothing is true, everything is permitted. Chaos Magick is a contemporary magical practice based on the ideas of Austin Osman Spare. Remarkably inclusive, it embraces and has influenced the work of William Burroughs, Robert Anton Wilson, Aleister Crowley and many others. Inspired by these magical practices, Zorn enlists the three members of his most powerful 21st century ensemble Simulacrum with special guest Brian Marsella on electric piano into this eclectic new quartet Chaos Magick. A fast moving, improvisational and intensely focused ensemble that draws upon classical, jazz, funk, improvisation, metal and more. This music is even crazier than Electric Masada, a must for all fans of the outer realms!

Philip Glass/Itaipu: The Canyon ....import CD $15.99

Philip Glass/Itaipu: The Canyon ....import CD $15.99

Itaipu is a place between Brazil and Paraguay and hosts a large hydro-electric dam. This album is a work of massive proportions much like the creation of the Itaipu dam. On this work Glass makes good use of a heavy brass section combined with a large chorus and is around 40 minutes in length, spread over 4 movements. The extensive choral work is written in the language of the Giuranni Indians. Glass often chooses obscure languages for the effect of distance. This is a powerful pair of compositions and it is a good coupling on this recording. On the opener "Itaipu" and the closing track "The Canyon" the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and chorus with Robert Shaw do a truly grand job of performance. It's a superb Glass work and a real classic of the '90s.

Soft Works/Abracadabra in Osaka ....2 CD Set $28.99

Elton Dean: saxello, alto sax, Fender Rhodes
Allan Holdsworth: guitar
Hugh Hopper: bass guitar
John Marshall: drums

The idea of Soft Works first arose in 2000 as an initiate of Leonardo Pavkovic, to revive and reconnect some of the great musicians who had played in Soft Machine. Soft Works, with the above line up, was the first solid iteration of this idea, although the band wasn't long lived and recorded one studio album and played only 11 concerts. Eventually, with some lineup shifts, the band became Soft Machine Legacy and now are known simply as Soft Machine. This is a great live documentation of four extraordinary and legendary players touching on their legacy, but generally performing new music, from their studio album. Dedicated to the loving memory of Elton Dean, Hugh Hopper and Allan Holdsworth. With love, John Marshall and Leonardo Pavkovic.  Recorded live in Osaka, August 11, 2003. 28 page booklet.

John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band [Super Deluxe Edition] ....6 CD + 2 Blu-Ray + Hardbound Book Box Set $129.99

On April 16, Yoko Ono Lennon and Capitol/UMe will celebrate 50 years of Lennon's transformational and influential masterpiece, with the eight-disc super deluxe box set, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band - The Ultimate Collection, an immersive, deep listening experience and in-depth exploration of what John described as "the best thing I've ever done." The Ultimate Collection puts listeners in the center of the studio and explores the album's 1970 recording sessions at EMI Studios 2 & 3, Abbey Road along with Lennon's post-Beatles singles, "Give Peace a Chance," "Cold Turkey" and "Instant Karma! (We All Shine On)" from inception to the final master through scores of unreleased and rare demos, rehearsals, outtakes, jams and studio conversations, revealing how these beloved songs came to be. Everything in this expansive box set has been newly mixed from scratch from brand new 192kHz/24bit hi-res transfers. In addition to the various new mixes, the set boasts 87 never-before-heard recordings.   From the haunting, funereal bells and emotional wails of opening track "Mother," it was immediate - John Lennon's first solo studio album was unlike anything he had made before. Recorded in 1970, shortly after the demise of The Beatles, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band saw John stripping away the artifice and ornamentation for a visceral artistic exorcism that was confessional, raw, painfully honest, and revelatory. Inspired by the primal scream psychotherapy he and wife Yoko Ono had been practicing with Dr. Arthur Janov, John, joined by the minimalist Plastic Ono Band - Ringo Starr on drums and Klaus Voorman on bass, and producer Phil Spector - confronted his demons, professed his love for his wife, railed against false idols and declared the dream was over on his most personal album. Today it stands as the towering achievement of his solo career - the moment the biggest rock star in the world bared his soul for all to hear - as real as it was revolutionary.  This historical, remixed and remastered collection features 159 tracks across six CDs and two Blu-ray audio discs for more than 11 engrossing hours of music and includes two postcards ("Who Are The Plastic Ono Band?" and "You Are The Plastic Ono Band") a "War Is Over!" poster and a comprehensive 132-page hardback book with lyrics, rare photos, tape box images, memorabilia and extensive notes. Designed and edited by Simon Hilton, the Compilation Producer and Production Manager of the Ultimate Collection series, the book tells the story behind each of the songs and the making of the album in John & Yoko's words and the words of those who worked alongside them, through archival and brand new interviews.

The single CD edition includes John Lennon's classic debut solo album plus three singles, featuring John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voormann, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston & Phil Spector. Completely remixed from the original multi-tracks at Abbey Road Studios by engineer Paul Hicks, overseen by producer Yoko Ono Lennon. Contains Ultimate Mixes of the original album + singles "Give Peace A Chance," "Cold Turkey" and "Instant Karma! (We All Shine On)." The Deluxe Edition second CD contains outtakes of each.  The Super Deluxe Edition box set includes:  6 CDs containing 6 hours 18 mins of music including raw mixes, outtakes, studio jams, improvisations, etc: 102 tracks in 44.1kHz/16bit stereo; 2 Blu-Ray Audio Discs containing over 11 hours of music: 159 tracks of High-Definition, Studio Quality 192kHz/24bit audio, including mixes in Stereo, 5.1 Surround and Dolby Atmos; a 132-page hardbound book; Poster: 'WAR IS OVER! (IF YOU WANT IT) Love and Peace from John & Yoko'; 2 Postcards: 'Who Are The Plastic Ono Band?' and 'You Are The Plastic Ono Band'

I know it's amazing to say, but time has passed in a moment, the blink of an eye, the chemistry is the chemistry, and it didn't change." Petrucci comments, "It's relentless. When you press play, it steamrolls you."  Available in a variety of formats, including 2 CD in digipak, a limited 2 CD/Blu-Ray Artbook edition, and a deluxe opaque hot pink 3LP/2CD/Blu-Ray boxset.

Global Village Trucking Company/Smiling Revolution: Remastered Anthology ....import 2 CD Set $23.99

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered 2 disc anthology by Global Village Trucking Company, "Smiling Revolution." Between March 1972 and their final performance at The Nottingham Boat Club in August 1975, the Global Village Trucking Company played 390 gigs. In that time, they gained many friends, fans and admirers. A Global Village gig was always a special occasion, full of unexpected moments and often passages of true inspiration. They were constantly pushing and stretching the boundaries, with a huge appetite for improvisation that often took them to giddy musical heights. It was for good reason that they were frequently referred to as Britain's answer to the Grateful Dead. And amongst this there was also a lot of damn fine playing, a repertoire of outstanding songs, a charismatic frontman, and an ability to take the audience with them to wherever they chose to go that night. They never lost sight of giving people a good time, and very few people left a show without a smile on their face. In that three and a half year period the key line up of the band was singer, chief songwriter and rhythm guitarist Jon Owen, James Lascelles on keyboards, drummer Simon Stewart, Michael Medora on lead guitar, and John McKenzie on bass. Aside from being stalwarts of the UK gig circuit and festival scene, Global Village Trucking Company recorded a series of sessions for the legendary DJ John Peel. Their communal life at Beehive Cottage in the Norfolk countryside attracted the interest of the BBC, who made a documentary on the band, By Way of a Change. The group made their first appearance on record in January 1974 on the album Greasy Truckers Live at Dingwall's Dance Hall, a live double album at an event staged by the alternative music and events promoters which also featured Henry Cow, Camel and Gong. Following this Global Village Trucking Company recorded their only album at Rockfield Studios intended for release on a new label to be established by Dave Robinson (later founder of Stiff Records). The proposed record company failed to materialize and by the summer of 1975 the band had called it a day and an arrangement was made with Virgin Records to release the album posthumously on Virgin's Caroline label. Forty years on, Smiling Revolution has been compiled by the band and gathers together the band's legendary album as originally intended, their tracks from the Greasy Truckers release, John Peel session tracks and other previously unreleased delights, all superbly remastered by acclaimed producer Robin Millar. It also features lavishly illustrated booklets and an absorbing essay detailing the story of this unique group. The band's star shone briefly, but it shone bright. They touched the lives of many. Those who enjoyed them back then will relish the opportunity to relive that now. And for those discovering the music for the first time - welcome to the world of the Global Village Trucking Company!

The Edgar Broughton Band/The Edgar Broughton Band ....import CD $15.99

The Edgar Broughton Band, founded in 1968 in Warwick, England, was one of those unique late '60s/early '70s bands having their own fanbase and a psychedelic blues-rock sound with occult tendencies. Their self-titled 1971 third album is an eclectic album that changes pace from song to song and is also known as 'The Meat Album' containing guest appearances by Roy Harper, David Bedford and Mike Oldfield. They were the people's band, working man's rock and roll, who let their politics show clearly in their lyrics. Their heavily blues-rock influenced sound was hard-driven and propelled by Edgar Broughton's gritty vocal style, similar to those of Captain Beefheart and Howlin' Wolf.

Ken Hensley/My Book of Answers ....import CD $20.99

On 5th November 2020 it was with great sadness that Ken Hensley, former Uriah Heep keyboard player and songwriter passed away peacefully following a very short illness. Hensley was one of the most important musicians of the past half-a-century. His work with Uriah Heep in the 1970s helped to make the band hugely influential. He also collaborated with bands such as Blackfoot, W. A. S. P. and Cinderella, as well as building a very successful solo career. As a writer he was responsible for such classics as 'Lady in Black,' 'Easy Livin,' 'July Morning' and 'Look at Yourself.' Few artists can claim to have had a musical career and pedigree as long, varied and impressive. After forming The Gods in mid-1960s London with future Stones and Mayall guitarist Mick Taylor, Ken made brief appearances with Toe Fat and Head Machine before joining Uriah Heep in time for the band's debut album, "Very 'Eavy... Very 'Umble." His solo career kicked off in 1973 with "Proud Words on a Dusty Shelf," and Ken remained as busy and prolific as ever, with sales in excess of 45 million albums. "My Book of Answers" started with a chance encounter at Alicante airport on a flight bound for Moscow in 2018, when Russian businessman Vladimir Emelin (whose hobby is writing poetry) approached Ken. Vladimir didn't have a background in the music industry, and had never made a record but had been a big rock fan all his life, with a special appreciation of Ken. Ken Hensley said: "As someone who does not believe in coincidence, I would like to say that it all happened by "divine chance!" A chance meeting at Alicante Airport, scribbled notes exchanged on board the flight to Moscow, a few emails, a private concert and then a meeting at the Soho Bar in Alicante Harbour. "From translations of Vladimir's Russian words into English, Ken fashioned choruses and verses until he had the basis for nine original new songs. The main stumbling block to starting this record was finding the time to create it. And then the pandemic happened. Thankfully advances in modern technology meant that this album could be created and completed remotely. The album sees Ken also returning to play slide and lead guitars as well as his classic Hammond playing and of course lead vocals. "My Book of Answers" was finished and scheduled for release before his death. Cherry Red are extremely proud to represent this very special record. Ken had more collaborations planned, including a combined book of their poetry. We'll leave the last word to Ken: "Vladimir and I hope that you will get some real pleasure from something that really defined itself as we went along... "

Al Stewart/Year of the Cat [45th Anniversary Limited Edition Box Set] ....import 3 CD + DVD Box Set $79.99

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded 2 CD edition of Year of the Cat along with a new re-mastered four-disc deluxe 45th anniversary boxed set limited edition (comprising 3 CDs and a DVD), the legendary 1976 album by Al Stewart. Recorded in the early months of 1976 at Abbey Road studios (with some sessions and mixing taking place at Davlen Studios in Los Angeles), Year of the Cat was the seventh album by Stewart and was the second album on which he collaborated with the celebrated producer Alan Parsons. The record was an album of immense musical inventiveness and creativity and was a triumph both in terms of Al Stewart's song writing and the stunning and sophisticated production by Alan Parsons. Featuring such classic songs as 'On the Border,' 'Lord Grenville,' 'Midas Shadow,' 'If It Doesn't Come Naturally, Leave It,' 'One Stage Before' and the classic title track. Year of the Cat was a major commercial and critical success on it's release, reaching the US Billboard Top Five and was a European hit, eventually earning platinum disc status in the USA by March 1977. The single "Year of the Cat" was also a Top Ten hit in the States and was a Top 40 hit single in the UK, establishing Al Stewart as a major artist. The two disc edition of this special album has been newly re-mastered for the very first time from the original first-generation master tapes by Alan Parsons and also includes nine live tracks recorded at the Paramount Theater, Seattle in October 1976 on the Year of the Cat tour and a new mix of the track 'Belsize Blues,' recorded at Abbey Road Studios in September 1975. This release also features an illustrated booklet with a new essay featuring an interview with Al Stewart and is a fitting tribute to a much treasured and legendary masterpiece by a consummate song writer and performer.

The 45th Anniversary edition also features Alan Parson's stunning new 5. 1 Surround sound mix from the original multi-track tapes. In addition, the set includes a COMPLETE, previously unreleased concert recorded at the Paramount Theater, Seattle in October 1976 on the Year of the Cat tour over two CDs and a new mix of the track 'Belsize Blues,' recorded at Abbey Road Studios in September 1975. This limited edition boxed set also features an illustrated 68-page book with a new essay featuring an interview with Al Stewart and a facsimile promotional poster and a set of four postcards and is a fitting tribute to a much treasured and legendary masterpiece by a consummate song writer and performer.

Neil Young/Young Shakespeare [Deluxe Edition] ....LP + CD + DVD Box Set $69.99

Just two months after the release of his seminal album After the Gold Rush, Neil Young played a solo show at The Shakespeare Theater, Stratford, CT on January 22 1971. The show was filmed and recorded, and the concert shown on German TV later in 1971. In 2020, while Neil and his team were reviewing his Archive for future projects, Neil revisited the 16mm film and audio recording of this show that had been preserved in the Archive for almost 50 years. Piecing together the tapes and footage, Neil realized that he had the full concert - the film of which is the earliest live footage of Neil performing that is known to exist. Neil has written on NYA that this show is "superior to our beloved 'Massey Hall.' A more calm performance, without the celebratory atmosphere of Massey Hall, captured live on 16mm. 'Young Shakespeare' is a very special event. To my fans, I say this is the best ever." As an insight into Neil's prolific song writing at the time, the concert features two songs from the recently released After the Gold Rush but four songs from the classic Harvest album that was still over a year away from being released. The wonderful set list also includes acoustic renditions of favorites such as "Ohio," "Cowgirl in the Sand," "Helpless," "Down by the River" and "Sugar Mountain." The ancient analog tapes have been lovingly restored - resulting in (as Neil says on NYA) "one of the most pure sounding acoustic performances we have in the Archive." This beautiful concert is being released on LP and CD, plus a deluxe boxed edition that includes both LP and CD and, for the first time ever, a DVD of the concert. Young Shakespeare is being released almost exactly 50 years after the original performance.

T2/It'll All Work Out in Boomland [Remastered & Expanded] ....import 3 CD Set $38.99

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a re-mastered and expanded 3 CD digipack edition of the cult 1970 album by progressive rock power trio T2. Formed in 1970 by Peter Dunton, a former drummer with Gun, and former members of Bulldog Breed, guitarist and backing vocalist Keith Cross and Bernard Jinks (bass, backing vocals), T2 officially released one classic studio album during their short career, It'll All Work Out in Boomland, issued by Decca Records in July 1970. Taking the template established by acts such as The Who, Cream and Jeff Beck Group, the maturity of the music belies the young age of the band. Featuring only four tracks, the album's highlights included No More White Horses, perhaps the piece-de-resistance of the album, an amazingly powerful song with a wonderful horn arrangement, building to a powerful feedback-laden climax and the twenty-minute long Morning. The album earned much praise upon it's release and the band's live performances hailed the teenager Keith Cross as "the new Eric Clapton," much against his wishes. Despite this, issues with their record company, combined with a general dissatisfaction led to Cross departing the band after the trio had recorded a series of excellent tracks for a potential second album that failed to materialise after the band were dropped by Decca. By 1971 Bernard Jinks had also departed and Peter Dunton formed a new line-up of the band featuring guitarist Andrew Bown and bassist John Weir. This new line-up performed on the UK concert circuit and also recorded a series of fine tracks in the search of a new recording contract. Alas, by the end of 1972 T2 disbanded. By the new millennium It'll All Work Out in Boomland had been re-appraised and had attracted a cult following among aficionados of progressive and underground rock of the early 1970s, even leading to several tracks being sampled by DJs on dance tracks. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the original Decca master tapes and has been expanded by a further two CDs featuring their later recordings made in 1970 and 1971-1972. T2's sole Decca album is presented here as a recognized classic of the era. Open your ears to Boomland!

Billy Cobham/A Funky Thide of Sings ....import CD $15.99

"A Funky Thide of Sings" is all about the funk! Space rock drumming to be precise. The album opener "Panhandler" begins with an eerie type of ambience that reminds of hiding under a rock until this unexplainable ominous danger above clears. This song keeps a tight melody flowing and even when an extraordinary jazzy guitar solo comes in, the song remains high-octane and awesome. Keith Jarrett's "Sorcery" displays the Cobham funk sound at it's best. "Moody Modes" lives up to it's name! 'A Funky Thide Of Sings' is an album with Cobham's thunderous drumrolls and triple kick bass drums, with his signature sound. To hear them is to realize you'll always recognize, and appreciate what a great drummer sounds like.

The Art of Losing is the second album from Welsh multi-instrumentalist The Anchoress (aka Catherine Anne Davies), following up on her critically acclaimed debut album, 'Confessions of a Romance Novelist,' which was named amongst the Guardian critics' Albums of the Year, won HMV's Welsh Album of the Year, Best Newcomer at the PROG awards, and a nomination for the Welsh Music Prize. Written & produced by Davies, the new album features guest vocal performances from James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers) & drums from Sterling Campbell (David Bowie, Duran Duran) along with the mixing talents of Dave Eringa (Manics, Wilko Johnson) & grammy-award winner Mario McNulty (David Bowie, Prince, Laurie Anderson). 'The Art of Losing' ambitiously navigates the topic of loss in all it's forms and was written and recorded during an unfeasibly busy few years as Davies found solace and purpose in a range of projects whilst navigating her griefs. Most recently this came via the release of her collaborative album 'In Memory of My Feelings' with Bernard Butler (on Pete Paphides' label 'Needle Mythology'), duetting with the Manic Street Preachers on 'Resistance Is Futile,' and being personally invited by The Cure's Robert Smith to perform at his Meltdown Festival. She also brought a new generation of ears to legendary Scottish rock band Simple Minds, where she spent much of the last five years appearing on the 'Big Music' (2015) & 'Walk Between Worlds' (2018) albums. 14 track digipack CD edition with 24-page full colour booklet.

Ten Years After/A Sting in the Tale [Deluxe Edition] ....CD $16.99

For fans of Alvin Lee, Ten Years After, and classic rock! Over fifty years since the release of their eponymous debut album in 1967, Ten Years After has returned with a new studio album containing twelve tracks titled "A Sting in the Tale." This "Deluxe Edition" also contains 4 live tracks from the bands recent tour including an amazing rendition of the smash hit "I'd Love to Change the World," which remains as relevant today as when first released in 1971. The beginning of their meteoric rise to fame can be pinpointed to their performance at The Woodstock Music and Arts Festival in August 1969. The audience were blown away by the intensity of the band's performance and their unique combination of jazz, blues and rock, and their enigmatic frontman Alvin Lee. This made them one of the biggest bands of the early '70s. As well as original members Ric Lee (Drums) and Chick Churchill (Keys), the band now features bass icon Colin Hodgkinson (Peter Green, Spencer Davis, Chris Rea) and multi-award winning guitarist/vocalist Marcus Bonfanti (Van Morrison, Ginger Baker, Ronnie Wood). The title "A Sting In The Tale" reflects the same sentiment Ric & Chick wished to convey in the 2015 live album "The Name Remains the Same." Although the band lineup has changed and the music continues to evolve and grow fifty years on, the sound of the band will always be heavily rooted in the way they paved the way during the late sixties and early seventies and will never forget its incredible heritage. This new record is the 'Sting' in the continuing Tale of Ten Years After.

"In the late 1980s I lived in Westport, Connecticut. I was between jobs and bands, and so were many of my contemporaries. Luckily many of them lived close by, or would otherwise frequent the area, and I was able to put together a number of "Corky Laing All Stars" shows in 1988 and 1989. The musicians would change from show to show, however Mark Clarke (ex Uriah Heep and Mountain) played bass quite frequently and Roger Ball (ex Average White Band) was often on saxophone. At one time or another, I was happy to be joined on stage by the likes of Levon Helm (The Band), Meatloaf, Felix Cavaliere (ex The Rascals), and Mick Taylor (ex Rolling Stones).

The Residents/Freak Show [pREServed Edition] ....import 3 CD Set $24.99

Formed in the early 1970s, The Residents have been charting a unique path through the musical landscape for almost fifty years. From far-out, experimental recordings to highly conceptual, innovative multi-platform projects, the band refuses to stand still, and continues to move in several different directions at once. Produced with The Cryptic Corporation using archival tapes supplied by the group themselves, this package explores and expands the classic 1990 album, which formed the basis of a move into multi-media work which characterized The Residents' '90s output. 'Freak Show' explores a series of character studies of unfortunates and unloveables, all of whom have their origin in The Residents' own childhood memories of travelling 'freak shows,' such as they were. This 3CD set includes the original album and related contemporary tracks, an entire CD detailing the evolution of the album's musical content throughout 1990 and live interpretations of all of the album's tracks, including the legendary 'Ty's Freak Show' performance. 28 unreleased recordings in all! Remastered, expanded, and preserved for future generations - this is The Residents as we've always wanted to hear them, and the latest in a series of archival reissues that will continue throughout 2021 and beyond.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor/G_d's Pee AT STATE'S END! ....CD $14.99

Godspeed You! Black Emperor/G_d's Pee AT STATE'S END! ....CD $14.99

The inimitable GYBE returns with another soundtrack for our times. As the heretical anarcho-punk spirit of the title implies, Godspeed harnesses some particularly raw power, spittle and grit across two riveting 20-minute side-length trajectories of noise-drenched widescreen post-rock: inexorable chug blossoms into blown-out twang, as some of the band's most soaring, searing melodies ricochet and converge amidst violin and bassline counterpoint. Field recordings and roiling semi-improvised passages frame these fervent epics, and two shorter self-contained 6-minute pieces find the band at it's most devastatingly beautiful, haunting and elegiac. Poignant atmospherics, noise-drenched orchestration, drone, hypnotic swingtime crescendos, inexorably-layered towers of distorted clarion sound: STATE'S END encapsulates every beloved facet of the band. Twenty-five years on, this new album is as vital, stirring, timely and implacable as any in Godspeed You! Black Emperor's storied discography. Recorded and mixed by Jace Lasek, the veteran award-winning indie producer (and co-founder of The Besnard Lakes) who works with Godspeed for the first time on this recording.

K. Leimer/Found Objects ....CD $16.99

K. Leimer/Found Objects ....CD $16.99

Found object is a loan translation from the French objet trouve, describing art created from undisguised, but often modified, objects or products that are not normally considered materials from which art is made, often because they already have a non-art function. Like the results from automatic writing and readymades, Found Objects offers an approximation of those techniques in sound by repurposing displaced phrases and timbres, pitches, restatements, and treatments as the root technique. K. Leimer describes it this way: "I worked toward a greater variety of outcomes between each of the pieces, with the goal of providing a more diverse listening experience. At the same time it became important to avoid any specific sense of adhering to a particular genre." After eleven months in the studio, Found Objects finally became music, but only as the result of almost continuous, arbitrarily redirected accidents.

Daniel Lanois/Heavy Sun ....CD $13.99

Daniel Lanois/Heavy Sun ....CD $13.99

Heavy Sun, the soulful, debut from Lanois and his invigorating new all-star band. Recorded in Los Angeles and Toronto, the album fuses classic gospel and modern electronics, mixing gritty, human textures with crisp, digital accents and lush, swirling atmospherics to create a sound that's at once warmly familiar and boldly unexpected. The arrangements here are spacious and dreamy, anchored by rich, righteous organ topped with airy falsetto and mesmerizing four-part harmony, and the writing is buoyant and soulful to match, tapping into the shared uncertainty of the human condition to offer hope, comfort, and connection at a time when all three run in desperately short supply.

John Zorn/Teresa de Avila ....CD $18.99

Preceded by Nove Cantici per Francesco d'Assisi and Virtue (for Julian of Norwich), Teresa de Avila is the third and final CD in Zorn's trilogy inspired by towering figures of Christian mysticism. Written for the all-star acoustic guitar trio of Bill Frisell, Julian Lage and Gyan Riley whose performances are steeped in a feeling of love and mutual respect, the music is both beautifully simple and strangely complex, drawing equally on classical modernism, bluegrass, jazz, Jewish and renaissance music. Filled with compositional surprises, mysterious moods, beautiful harmonies and a stunning lyricism, Teresa de Avila is a must-have for all fans of acoustic guitar music. This is one of the most personal and varied books of music Zorn has yet written, a lovely tribute to the enduring legacy of one of the world's most beloved spiritual figures. Includes an extended appreciation by renown philosopher Arnold Davidson.

Mark Wingfield, Jane Chapman and Adriano Adewale/Zoji ....CD $18.99

Mark Wingfield, Jane Chapman and Adriano Adewale/Zoji ....CD $18.99

When Mark Wingfield, Jane Chapman and Adriano Adewale came to breathe life into these ornate and dazzling compositions they collectively embarked on a process that would have them prospecting in the eddying silt of imagination and intuition. As each player exchanged ideas, modified aspects of the pieces, and brought their energy, momentum, and focus to the work, new and exciting music swirled into being. The result is a remarkable collection of music that sits beyond the usual stylistic considerations or generic boundaries, creating its own parallel time existing alongside our own time but not fully part of it. A luminous presence with echoes in other times, other places, perhaps Jane Chapman sums it up best: 'What I enjoy about Mark's compositions is that you are never sure exactly where he is taking you, and which new worlds they will reveal.'

Dennis Rea/Giant Steppes ....CD $18.99

Dennis Rea/Giant Steppes ....CD $18.99

MoonJune stalwart Dennis Rea (Moraine, Iron Kim Style, Zhongyu) continues his series of 'musical travelogues' with Giant Steppes, a boldly unconventional exploration of Central Asian music that follows on from his acclaimed 2010 MoonJune release Views from Chicheng Precipice. Recorded over several years in Seattle and Siberia, Giant Steppes is the ever-unpredictable guitarist/composer/arranger's most ambitious album so far, interpolating Silk Road desert airs, Russian choral songs, Tuvan throat singing, and mutant Tibetan pop with a gleeful yet respectful disregard for genre purity. The album is all over the map both geographically and sonically, mingling jazz, heavy prog, krautrock, surf, electroacoustic soundscapes, and field recordings and showcasing such formidable musicians as Tuvan singer Albert Kuvezin (Yat Kha), celebrated Russian choral ensemble Juliana & PAVA, badass bassist Wadim Dicke, trumpet mage Greg Kelley, Rea's 1970s Earthstar bandmate Daniel Zongrone, and Seattle treasures Steve Fisk, Doug Haire, Stuart Dempster, Dick Valentine, Don Berman, Greg Campbell, Brian Oppel, and Greg Powers.

Kaleidoscope/Sky Children: The Best Of Kaleidoscope & Fairfield Parlour ....import CD + DVD $19.99

Kaleidoscope/Sky Children: The Best Of Kaleidoscope & Fairfield Parlour ....import CD + DVD $19.99

First US compilation for this much beloved, yet often overlooked, UK group capturing highlights from their entire recorded legacy. Emerging from the British 1967 Psychedelic scene, Kaleidoscope released two fine albums (Tangerine Dream, Faintly Blowing) and several non-LP singles with Fontana before switching to Vertigo and evolving into the more folkier and progressive Fairfield Parlour in 1970. This newly remastered collection includes their hit "Bordeaux Rose" plus key album cuts like "The Sky Children," "Snapdragon" and the tour-de-phase "Music." Also included is an early demo from 1964 when these four men, Peter Daltrey, Eddie Pumer, Steve Clark and Danny Bridgman, were a driving beat combo known as the Sidekicks. The set also includes a DVD of previously unreleased/unbroadcast footage from French & German TV archives in addition to video from the band's memorable final performance in London, 2017. A fabulous introduction to their seminal catalog as well as a must have for any serious Kaleidoscope/Fairfield Parlour collector.

Strawbs/Settlement ....import CD $18.99
Strawbs/Settlement [180 Gram Vinyl] ....import Vinyl LP $34.99

Strawbs/Settlement ....import CD $18.99

Esoteric Antenna is delighted to announce the release of the new studio album by the legendary band Strawbs. Settlement is the latest album recorded by Strawbs, more than 50 years on from the band's first major label release. The album comes at a time of political and social upheaval, which the lyrics and melodies of the songs reflect. Undeterred by the fact that 'business as usual' was not possible because of the global Covid-19 pandemic - working remote from one another, from their own home studios - Settlement is a remarkable achievement.  David Cousins, leader of Strawbs says: "Settlement is something extraordinary. I can't think of another band who can go from metal grunge to the lilt of an Irish ghost story - or from a song in 6/8 time to singing in 4/4 over a 5/4 backbeat - in half an hour. The lyrics reflect the times we have been living through and I'm immensely proud of what we've achieved."  Settlement is produced by Blue Weaver who played with Strawbs and Bee Gees in their 1970s heydays. The recording was coordinated from Blue's studio in Germany, where he now lives. Strawbs are David Cousins, Dave Lambert, Chas Cronk, Tony Fernandez and Dave Bainbridge. Special guests on the album are John Ford, another former member of Strawbs, who lives in New York, Cathryn Craig, with her lovely voice and unmistakable Southern lilt, who lives in Northern Ireland, and bass player Schalk Joubert, with whom David Cousins performed in South Africa at the beginning of the year. "There comes a time when every Settlement is due!"

John Renbourn Group/A Maid in Bremen [Live at Roemer, Bremen Feb. 14th 1978] ....import CD $22.99

In 1967 the British guitarist and songwriter John Renbourn together with his friend Bert Jansch founded the British folk rock band Pentangle. Like Jansch, Renbourn was considered an outstanding representative of the British "Folk Baroque" and fingerpicking playing technique. Since 1968 Renbourn successfully recorded several albums with Pentangle for the well-known UK folk/folk rock label Transatlantic. After the release of the album "Solomon's Seal" in 1973, the band members went separate ways. From then on Bert Jansch and John Renbourn realized solo plans. Albums like "The Lady and the Unicorn" and "The Hermit" by John Renbourn are still considered milestones today of British folk rock. In 1977 John founded the John Renbourn Group, recorded two studio albums and a live album with them and was busy touring again around the world. A 1978 live-recording by Radio Bremen from the Roemer in Bremen/Germany also bears witness to these live activities. Again with John on stage: the former Pentangle singer Jaqui McShee. Multi-instrumentalist Tony Roberts, the well-known Indian tabla player Keshav Sathe (among others: John Mayer, Julie Felix) and the American cellist Sandy Spencer (member of the French based prog folk rock band Mormos, later also with the well-known Trevor Watts String Ensemble) completed the line-up of the John Renbourn Group in Bremen that night. Jacqui McShee, who also wrote the liner notes for the booklet to this album, still remembers the Bremen concert: "To my knowledge this is the only recording of Sandy with the group, she left soon afterwards to return to America." And goes on: "I have been chatting to Tony recently (we laughed a lot) and of course we both miss John and Kesh, but we have these wonderful recordings and the albums that we made and we have a sense of pride in the music we played together."

Guru Guru/Live in Essen 1970 ....import CD $17.99

Stunning quality, rare live performance recordings of krautrock pioneers Guru Guru, from one of their earliest ever live concerts on Sunday October the 25th 1970. Three long slabs of prime classic psychedelic prog, two from the 'UFO' album and one off 'Hinten,' show the band at their apex, defining a sound that had never been heard before. Sourced from tapes recorded directly from the sound desk at the show, the recording quality is phenomenal for something of this vintage era. The original line-up of Mani Neumeier - drums & vocals, Ax Genrich - guitar and Uli Trepte - bass & vocals, are present and on full power.  Guru Guru stood for space, psychedelic experience and electric magic. It stood for energy, imagination and freedom. Turn on, tune in, take off!

Be Bop Deluxe/Drastic Plastic [Deluxe Edition] ....import 4 CD + 2 DVD Box Set $85.99

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded 2 CD edition and new re-mastered six-disc deluxe expanded boxed set limited edition (comprising 4 CDs and two NTSTC - Region Free DVDs) of "Drastic Plastic" the classic1978 album by Be Bop Deluxe. "Drastic Plastic" would be the final Be Bop Deluxe album and was recorded in the summer of 1978 in the South of France at The Villa Saint Georges, Juan-les-Pins, utilising the Rolling Stones mobile studio, with final sessions taking place at The Manor Studio and Abbey Road Studios. The record saw Bill Nelson (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Charles Tumahai (bass, vocals), Andy Clark (keyboards) and Simon Fox (drums) venture into new musical styles, with the album being ground-breaking in its move to more "art rock" and "new wave" influences. In many ways it can be seen as the signpost to where Bill Nelson would head with his Red Noise project with a desire to continue to progress as an artist by pushing musical boundaries. Co-produced by Bill Nelson and John Leckie, "Drastic Plastic" was another hit album in both the UK and the USA and featured such classic material as 'Electrical Language,' 'Panic in the World,' 'New Mysteries,' 'Islands of the Dead' and 'Surreal Estate.' The recording sessions produced many more tracks which would appear as singles (such as 'Japan') and others that were originally planned for release as an EP set ('Autosexual,' 'Lovers are Mortal,' 'Speed of the Wind,' 'Quest for the Harvest of the Stars,' 'Face in the Rain'), all of which eventually appeared on the retrospective compilation The Best of & the Rest Of... later in 1978. The expanded two CD reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 25 tracks, drawn from stunning stereo mixes from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler and non-album singles and additional tracks recorded for an intended EP. This set also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson.

The expanded deluxe reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an additional 88 tracks, (43 of which are previously unreleased), drawn from stunning new 5. 1 surround sound & stereo mixes from the original multi-track tapes by award winning engineer Stephen W. Tayler, previously unreleased out-takes from the album sessions, a BBC Radio John Peel Show session from January 1978, along with a CD of Bill Nelson's previously unreleased demos for the album, "A Feeling of Playing." Also included is an additional DVD featuring Be Bop Deluxe in the South of France, (a collection of Bill Nelson's 8mm home movies shot whilst recording "Drastic Plastic") and the band's Sight & Sound In Concert performance for BBC TV from 1978. Another highlight of this limited-edition boxed set is the lavishly illustrated 68-page book with many previously unseen photographs and an essay of recollections by Bill Nelson. Additionally, the set includes postcards and a replica poster.  The two CD re-mastered and expanded edition and special deluxe limited edition of "Drastic Plastic" are a fitting tributes to the creative vision of Bill Nelson and the musicianship of Be Bop Deluxe.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the re-press of Tangerine Dream's classic live album "Pergamon." Recorded in January 1980 at the Palast der Republik, East Berlin, the album was originally released in East Germany in 1981 under the title "Quichotte."  The documented performance was one of the first by a western band in East Germany and earned Tangerine Dream many new fans in Eastern Europe. Featuring a line-up of Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and newly recruited member Johannes Schmoelling, the album was later released outside of East Germany under the title "Pergamon" (after the impressive museum in East Berlin).  This Esoteric Reactive edition features the original album artwork and includes a lavishly illustrated booklet and essay.

The Mastelottos/A Romantic's Guide to King Crimson ....CD $18.99

Valentine's Day 2021 delivers an unexpected and welcome surprise with the release of "A Romantic's Guide to King Crimson," the new 12-track album of reinvented King Crimson material by the husband and wife duo Deborah and Pat Mastelotto. The collection, which spans the band's entire history, revisits classics including "Matte Kudasai," "Heartbeat," "Moonchild," "Elephant Talk," "Peace," "Exiles," and "Sleepless."  "It's always been a joke in the King Crimson camp that there's never a line for the women's restrooms during intermissions," said Deborah. "King Crimson plays loud and it's often intense and raucous. But it can also be haunting and melodic, with some of the most beautiful lyrics ever. We wanted to help uncover that sweetness and introduce the songs to a different type of audience with 'A Romantic's Guide to King Crimson.'"

The project founder, pianist and composer Luca Zabbini, states that his passion for the music of famous keyboardist Keith Emerson (ELP) has fuelled his desire to compose and play a full range of styles, from classical to rock and jazz." - Prog Archives

Missing Persons/Spring Session M [2021 Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

Missing Persons/Spring Session M [2021 Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

Formed in 1980 by the core trio of Dale and Terry Bozzio along with Warren Cuccurullo (all Frank Zappa alumni), Missing Persons perfectly fit into the New Wave movement. With her quirky singing style and colorful homemade attire, Dale Bozzio created a unique image that was both ear and eye candy. Husband Terry brought powerhouse drumming to their sound that added immediate credibility. Future Duran Duran guitarist Warren brought a rocking guitar sound that could either provide a melodic accompaniment or blistering solo, all with a distinctive sound that was very much his own. Released in late 1982, the full length debut album Spring Session M (an anagram for the band's name) became an instant hit, eventually achieving Gold status. Now including additional members Patrick O'Hearn (another Zappa alumnus) and Chuck Wild on bass and keyboards, the music videos for the hit singles Words and Destination Unknown were put into heavy rotation on MTV. Two additional chart singles, Windows and Walking in L.A., were also released. Rubellan Remasters is proud to reissue the full catalog of the original Missing Persons. Dynamically remastered from original master tapes from the Universal Music tape archive, Spring Session M not only includes the original 12 album tracks, but has been expanded to include the additional songs from the debut EP, including one of their signature tunes Mental Hopscotch.

Missing Persons/Rhyme & Reason [2021 Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

Missing Persons/Rhyme & Reason [2021 Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

The 1984 sophomore album by Missing Persons, Rhyme & Reason, saw the band taking a more experimental approach. The prevailing sound of the album was Terry Bozzio's electronic drums and percussion. The album cover, with it's sophisticated black and white Helmut Newton photos showing a generally make-up free band, could be somewhat misleading because the music video for the first single, Give, showed Missing Persons as colorful and distinctive as ever. The pure pop Right Now was released as the second single and playful music video, while third single Surrender Your Heart took a more melodic approach with acoustic guitars complimenting the keyboard washes. The experimental All Fall Down and Racing Against Time added further layers to another strong album, while the albumn closes with what is arguably the best track, If Only For the Moment. Rhyme & Reason showed a band daring to try new things while succeeding to retain their identity. In addition to the original ten album tracks, this newly remastered from original tapes edition also includes an album outtake and two exceptional 12" single remixes.

Missing Persons/Color in Your Life [2021 Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

Missing Persons/Color in Your Life [2021 Remastered & Expanded Edition] ....CD $15.99

The third and final album from the original incarnation of Missing Persons appeared in 1986. Color in Your Life was given a big name producer in Bernard Edwards (from Chic) and a budget with the intention of advancing Missing Persons beyond their semi-cult status. Despite the big production sound, the album was still undeniably Missing Persons. Dale Bozzio's voice sounded strong and confident, Terry Bozzio's drumming was just as impressive as ever, Warren Cuccurullo's guitars were still given a spotlight despite the increased focus on the rhythm section, and Patrick O'Hearn's basslines remained intricate and detailed. The single I Can't Think about Dancin' looked straight to the club scene with a booming beat and groovy bassline. No Secrets and Face to Face maintained the high energy hooks fans had come to expect from Missing Persons, while Boy I Say to You continued the experimental side. Soon after the album's release, the band and the Bozzio's went their separate ways with each individual member going on to further success individually. Dynamically remastered from original tapes, this new edition includes the nine original album tracks along with a couple of album outtake and various remixes of I Can't Think About Dancin.'

Richard Barbieri/Under a Spell ....CD $16.99

Richard Barbieri/Under a Spell ....CD $16.99

The man whose illustrious career began in the late '70s with synth-pop visionaries Japan and more recently as a member of influential art-rock band Porcupine Tree follows up 2017's Planets + Persona with new album Under a Spell.  2017's Planets + Persona was adventurous and bold, showcasing Barbieri's endlessly inventive song writing and mastery of electronic music. Under a Spell picks up where that left off, journeying further into the expansive terrain he had sonically mapped out. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, everything changed. "I wrote and recorded it in my studio at home, with all this strangeness going on outside," says Barbieri. "It became something completely different: this weird, self-contained dream-state album."  On Under a Spell, Barbieri was intent on capturing the atmospheres and moods that his disconnected brain was conjuring rather than slaving over arrangements and melodies. Songs such as 'Flare,' 'Serpentine,' 'Sleep Will Find You' and its companion piece-of-sorts 'Darkness Will Find You' are sharply defined despite their dream-inspired genesis.  The album's title perfectly encapsulates the haunting, evocative world Barbieri has created. Songs such as the skittering, billowing 'Clockwork' and 'Sketch 6's dub-inspired soundscape hang suspended in that strange half-world between sleep and waking - a subconscious reflection of the surreal state the planet has found itself in over recent months.  There are voices but no vocals, collaborators include Marillion frontman Steve Hogarth and Swedish singer Lisen Rylander Love (who co-wrote 'A Star Light').  Barbieri's willingness to constantly redefine his own musical boundaries are never more evident than on the brilliant, hypnotic Under a Spell - the latest milestone on this utterly unique journey.

Japan/Quiet Life ....CD $14.99                Japan/Quiet Life [Deluxe Edition] ....3 CD + LP Box Set $67.99

That Japan's breakthrough record Quiet Life was released in both 1979 and 1980 is uniquely fitting for a band who were about to step out of the glam rock, post punk shadows of the late '70s and deliver an as yet genre-less record that would come to define the '80s. Japan included David Sylvian, Richard Barbieri, Mick Karn and Steve Jansen. Quiet Life was the third, final and most successful release on the Hansa Records label. A forerunner for the alternative/new wave sound of the new decade, the album would become one of the great classic British albums. The record is now the subject of a major new reissue featuring a brand new half-speed remaster of the original album, alt mixes, b-sides, singles, rarities and live material - including the sought after 'lost' Live at Budokan show from March 1980 previously only available as the 4 track EP 'Live in Japan.' The release features newly restored original album artwork, exclusive new liner notes with foreword by original producer, John Punter, rare and unseen photography and memorabilia.

Various Artists/Oh! You Pretty Things: Glam Queens & Street Urchins 1970-1976 ....import 3 CD Set $39.99

In the teenage wastelands of grey early seventies Britain, where the musical landscape was dominated by introspective singer-songwriters and dour rock bands, the emergence of the outrageous, androgynous, peacock-plumaged Glam Rock scene provided a vital spark in the dark. Sadly the genre was quickly hijacked by the backroom hustlers of the British music industry and their mutton-dressed-as-glam pop idol marionettes. However, Oh! You Pretty Things ignores such lightweight fripperies to concentrate on the real deal. We focus on the twin central strands of Glam Rock: the cerebral and the visceral, with the artier, experimental element of the scene joined by the Ladbroke Grove street rockers and the Steve Marriott-channelling chirpy Cockney geezer street urchins, many of whom had been to drama school and knew how to strike a pose. We examine the trash-aesthetic fault line that joined the seedy, no-longer-swinging London of the early seventies with New York's sleazy demi-monde and the incorrigible hucksters of Hollywood. The latter were led by Kim Fowley, ably assisted by LA scenester Rodney Bingenheimer, who opened Rodney's English Disco (allegedly at Bowie's suggestion), where the underage groupies, teenage runaways and glitter queens of Sunset Strip hung out with visiting British rock royalty and the likes of Alice Cooper and a wasted Iggy Pop. Incorporating huge British bands (Roxy Music, Slade, Sweet etc) and the leading US acts on the scene (New York Dolls, Jobriath, Lou Reed, Iggy & The Stooges), our four-hour anthology of prettiest stars, prima ballerinas and real cool traders covers all bases. Some acts were defined purely by glam, others (ELO, Strawbs, Thin Lizzy) merely paid the neighbourhood a fleeting visit, while the likes of Despair and England's Glory would only find their niche after the more streetwise element of glam mutated into punk. Big hits, inexplicable misses, seminal glam texts, cult classics, key album tracks, alternative versions and even a clutch of previously unreleased but essential recordings: Oh! You Pretty Things - housed in a clamshell box that contains a 40-page booklet of amazing photos and incredible stories - assembles all these and more to act as the definitive primer of a relatively short-lived but glorious musical and pop-cultural phenomenon.

Fernando Perdomo/TRGTR [The Music of Todd Rundgren] ....import CD $18.99

TRGTR is the new album by critically acclaimed guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Fernando Perdomo of Dave Kerzner Band, The New Empire, and Jakob Dylan's Echo in the Canyon band. TRGTR is the first all instrumental tribute album to the music of Todd Rundgren.  This is Fernando's second all instrumental tribute album following 2019's critically acclaimed "The Crimson Guitar" tribute to King Crimson. The 16 songs represent every era of Todd's 50 plus year career from The Nazz to a song off his forthcoming album "Space Force." Fernando Perdomo's remix of Todd's Collide-A-Scope won Todd's remix contest and his remix was released by Todd on his 2015 "Global Nation" Single. Perdomo plays all the instruments on the record except for Nick Bertling and Eddie Zyne who play drums on one track each. The record is not only a tribute to Todd's guitar playing and song writing... many steps were taken to recreate Todd's production techniques and signature sounds.

Lyle Workman/Uncommon Measures ....CD $12.99

Lyle Workman/Uncommon Measures ....CD $12.99

Bursting at the seams with soaring arrangements and virtuosic performances, Lyle Workman's 'Uncommon Measures' showcases not only Workman's unparalleled musicianship, but also his profound empathy and expansive emotional vocabulary. The songs here are living, breathing entities, constantly growing and evolving in ways both subtle and drastic, and the production is similarly unpredictable, veering from larger-than-life bombast to whispered intimacy and back, sometimes within the very same track. The result is a record as extraordinary as it is unexpected, a captivating, transportive song cycle that manages to scale the dizzying heights of joy and sadness, love and friendship, self-discovery and celebration, all without a single word. "Lyle Workman is a completely accomplished and inspired guitarist, musician and composer," says Steve Vai. "He has a wicked command of the instrument and is perhaps one of three players I know of that can wield exotic orchestral compositions with either a screaming or whispering guitar. 'Uncommon Measures' is the masterful evidence of this." Guest stars include Vinnie Colaiuta, Toss Panos, Charlie Bisharat and many more including a 63 piece orchestra recorded at Abbey Road Studio One.

Blackmore's Night/Nature's Light [Deluxe Edition] ....2 CD Set $19.99

"Our music is an escape from the stress and pressure of modern times. Journey back through time with us, to a simpler, magical time where music enters your heart and soul," say Candice Night and Ritchie Blackmore.  The ten new tracks make for a remarkable new record - one that could only have been written by Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night. Once again, the duo is able to mix the tradition of British Folk music and love for the Renaissance sound with their style, inspired by myths and legends of ancient times. Escapism reaching towards an ideal beauty found in different time, as understood perfectly by the audience that renews its love for Blackmore´s Night since its formation.   While the album is rooted in a traditional approach, fans of Ritchie Blackmore's unique style will once again not be disappointed. Heartfelt ballads such as a brand-new version of 'Wish You Were Here' set the scene for magical tales on 'Four Winds' and 'The Twisted Oak.' For the two instrumental tracks - 'Darker Shade Of Black' and 'Der letzte Musketier' - Ritchie shows that his unmistakable Fender Stratocaster guitar sound is still magic as it always was! The Deluxe Edition is a 2 CD media book with a second CD of nine Blackmore's Night classics.

Peter Green/Whatcha Gonna Do? ....import CD $17.99

Peter Green/Whatcha Gonna Do? ....import CD $17.99

'Whatcha Gonna Do?' is Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green's fourth solo album, the third in his middle period of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Considering this period of Peter Green's solo career, this is one of the best albums. All the tracks on the album were written by Green's brother Mike. "Gotta See Her Tonight" is bitterness itself, to a rock-reggae beat. "Lost My Love" is a subtly dynamic slow blues, with two superb solos that refer to Albert King. And then there's "Last Train to San Antone" with an architectural guitar solo. Green's guitar leads had gotten very elliptical but still has a nice pace and attack. There's an excellent rhythm section, particularly Fairport Convention drummer Dave Mattacks and a nice production job by Peter Vernon-Kell.

Toe Fat/Bad Side of the Moon: An Anthology 1970-1972 ....import 2 CD Set $23.99

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of Bad Side of the Moon, a new re-mastered two CD anthology featuring the recordings of the cult rock band Toe Fat. Formed in 1969 by former Rebel Rouser Cliff Bennett joined with former Gods keyboard player and guitarist Ken Hensley to form a new band that would take on board harder rock and progressive influences. Hensley drafted in fellow Gods members Lee Kerslake on drums and bassist John Glascock to form this new group, Toe Fat. The band signed to EMI's Parlophone label in late 1969 and their self-titled debut album was recorded at Abbey Road studios and was issued in May 1970 adorned in an infamous sleeve design by Hipgnosis and also featuring an early composition from Elton John/Bernie Taupin with 'Bad Side of the Moon.' In the USA Toe Fat appeared on Motown's rock imprint Rare Earth Records. The album was greeted with considerable critical praise, although commercial success failed to match the reaction from the UK music press. Hensley departed the band soon after to form Uriah Heep to be replaced by guitarist Alan Kendall.  Kerslake also departed and formed The National Head Band before joining Uriah Heep in 1971. He was replaced by Brian Glascock. Toe Fat 2 was issued on the Regal Zonophone label in November 1970 and featured an uncredited Peter Green on guitar on the track 'There'll Be Changes.' Once more the album sleeve design was by Hipgnosis and the record was greeted with praise but failed to chart. The band toured the USA and recorded a final single, issued on the Chapter 1 label in 1972 before disbanding. Over the decades the music of Toe Fat has earned cult status and their records are now highly collectable. This two CD collection features both albums by the band and also adds the very rare single 'Brand New Band' b/w 'Can't Live Without You' as bonus tracks. It also features an essay with an exclusive interview with Cliff Bennett.

Saga/Symmetry ....CD $14.99

After going on tour in spring 2020, Saga went straight into its home studios. The result: an album full of acoustic originals.  "Symmetry" offers a unique listening experience by bundling complex and delicate arrangements with familiar melodies and sounds. It gives the listener the possibility to explore and discover Saga classics like "Wind Him Up," "Say Goodbye to Hollywood" and "Tired World" once more and in a completely new way. Saga managed to create more than just new versions of their songs; they created a sonic world full of little details that invites the listeners to dive deeper into the complex musical phenomenon that is Saga.   Ian Crichton states about the album: "After opening for 'ourselves' on our 2017 European tour acoustically, the decision to record an acoustic record was born. This is different Saga, everyone! We invited, from Ontario, Canada, Shane Cook on fiddle, and Stefany Seki, Beth Silver on cello to accompany us on our offside interpretation of music we've played for years. [We] had a lot of fun doing so!

Lee Kerslake/Eleventeen ....import CD $20.99

Lee Kerslake/Eleventeen ....import CD $20.99

With a career that goes back to the 1960s, Lee Kerslake's first step into the rock limelight was with The Gods, recording "Genesis" in 1968 and "To Samuel a Son" in 1969.  Joining Toe Fat for their self-titled debut in 1970, via 1970's "Orgasm" by Head Machine, so far Lee had shared his musical journey with multi-instrumentalist and song writer Ken Hensley. This musical connection and friendship would be further cemented in 1972 when Lee joined Ken in Uriah Heep for the classic "Demons & Wizards" LP, remaining behind Heep's drum kit for the best part of 30 plus years. Lee also found time to make cameos drumming for Ken Hensley and David Byron solo records along the way, and most notably as a founder member of Ozzy Osbourne's solo band, drumming on the multi-platinum "Blizzard of Ozz" in 1980 and "Diary of a Madman in 1981. He also appeared with super group Living Loud, a band featuring bassist Bob Daisley, guitarist Steve Morse, singer Jimmy Barnes and keyboard player Don Airey. Standing down from drumming full-time for Uriah Heep in 2007 due to ill-health, Lee commenced his debut solo album in 2015 with Jake Libretto, completing the album in 2019. According to Lee's notes from the album, "WOW, I have to say now the album is finished there is a great sense of achievement. It's been a little over three years to record and finish it, it took so long because I could only manage two days a week and sometimes nothing for a period of time as the chemotherapy without my permission kept me away. Never mind it's done and I am very proud of the songs. "Eleventeen" is a collection of eight songs, seven of them written or co-written by Lee, and starts with Celia Sienna. Lee offers notes and insights for each track, and Take Nothing for Granted "is based around my wife and then some," evidently with tongue firmly in cheek. Where Do We Go From Here, which according to Lee, "It's all to late to realize... where do we go from here? I've had too many argumentative girls in my life!!!" You May Be By Yourself (But You're Never Alone), "This song was written when Bob Daisley gave such a loving look to squish his daughter it moved me all those years ago. " Port and a Brandy, according to Mick Box's dedication on the album, "The song 'Port and a Brandy' made me smile as we have shared many of them together over the years. " Next up is a heartfelt rendition of Carole King's timeless You've Got a Friend, which Lee dedicates to, "all of my friends past and present who I have loved through music." "Eleventeen" concludes with the instrumental Mom, which Lee wrote for, "all the mums in the world who we should never take for granted."  Lee sadly passed away in September 2020 at the age of 73. Leaving the last word to his friend and long-time Uriah Heep bandmate: "It fills me with great pride that he achieved this as his last final musical legacy."

Hawkwind have always been associated with music festivals, most notably the free festivals where Dave Brock has said that the band is not shackled to appease an audience by giving them what they expect and have paid to see. With that obligation removed, the band can relax and experiment more than usual and gigs become even more fun. When we think of Hawkwind and festivals the word Stonehenge leaps to the fore. The band always loved being there, enjoying the whole event as well as the freedom of how and when they played. The most important one of these was Stonehenge 1984 which proved to be the last festival before the authorities moved in the following year to block the festival from being set up and Hawkwind ended up playing a few miles away instead. Happily, the 1984 festival was recorded and filmed and the Hawkwind Solstice Eve and Solstice Morning were both preserved. Hawkwind played an interesting and varied main set in the evening, featuring a blend of old and new Hawkwind songs, along with numbers from Inner City Unit and Bob Calvert's Lucky Leif and the Starfighters album. In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere, there was a considerably extended version of Ghost Dance, lasting around ten minutes. The sunrise set was special too, with a long, laid-back, jam at dawn, in fitting with the occasion. A lovely and relaxing start to the day and the kind of jam they couldn't really play to a paying audience. It's good to have the memories of this significant festival gathered together in three formats. Enjoy this special set, which commemorates a special event, not only in the history of Hawkwind, but of the saga of Stonehenge festivals.

Anneke Van Giersbergen/The Darkest Skies Are the Brightest ....CD $14.99

The Darkest Skies Are the Brightest is Anneke van Giersbergen's 23rd career album. It was created in a time of personal crisis, with just an acoustic guitar and basic recording gear, in a small house near the woods just outside of Anneke's hometown, and it grew into something much bigger. Lyrically, and musically, the award-winning Dutch artist lays her soul bare with the most evocative record of her career - captivating song-stories told with acoustic guitars, strings, horns, percussion, and Anneke's hypnotic vocal harmonies, combined with surprising departures into swampier, foot-stomping grooves.

Yes/Union 30 Live [Super Deluxe Flight Case 30 Year Anniversary Edition] ....import 26 CD + 4 DVD Box Set $379.99

As you are probably aware, 2021 is the 30th anniversary of the critically acclaimed Yes Union Tour, featuring all 8 iconic members of the band. To celebrate this event, courtesy of Larry Magid Entertainment, Gonzo Multmedia has put together a special souvenir limited edition SUPER DELUXE BOX SET containing 30 discs! The main disc features a multi-camera shoot DVD, with accompanying soundtrack mixed by Trevor Rabin from the Shoreline Amphitheatre (8th August 1991) show. Also included in the box is a mixture of fan recordings, desk tapes and FM/Radio Broadcasts. These will be included with the main program, as a way for the band to combat this highly bootlegged tour, where some fans are paying in excess of $70 per show from various Japanese websites. All packaged in a fantastic flight case which accommodates 10 x 'fatpack' style jewel cases each containing 3x discs to make the 30 discs in total. Each heavy-duty flight case has been sprayed individually, and the stickers placed on by hand. No two flight cases are the same, making each one unique and a highly collectable piece of rock and roll memorabilia! This item will undoubtedly become both desirable and HIGHLY collectable. Rick Wakeman said about the project, "The hardcore fans will absolutely love this...me too....a very important era of YES history."

Ryuichi Sakamoto with Adrian Belew/Hidari Ude No Yume [Left Handed Dream] ....import CD $22.99

Wewantsounds present the reissue of Ryuichi Sakamoto's third solo album Hidari Ude No Yume (Left Handed Dream), originally released in 1981 on the Alfa label. Save for a small-scale Dutch vinyl release in 1981, it is the first time the album's original Japanese edition is released outside of Japan (the European release on Epic Records included significantly different tracks and mixes). Hidari Ude No Yume was recorded at the legendary Alfa Studio "A" in Tokyo during the Summer of 1981. it came after B-2 Unit in 1980 and his debut album Thousand Knives Of... in 1978, the very year Sakamoto was invited by Haruomi Hosono to join Yellow Magic Orchestra alongside Yukihiro Takahashi. In 1981, Sakamoto decided to record an album rooted in pop, following the more experimental B-2 Unit and his landmark electro debut. Sakamoto invited British producer Robin Scott to co-produce. They entered the Alfa studio in July 1981 with his fellow YMO musicians Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi, keyboard programmer extraordinaire Hideki Matsutake who'd been on Sakamoto's first two albums and became YMO's unofficial fourth member, violinist Kaoru Sato, saxophonist Satoshi Nakamura, and American guitarist Adrian Belew (David Bowie, The Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club and later King Crimson). Together, they created a fascinating mix of pop, ambient and electronic music with elements of avant-garde and traditional Japanese music, the whole firmly rooted in a solid groove. From the funk of "Relache" to the new wave feel of "Venezia" and the ambient minimalism of "Slat Dance," the album is remarkably consistent while displaying a wealth of global influences. The album was released in Japan in 1981 and Epic Records picked it up for Europe a year later but decided to release it in a significantly altered version. The sequencing was completely reshuffled and two tracks, "Saru No Ie" and "Living in the Dark" were completely dropped while three others, "Relache," "Tell 'em To Me," "Venezia" were heavily remodeled with English lyrics and different names. Last but not least, a new English-sung track, "The Arrangement," was added, making the album nine tracks instead of ten for the Japanese edition. Newly remastered from the original tapes by renowned engineer Bernie Grundman. Comes with original artwork featuring cover shot by famous photographer Masayoshi Sukita. Four-page insert with new introduction by journalist Anton Spice.

Steve Hackett/Under a Mediterranean Sky ....CD $16.99

Iconic guitarist Steve Hackett, releases his new acoustic album Under a Mediterranean Sky via InsideOut Music. Under a Mediterranean Sky is Steve Hackett's first acoustic solo album since Tribute in 2008 and takes inspiration from Steve's extensive travels around the Mediterranean with his wife Jo.  Working closely with long-time musical partner Roger King, Hackett has used his time during 2020's lockdown to take us on an extraordinary musical journey around the Mediterranean, painting vivid images of stunning landscapes and celebrating the diverse cultures of the region. Famed for his rock roots with Genesis, and through his extensive solo catalogue, Hackett demonstrates the exquisite beauty of the nylon guitar at times venturing into the exotic ethnic and often supported by dazzling orchestral arrangements.  "A lot of acoustic ideas had been forming over the years, and it felt like the perfect time to create this album," notes Hackett, "a time to contemplate the places we've visited around the Mediterranean with the kind of music which evolved from the world of imagination.  Because we can't really travel substantially at the moment, I hope that the album will take people on that journey. Whether you sit down and listen to it or drift off to it with a glass of wine..."

Curved Air/Albums 1970-1973 [Remastered] ....import 4 CD Set $45.99

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a new clamshell boxed set featuring all four of Curved Air's classic albums recorded between 1970 and 1973. "The Albums" features newly remastered versions of "Air Conditioning," "Second Album," "Phantasmagoria" and "Air Cut," along with bonus tracks 'It Happened Today' (single version), 'What Happens When You Blow Yourself Up' and 'Sarah's Concern,' all originally issued as singles. Originally issued on the Warner Bros. Label in November 1970, "Air Conditioning" showcased the highly innovative talents of Sonja Kristina (vocals), ex-Royal College of Music student Darryl Way (violin), former Royal Academy of Music student Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesiser), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums). Taking their name from the album "A Rainbow in Curved Air" by American composer Terry Riley, Curved Air's debut album perfectly demonstrated the band's innovative musical approach, blending classical, electronic and folk music influences in their work and featuring Sonja Kristina's sublime vocals. Featuring such classic tracks as 'It Happened Today,' 'Propositions,' 'Vivaldi' and 'Situations,' "Air Conditioning" was a Top Ten hit in the UK and firmly established Curved Air as one of Britain's foremost progressive bands. "Second Album," released in 1971, featured a line-up of Sonja Kristina (vocals, acoustic guitar), Darryl Way (violin, piano), Francis Monkman (guitar, keyboards, VCS3), Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums) and new member Ian Eyre (bass). The album included the classic hit single 'Back Street Luv' along with such classic tracks as 'Young Mother,' 'Jumbo,' 'Puppets,' 'Everdance' and 'Piece of Mind' and was an acclaimed hit album in the UK and Europe. The 1972 album "Phantasmagoria" saw another change of line-up, with Mike Wedgwood replacing Ian Eyre and featured such classic tracks as 'Marie Antoinette,' the album title track and 'Melinda (More or Less).' Curved Air's final album for Warner Bros. was the 1973 release, "Air Cut," which saw the departure of Darryl Way, Francis Monkman and Florian Pilkington-Miksa. Eddie Jobson joined on violin and keyboards, whilst Kirby Gregory was recruited on guitar and Jim Russell on drums. Perhaps one of Curved Air's most progressive albums, "Air Cut" featured some outstanding compositions such as 'The Purple Speed Queen' and the ten-minute epic 'Metamorphosis.' "The Albums 1970 - 1973" has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and is a fine collection of music by one Britain's foremost pioneering progressive rock bands of the 1970s.

Edgar Broughton Band/Speak Down the Wires - The Recordings 1975-1982 ....import 4CD Box Set $45.99

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of Speak Down the Wires, a re-mastered four-disc clamshell box set of the four albums issued by the Edgar Broughton Band / The Broughtons between 1975 and 1982: "Bandages," "Live Hits Harder!," "Parlez Vous English" and "Superchip: The Final Silicon Solution." From the release of their debut album for EMI's Harvest label in 1969, "Wasa Wasa," the Edgar Broughton Band were trail blazers for the counterculture and rock music with a social conscience and could even be seen as godfathers and influencers of the later Punk movement. Hailing from Warwick and featuring Edgar Broughton (guitars, vocals), Steve Broughton (drums, vocals) and Arthur Grant (bass, vocals), their hard hitting approach over a series of albums for the Harvest label earned them many loyal fans and several hit singles (including their anthem 'Out Demons Out!'). In 1973 the band departed Harvest and would record a further four albums, all released on independent labels between 1975 and 1982. "Bandages" was the first of these records and was born of a time when the band was bedevilled with management problems. Recorded in the summer of 1975 in Oslo, the band was joined by new member John Thomas on guitar and was later mixed by the band and Mike Oldfield at his home studio, "Bandages" was a fine record and featured Mike guesting on the tracks 'Speak Down the Wires,' 'The Whale' and 'Fruhling Flowers.' Despite the acclaim for "Bandages," by 1976 the band had decided to take a break and embarked on a "farewell" European tour with the addition of another guitarist to the band, Terry Cottam. Several UK shows were recorded by the RAK Mobile studio and the highlights were eventually released in 1979 as the "Live Hits Harder!" album. By the time of this release the band had already entered the studio with a new line-up featuring Edgar and Steve Broughton, Arthur Grant joined by Pete Tolson (guitars), Richard de Bastion (keyboards, backing vocals) and Tom Norden (guitars, backing vocals) to record the excellent album "Parlez Vous English." This record was produced by the band assisted by John Leckie and Simon Heyworth and saw the band shorten their name to The Broughtons. "Parlez Vous English" took on new wave and art rock influences and, with highlights such as 'All I Want to Be' (also a single), 'Anthem,' 'Revelations One' and 'April in England,' was arguably the most polished of all the albums recorded by the band. Following a promotional tour in 1980, the Edgar Broughton Band took the step of forming their own label for their next release in 1982, the conceptual album "Superchip: The Final Silicon Solution." The record saw the band revert to a trio and adopt the use of keyboards more extensively and the album's dystopian message is perhaps more pertinent today than when it was first issued. Speak Down the Wires - The Recordings 1975 - 1982 is a fine collection of music and tells an often overlooked chapter of the later musical legacy of one of Britain's most genuine bands.

Transatlantic - the Prog Supergroup of Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy, Roine Stolt & Pete Trewavas are pleased to announce their fifth studio album 'The Absolute Universe,' set for release in February. Representing the band's first new music since 2014's 'Kaleidoscope,' with 'The Absolute Universe' the band have done something unique and created two versions of the record: 'The Absolute Universe: The Breath of Life (Abridged Version)' & 'The Absolute Universe: Forevermore (Extended Version).'  As Mike Portnoy explains: "We've got two versions of this album. There is a two CD presentation, which is 90 minutes long, and a single one - that's 60 minutes. However, the single CD is NOT merely an edited version of the double CD. They each contain alternate versions and even in some cases, new recordings. We wrote fresh lyrics and have different people singing on the single CD version tracks as compared to those on the double CD. Some of the song titles have also been changed, while others might remain the same, but compositionally what you'll hear has been altered. You must appreciate that what we have done is unique. We revamped the songs to make the two versions different." Pete Trewavas adds: "We did write some new music for the single CD, what's more, there are also differences in the instruments used on some of the tracks across the two records."

Byzantium/Halfway Dreaming – Anthology 1969-75 ....import 5 CD Box Set $45.99

Evolving from the line-up that had recorded the highly-regarded Ora LP in 1969, Byzantium recorded two early seventies albums - 'Byzantium' and 'Seasons Changing,' both featuring future Ian Dury music director Chaz Jankel - for the A&M label. After leaving A&M, the band self-financed the 1974 'Live/Studio' album in an effort to attract new representation before splitting the following year. Although they received relatively little attention from the music industry at the time, Byzantium's progressive rock-based combination of musical eclecticism, strong harmonies and timeless song writing have belatedly attracted an audience, with collectors now paying significant sums to acquire original vinyl pressings of their recordings. Assembled with the help and approval of the band, Halfway Dreaming: Anthology 1969-75 is the first-ever Byzantium compilation. It includes all three albums that were released at the time, together with a further set of 1974/75-era live material, various studio out-takes and, as a considerable bonus, an extended version of the Ora album. Housed in a stylish clamshell box, this essential 5-CD package features a lavish 32-page booklet containing a new 4000 word essay on the band and numerous previously unpublished photos. It's the definitive document of a band who fell through the cracks at the time but have subsequently come to be regarded by many as an integral part of the early seventies British underground scene.

Conrad Schnitzler/Paracon (The Paragon Session Outtakes 1978-1979) ....import CD $18.99

These entirely instrumental recordings were created in the late 1970s at Peter Baumann's Paragon Studio. This stellar period gave rise to the finest works: the Con, Consequenz and Con 3 albums, featuring such wonderful pieces as Fata Morgana, Coca and Auf dem schwarzen Kanal. These recently discovered pieces take the aforementioned albums a stage further. Sounds complement each other as they are reprised, whilst continuing to exist in their own cosmos. As you listen, you feel as if you have been transported back into the studio itself while the sessions are happening. Wolfgang Seidel, co-author of these pieces, has opened up his archive of recordings to the Bureau B label. He and Conrad Schnitzler spent many years together experimenting with sound, capturing the results on the two Consequenz albums, amongst others. Schnitzler is electronica in its purest sense. He succeeds in rendering the unconscious audible. This goes far beyond "music to listen to," it is music which works on different levels, music to move you.

Special guests include Jeff Buckley, Alan Vega (Suicide), David Johansen (NY Dolls), Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads), Ernie Brooks (Modern Lovers), Billy Ficca (Television), Nona Hendryx (Labelle), Chinese star Feifei Yang, French diva Elli Medeiros, avant-legend Mary Margaret O'Hara, Cuba's #1 dance band Los Van Van, UK dub-master Adrian Sherwood, singer Rolo McGinty (The Woodentops) and others.

Black Sabbath/VOL 4 [Super Deluxe Edition] ....4 CD Box Set $57.99

Black Sabbath/VOL 4 [Super Deluxe Edition] ....4 CD Box Set $57.99

Black Sabbath unleashed the group's fourth album in two years in 1972 with Vol 4. Stacked with classic tracks like "Supernaut," "Changes," and "Snowblind," the record harnessed the group's surging popularity to reach the Top 10 on the Albums Chart in the U.K. and the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S., on its path to being certified platinum by the RIAA.  The innovators of heavy metal revisit Vol 4 on a new collection that includes a newly remastered version of the original album along with a trove of 20 unreleased studio and live recordings and comes with extensive booklets featuring liner notes with quotes from the era from all four band members, rare photos, and a poster with previously unpublished early artwork of the album using the working title Snowblind.  Bolstered by a fresh remastering, Vol 4's ambitious arrangements and complex grooves have never sounded more inspired and menacing. Originally released in September 1972, the album marked two major changes for the members of Sabbath: Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward. While their previous albums - Black Sabbath, Paranoid, and Master of Reality - were produced by Rodger Bain and recorded in England, they instead chose to produce Vol 4 themselves and record it at the Record Plant in Los Angeles.  The generous addition of bonus material on VOL 4: Super Deluxe Edition begins with six previously unreleased studio outtakes from the original sessions for the album. Each one has been newly mixed by Steven Wilson using the analog multi-tracks. Highlights include outtakes for "Supernaut" and "Changes," as well an instrumental version of "Under the Sun."   The set also features 11 additional studio recordings (also newly mixed by Wilson from the analog multi-tracks) that spotlight alternative takes, false starts and snippets of studio dialogue. These tracks transport listeners into the studio with the band and offer some insight into the making of the album. Along with several alternative takes for "Wheels of Confusion," these recordings also include outtakes for "The Straightener" and "Snowblind."  The collection concludes with a searing collection of live performances that re-create a typical setlist from Black Sabbath's tour for Vol 4. Recorded in March 1973 at various stops along the band's U.K. tour. The recordings were originally slated for a live album that was ultimately shelved. Although some of these performances have been previously available in various states, the release marks the first time that a full 1973 live Sabbath show has been recreated. The live audio has been newly mixed by Richard Digby Smith using the original 16-track analog tapes to achieve a level of fidelity not heard on any previous incarnations.

Snowy White & The White Flames/Something on Me ....CD $15.99

Snowy White & The White Flames/Something on Me ....CD $15.99

Snowy White is one of a handful of classic blues-orientated British electric guitar players - musicians whose sound, technique and style has echoed the originality of the blues with the excitement of contemporary rock. He has developed his own style of 'English' blues, a combination of clear, clean blues phrases and harder-edged riffs that are a recognisable feature of his very personal songs. In the Autumn of 1976 he was invited to tour America and Europe with Pink Floyd as their first augmenting musician, a gig which took up most of his time throughout 1977. In 1979, Peter Green decided to head for the studio once more and invited Snowy and his band along to jam. The result was the album entitled 'In the Skies,' now something of a collector's item. He was then asked by Pink Floyd to go to America to rehearse their new show entitled 'The Wall,' and, at the same time, the rock band Thin Lizzy invited him to become a full-time member. Snowy stayed with the band for nearly three years of touring, recording 'Chinatown' and 'Renegade' with them in 1982, before leaving to pursue his solo career. Snowy's first solo album was entitled 'White Flames.' This album included the timeless 'Bird of Paradise,' written by Snowy, which became a hit single around the world. Every year from 1999 to 2014 Snowy toured the world with Roger Waters, including the 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' and massive 'The Wall' tour. In between tours, he founded the Snowy White Blues Project, recording the albums 'In Our Time of Living' and 'In Our Time... Live.' Snowy's most recent album, 'The Situation' came out in 2018. His latest offering, 'Something on Me,' features Thomas White on drums, Rowan Bassett on bass and appearances by various The White Flames members.

Electric Hot Tuna/Trilogy ....import 3 CD Set $23.99

Electric Hot Tuna/Trilogy ....import 3 CD Set $23.99

Hot Tuna is an American blues band formed in 1969 by guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady during a break from Jefferson Airplane while Grace Slick was recovering from throat surgery. The band played several shows around San Francisco before Jefferson Airplane resumed. Their early repertoire was derived mainly from Airplane material and covers of American country and blues artists. The band's name came from someone Kaukonen refers to as a "witty wag" who called out "hot tuna" after hearing the line 'What's that smell like fish, oh baby,' from the song "Keep on Truckin.'"  This selection features the band's first two albums "Hot Tuna" and "First Pull Up, Then Pull Down" released on RCA and the later "Double Dose" live album recorded at Theatre 1839, San Francisco and released in 1977 on Jefferson Airplane's own Grunt label.

Allen Ravenstine/Electron Music ....CD $12.99                Allen Ravenstine/Shore Leave ....CD $12.99

Electron Music and Shore Leave are new CD-EPs by former Pere Ubu synthesist and electronic music trailblazer, Allen Ravenstine, bringing together five of the prodigious composer's most recent abstract compositions collectively comprised of the sounds of analog and digital synthesizers, traditional acoustic instruments and the sampled sounds of birds, dogs and other artifacts of nature. It's a heady, disparate brew of compositions that range from abstract to lyrical, in the process conjuring up a bricolage of ambient soundtracks, jazzy miniatures, space-age exploration, world music, Erik Satie-like studies and the ghost of Harry Partch.

John Zorn/Gnosis: The Inner Light ....CD $18.99

John Zorn/Gnosis: The Inner Light ....CD $18.99

A sublime and transcendent memorial to one of Zorn's earliest mentors-Ennio Morricone. Featuring the soulful guitar of Bill Frisell set within the magical sonorities of vibraphone, harp and bells the music takes on an epic orchestral sweep with the added presence of special guest keyboard wizard John Medeski on organ and piano. Filled with beautiful harmonies, a driving rhythmic pulse and stunning lyri-cism, this is some of the most lush and spiritual music Zorn has ever written. Truly music of the Angels-intimate chamber music to heal an aching heart performed by one of the world's most ethereal ensembles.

Erik Wollo/Recurrence ....CD $15.99

Erik Wollo/Recurrence ....CD $15.99

Following his acclaimed 2020 collaboration with American synthesist Michael Stearns (Convergence) renowned Norwegian ambient / electronic artist Erik Wollo returns with 2021's Recurrence. An intensely detailed fusion of elegant compositions and deep atmospherics, it's a gleaming sonic journey - a timeless dreamlike pilgrimage revisiting the sound and feel of past moments with an essence of eternal renewal.  Delicately evocative synthesizer atmospheres are skillfully balanced with pulsating rhythmic passages. Wollo's trademark processed electric guitars, synthesizers, and percussion create a cohesive structure that bonds the pieces into a warm, breathing continuum. Conceived to unfold as one unit, the tracks are movements drawing the listener into a deep, adventurous flow. Recurrence highlights Wollo's extraordinary luminous mastery. With elements reminiscent of previous releases like Gateway and Different Places it also sees impulses from Wollo's renowned collaborations with electronic music pioneers Steve Roach and Michael Stearns. Emotional and filled with sonic imagery, Recurrence will entice the listener to repeated listens.

Norma Tanega/Walkin' My Cat Named Dog [Remastered Expanded Version] ....CD $18.99

Norma Tanega/Walkin' My Cat Named Dog [Remastered Expanded Version] ....CD $18.99

Now, here's a cult classic album long overdue for a proper CD reissue! Norma Tanega was discovered while singing to Catskill summer campers by producer Herb Bernstein, who brought her to Four Seasons songwriter Bob Crewe. Crewe signed her to his New Voice label, and success was instantaneous: the title song to Walkin' My Cat Named Dog went to #22 on the charts. But, despite the album's folk-pop trappings, Norma Tanega was not an artist destined to stay at the top of the charts for long; her voice was unconventional, and her songs were too idiosyncratic, not sticking to typical song structure or even meter (for example, 'No Stranger Am I' is set to a 5/4 time signature). In fact, Tanega's songs were so unusual that she had to hire session musicians to play them on the North American tour she took to support the album instead of her erstwhile back-up band The Outsiders! Upon returning, she then embarked on a British tour that was to change her life forever; there she met Dusty Springfield, and the two embarked on an artistic and romantic relationship that prompted Tanega to move to London for five years. After the pair broke up, Tanega wound up moving to California and shifted to playing percussion in more experimental settings, following the wayward muse that makes Walkin' My Cat Named Dog such an entrancing and unique listening experience to this day (in fact, the FX show What We Do in the Shadows uses 'You're Dead' for its theme song!) The previous CD release of this album came out in the late '90s and suffered from indifferent sound and packaging, not even showing the original album cover.  Our Expanded and Remastered Edition adds two non-LP sides ('Bread' and 'Run, on the Run') to present Norma's complete New Voice recordings, all beautifully remastered (from hi-res digital files) by Mike Milchner of SonicVision and annotated by Richie Unterberger with added photos. A long-overdue digital tribute to the late, great Norma Tanega!
