Skyscraping: Expanded Edition - ABC

Skyscraping: Expanded Edition

· ABC has its roots in the band Vice Versa, a Sheffield band formed in 1977 by Stephen Singleton and Mark White. They founded their own label, Neutron Records, releasing the EP Music 4. Martin Fry, who wrote the fanzine Modern Drugs, interviewed Vice Versa and shortly afterwards they asked him to join as synthesizer player. Fry accepted and by 1980 the band had evolved into ABC, with Fry becoming lead vocalist.

· The album was released in 1997, as a homage to lead singer Martin Fry's several musical heroes, including David Bowie, Roxy Music and The Sex Pistols.

· The line-up of ABC then consisting of Martin Fry, Glenn Gregory of Heaven 17 and Keith Lowndes, the album was met with positive reviews from critics rather than broad commercial success.

· This re-issue - done in conjunction with the band -contains liner notes by Daryl Easlea who talked extensively to the members of the band about the creation of the record.

· It contains a newly re-mastered album as well as a disc of B-Sides from the singles released at the time.

Stephen went on to form the band Tin Tin with Mulligan and Dik Davies of Fashion, Andy "Stoker" Growcott of Dexys Midnight Runners and producer Bob Lamb. They released the first version of Kiss Me through Sire Records, topping the U.S. club charts in 1982 with the band headlining gigs in New York with support from fellow label artist Madonna. Stephen went solo in 1983, releasing this, his debut album in 1985 which was the first of a string of successful solo albums using his trademark smooth vocals and catchy melodies.

Whatever Turns You On
Esoteric Recordings are proud to release this classic rock album from 1973, the second by the amazing power trio, West Bruce & Laing. Forming in 1972 the band brought together Cream bassist, vocalist and writer Jack Bruce with Leslie West and Corky Laing from the American band Mountain. Together WBL recorded three albums, all of which demonstrated the group's power and dexterity. Following the release of their debut, 'Why Doncha?' for CBS records in Europe, the band moved to RSO Records to record this, their last studio album which featured such classics as ‘Scotch Krotch'. Alas, the band only lasted some eighteen months before breaking apart. This Esoteric release, re-mastered from the original tapes, follows on the heels of the label's critically acclaimed 6 CD set Jack Bruce retrospective 'Can You Follow?' and is indeed a welcome one for all fans of classic rock!
