The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980-1981 - Any Trouble

The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980-1981

· Fronted by Mancunian singer-songwriter Clive Gregson, Crewe-based band Any Trouble were signed to Stiff Records in 1980 and touted by the music press as the next Elvis Costello & The Attractions.

 

· Any Trouble’s debut album Where Are All The Nice Girls was critically acclaimed at the time. The band followed with a second studio album, Wheels In Motion (1981). Stiff also circulated a promotional in-concert album, Live At The Venue, which only enjoyed a commercial release in Germany. The band then signed with EMI America before disbanding at the end of 1984.

 

· Compiled with help from Clive Gregson and boasting the involvement of all the band members, this definitive collection offers the band’s complete Stiff recordings, as a comprehensive ‘Early Years’ package of the band’s musical history across 1980 and 1981.

 

· In addition to the three albums, the package also includes myriad non-album A-sides and B-sides, including their pre-Stiff debut single ‘Yesterday’s Girls’. Many of these tracks are extremely hard-to-find on CD now and Live At The Venue makes its CD debut (apart from a German CD reissue on Line in 1988).

 

· Clive Gregson later launched a productive collaboration with Christine Collister. In 2007, Any Trouble reunited with a brand new album and Clive continues to enjoy critical and creative success as a singer-songwriter to this day, releasing his thirteenth solo album This Is Now in May 2013.

Alone Together
One time Kim Fowley protégé, one time Spencer Davis guitar tech Dave Mason was a key and founder member of psych/pop/funk/soul/fusion legends Traffic. The writer of many of the band's early classics including the timeless and much-covered Feelin Alright? Mason was the first to leave due to the classic 'musical differences. Moving to the US, his first solo album was one of the many recordings to come out of the Leon Russell/Delaney & Bonnie axis in1969/1970. Alone Together contains excellent, tightly constructed pop songs, redolent of his singles for Traffic, albeit extended in the then new style, built on a fat bed of acoustic guitars with tasteful electric guitar accents. Mason's vocals are embellished with harmonies from Rita Coolidge, Claudia Lennear and Delaney & Bonnie. Besides the hit Only You Know and I Know , (also a hit for Delaney & Bonnie) highlights include the bouncy gospel-inflected Waitin' On You and the banjo-bejeweled Just a Song . Look at You Look at Me and the wonderfully wah-wahed Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave are reminiscent of Traffic, whose drummer, Jim Capaldi is among the all-star cast assembled here.

Fields
FIRST EVER OFFICIAL UK CD RELEASE FOR THIS CLASSIC ALBUM FROM 1971 BY RARE BIRD

FOUNDER GRAHAM FIELD’s BAND   REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES Includes

BOOKLET WITH RESTORED ARTWORK, PHOTOS & LINER NOTES with GRAHAM FIELD INTERVIEW

REVIEWS IN "UNCUT”, "MOJO”, "RECORD COLLECTOR” & "CLASSIC ROCK” MAGAZINES

COVERAGE ON RELEVANT WEBSITES & FANZINES    

ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to issue the first ever OFFICIAL UK CD edition of the self titled album by FIELDS. When the first line-up of RARE BIRD folded in early 1971, keyboard player GRAHAM FIELD formed this outfit with bass player, vocalist and guitarist ALAN BARRY and KING CRIMSON drummer ANDY McCULLOCH.   Although the band failed to emulate the commercial success of FIELD’s previous group, the sole album they recorded was a magnificent example of British Progressive Rock.   Much sought after for many years, this official ESOTERIC CD edition has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an essay by Sid Smith and interview with Graham Field.

Original Albums Boxset (4CD)
Originally signed to Cherry Red in 1981, Eyeless in Gaza moved very quickly through four albums of skewed free-pop explorations to become the intriguing, uncomfortable cousin of the brash new wave sound finding its way into the mainstream at the time.

Picture a place where scratchy guitars, synthesisers, primitive rhythms, found sounds, technical experimentation and neo-noise come together to provide a bed for the poetic, exploratory lyrics of Martyn Bates. Oblique, anxious, difficult in places and beautifully detached, their sound captured perfectly the beauty to be found if one cared to rummage through the rubble of a Britain in the midst of industrial collapse.

Produced with the approval and involvement of the band, and spread across 4CDs presented in a hard clamshell case, this set captures Eyeless In Gaza’s first four albums, along with a band compiled set of non-album essentials and oddities and a sleevenote by Martyn Bates.

•    Four albums originally released in 1981-1982

•    Singles and rarities collection

•    LP replica wallets

•    Band sleevenotes

•    69 tracks

A classic part of the early Cherry Red catalogue, Eyeless In Gaza continue to be influential today and are often namechecked as a key influence by artists from across the musical spectrum.

N.B. This album is released August 25 and will not be dispatched before this date.

See The Fire: Albums, Singles and BBC Recordings 1982-1987
Characterised by heavy drum machine patterns and cut-throat, droning guitars, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry (The Lorries to their friends) arrived on the newly developing Goth rock scene in 1981 and immediately became indie chart regulars and fan favourites.

Between 1982 and 1987 the band cut two albums and a dozen singles for Red Rhino records, all of which breached the Independent Chart’s Top Twenty. Three BBC sessions (two for the legendary John Peel) were also squeezed into this period, and all of that material, including b-sides, a 7” given away with one of those albums and a song only ever recorded for the BBC, is included here.

➢    Packed with indie chart hits – two top five albums and countless top twenty singles

➢    53 tracks across 3CD

➢    Includes eleven previously unheard BBC recordings and one song unavailable elsewhere

➢    Booklet includes sleeve shots, track source information, and sleevenotes by the excellent Mick Mercer

A must have for any fan of the Goth movement, or its accompanying dark and heavy sub-genres.

The Lorries remain active today, and their legacy and reputation continues to grow.

Please Note: This title is released November 24 and will not be dispatched before this date.
