Move Closer: Expanded Edition
•    PHYLLIS NELSON was an American R&B/Dance singer and songwriter from Gary, Indiana who found fame in the UK in the 1980's after recording and performing predominantly disco and dance music with modest success since the mid 1970's. Nelson first hit the charts in 1980 when her single ‘Stop The Rain’ reached #20 on Billboard's disco chart.

•    Inspired by her relationship with her husband, Nelson made a departure from her usual dance orientated material and penned a ballad, ‘Move Closer,’ which became the opening track and title of her debut album on Carrere Records. Released in the UK and Europe the album provided an immediate change in fortune for the versatile vocalist.

•    Released in 1984, MOVE CLOSER, which peaked at #29 on the UK album charts, is a soul record of broad scope with varying styles and boasts two beautiful ballads penned by the maturing vocalist herself. Also first released as a single in 1984, the dynamic and sensitively sung opening track, describing the frustration of being apart from your lover, was championed by a London radio DJ who set the track on a slow burn up the UK singles charts. ‘Move Closer’ reached the summit after 11 weeks, spent 6 months on the chart and made history as the first UK #1 single to be both written and performed by a black female artist.

•    MOVE CLOSER also includes single ‘Stop Don't Do This To Me,’ a slick, minimal R&B groove, and the sweet soul ballad ‘Happy To See You,’ the second track written by Nelson.

•    BBR is very proud to present MOVE CLOSER, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks. Essential listening for all R&B, Soul, Disco, Dance and Pop fans.

Reaffirmation: An Anthology 1971-1973 2CD
•    A NEW REMASTERED TWO CD ANTHOLOGY BY HELP YOURSELF
•    FEATURING TRACKS FROM EVERY ALBUM ISSUED BY UNITED ARTISTS AND A RARE SINGLE
•    BOOKLET WITH NEW ESSAY BY MICHAEL HEATLEY

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of "Reaffirmation”, a comprehensive anthology by the unsung heroes of British early 70s rock, HELP YOURSELF. Help Yourself was formed in London in 1970, originally as a backing band for singer-songwriter MALCOLM MORLEY and took their influences from American West Coast Country and Acid Rock. After Morley signed to the Famepushers management stable, his manager John Eichler suggested Morley form a new band and HELP YOURSELF was born. Featuring Malcolm Morley (guitars, keyboards, vocals), former Sam Apple Pie member Dave Charles (drums, percussion, vocals), Richard Treece (guitars, vocals, harmonica) and Ken Whaley (bass), the band signed to United Artists in 1970 and their eponymous debut album was issued in 1971.

Following a tour with label mates Brinsley Schwarz and Ernie Graham (also Famepushers artists), Ken Whaley departed the band. An expanded line-up including Ernie Graham and Jonathan Glemser began work on the album "Strange Affair” in 1972, but Graham and Glemser’s departure half-way through the recording saw roadie Paul Burton join the band to complete the album, (which would include the excellent extended track ‘The All Electric Fur Trapper’). The band embarked on a tour of Switzerland with Welsh rock legends Man and a bond formed between the two groups. The band’s "Beware the Shadow” was an even stronger effort, featuring the Help’s twelve-minute anthem, ‘Reaffirmation’, a track that displayed the instrumental excellence of the group. Prior to a tour to promote their most recent album Malcolm Morley fell ill with depression and Deke Leonard, recently dismissed from Man, took his place. When Morley recovered, Leonard remained with the band, appearing with them on the "Christmas at the Patti” concert in December 1972. In early 1973 Deke Leonard departed the band to pursue a solo career and the band began work on the album "Happy Days”, a record that also featured The Flying Aces and Vivian "Spiv’ Morris. Paul Burton’s departure during these sessions saw Ken Whaley return to the band. Work then commenced on another album, "the Return of Ken Whaley”. Both albums were released as a package by United Artists later that year. Although critically acclaimed, commercial success continued to elude the band and in August 1973 Help Yourself disbanded, with Malcolm Morley and Ken Whaley joining Man in 1974 for their album "Winos, Rhinos and Lunatics”.

Forty years on, HELP YOURSELF is now regarded as one of the great, unsung British bands of their era. This anthology gathers together the essential tracks from all of their albums released by United Artists, newly re-mastered from the original master tapes. It features a booklet with essay by Michael Heatley and is a tribute to their genius.

NB: This title is released July 28 and will not be dispatched before this date.
