Two Heads Are Better Than One - Bond And Brown

Two Heads Are Better Than One
Bringing together the raw jazz, rock and blues talent of Graham Bond with Cream and Jack Bruce lyricist Pete Brown. Graham Bond was at the vanguard of 60s British musicians pioneering fusions of jazz, r'n'b and the newly emerging rock sensibility, most notably in his own seminal Graham Bond Organisation, which included the likes of Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce, Dick Heckstall-Smith and, briefly, John McLaughlin. Pete Brown composed lyrics for some of the most classic songs of the 60'sfor Cream including White Room and Sunshine of Your Love as well as inspirational beat poetry . After the demise of Brown'sband Piblokto (also highly regarded in rock circles), Bond and Brown came together. A fusion of jazz, rock and Afro influences they created a truly unique album that was to prove Graham Bond'sfinal recorded work before his tragic death in 1974. Featuring a wealth of bonus material, this welcome reissue is a tribute to Graham Bond'slegacy and the enduring talent of Pete Brown.

Contrasts

Esoteric Recordings is pleased to release this new remastered edition of the classic Psych / Progressive album Contrasts by Blonde On Blonde.

Formed in 1967, the group signed to Pye Records the following year, following a series of legendary appearances at the Middle Earth club and a support slot for Jefferson Airplane on their first UK tour. The single All Day, All Night released in November 1968 was to become a sought after classic of the genre.

The band’s 1969 debut album was an equally fine work with many classic tracks such as Ride With Captain Max.

With original vinyl copies now reaching astronomical sums among collectors, this reissue is most welcome. This edition fully restores the original album artwork and adds both sides of the bands first single as bonus tracks.
