Bluebell Wood
Big Sleep were a Welsh band whose influence was far beyond their sole album offering released in 1971. The band members (formerly with Eyes of Blue) would all soon head for greater things in bands such as Gentle Giant, Man and Wild Turkey (formed by ex-Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick). An album that features many fine songs and styles, "Bluebell Wood", (originally released on the highly collectable Pegasus label), has been sought after by collectors for many years thanks to its influence and place in the history of British progressive rock and in the annals of Welsh rock. Re-mastered from the original master tapes, "Bluebell Wood" has never sounded so good. This release is sure to appeal to followers of Man and Gentle Giant in particular. The First ever- official CD release for this classic album - now 24-bit re-mastered. Our Price: £10.95

Quantum Jump: Expanded and Remastered Edition
•    NEW REMASTERED EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC 1976 ALBUM BY QUANTUM JUMP (Featuring RUPERT HINE)
•    FEATURES THE HIT SINGLE "THE LONE RANGER”
•    WITH FIVE BONUS TRACKS
•    REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES
•    FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND NEW LINER NOTES

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1976 debut album by QUANTUM JUMP.

The band came together at Farmyard studios in Buckinghamshire in 1974 and comprised RUPERT HINE (Vocals, Keyboards), former Caravan member JOHN G. PERRY (Bass, Vocals), MARK WARNER (guitar) and former Peddlers member TREVOR MORAIS (drums).

The band’s self-titled debut album was written and recorded at Farmyard studios throughout 1975 and was eventually released on the Electric Records label in 1976 to critical acclaim. Stylistically the album featured a unique fusion of jazz and rock, displaying the excellent musicianship of the band members, along with a healthy sense of humour. The album featured outstanding tracks such as ‘No American Starship’, ‘Something at the Bottom of the Sea’ and perhaps the band’s most famous track ‘The Lone Ranger’ (originally issued as a single in 1976 and after considerable airplay was banned by the BBC for its lyrical content). Remixed in 1979 ‘The Lone Ranger’ became a top five UK hit.

Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this reissue includes five rare bonus tracks, taken from a single and the 1979 remix compilation album "Mixing”. It also includes a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

NB: This title is released on October 27, 2014 and will not be dispatched until this date.
