B The Magpie - Pekka Pohjola

B The Magpie
Released on 25/01/10. Pekka Pohjola was bass guitarist in the Finnish Progressive outfit WIGWAM, but departed the band in 1975 to embark on a solo career. In the album B the Magpie he produced a masterwork whose influence would spread globally thanks to a European release by Virgin Records. Among the album's fans was Mike Oldfield who would produce and perform on Pohjola's second album ( The Mathematician's Air Display also released by Esoteric this month) and recruit him to perform on the Exposed tour. A wonderful instrumental work, the album was also notably sampled in recent times by DJ Shadow. This Esoteric reissue has been newly remastered and restores the original UK album artwork.

All Over The Show
Released on 27/09/10. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1979 live album All Over The Show by the underground New Wave Hippy outfit HERE & NOW.

Following their partnership with Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth in Planet Gong, the group recorded their debut album for Charly Records. Embraced by DJ John Peel, Here & Now found favour with both the emerging Punk audience aswell as a more traditional Hippy and Underground following.

The release of Give and Take led to the band undertaking a series of live dates which were recorded for this live album issued in 1979. All Over the Show perfectly captures the mood of Britain in the late 1970s and is long overdue for reappraisal.

Titus Groan
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1978 album by Belgian Progressive Rock legends Machiavel. Signing to EMI’s Harvest label in 1976, the band recorded this, their third album, in 1978. Featuring Mario Guccio (vocals), Jean Paul Devaux (Guitar), Albert Letecheur (keyboards), Roland De Greef(Bass) and Marc Y Saye (Drums), this excellent group sang in English and drew on many influences to create their own brand of Progressive music. Extremely popular in Europe, Machiavel blended power, melody and symphonic touches to create a style uniquely their own. Mechanical Moonbeams is arguably their finest hour, hailed by many as a Mellotron soaked masterpiece. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the master tapes and includes two bonus tracks.

The Alchemist
Released on 29/03/10. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the classic 1973 Progressive rock album The Alchemist by Home. The band featured a line up of Mick Stubbs (guitar, piano, lead vocals), Laurie Wisefield (lead guitar, vocals), Cliff Williams (bass, vocals) and Mick Cook (drums) and had recorded two previous albums in a more conventional style before recording an album cited by many as a lost classic of the Progressive genre. Although critically acclaimed, the album failed to sell in quantities it deserved and Home disbanded the following year. With the addition of guest Jimmy Anderson on Mellotron and Synthesiser, the conceptual work also brought the guitar playing of Laurie Wisefield to the fore, eventually leading to his joining WISHBONEASH soon after the demise of Home Our Price: £10.95
