The Mathematician’s Air Display - Pekka Pohjola

The Mathematician’s Air Display
Released on 25/01/10. Esoteric are pleased to continue their series of CD reissues of the catalogue Finnish label Love Records with this classic album from 1977, released in Britain on VIRGIN RECORDS. Pekka Pohjola was bass guitarist in the Finnish Progressive outfit WIGWAM, but departed the band in 1975 to embark on a solo career. Mike Oldfield was a huge admirer of his work to the extent that he produced and performed on Pohjola's third album, The Mathematician's Air Display . The five tracks on the album are a splendid combination of Pohjola's musical vision and Mike Oldfield's unique production and musical skills. Pohjola was later to perform on the Mike Oldfield Exposed tour and album. Never before issued on CD in the UK, this Esoteric release is newly re-mastered and restores the original British album artwork.
