Glass Top Coffin - Ramases

Glass Top Coffin
Released on 22/02/10. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of Glass Top Coffin, the second album by Ramases, the duo of Ramases (Martin Raphael) and his wife Sel. The duo first came to prominence with the release of the album Space Hymns on the Vertigo label in 1971. The Glass Top Coffin project took several years to write, and Ramases vision of an inter-galactic concept finally appeared on Vertigo in 1975 in an elaborate sleeve. The sessions saw contributions from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra and was arguably the most fully realised of the two Ramases albums.

Mercator Projected
A milestone in the birth of 'progressive' rock, East of Eden's debut album, 'Mercator Projected' has been cited by Mojo magazine as a minor masterpiece. Released on the legendary Deram label in 1969, the album established East of Eden as a major act, particularly in France, where the band had several Top Ten singles and major album success. An imaginative fusion of jazz, psychedelia and world music, 'Mercator Projected' has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and features twenty minutes of bonus material, including previously unreleased extended demo versions of ‘Waterways' and ‘In The Stable of the Sphynx' and East of Eden's take on The Byrds' classic ‘Eight Miles High'. All original artwork has been restored and the booklet features many unseen photographs and memorabilia. Our Price: £10.95

Snafu
East of Eden's second album, 'Snafu' was originally released in 1970 by Deram Records and saw the band take their particular fusion of jazz, psychedelia, world music and even blue beat, one step further. As ever, the instrumental prowess of Dave Arbus on violin dominated the music, leading eventually to Arbus playing the infamous violin solo on 'Baba O'Reilly' by The Who. 'Snafu' was the result of many months in the studio, before being shelved in favour of starting work on a fresh project. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and features many unreleased bonus tracks, including five previously unreleased tracks from the aborted album sessions and alternate demo and single versions of their 1971 hit, 'Jig-A-Jig'. An extensive essay features interviews and previously unseen photographs. Our Price: £10.95

Fat Mattress – Expanded Edition
Released 29/06/09. Recorded in 1969, 'Fat Mattress' was the eponymous debut album by the band formed by Jimi Hendrix Experience bass guitarist Noel Redding. Recorded in late 1968 / early 1969, the album evoked the influences of the time, touching upon styles pioneered by groups such as Traffic (whose member Chris Wood guested on the record). A superb piece of Psychedelic rock in its own right, 'Fat Mattress' failed to get the attention it deserved at the time of release (despite a tour as support act to the Hendrix Experience) but has subsequently been hailed as a classic of the era. This Esoteric reissue has eight bonus tracks comprising non-album singles, mono mixes, studio out-takes and an unreleased solo single by FAT MATTRESS' Jim Leverton. Our Price: £10.95
