Samurai - Samurai

Samurai
Samurai' is truly a lost classic of the Progressive era. Released on the short lived Greenwich Gramophone label in 1972, the album was influenced by the experiments of groups such as King Crimson, Gentle Giant et al, but was more than a mere clone of these bands. Evolving from the equally excellent band Web (whose album 'I Spider' is a classic of the genre), the musicianship on the album was excellent and Keyboard player Dave Lawson's compositions were groundbreaking and memorable. Sadly the group disbanded shortly after the release of the record resulting in limited sales. However, the influence of the album was not lost as both Dave Lawson and Tony Reeves soon joined Dave Greenslade to form the group Greenslade, effectively taking up the musical mantle laid down by Samurai. This Esoteric reissue features a booklet with previously unseen photographs and an interview with Dave Lawson.

Forms and Feelings
Love sculpture's classic psychedelic album - now re-mastered from the original tapes & expanded to include original singles & "Mars", removed from the UK edition of the original album in 1969. Dave Edmunds' importance in the history of welsh rock music cannot be understated. In the 70's he became an icon recording for Led Zeppelin's swan song label and working with George Harrison Edmunds' recording career began with the trio love sculpture, revealing Edmunds to be a guitar hero of extreme prowess. After a first single released under the name the human beans the band became love sculpture and recorded "blues helping", a classic album of blues-rock for Emi's Parlophone label. In 1969 the band veered to a more underground direction to record their classic top ten hit 'Sabre Dance', championed by DJ John Peel. The ensuing album (engineered by future yes producer Eddie Offord) was equally stunning. Our Price: £10.95

Photos Of Ghosts Remastered And Expanded Edition
Released on 29/03/10. Premiata Forneria Marconi, better known in English speaking countries as P.F.M. , were arguably the finest Italian Progressive rock band of the 1970 s and certainly one of the most well known. A successful act in their home land, they came to international attention when they signed to EMERSON, LAKE and PALMER s label MANTICORE in 1973, recording the album Photos Of Ghosts the same year. With English lyrics, some penned by ELP and King Crimson lyricist Pete Sinfield (who also produced the album), this edition of PFM s debut album for Manticore has been re-mastered from the analogue tapes and includes previously unreleased six bonus tracks of early mixes from the album sessions, a lavishly illustrated booklet, new essay and fully restored artwork. Our Price: £10.95
