Whatever Turns You On
Esoteric Recordings are proud to release this classic rock album from 1973, the second by the amazing power trio, West Bruce & Laing. Forming in 1972 the band brought together Cream bassist, vocalist and writer Jack Bruce with Leslie West and Corky Laing from the American band Mountain. Together WBL recorded three albums, all of which demonstrated the group's power and dexterity. Following the release of their debut, 'Why Doncha?' for CBS records in Europe, the band moved to RSO Records to record this, their last studio album which featured such classics as ‘Scotch Krotch'. Alas, the band only lasted some eighteen months before breaking apart. This Esoteric release, re-mastered from the original tapes, follows on the heels of the label's critically acclaimed 6 CD set Jack Bruce retrospective 'Can You Follow?' and is indeed a welcome one for all fans of classic rock!

In From The Cold
Led by future Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Weston, Ashkan were together for only a matter of months before imploding.

However, they did leave behind a small but perfectly-formed legacy in the shape of In From The Cold, a blistering, 52-minute slab of turn-of-the-decade British psychedelic / progressive blues rock that, in January 1970, became the first release on Decca's new underground label Decca Nova.

With Weston's frenzied, proto-metal guitar heroics matched all the way by Steve Bailey s powerful, Spooky Tooth-style lead vocals, the album received encouraging reviews, only for the band to split on the eve of its release. Now a major collectable, In From The Cold has been heavily bootlegged over the last couple of decades, but now receives a long-overdue, first-ever official reissue.

All together now
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the legendary third album by ARGENT, "All Together Now”. The album was issued in July 1972 and built upon the success of the band’s preceding works "ARGENT” and "RING OF HANDS”.

"All Together Now” featured the band’s biggest hit ‘HOLD YOUR HEAD UP’ and saw ROD ARGENT (keyboards, vocals), RUSS BALLARD (guitar, piano, vocals), JIM RODFORD (bass, guitar, vocals) and ROBERT HENRIT (drums, percussion) enjoy global success.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly remastered from the original master tapes, includes one bonus track and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

Press:-

"The strong turnover of third album All Together Now owed much to the inclusion of Hold Your Head Up, a Top Five hit and future staple of every classic rock station worth its license". Rob Hughes - Classic Rock (Summer 2012)

"The perfect balance between Rod’s prog and Russ’s pop.” Geoff Barton (Prog, June 2012)
