Whatever Turns You On - West, Bruce & Laing

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!

Medusa
Field gte not in Database

A truly Classic Rock album that has stood the test of time. A blend of classic blues based rock music fused with soul, funk and occasional heavier elements it marks the crowning glory of Trapeze. Recorded in 1970 just as the band changed from being a five piece to becoming a power trio , with Glenn Hughes , Mel Galley , Dave Holland. With hindsight you could say rather like one of their influences Cream, Trapeze were something of a budding super group with Hughes later joining Deep Purple , Galley joining Whitesnake and Holland joining Judas Priest. Medusa the album was written by the band members and produced by John Lodge, of the Moody Blues, and released on the Moodies own Threshold label. They toured the world with it, and on occasion even had John Bonham sit in when they played his favourite song Jury.

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.
