Strangelands - Crazy World Of Arthur Brown (The)

Released on 28/03/11. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release the classic lost album by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Strangelands. Recorded in the Autumn of 1969, the sessions were an attempt to resurrect the Crazy World by Arthur Brown and featured some classic material. Divided into four sub-headings, ( The Country, The City, The Cosmos and The Afterlife ), Strangelands was certainly ahead of its time but failed to gain a full release for nearly two decades. In hindsight, the material can be seen as the blueprint for Arthur s next project, the innovative Kingdom Come.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue also adds the legendary Replicas sessions by Rustic Hinge. Featuring Crazy World drummer Drachan Theaker and guitarist Andy Rickell, the project was originally intended to feature Arthur Brown as vocalist and also featured the legendary High Tide guesting on one track. With Brown leaving the group to form the first incarnation of Kingdom Come, Rustic Hinge would eventually release material on John Peel’Dandelion label, whilst the Replicas sessions would remain unreleased for a further 20 years. This Esoteric reissue has been newly re-mastered and includes a new essay.

Some People
Released 20/04/09. Born Neville Keighley, Some released his first LP 'Some People' in 1985 and the title track was a club hit. Although Some's contribution to the Pretty in Pink soundtrack, "Round, Round," did not penetrate the mainstream, it introduced Some to an audience outside of discotheques. Produced by Bernard Edwards, "Round, Round" had enough electric guitars to seduce rock fans while maintaining the interest of the dance crowd with its pounding groove.

‘Imagination', a song from 'Some People', was reissued in 1986, peaking at number 17 on the U.K. pop charts. Both ‘Some People' and ‘Imagination' were remixed several times. In 1987, Some recorded his self-titled second album, but it failed to duplicate the success of his debut. Some then disappeared from the music scene, lost in an '80s "Where Are They Now?" file until 1993 when he released Living Your Life. Contains the top 20 hit ‘Imagination'

Uphill All The Way
Though best known for their mid-70s association with David Gilmour, Unicorn are cherished by the pop cognoscenti for their 1971 debut album for Transatlantic, Uphill All The Way. With its plangent melodies, wistful CSNY-style vocal harmonies, meshing acoustic/electric instrumentation and clean production sound, Uphill All The Way is now considered something of a lost classic by admirers of the post-Beatles/Byrds soft rock/progressive pop genre. Taken from the original master-tapes, this definitive reissue rounds up stray single cuts from the era as well as adding a new remix of their superb version of Jimmy Webb's 'P. F. Sloan'. It includes a lavish 16-page booklet that features a new essay on the band's early years, with fresh quotes from founder member Pat Martin and numerous previously unpublished photos. Our Price: £9.95
