Give Me Take You
Released 13/04/09. 'My two biggest successes would have to be the Rolling Stones and the Small Faces; equally satisfying, but not as commercially successful, was Duncan Browne. Duncan was amazing…so talented. It may have said on the records ‘Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham', but all I did was book the studio and watch the lad do his magic. And magic it was.'

Thus spake former Stones manager Andrew Oldham, who signed the late Duncan Browne to his record label, Immediate, in 1967. Oldham duly oversaw the recording of Duncan's 1968 debut album Give Me Take You, which, as with several other Oldham projects of the time (notably the Billy Nicholls album Would You Believe), only received limited distribution due to Immediate's crippling financial problems.

Now widely acknowledged as a genuine UK baroque pop/psychedelic folk classic, Give Me Take You has long been a heavily sought-after album on the collectors' circuit, with original copies selling for several hundred pounds. It has also attracted significant critical acclaim, being described by one monthly music magazine as 'an English Astral Weeks', and regularly compared to such Spirit of the Age masterpieces as the Kinks are the village green preservation society, the Zombies' Odessey & Oracle and Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left.

Time Will Pass
DEBUT UK REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC 1977 ALBUM BY THE LEGENDARY PROGRESSIVE FOLK ROCK GROUP SPRIGUNS
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever official UK release of the album on CD "Time Will Pass” by the legendary Progressive Folk Rock group SPRIGUNS.
Formed in 1972, the band was originally known as Spriguns of Tolgus and were formed by Mike and Mandy Morton. The band’s debut album was produced by Tim Hart of Steeleye Span and brought them to the attention of Decca Records for whom the album "Revel Weird and Wild” was recorded in 1976. By this time the band were known as Spriguns and had become more rock influenced.
The album "Time Will Pass” followed in 1977 and was perhaps the band’s finest hour, featuring a line-up of Mandy Morton (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar), Wayne Morrison (Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitars, Mandolin, Vocals), Dick Powell (Electric Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals), Mike Morton (bass, vocals) and Dennis Dunstan (Drums). The sessions also featured orchestral arrangements by Robert Kirby, famed for his work with Nick Drake.
Rare and highly sought after by collectors, this Esoteric Recordings reissue of "Time Will Pass” has been newly remastered from the original Decca master tapes and includes a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork.

Release Date: 28/1/2013
