was formed in 1973 by guitarist GARY BOYLE and also featured JEFF CLYNE
on Bass, BRIAN MILLER on Keyboards and NIGEL MORRIS on drums. Jeff Clyne
had previously played with Ian Carr’s Nucleus, whilst Gary Boyle had
played with Stomu Yamashta’s East Wind.Isotope’s self titled
debut album was released in early 1974 and continued the tradition of
Jazz Rock fusion that had been pioneered by acts such as Tony Williams
Lifetime and The Mahavishnu Orchestra. Although critically acclaimed,
Brian Miller and Jeff Clyne departed Isotope shortly after the debut
album had appeared and were replaced by former SOFT MACHINE bassist HUGH
HOPPER and keyboard player LAURENCE SCOTT. This line-up recorded the
excellent album Illusion with former Family member Poli Palmer
producing.  A Jazz Rock classic, this Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered and features a booklet with new essay.

The Polite Force
This now legendary debut album by Egg featured the talents of Dave Stewart on Keyboards, Mont Campbell on Bass and Clive Brooks on Drums. Egg were associated with the so-called 'Canterbury' style of rock music pioneered by artists such as Caravan and Soft Machine. The trio produced music of startling originality and energy, drawing on influences ranging from rock to jazz to psychedelia to classical. This fusion resulted in some of the most enduring releases to appear on Decca's Deram and Nova imprints and are now critically regarded as some of the more unique albums of the early 1970's. Egg's classic second album is re-mastered from the original tapes and appears alongside the reissue of 'Egg'. With these releases, the entire EGG back catalogue is now available on Esoteric Recordings. Our Price: £10.95

Although critically acclaimed, the album failed to sell in quantities it deserved and Home disbanded the following year. With the addition of guest Jimmy Anderson on Mellotron and Synthesiser, the conceptual work also brought the guitar playing of Laurie Wisefield to the fore, eventually leading to his joining WISHBONEASH soon after the demise of Home Our Price: £10.95
