Touch
Released on 30th of January. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a new remastered edition of the superb 1969 Psychedelic / Progressive rock masterpiece by TOUCH. Formed in 1968 by former Kingsmen keyboard player DON GALLUCCI, the band also featured JOEY NEWMAN (Guitar), BRUCE HAUSER (Bass), JEFF HAWKS (Vocals) and JOHN BARNARDO (Drums). Making their home in a Moorish style mansion in the Hollywood Hills, TOUCH created an album both experimental and ground breaking in style.

Their debut album was recorded at Sunset Sound Studios in Hollywood and sessions saw admirers such as JIMI HENDRIX, GRACE SLICK and MICK JAGGER visit the studio to offer encouragement and support to the band. Tracks such as the epic "SEVENTY FIVE” and "THE SPIRITUAL DEATH OF HOWARD GREER” were hallmarks of the album’s excellence. Another highlight track, "DOWN AT CIRCE’S PLACE” gained the band a UK following when it was included on the DERAM sampler "WOWIE ZOWIE- THE WORLD OF PROGRESSIVE MUSIC” in 1969. Four decades on, "TOUCH” is now rightly hailed as a masterpiece of the era.

Singles A’s & B’s Vol.1 1964-1966

Shout! Records is delighted to present the first CD series to collate the singles recordings by Joe Tex from his hit years on the Dial label and their Atlantic licensee, chronologically sequenced, and featuring the A-side and B-side of each 45. On this, Volume One, covering the years 1964 to 1966.

Joe was already a veteran of a decade of recordings on King, Ace and earlier Dial releases when producer Buddy Killen took him to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, in October 1964 to record ‘Hold What You've Got'. The disc was a crossover smash hit, and the rest is history. Each of the 11 A-sides in this collection reached the R&B top 20 and the US national Hot 100, providing a lasting impression of infectious mix of humour and soul philosophy that graced the music of Joe Tex.

Although there have been numerous CD re-issues of Joe's music, all to date have been either selective ‘greatest hits' collections or have re-packaged various albums, so this is a ground-breaking ‘first' in chronicling the illustrious career of the man dubbed ‘The Clown Prince of Soul', Joe Tex.

First collection of Joe Tex singles in sequence of releases. Features all the A-sides and B-sides & 11 R&B top 20 hits including two chart-toppers. Each single was also a Billboard Hot 100 hit. Booklet features track by track annotation.
