Little Red Record:2cd Expanded Edition - Matching Mole

Little Red Record:2cd Expanded Edition
Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a Deluxe 2CD Expanded edition of Matching Mole’s album "LITTLE RED RECORD”. Formed in 1971, Matching Mole originally featured former SOFT MACHINE drummer ROBERT WYATT, former CARAVAN keyboard player DAVE SINCLAIR, guitarist PHIL MILLER, bassist BILL McCORMICK with guest keyboard player DAVE MacRAE. Their wonderful self-titled debut album was recorded between December 1971 and February 1972, following which DAVE SINCLAIR departed, with DAVE MacRAE assuming a full time role within the band. "LITTLE RED RECORD” was Matching Mole’s second marvellous album, recorded in August 1972 and was produced by KING CRIMSON leader ROBERT FRIPP. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and is expanded to include four previously unreleased studio session alternate takes and Matching Mole’s appearance on BBC Radio One "In Concert” in July 1972. The booklet restores all original artwork and includes an essay by Sid Smith.


"On Little Red Record, more of a collective effort than its mellotron-soaked predecessor, we hear the full skit that would, in edited form, kick off the finished record. And if it sounds like they're having a blast, it's in no small part because one of the voices belongs to Alfie, Robert's new girlfriend..." (4/5*)

Newly Remastered Cd Release for this classic album featuring Keith Relf, Martin Pugh, Louis Cennamo & Bobby Caldwell from 1975. Booklet with photos & liner notes. Armageddon was one of THE great unsung bands of the mid- 1970 s. Formed in 1974 out of the ashes of the UK band Steamhammer, the group featured the vocal talents of former YARDBIRDS front man KEITH RELF, alongside guitarist MARTIN PUGH, bassist LOUIS CENNAMO and drummer BOBBY CALDWELL. Originally released by A&M Records in 1975, Armageddon'ssole album featured some amazing music ranging from the LED ZEPPELIN-esque Paths and Planes and Future Gains to the Progressive rock of Silver Tightrope and Basking in the White of the Midnight Sun . The much overused term Lost Classic is, in the case of this record, most apt. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and restores the original album artwork and will appeal to lovers of Progressive and Classic Rock

Released 29/06/09. Released in 1969, the eponymous album by Circus was one of the first Progressive Rock releases on the Transatlantic label, until that time primarily known as a leading Folk and Folk Rock imprint. Circus featured saxophonist and flautist Mel Collins (later to join King Crimson And Camel), along with Ian Jeff (guitar, vocals), Kirk Riddle (bass) and Chris Burrows (drums). An excellent jazz influenced Progressive work, the album featured a notable cover of Lennon & McCartney's 'Norwegian Wood' and is now a highly desirable collector's item among Progressive rock aficionados.

Esoteric Recordings are proud to release the classic 1978 album Way of the Sun by Jadewarrior. This wonderful band first came to attention with a clutch of albums recorded for Vertigo Records in the early 1970's. By 1974 they had become the vision of flautist Jon Field and guitarist Tony Duhig and had signed to Island Records. Noted by Chris Blackwell as one of his favourite groups, the four albums recorded by JADE WARRIOR for Island were classic ambient works, stunning in their beauty and power. KITES was JADEWARRIOR s third fine album for the label, and remains an outstanding listening experience. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and fully restores the original album artwork.
