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.

Press:-

"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*)

A Grounding In Numbers (Vinyl Edition)
The brand new studio album by the legendary Van Der Graaf Generator. Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of the new Van Der Graaf Generator album, "A Grounding in Numbers”. The stunning new album is the band’s 12th studio record by the band and is their first since 2008. The album will be released as both a CD and a limited edition individually numbered vinyl LP edition (restricted to 2000 copies) and will be backed up by a short tour of the UK and some dates in Europe. In April 2010 Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans met up for intensive tracking sessions in Cornwall, arranging, rehearsing and recording the album in a week. Some of the pieces were already fully-formed songs; others, even at this stage, remained more sketches than fully realised works. Over the next months the tracks were overdubbed, edited and adapted by the band in their own studios. By September the project was ready to be mixed. Legendary producer Hugh Padgham agreed to take on this part of the process - the first time anyone outside the band had been entrusted such responsibility. After three weeks in Hugh’s London studio, Sofasound (which shares its name with Peter’s original home set-up), "A Grounding in Numbers” was completed. With a fantastic clarity and depth of sound and a helter-skelter stretch of tunes, "A Grounding...” sees VdGG pushing ever further forward into the twenty first century. Clearly, they know they’re a group with a certain history - but they are also an emphatically modern one.

Armageddon
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.

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
