The End of an Ear - Robert Wyatt

The End of an Ear
NEW REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC DEBUT SOLO ALBUM BY ROBERT WYATT RELEASED IN 1970
          
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the legendary debut solo album by ROBERT WYATT. Recorded in August 1970 whilst Wyatt was still a member of SOFT MACHINE, his first solo outing was a blend of Jazz and Experimental music that he had pioneered on his composition ‘Moon in June’ on Soft Machine’s "Third” album. The sessions for "THE END OF AN EAR” saw Robert Wyatt joined by guests such as DAVE SINCLAIR of CARAVAN and SOFT MACHINE alumni MARK CHARIG and ELTON DEAN among others. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

Press:-

"It begins with deranged, high-speed voices like something out of The Goon Show, in a vaguely Latin mood and set to discordant piano. It ends 47 minutes later having made barely a concession to the protocols of melody, lyrics or song construction. The debut solo album by Robert Wyatt was a law unto itself in 1970 and is just as enigmatic today". Paul Sexton (PROG, July 2012)

"At moments it sounds like free jazz, at others modernist sound collage, at one point, Hendrix's 'Purple Haze'." 3/5* Marcus O'Dair (Jazz Wise, August 2012)
