Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition and first ever complete CD release of the classic album "DIVERGENCE” by the legendary Dutch Progressive Jazz Rock group SOLUTION.
SOLUTION formed in Groningen, Holland in 1968. The band recorded their self-titled debut album for Dutch EMI imprint Catfish in May 1971.

"Divergence” featured many fine tracks, including ‘Second Line’, ‘New Dimension’ and the album title track, recorded by fellow Dutch band FOCUS as the piece ‘TOMMY’ on their album "Moving Waves”.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue includes the track ‘FEVER’, omitted from the previous CD edition of the album and has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes. It features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

Brass Rock 1
vHeaven, a jazz rock group from Portsmouth, burst forth onto the British rock scene in 1970 when they appeared at the legendary Isle of Wight festival sharing a bill with The Who, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix et al. Making a stunning debut, the band (now managed by festival organiser Rikki Farr), soon secured a recording deal with CBS Records who signed the band for a large advance. The resulting double album 'Brass Rock 1' appeared in 1971, adorned in a lavish fold-out sleeve. Well received critically, the album failed to achieve the expected success and Heaven soon disbanded, leaving behind a fine example of classic jazz rock. Officially released on CD for the first time, this Esoteric Recordings reissue is digitally re-mastered from the original master tapes and restores the artwork of the album in full.
