Esoteric Recordings announce a new release on their recently launched Cocteau Discs imprint, a limited edition reissue of BILL NELSON’s classic 4 disc ambient boxed set "TRIAL BY INTIMACY (The Book of Splendours)”.   The set was originally released on Bill’s Cocteau Records label in October 1984 and comprised recordings made by Bill at his Echo Observatory home studio. Comprising some eighty pieces of music, the set was a fine example of Bill Nelson’s grasp of Ambient music and has subsequently been hailed as a ground-breaking work.   Long deleted, the set is made available once more with this newly re-mastered Cocteau Discs edition. The new release fully restores the original elements of the "TRIAL BY INTIMACY” box and is an exact facsimile, reproducing a 32 page book and eight art postcards that featured in the original set.

Big Brother Is Watching You : The CBS Recordings Anthology
 Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release a two CD anthology by legendary Ladbroke Grove underground act Skin Alley. Formed in 1969, Skin Alley were part of the infamous CLearwater stable that included fellow acts such as Hawkwind, High TIde and Trees. Skin alley’s infectious fusion of jazz and rock was suited to the time and the band became a regular attraction on the underground festival and concert circuit. Signing to cbs records in the autumn of 1969, the band recorded their debut album with producer dick taylor (former guitarist with the pretty things).Famous for its Policeman cover, the album featured excellent tracks such as Living In Sin, Tell Me, Country Aire & Night Time. Prior to the release of their second album skin alley recorded a soundtrack album for the film Stop Veruschka!About the infamous German model. A wonderful set of music & songs, the album was shelved in favour of a new set of recordings that was released as the album to Pagham & Beyond. This anthology includes all tracks from that second album, plus the entire unreleased Stop Veruschka! Soundtrack. Re-mastered from the original master tapes, Big Brother is watching you is a fine tribute to one of britain’s greatest underground acts of the early 1970s. Our Price: £10.95
