The Going’s Easy - Greatest Show On Earth (The)

The Going’s Easy
NEW EDITION OF THE CLASSIC SECOND ALBUM BY THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH
NEWLY REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL HARVEST RECORDS’ MASTER TAPES
WITH TWO RARE BONUS TRACKS
THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH were one of the more stylistically original signings to EMI’s legendary Progressive label Harvest. The band was formed in 1968 and featured brothers Garth and Norman Watt-Roy (who played guitar and bass respectively), vocalist, guitarist and flautist Colin Horton-Jennings, Mick Deacon on Organ, a horn section of Dick Hanson, Tex Philpotts and Ian Aitcheson and drummer Ron Prudence. The band began to take on board more "progressive” influences, incorporating rock, jazz and acoustic music into their sound.
An impressive live act, Greatest Show on Earth released their debut album in February 1970 adorned in a startling Hipgnosis designed sleeve. "The Going’s Easy”, released in November 1970, was an equally competent work that included the excellent rock track ‘Borderline’ and the acoustic ‘Magic Woman Touch’ (later covered by The Hollies). Upon the band’s demise Mike Deacon joined Vinegar Joe (fronted by Elkie Brooks and Robert Palmer), Garth Watt-Roy went on to perform and record with Fuzzy Duck. Norman Watt-Roy and John Turnball later became founder members of Ian Dury’s backing group, The Blockheads.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue features two bonus tracks, has been newly re-mastered from the original Harvest master tapes and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a Two disc Deluxe edition of the self titled album by QUATERMASS.

Their unique brand of powerful progressive rock encompassed classical music and hard rock, a unique combination that influenced contemporaries such as Deep Purple (indeed Ritchie Blackmore covered "Black Sheep of the Family” on the first Rainbow album).

This collective of musicians formed in the late months of 1968 with a line-up of Gary Compton (harmonica), Liz Hanns (vocals), Brian Strachan (guitar), Ron Needs (mandolin) and Dennis Parker (lead vocals, guitar, banjo). The group soon found favour with DJ John Peel, an early champion of their work, and they became one of the first signings to EMI’s new underground label, Harvest.
