Genesis (2CD)
NEW REMASTERED 2 DISC EXPANDED & REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC DEBUT ALBUM BY THE GODS – FEATURING KEN HENSLEY & LEE KERSLAKE
FEATURING BOTH MONO & STEREO MIXES OF THE ALBUM ALONG WITH FOUR EXTRA BONUS TRACKS – THE FIRST EVER RELEASE OF THE ALBUM MONO MIX ON CD
REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL EMI MASTER TAPES
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the debut album by THE GODS. Formed in Hatfield in 1965 by future Rolling Stones guitarist MICK TAYLOR, the band also featured KEN HENSLEY (keyboards, guitar, vocals), JOHN GLASCOCK (bass, vocals), JOE KONAS (guitar, vocals) and LEE KERSLAKE (drums). Originally a blues based band, in 1967 Mick Taylor departed to join JOHN MAYALL’S BLUESBREAKERS and during this period GREG LAKE joined the band briefly, replacing John Glascock on bass. By 1968 the band had signed to EMI’s Columbia label and had settled into a line-up that saw John Glascock return to the band. By this time The Gods had embraced both Psychedelia and Progressive styles. "Genesis” was a fine album and is now rightly hailed as a classic of the late Psychedelic and early Progressive era.
This Esoteric Recordings expanded reissue includes the original stereo and mono mixes of the album (the first time the mono mix has appeared on CD), along with four bonus tracks comprising the A & B sides of the band’s singles of the time. These includes The Gods’ cover version of The Beatles’ ‘Hey Bulldog’ and their original classic ‘Real Love Guaranteed’. The reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original EMI master tapes and includes a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Singles A’s & B’s Vol.1 1964-1966

Shout! Records is delighted to present the first CD series to collate the singles recordings by Joe Tex from his hit years on the Dial label and their Atlantic licensee, chronologically sequenced, and featuring the A-side and B-side of each 45. On this, Volume One, covering the years 1964 to 1966.

Joe was already a veteran of a decade of recordings on King, Ace and earlier Dial releases when producer Buddy Killen took him to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, in October 1964 to record ‘Hold What You've Got'. The disc was a crossover smash hit, and the rest is history. Each of the 11 A-sides in this collection reached the R&B top 20 and the US national Hot 100, providing a lasting impression of infectious mix of humour and soul philosophy that graced the music of Joe Tex.

Although there have been numerous CD re-issues of Joe's music, all to date have been either selective ‘greatest hits' collections or have re-packaged various albums, so this is a ground-breaking ‘first' in chronicling the illustrious career of the man dubbed ‘The Clown Prince of Soul', Joe Tex.

First collection of Joe Tex singles in sequence of releases. Features all the A-sides and B-sides & 11 R&B top 20 hits including two chart-toppers. Each single was also a Billboard Hot 100 hit. Booklet features track by track annotation.

Listen!

Following a run of ten Top 40 singles in the span of two years, Gary Lewis and The Playboys hit a career crossroads in 1967. Called on to actively serve in the Vietnam War, Gary Lewis used his brief leaves from the service to maintain some semblance of a recording career, recording as a solo artist. The result was his late 67 psych-pop gem 'Listen!', arranged by Jack Nitzsche.

Featuring his best recordings to date, 'Listen' Includes the spellbinding hit Jill (written by Happy Together songsmiths Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon). The deluxe, full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes by noted pop historian Andrew Sandoval, featuring the participation of Gary Lewis.
