Rock & Roll - Vanilla Fudge

Rock & Roll
NEWLY REMASTERED OFFICIAL EDITION OF THE 1969 ALBUM BY THE LEGENDARY VANILLA FUDGE
WITH FOUR RARE BONUS TRACKS
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered edition of the 1969 album by the legendary proto-progressive American rock group, VANILLA FUDGE.
Long Island’s Vanilla Fudge formed in 1966 when vocalist and organist Mark Stein, bassist Tim Bogert and drummer Carmine Appice came together to form one of the most influential rock trios of the 1960s. Initially inspired by The Rascals’ organ dominated rock, Vanilla Fudge signed to Atlantic Records releasing their self-titled debut album in August 1967. Famous for their extended interpretations of classic material such as ‘You Keep Me Hanging On’ and ‘Eleanor Rigby’, by 1969 the band had influenced emerging bands such as Uriah Heep, Yes and Deep Purple, but had tired of the touring and recording treadmill.
"Rock and Roll” would be the band’s final album of their initial formation. Released in September 1969, the album maintained the excellence of their previous works, featuring self-written material such as ‘Need Love’, ‘Lord in the Country’ along with imaginative covers of ‘The Windmills of Your Mind’, and Carole King and Gerry Goffin’s ‘I Can’t Make it Alone’.
This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly remastered from the original masters and includes an illustrated booklet and a new essay.

Snafu
East of Eden's second album, 'Snafu' was originally released in 1970 by Deram Records and saw the band take their particular fusion of jazz, psychedelia, world music and even blue beat, one step further. As ever, the instrumental prowess of Dave Arbus on violin dominated the music, leading eventually to Arbus playing the infamous violin solo on 'Baba O'Reilly' by The Who. 'Snafu' was the result of many months in the studio, before being shelved in favour of starting work on a fresh project. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and features many unreleased bonus tracks, including five previously unreleased tracks from the aborted album sessions and alternate demo and single versions of their 1971 hit, 'Jig-A-Jig'. An extensive essay features interviews and previously unseen photographs. Our Price: £10.95

Fat Mattress – Expanded Edition
Released 29/06/09. Recorded in 1969, 'Fat Mattress' was the eponymous debut album by the band formed by Jimi Hendrix Experience bass guitarist Noel Redding. Recorded in late 1968 / early 1969, the album evoked the influences of the time, touching upon styles pioneered by groups such as Traffic (whose member Chris Wood guested on the record). A superb piece of Psychedelic rock in its own right, 'Fat Mattress' failed to get the attention it deserved at the time of release (despite a tour as support act to the Hendrix Experience) but has subsequently been hailed as a classic of the era. This Esoteric reissue has eight bonus tracks comprising non-album singles, mono mixes, studio out-takes and an unreleased solo single by FAT MATTRESS' Jim Leverton. Our Price: £10.95

Turn It Over
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release the second album by the legendary jazz / rock / fusion outfit Tony Williams Lifetime. The group was founded by former Miles Davis drummer Tony Williams in 1969 out of his desire to fuse the influences of modern jazz and rock music.

Recruiting legendary British guitarist John McLaughlin and organist Larry Young, Williams recorded the album Emergency!. It was a stunning and seminal work that divided critics in both jazz and rock but is now rightly regarded as being a groundbreaking work. In 1970 legendary bassist & vocalist Jack Bruce joined the group to record the outstanding Turn It Over. Far ahead of itstime, the album was to influence future fusion groups.
Our Price: £10.95
