Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever release of "HARRODIAN EVENT #1”. Recorded in January 1972, this rare recording features a unique event where seven gifted Progressive musicians came together to record a session of unique experimental music. Keyboard player J. Peter Robinson (a member of QUATERMASS, later in BRAND X), John Gustafson (Bass) had also been in Quatermass and would go on to play with STEVE HACKETT, IAN GILLAN and ROXY MUSIC), Martyn Ford had been an arranger for BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST before working with the major names in rock, Paul Buckmaster had worked with DAVID BOWIE, THIRD EAR BAND and many more, whilst Trevor Morais would find fame in QUANTUM JUMP and working with the PENGUIN CAFÉ ORCHESTRA.
The music of the Harrodian Event touches on the styles later developed by artists such as Henry Cow or even Frank Zappa. It is experimental, unique and rewarding.
This Esoteric Recordings release has been remastered by J. Peter Robinson, who also wrote the essay in the accompanying illustrated booklet.

Inginbottom’s Wrench
Released 26/10/09. Allan Holdsworth is a legendary figure in the world of Jazz and Rock guitar players. For four decades he has been considered one of the finest exponents of the instrument. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the album that saw Holdsworth make his recorded debut, Igginbottom's Wrench. Igginbottom was formed in Bradford in 1968 and also featured Dave Freeman (drums), Steven Robinson (guitar, vocals) and Mick Skelly (bass). Their sole album was originally released by Decca's Deram label in 1969, and featured such innovative pieces as The Castle and Sweet Dry Biscuits. The record also enjoyed the patronage of Jazz legend Ronnie Scott. A criminally under-rated work, Esoteric is proud to present the album to a new audience. Our Price: £10.95

Paul Brett Sage
30/03/09. Respected guitarist and singer-songwriter Paul Brett began his career in the 1960 s by performing on records by Arthur Brown and Tintern Abbey among others. After guesting on the acclaimed Magic Shoemaker album by Fire in 1970 he signed to Pye Records as a solo artist recording the classic Paul Brett Sage the same year. A stunning mixture of styles, the record has become a highly regarded work by aficionados of so-called Acid Folk and Progressive Rock. Our Price: £10.95

Is A Friend?
Released on 29/03/10. Is a Friend? by THE PARLOUR BAND. Issued by Decca's Deram imprint in 1972, this highly sought after release has never been issued on CD in the UK until now. Featuring Craig Anders (guitar, vocals), Mark Anders (bass, vocals), Peter Filleul (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Pix (lead vocals) and Jerry Robins (drums), The Parlour band was a melodic Progressive outfit who excelled vocally and toured extensively as support act to bands such as Caravan and Khan, but failed to make a commercial impression, despite the excellence of their work, leaving behind their sole album for Deram as their recorded legacy. Our Price: £10.95

Mass-Media Stars
Following on from the successful series of reissues of Italian progressive rock legends PFM and BANCO, ESOTERIC RECORDINGS is pleased to announce the release of both albums by Italy’s ACQUA FRAGILE. Formed in Milan, Acqua Fragile featured BERNARDO LANZETTI (vocals, guitar), GINO CAMPANINI (guitar, vocals), MAURIZIO MORI (keyboards, vocals), FRANZ DONDI (Bass) and PIERO CANAVERA (Drums, Guitar, Vocals). 

Inspired by British groups such as Genesis and Family and by the success of fellow group PFM, ACQUA FRAGILE wrote original material and sung lyrics in English. No mere clones of their British counterparts, ACQUA FRAGILE’s second album, MASSMEDIA STARS, was an accomplished work with many marvellous songs and enjoyed a release in the USA. The music was inspired enough for vocalist Bernardo Lanzetti to be sought out as a future member of PFM.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue is newly re-mastered and fully restores the original album artwork. The booklet also features a new essay with an interview with Bernardo Lanzetti.
Our Price: £10.95
