ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic album "PERILOUS JOURNEY” by GORDON GILTRAP. For over forty years Gordon has enjoyed the well-deserved reputation as one of Britain’s greatest guitar players. He made his first recordings in the 1960s as folk artist, but by 1976 he had crossed into the Progressive Rock genre and signed to the newly formed Electric Records imprint.
His second album for Electric was arguably his most famous. Released in 1977, "PERILOUS JOURNEY” included the hit single ‘Heartsong’ (used for many years by the BBC as theme to the "Holiday” programme). "Perilous Journey” saw Gordon backed by a band of outstanding musicians such as JOHN G. PERRY (Bass), ROD EDWARDS (keyboards) and SIMON PHILLIPS (drums) and featured many outstanding tracks.
This Esoteric Recordings edition is newly remastered from the original tapes and includes four bonus tracks. The reissue also features a lavishly illustrated booklet with new essay and interview with Gordon Giltrap.

The Weight Of The World
NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM POST-PROGRESSIVE OUTFIT SANGUINE HUM.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio album by Sanguine Hum. "The Weight of the World” sees Sanguine Hum expand their musical horizons on all fronts with a seven-track collection of diverse compositions - technically challenging and exciting yet always melodic and direct.
Songs such as ‘From the Ground Up’ and ‘System for Solution’ pursue the Porcupine Tree meets Radiohead approach of the debut record "Diving Bell” with powerful yet intricate riffs propelling the songwriting that continues to make ever more inventive use of surprising twists and turns in the arrangement. Surprises are to be found as well in the instrumentation as the band open up the sound and more explicitly reference a love of electronica and the music of artists such as Boards of Canada and Aphex Twin, best heard in the song ‘Day of Release’ as synthetic percussion and rumbling synths give way to chiming acoustic guitar and a soaring vocal melody. Perhaps even more exciting for a band that perhaps held some of their Prog influences in check on their debut album, is the 15-minute title track that manages the task of combining effective and emotional songwriting with thrilling musical developments that push the band to the limit.
"The Weight of the World” breaks new ground for a band at the forefront of truly "progressive” music.

Ravens & Lullabies 2CD Signed Limited Edition
A LIMITED SIGNED 2 CD DIGIPACK EDITION OF THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM BY GORDON GILTRAP AND OLIVER WAKEMAN

FEATURING A BONUS CD OF UNRELEASED LIVE RECORDINGS AND STUDIO TRACKS -





March 4th 2013 will see guitar legend Gordon Giltrap and keyboardist Oliver Wakeman (following his years of touring with the classic progressive rock band YES) release their debut collaborative album 'Ravens & Lullabies' by Esoteric Antenna, a 13 song collection of hard hitting memorable rock pieces coupled with thought provoking lyrics alongside acoustic duets featuring their fine instrumental interplay. Gordon and Oliver spent 2012 writing and recording the album which features a return for Gordon to his rock roots following a 30 year absence and Oliver's first recorded works since his departure from both Yes and Strawbs. The album has been recorded and mixed by 'Threshold' guitarist Karl Groom (who also mixed the Yes 'Live In Lyon' record which featured Oliver on keyboards).
This limited signed 2 disc edition features a Bonus CD of live recordings taken from Gordon and Oliver’s 2012 tour and re-recordings of pieces from Oliver and Gordon's past catalogue. Ravens and Lullabies sees a host of respected musicians joining Gordon and Oliver in the studio. Vocalist Paul Manzi has performed with the Oliver Wakeman Band for the last 6 years (appearing on the live DVD 'Coming to Town') and is the current vocalist for the rock band Arena. Steve Amadeo is an in demand Jazz/Blues/Rock session bass player, is currently performing with Blues guitarist Aynsley Lister and Johanne James has been the drummer for Threshold for the last 12 years. The album also features a special vocal appearance by Benoit David, Oliver's old band mate from Yes, on the track 'From the Turn of a Card' written by Oliver during the Yes recording sessions of 2010.
Gordon Giltrap says "Working with Oliver is like a breath of fresh air. I knew of his reputation as a fine musician, and it made perfect sense for me to tap into his creative energy, not only to bring out certain elements of my musical gifts but to create something new and exciting, whilst giving a nod in the direction of our respective Progressive Rock roots". Oliver Wakeman adds, "After working with YES, the chance of working with another legendary artist was an opportunity too good to miss. I am having a wonderfully productive time working with Gordon and feel we are creating something genuinely unique in our 'Ravens & Lullabies' project." Many of Gordon's fans have been asking for years when he is going to return to his rock roots and others wondered what Oliver would write after the Yes experiences. 'Ravens & Lullabies' provides the answer.
