Rhinos, Winos & Lunatics (2cd expanded edition)
Man's importance in the history of Welsh rock music cannot be understated. Fusing the worlds of Psychedelia, Blues, Rock and Roll and West Coast inspired rock, they were simply one of Britain's most original groups of the 1970's. Along with label-mates Hawkwind, Man were true champions. The reissuing of Man's entire legacy for United Artists continues with their 1974 Top 30 album hailed by many as their defining moment. The reissue is expanded with an extra previously unreleased CD recorded in Los Angeles in 1974 featuring "American Mother" never recorded by Man. The booklet includes liner notes exclusively penned by MAN guitarist and raconteur Deke Leonard. The time is right to r e-experience the musical ages of man!

Back Into The Future
Originally released in 1973, Back into the Future was the first UK chart album for Welsh rock legends, Man. A fabulous double album, the set originally comprised a studio album and a live LP recorded at the Roundhouse in June 1973. For this set Man were joined on stage by a male voice choir, possibly the only time spaced out free flowing rock had fused with the unique sound of Welsh voices. The result was a wonderful album which charted in the UK and Germany and broke MAN to a wider audience in Britain. As part of Esoteric'sreissue programme of the Man catalogue we are proud to present the re-mastered album and two bonus discs of Man'sentire Roundhouse set. As a final treat, two previously unreleased studio tracks complete this essential release

Tap Turns on the Water – The CCS Story 2CD
A BRAND NEW ANTHOLOGY BY THE LEGENDARY C.C.S. FEATURING THEIR COMPLETE RECORDINGS
NEWLY REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a brand new 2CD deluxe anthology of the complete recordings by the legendary C.C.S.
Formed in 1970, C.C.S. (Collective Consciousness Society) was the brainchild of musician and arranger John Cameron, guitarist Alexis Korner (the father of British Blues) and producer MIckie Most. The group was initially conceived as a recording band only, but following the success of their legendary cover version of Led Zeppelin’s "Whole Lotta Love” (used as the theme for "Top of the Pops” for many years) and "Tap Turns on the Water”, the band also undertook live work.
C.C.S. featured the cream of jazz and blues talent such as flautist Harold McNair, bass players Herbie Flowers and Spike Heatley, sax players Tony Coe and Ron Ross, trumpet players Henry Lowther, Kenny Wheeler and Harold Beckett and drummers Barry Morgan and Tony Carr.
Between 1970 and 1973 C.C.S. released three albums and seven singles for RAK Records, with one album and four singles all reaching the UK Top Forty.
This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features all of the band’s recordings for RAK Records. The set also features an illustrated booklet with new essay.
