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.

A Life In Music 2CD
Ravi Shankar, who died aged 92, in December 2012, was the musical visionary who thanks to the cultural influences of his family, the advantages of a disciplined classical background and a heady sixties association with George Harrison and The Beatles, established the sitar and the raga into western consciousness. He was thus the first performer and composer to bridge the musical gap between India and the west.
Ravi Shankar is already considered to have been one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century.
Ravi's first musical ventures were as a child, appearing in his brother Uday's dance company in America and France. In his teens he was apprenticed to the sarod master, Allauddin Khan under who's demanding tutelage he would inherit the great tradition of Indian classical music.
By the time his first met George Harrison and Paul McCartney in 1966, Shankar had given recitals with Khan's son, the sarodist, Ali Akbar Khan, served as musical director of All India Radio's first National Orchestra, and been sent to all points on cultural tours by the Indian government. He had composed elegant film themes for Satyajit Ray's Apu Trilogy, and taught and befriended the jazz musicians John Coltrane and Don Ellis.
Ravi met the Beatles at a point when the Fab Four were looking to expand their musical language and to make deeper artistic statements. Legend has it that they had already been introduced to Ravi's music by Byrds guitarist Roger McGuinn at an LSD party in Los Angeles and indeed they dabbled with the sitar on the 1965 hit, Norwegian Wood. On meeting Ravi Shankar, George Harrison determined to take the instrument seriously, soon journeying to meet Ravi in India for a period of intensive tuition. There by the banks of the Dal Lake in Srinagar, the guitarist was inspired to write Within You Without You for the album, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles' tribute to Ravi Shankar.
The flower-power generation were beguiled by Ravi. He appeared at the
Monterey and Woodstock Festivals, and at the Concert for Bangledesh in New York in 1971 and made no attempt attempt to conceal his appreciation of the adulation, "Though I had been performing all over the world since 1954, my association with George attracted a whole young generation to sitar and to me from the mid-1960s. Even though I didn't make any record jamming with him or any other pop or rock star, I was treated like a superstar, being the Beatle George's guru.”
The recordings featured here are likely those that turned the The Beatles
on to Ravi. They were made between 1956 and 1962 and for all the success that followed they are arguably the pinnacle of his recorded artistry.

Inner Life
Inner Life was an American studio project group led by Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael. After crossing paths in their working circles, Greg Carmichael enlisted the vocal prowess of an established backing singer by the name of Jocelyn Brown and asked her to sing co-lead on a song that would feature the amazing talent of the New York philharmonic orchestra and set dancefloors alight with the Chic-influenced disco romp, Keep On Jumping which sat itself comfortably atop the Billboard Disco Chart.
On the back of this success Jocelyn joined forces with Carmichael and Adams along with Leroy Burgess and backed them with the unmistakably fantastic Salsoul Orchestra. The result was 3 albums that have gone on to become disco dance classics. BBR presents to you Inner Life – Inner Life. Inner Life was released in 1981 on the legendary Salsoul Records and featured production mastery by Inner Life’s creators, Greg Carmichael and Patrick Adams.
Recorded at the historic Sigma Sound Studios, Inner Life presented two singles offerings the first of which was a rendition of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s 1967 Motown hit Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and daunting a task as it may have been for Brown, she did the track wonderful justice with her incredibly natural and soulful vocal taking the single all the way to #20 on the US Disco Chart. Other notable tracks include the second single (Knock Out) Let’s Go Another Round and the more laid back groover Make It Last Forever. There are further remixes by the legendary John Morales and Larry Levan.
BBR is very excited to announce the release of Inner Life – Inner Life. This fully expanded remaster comes complete with extensive liner notes featuring an interview with Jocelyn Brown and added bonus content making this BBR Remaster a must have for all Soul, Funk, Disco and R&B fans out there!
