ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered edition of the classic third album by SPIROGYRA, "BELLS, BOOTS AND SHAMBLES”. Initially formed by duo Martin Cockerham and Mark Francis in Bolton in 1968, the band expanded when Cockerham was a student in Canterbury at the end of 1969. In 1973 the band recorded their third album, released on Polydor Records. By this time Spirogyra had become a core of Martin Cockerham (guitar, vocals) and Barbara Gaskin (lead vocals) with Steve Borrill (bass) and guest musicians Dave Mattacks (drums), Julian Cusack (violin, keyboards), Henry Lowther (trumpet), John Boyce (cello), Stan Sulzman (flute) and Steve Ashley (whistle).

Kossoff, Kirke, Tetsu, Rabbit
Paul Kossoff has a deserved reputation for having been an outstanding guitarist, renowned for his fluid, slow, and melodic leads and bluesy riffs. His untimely death, and the manner of his demise sadly often overshadow his achievements. Kossoff’s time with Free helped define blues rock in the late 1960’s. Following their initial split in 1971 Kossoff kept the spirit flowing with this one off album, recorded with fellow Free founder Simon Kirke, plus bassist Tetsu Yamauchi, and legendary keyboardist John Rabbit Bundrick.

Forms and Feelings
Love sculpture's classic psychedelic album - now re-mastered from the original tapes & expanded to include original singles & "Mars", removed from the UK edition of the original album in 1969. Dave Edmunds' importance in the history of welsh rock music cannot be understated. In the 70's he became an icon recording for Led Zeppelin's swan song label and working with George Harrison Edmunds' recording career began with the trio love sculpture, revealing Edmunds to be a guitar hero of extreme prowess. After a first single released under the name the human beans the band became love sculpture and recorded "blues helping", a classic album of blues-rock for Emi's Parlophone label. In 1969 the band veered to a more underground direction to record their classic top ten hit 'Sabre Dance', championed by DJ John Peel. The ensuing album (engineered by future yes producer Eddie Offord) was equally stunning. Our Price: £10.95

Swaddling Songs
Featuring girl singers Clodagh Simonds and Alison Williams, Mellow Candle never achieved commercial success they deserved spawning a legendary psychedelic folk-rock album akin to Fairport Convention or Fotheringay. Touring to support Thin Lizzy (Simonds played on Lizzy'salbum Shades of a Blue Orphanage ) and Horslips, the band had a short lived existence . Clodagh Simonds later went on to play again with Mike Oldfield and Jade Warrior and this release serves as evidence of the talents of both Simonds and the band who deserved far more commercial success than they attained. Now rightly regarded as a classic of the genre, Esoteric Recordings are proud to add Swaddling Songs to their catalogue.
