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).

Escalator
Released on 24/05/10. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to be release the classic 1968 Psychedelic Rock album, Escalator, by Sam Gopal. One of a handful of albums released on the short lived Stable imprint, Escalator is a gem of an album that is notable for the presence of Ian Willis, otherwise known as Lemmy. However, Escalator is asmemorable for the talents of Malaysian born percussionist Gopal and his band also including Roger D Elia (Guitar) and Phil Duke (bass). With such fine material as The Dark Lord, The Sky is Burning and Midsummer Night's Dream, Escalator is an essential album of British underground rock from the late 1960's. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and fully restores the original artwork. Our Price: £10.95

Samurai
Samurai' is truly a lost classic of the Progressive era. Released on the short lived Greenwich Gramophone label in 1972, the album was influenced by the experiments of groups such as King Crimson, Gentle Giant et al, but was more than a mere clone of these bands. Evolving from the equally excellent band Web (whose album 'I Spider' is a classic of the genre), the musicianship on the album was excellent and Keyboard player Dave Lawson's compositions were groundbreaking and memorable. Sadly the group disbanded shortly after the release of the record resulting in limited sales. However, the influence of the album was not lost as both Dave Lawson and Tony Reeves soon joined Dave Greenslade to form the group Greenslade, effectively taking up the musical mantle laid down by Samurai. This Esoteric reissue features a booklet with previously unseen photographs and an interview with Dave Lawson. Our Price: £10.95

Go
Stomu Yamashta is a master percussionist who studied jazz drumming at the Berklee School Of Jazz. In the 1970's he recorded a string of innovative albums for Island records which utilised the talents of such leading musicians as Hugh Hopper, Maurice Pert, Steve Winwood, Michael Shrieve and Klaus Schulze, fusing his percussion talents with jazz, electronic and classical music to creat an ambient form of music all of his own. His music has been used by the Royal Ballet. Originally released in April 1976, 'Go' is perhaps Yamashta's finest achievement and also featured collaborators Steve Winwood and Michael Shrieve along with artists such as Klaus Schulze and ex-Traffic and future Can bassist Rosko Gee. Our Price: £10.95
