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).

Pre-Flight
Recorded at the Decca studios in the summer of 1970, Room's Pre Flight was an ambitious blend of rock, blues, jazz and classical influences. The album was critically well received but unfortunately like many strong releases of this genre at the time on the classic Deram label, did not achieve the hoped for breakthrough to greater commercial success. Room's only recorded work, the album has been re-mastered from the original analogue tapes and is now presented in this definitive edition from Esoteric Recordings. Our Price: £10.95

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.
