North: Deluxe Edition
· EAGERLY AWAITED NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM JOHN LEES’ BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST
· FULL UK TOUR IN NOVEMBER 2013

Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio album by John Lees’ BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST - "North”.

The album (featuring all new material) draws on the fine musical heritage of Barclay James Harvest whilst bringing the BJH legacy up to date with expansive compositions and thoughtful lyrics. The band’s roots in rural north-west England are explored on the album’s title track, along with another extended piece, ‘On Leave’. The album also includes the recent digital single ‘Unreservedly Yours’ and ‘Ancient Waves’, a song performed live in more recent times.

This deluxe limited edition 2CD digi-pack release includes a previously unreleased bonus CD featuring highlights of the band’s sold out concert at Buxton Opera House in February 2011, featuring classic Barclay James Harvest material.

"North” continues the Barclay James Harvest story and is the strongest work to emerge from the band in many years, a true group effort by John Lees, Craig Fletcher, Jez Smith and Kevin Whitehead. The album release is supported by an extended UK tour by the band in November 2013.

Rare Bird
Rare Bird are perhaps best remembered for having the distinction of being the first act to be released on Tony Stratton Smith's gloriously eclectic label Charisma records (also the home of GENESIS, THE NICE and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR to name but a few) and for their excellent 1970 hit single 'Sympathy'. Like fellow future Charisma stable mates Van Der Graaf Generator, Rare Bird was formed around the principle of keyboard dominated progressive rock which eschewed the use of guitars. In December 1969 their eponymous debut album was released to great critical acclaim, (also becoming a US Billboard chart hit) and was followed in January 1970 by the release of 'Sympathy' b/w 'Devil's High Concern'. The single reached the UK Top 30 and was a subsequent major hit throughout Europe.

Genesis (2CD)
NEW REMASTERED 2 DISC EXPANDED & REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC DEBUT ALBUM BY THE GODS – FEATURING KEN HENSLEY & LEE KERSLAKE
FEATURING BOTH MONO & STEREO MIXES OF THE ALBUM ALONG WITH FOUR EXTRA BONUS TRACKS – THE FIRST EVER RELEASE OF THE ALBUM MONO MIX ON CD
REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL EMI MASTER TAPES
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the debut album by THE GODS. Formed in Hatfield in 1965 by future Rolling Stones guitarist MICK TAYLOR, the band also featured KEN HENSLEY (keyboards, guitar, vocals), JOHN GLASCOCK (bass, vocals), JOE KONAS (guitar, vocals) and LEE KERSLAKE (drums). Originally a blues based band, in 1967 Mick Taylor departed to join JOHN MAYALL’S BLUESBREAKERS and during this period GREG LAKE joined the band briefly, replacing John Glascock on bass. By 1968 the band had signed to EMI’s Columbia label and had settled into a line-up that saw John Glascock return to the band. By this time The Gods had embraced both Psychedelia and Progressive styles. "Genesis” was a fine album and is now rightly hailed as a classic of the late Psychedelic and early Progressive era.
This Esoteric Recordings expanded reissue includes the original stereo and mono mixes of the album (the first time the mono mix has appeared on CD), along with four bonus tracks comprising the A & B sides of the band’s singles of the time. These includes The Gods’ cover version of The Beatles’ ‘Hey Bulldog’ and their original classic ‘Real Love Guaranteed’. The reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original EMI master tapes and includes a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and a new essay.

Release Date: 28/1/2013
