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.

Waiters on the Dance' is a lost classic of the Progressive era.

Based on the first book of his 'Lemmus' trilogy, the album was conceived as the first of three telling the musical story of his literary creation…

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.

A Life Within A Day DELUXE EDITION
THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM BY SQUACKETT – THE COLLABORATIVE PROJECT BY YES FOUNDER & BASS GUITARIST CHRIS SQUIRE & FORMER GENESIS GUITARIST & SOLO ARTIST STEVE HACKETT DELUXE LIMITED HARDBACK 2 DISC EDITION WITH BOTH STEREO & 5.1 SURROUND SOUND MIXES OF THE MAJOR PROGRESSIVE ROCK ALBUM OF 2012

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. SQUACKETT is the hugely anticipated collaborative album project between two legends of Progressive Rock, Chris Squire and Steve Hackett. With progressive rock (in its many forms) now seemingly more popular than ever, this collaboration from members of two of the godfathers of the genre is hugely exciting. Chris Squire has appeared on every YES album since 1969 and is widely regarded as one of the most influential bass guitarists of all time. Now an established solo artist, Steve Hackett first came to prominence as the guitarist with GENESIS. He was with the band from 1970 to 1977 and played on six studio albums and featured on three live albums before leaving to concentrate on his solo career. The two met when Chris Squire was working on a solo album and needed some guitar parts. Chris was put in touch with Steve and through these sessions the idea for SQUACKETT was born. Over four years in the making, the "Squackett” album is very much more than the sum of its parts. "It was very much about a bunch of pals swapping notes and anecdotes,” says Hackett "I think the material is simple and direct.” "It has a flavour to it that is reminiscent of a few things from different artists,” says Squire. "There is some clever Prog Rock stuff on the album, some jazzy bits, but there are parts that have vocal harmonies like Crosby, Stills and Nash” – SQUACKETT is THE major Progressive Rock release of 2012 and this DELUXE TWO DISC LIMITED EDITION of the album features a CD of the Stereo mix of the album and a DVD of the 5.1 Surround Sound mix. It is presented in the form of a CD sized hardback book.
