Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of "THE CONTENDER”, the 1978 solo album from JIM CAPALDI. "The Contender” was Jim’s first album for Polydor Records and the title track of the album featured in the film of the same name and featured the late PAUL KOSSOFF (of Free and Back Street Crawler) on lead guitar. In America the album appeared in a different form under the title "Daughter of the Night” with a slightly different track listing which included additional material not released in the UK. These tracks are featured as bonus material on this expanded and remastered reissue.

This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features a lavish illustrated booklet with new essay that restores the original album artwork.

Prog Is Not A Four Letter Word
Whoever came up with the over-pretentious, collective term "Progressive Rock" couldn’t have been less forward thinking. Prog rock in its truest form was not a ‘restrictive’ genre - it was a movement that unified ALL genres.

Forget such flamboyant cover stars such as Genesis, Yes and ELP, what of the truly progressive international rock musicians who started their own hybrid-hurricanes outside the rectangular iris of Prog's media storm? What about the unintentionally progressive musicians from the far reaches of the globe who were forced to create their own brand of psychedelic rock in a country shielded from the influence of the western world? And why don’t we spare a thought (and some needle time), for the culturally progressive crusaders carrying the rock-music flag in the face of political adversity risking social ostrasization or even death?

Even though most of the 15 tracks on this compilation were recorded over 30 years ago they still, individually embody a wide range of challenging progressive musical ideas which are as relevant today as they were when the vinyl first came off the press in each of their scattered countries of origin.

"Prog Is Not A Four Letter Word" is the follow-up to ANDY VOTEL (TWISTED NERVE)’s critically acclaimed "Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word" (CDDELAY01), which caused quite a stir earlier this year.

The majority of these tracks have never before been on CD, many appear here for the first time away from their highly sought after, and stupendously rare, original releases.

Uneasy Listening
Released 27/04/09. Founder member and keyboard player of Barclay James Harvest, Woolly Wolstenholme was arguably the symphonic and 'progressive' influence within the band. His Mellotron playing and songs graced many classic BJH albums between 1970 - 1978. Departing in 1979 for a solo career he recorded the album 'Maestoso' for Polydor before leaving music after an aborted second album. Teaming up with John Lees in his incarnation of BJH in 1998 he also resurrected his solo career with the band Maestoso. This collection draws from his early solo work and his acclaimed albums 'One Drop in Dry World' (2004), 'Grim' (2006) and 'Caterwauling' (2007). Featuring two previously unreleased tracks, this collection features Woolly's finest work over two CDs. Our Price: £10.95
