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.

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

Decca Singles 1975-79
· Every A and B side issued by "guitarist’s guitarist” John Miles for Decca Records between 1975 and 1979 is what you’ll find on this 17 track release

 · Includes the world-wide smash "Music” as well as John’s other hit singles – "Highfly” (No.17), "Remember Yesterday” (No.32) and "Slow Down” (No.10)

· The wall of picture sleeves featured in the booklet will leave even the richest John Miles collector in the poor house!

Press:-

"This collection of music of the past (no music of the future; that would be impossible sci-fi) showcases Miles as a top talent who simply needed a firm musical direction.”  

-Geoff Barton / Classic Rock May 2012  

"With all four singer/songwriter/guitarist John Miles’ Decca albums already released by sister label Lemon, the 7T’s imprint releases one which is arguably stronger than the others, as it rounds up the 17 songs Miles released as singles A- and B-sides during his Decca tenure.”

Oceans Of Time
UK five-piece rock band TOUCHSTONE are excited to reveal they have signed an exclusive deal with Hear No Evil Recordings/Cherry Red Records for their much-anticipated 4th studio album ‘Oceans Of Time’, which is due to be released on 7th October 2013.

The release of the new album will be supported by a 6-date UK tour in October, where they will be joined by co-headliners Von Hertzen Brothers from Finland.

The band comment: "TOUCHSTONE are delighted to have signed to Hear No Evil Recordings for the release of our new album, Oceans Of Time. We are very much looking forward to working alongside Hugh Gilmour, the label manager, and to being a part of the bigger Cherry Red Records stable.”

‘Oceans Of Time’ features 11 tracks recorded and produced at Outhouse Studios by renowned producer John Mitchell (You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis, Funeral For A Friend), and is the successor to Touchstone’s previous  albums: The City Sleeps (2011), Wintercoast (2009) and Discordant Dreams (2007).

On this eagerly awaited new album, the band continue their "Wintercoast” story with the dynamic, moving epic title track ‘Oceans Of Time’; the sequel to the title tracks of Wintercoast and The City Sleeps. Another familiar theme comes from ‘Shadow’s End’, the final part of the Shadow trilogy, which started with the track ‘Shadow’, from Discordant Dreams.

Fans will enjoy a more guitar-orientated sound from Oceans Of Time than previous albums due to the nature of the writing process. All the music is written by Touchstone, with lyrics by lead vocalist Kim "Elkie” Seviour, and keys man Robert Cottingham, whilst guitarist Adam Hodgson again designed the cover artwork.
