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.

Crawler / Snake Rattle and Roll
Field a not in Database

20 mouth-watering servings of classic British [with a fair helping of American] rock from the mid/late-seventies. The band was formed by the remaining members of Back Street Crawler after the demise of their ex-Free, legendary main man and all-round guitar hero, Paul Kossoff. Our Broadside release brings together their two fantastic Epic/CBS albums from 1977 and 1978 – in their entirety. This is the UK/European debut of these albums on CD, and the first time that they have appeared anywhere together as a complete – and specially priced – package. Also includes a bonus track: the single version of ‘Stone Cold Sober'.
Our Price: £9.95

Strange fruit
Strange Fruit' is a great undiscovered work of the acoustic rock / classic rock genres, cited by some as a minor masterpiece. In the late 60's Gary Farr made the transition from leader of R&B outfit The T-Bones to a noted singer-songwriter. Recording an album for Marmalade Records, Farr then signed to CBS Records in 1970, recording this sole album for the label. Sessions featured contributions from RICHARD THOMPSON on lead guitar and leading lights of the underground MIGHTY BABY. Unavailable on CD for many years, 'Strange Fruit' is a record made by an often overlooked singer-songwriter made available once more by Esoteric Recordings and is certain to appeal to all who adore acoustic music both melancholic and uplifting. The reissue also features the first ever CD appearance of the single edit of 'Revolution of the Season'. Our Price: £10.95

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
