Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of an official re-mastered edition of the debut album by legendary Welsh rock band Sassafras, "EXPECTING COMPANY”.

Formed in South Wales in 1970, the band signed to George Martin’s AIR Productions in 1972 with a line-up of TERRY BENNETT (Vocals), DAI SHELL (Lead Guitar), RALPH EVANS (Lead Guitar), RICKY JOHN HOLT (Bass) and CONGO JONES (Drums). Utilising to great effect the twin lead guitar approach of Dai Shell and Ralph Evans, Sassafras released their debut album on Polydor Records in 1973.

One of the great unsung rock albums of the early 1970s, "Expecting Company” has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes both sides of a rare single as bonus tracks. This Esoteric Recordings reissue restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay.

•    This CD is released 28th April and will not be shipped prior to this date.

Free Ride
This 12 track collection features the 10 tracks of the original album plus 2 bonus tracks. The album was originally released in 1978 and is available on CD for the first time. This collection features the album versions of the band's two hit singles, Dancing In The City #3 and Coming Home #39. The bonus tracks are the 12" mix versions of the 1987 reworking of their timeless classic Dancing In The City - Summer City '87.

The CD booklet will include comprehensive sleeve notes and a full UK singles discography. Julian Marshall (keyboardist) and Kit Hain (vocalist and bass player) met whilst at the innovative boarding school, Dartington Hall. They signed to Harvest Records, a label created by EMI Records and their first single Dancing In The City was an international hit, peaking at #3 in the UK whilst topping the charts in Australia and South Africa. The follow up Coming Home was also a hit and prompted the release of their debut album "Free Ride". The band decided to go their separate ways in 1979, with Kit Hain releasing 2 albums before becoming a successful songwriter for other artists with Cher, Fleetwood Mac and Cyndi Lauper amongst others covering her songs.

Julian Marshall became a member of Flying Lizards who enjoyed a top 10 hit in 1979 with Money (That's What I Want) and then was one half of the duo Eye To Eye who enjoyed minor chart success in the U.S.

Megaton
A thrilling, no-holds-barred, heavy rock treatment
of a clutch of riff-based but fairly commercial pop tunes,
Megaton'ssole album has plenty of admirers these days. Perhaps
this should be a rock label staple, but the LPs origins are more pop
than that with more akin to those ranks of over looked production
library classics recorded for one purpose and taking on a different
guise and importance to collectors years later. For Megaton is
the creative inspiration of vocal harmony leader Les Humphries (as in
The Les Humphries Singers, big hit makers in early 70'sGermany) and his
writing partner/right hand LHS man, Jimmy Bilsbury. Perhaps
having the likes of future Uriah Heep vocalist John Lawton in the midst
of the LHS was an inspiration, but whatever, Humphries nose for a
commercial opportunity sniffed out the Free, Led Zep hard rock/ blues
rock market and he duly delivered. A 1971 Deram release, first in
Germany, other territories later inc. South America, and the UK -where
today such a pressing can set you back over £700 ! RPM presents
it'sfirst legitimate reissue on CD.
