Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the legendary "Neil’s Heavy Concept Album” by NEIL, alias Nigel Planer.

Neil, the long suffering Hippy character from the hit TV series "The Young Ones” enjoyed a huge hit with a comic cover version of Traffic’s ‘Hole in My Shoe’ and with this "heavy” album. "Neil’s Heavy Concept Album” was a splendid parody that saw him cover songs such as ‘My White Bicycle’, ‘The Gnome’ and ‘Golf Girl’ and featured contributions from such respected musicians as Dave Stewart (from Progressive band Egg, who also produced the album), Barbara Gaskin, Gavin Harrison, Pip Pyle, Jakko Jakszyk and Jimmy Hastings. Comedians Stephen Fry, Roland Rivron and Dawn French also made appearances.

Levitation (3CD expanded limited edition)
Released on the 28/09/09. ATOMHENGE, the home of HAWKWIND's catalogue from 1976 1997, continue their series of definitive reissued editions of these classic albums with the LIMITED 3CD DELUXE EDITION release of LEVITATION.

Recorded in 1980 and featuring GINGER BAKER, the album was a classic work and spawned an equally legendary tour. Although Baker's tenure with Hawkwind was brief, a concert at Lewisham Odeon in December 1980 was recorded by a mobile unit. Now remixed from the original multitrack masters this deluxe edition includes the entire concert (during which Sci-Fi author Michael Moorcock guested). This edition of LEVITATION is limited to 3000 units and will then be reduced to just a single CD release. This is the ultimate release of this classic album.

Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music
Atomhenge, the home of Hawkwind's catalogue from 1976–1997, begin their series of definitive reissued editions of these classic albums with the release of 'Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music'.

The album, originally released in 1976, marked the return to the band of Robert Calvert who would be a major influence on the creative direction of the band lyrically and as vocalist. Including such classic tracks as ‘Steppenwolf' and ‘Reefer Madness,' this reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes (a first for any CD issue of this album) and features previously unreleased mixes of 'Back on the Streets' and 'The Dream of Isis' along with the 1976 single ‘Kerb Crawler' and ‘Honky Dorky' as bonus tracks.

Get Down: Expanded Edition
•    HUGELY POPULAR DISCO CLASSIC RETURNS TO CD!

•    Gene Chandler (born Eugene Dixon in 1937 in Chicago, Illinois.) is best remembered for the R&B and Pop #1 "Duke Of Earl” on which he sang lead vocal as part of the doo-wop group The Dukays. Chandler is hugely admired by soul fans as one of the leading names from the Chicago scene along with Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield, the latter of which often wrote for and produced the singer.

•    Having enjoyed a string of R&B hits through the 60’s and 70’s on various labels including a cover of James Brown’s "There Was A Time” (R&B #22) and "Groovy Situation” (R&B #8) Chandler moved on to become executive vice president at Chi Sound Records, where he released four disco funk albums between ’78 and ‘81.

•    GET DOWN (R&B #12/Pop #47) was the first of these albums and was released in 1978. This great set of funky disco tracks spawned two R&B hit singles with "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same” reaching #51, and the title track "Get Down”, his biggest hit in 13 years, peaking at #3, Pop #53, and going all the way to #11 in the UK.

•    BBR is very proud to present GET DOWN, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.

•    GET DOWN is absolutely essential listening for all Soul, Funk and Disco fans.
