Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the official remastered edition of "Softsword”, the album inspired by the life of the English King John and the story of the Magna Carta, recorded in 1991.

The album came to life following a commission Rick received to compose music for the finale of the 1991 Dickens Festival at Rochester on Medway in Kent. Rick subsequently adapted the themes he had written for this event and developed them into songs and instrumental pieces. The resulting album featured guest musicians Chrissie Hammond (Vocals), David Paton (Guitars and Bass) and Annabel Blakeney (Gemshorn) and took its title from the nickname given to King John by medieval English Barons.

Unavailable for some years, "Softsword – King John & the Magna Carta” has been newly re-mastered and features an illustrated booklet with a new sleeve design and continues the series of official RICK WAKEMAN releases on Esoteric Recordings.

This product is released June 30 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Bad Attitude: 30th Anniversary Edition
•    "Bad Attitude” is Meat Loaf’s fourth studio album. Representing an upswing in the singer’s career, the album features four singles; ‘Nowhere Fast’, ‘Modern Girl’, ‘Surf's Up’ and ‘Piece Of The Action’.

•    After the phenomenal success of debut LP "Bat Out Of Hell” in 1977 (34 million copies and counting), Meat Loaf followed it with 1981’s "Dead Ringer”, another sizeable hit, with both albums showcasing the mercurial song writing talents of Jim Steinman. Having then parted company with Steinman, 1983’s "Midnight At The Lost And Found” found the singer in somewhat of a commercial dip, until 1984’s "Bad Attitude”. It features two Steinman penned tunes, ‘Surf’s Up’, previously recorded for Jim Steinman’s solo debut "Bad For Good” in 1981 plus ‘Nowhere Fast’, which had originally been written for the soundtrack to the movie "Streets Of Fire”.

•    There are also two notable duets on this record; The Who’s Roger Daltrey appears on the title track, whilst Clare Torry, who is probably best known for her vocals on Pink Floyd’s "Dark Side Of The Moon”, duets on ‘Modern Girl’.

•    This edition is packaged in a digi-pak with extensive liner notes, 16 page booklet, plus plenty of rare artwork and memorabilia.

TRACK LIST

1.    BAD ATTITUDE (Duet With Roger Daltrey)
2.    MODERN GIRL (Duet With Clare Torry)
3.    NOWHERE FAST
4.    SURF'S UP
5.    PIECE OF THE ACTION
6.    JUMPIN' THE GUN (Duet With Zee Carling)

My Kind O' Lovin'
•    A colourful, multifarious and formidable listening experience, with hints of melodic hard rock and early prog, featuring Simon Philips (Toto) and the vintage vocals of John Lawton (ex-Uriah Heep) and Joseph Williams (Toto).

•    Strong melodies with acoustic patterns and impressive vocals with undiminished power – the best thing John Lawton has been involved with ever since Heep’s glory and his lately announced career peak with the same author’s ‘The Power of Mind’ album from 2012.

•    Pulling up a chair at Classic Rock Revisited 2012 Best Releases with Intelligent Music Project I - ‘The Power of Mind’ producer Milen Vrabevski is setting a helluva high horizon of expectations with his Intelligent Music Project II - ‘My Kind O’Lovin’.

•    Simon Phillips is an English producer and prolific session drummer, and has played with The Who, Judas Priest, Jeff Beck, Mike Oldfield, Gary Moore and many others.

•    Joseph Williams was part of four Toto albums – Fahrenheit (1986), The Seventh One (1988), Toto XX (1988) and Falling in Between (2006).

•    John Lawton was featured on Uriah Heep’s albums Innocent Victim (1977), Firefly (1977) and Fallen Angel (1978) through Live ’79.

It's Just Begun / Phase Two
•    As soon as you hear the opening riff to the Jimmy Castor Bunch’s ‘It’s Just Begun’ you know you are in for one hell of a Funky ride; often sampled but never bettered! Robinsongs have packaged the "It’s Just Begun” album with the band’s second album "Phase Two” to give you that fantastic Funk experience.

•    This package features the million selling single Troglodyte (Cave Man)’ an absolute phenomenon of its time, and the "Phase Two” album features ‘Say Leroy (The Creature From The Black Lagoon Is Your Father)’ which was very much in the same vein as ‘Troglodyte.’

•    Both albums were originally released in 1972 and "It’s Just Begun” reached the Top 30 on the Billboard Pop Charts.

•    This package also features sleeve notes from archivist Keith Munro.
