ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic album "THE PEACOCK PARTY” by GORDON GILTRAP. For over forty years Gordon has enjoyed the well-deserved reputation as one of Britain’s greatest guitar players. He made his first recordings in the 1960s as folk artist, but by late 70s he had crossed into the Progressive Rock genre. A trio of albums on the Electric Records label earned Gordon much praise and an ever-increasing fan base. In 1979 the album "The Peacock Party” was released on the PVK label.  The tunes by Gordon are based on characters from the book "The Peacock Party" written by George E Ryder and illustrated by Alan Aldridge. This was a sequel to the somewhat better known "Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast". Aldridge designed many well-known covers for rock albums in the 1970s including "Captain Fantastic and The Dirt Brown Cowboy" for Elton John.

"THE PEACOCK PARTY” saw Gordon backed by a band of outstanding musicians such as JOHN G. PERRY (Bass), ROD EDWARDS (keyboards), RIC SANDERS (violin) and IAN MOSLEY (drums) and featured many outstanding tracks.

This Esoteric Recordings edition is newly remastered from the original tapes and includes four bonus tracks. The reissue also features a lavishly illustrated booklet with new essay and interview.

Tasty: Expanded Edition
•    With a career spanning five decades and numerous appearances in the charts and the music award circuit, Grammy Hall Of Fame inductee, Patti LaBelle sealed her fate as one of the great American Divas. Patti LaBelle started singing at church and later formed a singing group called Patti Labelle and the Bluebelles, later know as LaBelle. Patti and her group enjoyed many chart hits during their 15 years together including their number one, Allen Toussaint-produced gold selling single, Lady Marmalade. In 1977 Patti went solo and released her first solo album, Patti LaBelle, on Epic Records. Tasty, It’s Alright With Me and Released followed.

•    TASTY was produced by veteran hit maker David Rubinson and enjoyed an 8-week run of chart success in 1978, reaching #39 on the US R&B charts. The album’s singles, ‘Teach Me Tonight (Me Gusta Tu Baile),’ which features a young Sheila E. on percussion, and ‘Little Girls’ were both hit singles on the Billboard Soul chart whilst ‘Eyes In The Back Of My Head’ and ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’ were issued in Disco remix form and gathered a club audience. Both ‘Quiet Time’ and ‘Little Girls’ are constantly in Patti’s live tours even today.

•    After too many years out of print, BBR is proud to present this wonderfully repackaged and newly remastered expanded edition of Patti LaBelle’s TASTY complete with extensive liner notes with interviews and added bonus content. It’s a must for all soul, funk and disco fans.

If You Want Me: Expanded Edition
•    CD DEBUT OF CLASSIC SOUL ALBUM FROM ARETHA’S SISTER!

•    CAROLYN ANN FRANKLIN spent her singing and song writing career somewhat in the shadow of her hugely successful sister, The First Lady Of Soul, Aretha, having followed both her older siblings Aretha and Erma from the church into a secular recording career in the mid to late sixties. Although, Like Erma, Carolyn had modest success compared to Aretha she recorded with her sister many times and proved herself as an excellent songwriter penning hits for Aretha such as ‘Ain't No Way,’ ‘Save Me’ and the stunning ‘Angel.’ From 1969-1973 Franklin released three albums in produced by Jimmy Radcliffe which provided the R&B hits ‘All I Want To Be Is Your Woman’ and ‘It's True I'm Gonna Miss You,’ proving Carolyn was an exceptional vocalist in her own right.

•    IF YOU WANT ME was Franklin's fourth and last studio album released in 1976 on RCA. Carolyn displays incredibly subtlety and control on this excellent album on which also she provides many of the song writing credits. ‘From The Bottom Of My Heart (To The Bottom Of Yours)’ sets the smooth, honeyed tone for the rest of this under-appreciated album. The beautifully sung and arranged ballad ‘I Can't Help My Feeling So Blue’ should have dented the R&B chart but went under the radar. Title track ‘If You Want Me’ and ‘You Can Have My Soul’ are superb examples of 'loose but tight' 70's soul with progressive rhythms and plenty of feeling. Closer ‘Deal With It,’ a classic slice of funky soul, adds a little kick at the end and tips it's hat to sister Aretha's ‘Rock Steady’ with its chopping rhythms and ‘There It Is’ refrain.

•    BBR is proud to present Carolyn Franklin's IF YOU WANT ME. This expanded and re-mastered edition comes complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus material and is a must have for all R&B, Soul and Funk fans out there!

1.    FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART (TO THE BOTTOM OF YOURS)
