Beyond The Morning : Unreleased Recordings 1972-1974 - Armada

Beyond The Morning : Unreleased Recordings 1972-1974
72 mins worth of prime prog jazz rock all previously unreleased. Armada were led by legendary jazz multi instrumentalist Sammy Rimington. Today known as one of the great New Orleans jazz style Clarinettists.Original material written by Sammy and wife Nina was recorded at RG Jones studio through 1972, 1973 and 1974. However, despite a follow up deal with the MAM label only two singles were released, and both of those newly recorded pop songs which bore little relation to the parent group. Thus all original session tapes have remained on the shelf until now.The concept was progressive music under the influence of King Crimson, early Genesis, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Zappa and jazz. They mixed jazz with classical music stylings such as those of Villa Lobos. Armada played regularly at the Marquee and Lyceum in London, toured with Wishbone Ash and Rare Bird, and were written about in Melody Maker.

Night music
Darryl Way was founder member of the legendary Curved Air, a group that brought Ways strident electric violin playing to the fore on a string of hit albums. In 1973, Way formed Wolf, a progressive outfit featuring guitarist John Etheridge, bassist Dek Messecar (later in Caravan) and drummer Ian Mosley (now in Marillion). The music was a heady mixture of styles and secured the band a contract with Deccas Deram label. Night Music was the final album in the Wolf trilogy and perhaps the finest. With the band augmented by former IF vocalist John Hodgkinson, the album is a lost classic of 70'srock. Our Price: £10.95

Go
Stomu Yamashta is a master percussionist who studied jazz drumming at the Berklee School Of Jazz. In the 1970's he recorded a string of innovative albums for Island records which utilised the talents of such leading musicians as Hugh Hopper, Maurice Pert, Steve Winwood, Michael Shrieve and Klaus Schulze, fusing his percussion talents with jazz, electronic and classical music to creat an ambient form of music all of his own. His music has been used by the Royal Ballet. Originally released in April 1976, 'Go' is perhaps Yamashta's finest achievement and also featured collaborators Steve Winwood and Michael Shrieve along with artists such as Klaus Schulze and ex-Traffic and future Can bassist Rosko Gee.

· BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever UK release of the classic 1977 self- titled debut album by American Progressive Rock group HAPPY THE MAN.
Formed in Harrisonburg, Virginia in 1973, the band was influenced by British progressive groups such as Genesis and King Crimson. By 1976 they came to the ear of PETER GABRIEL who considered utilising the band on his first solo album. Although this failed to materialise, the band came to the attention of Arista Records, securing a deal the same year. With a line-up of STANLEY WHITAKER (Guitars, Vocals), KIT WATKINS (Keyboards), FRANK WYATT (Sax, Flute, Keyboards), RICK KENNELL (Bass) and MIKE BECK (Drums), the band recorded their first album under the production supervision of KEN SCOTT (who had worked with Supertramp and David Bowie).
