The Incredible Journey Of The Original Hurdy Gurdy Man - Mac MacLeod

The Incredible Journey Of The Original Hurdy Gurdy Man
Mac Macleod's incredible musical journey starts in
the smokey folk clubs of the early sixties, where he appeared alongside
Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Maddy Prior (as Mac & Maddy), Mick
Softley (as Soft Cloud) and Donovan. He moved on to garage rock and full
blown psychedelia, in groups such as the Other Side and The Exploding
Mushroom. Showing his friend Donovan some finger-picking guitar
techniques, they busked around the West Country in 1964, before
accompanying the tousled troubadour during his Pye years, and playing
the NME pollwinner's concert in 1965. In 1968 Donovan repaid his
friendship with a song, Hurdy Gurdy Man, written specially for Mac and
his group Hurdy Gurdy. They performed their power version for Donovan at
his Hertfordshire home, influencing the bard who adopted their electric
fuzz for his next single.Mac's journey was to take him around
Britain, and across Sweden and Denmark, where he first formed Hurdy
Gurdy. The group became an underground favourite and went on to headline
at Middle Earth, supporting Pink Floyd at the same venue. The
forthcoming anthology contains all of Mac's rare recordings, from the
acoustic folky beginnings through a succession of one-off groups, the
sitar-drenched Amber, two previously unheard blistering tracks from
Hurdy Gurdy themselves, and even a guest appearance with a fledgling
post-Zombies: Argent.Bringing the collection completely
up-to-date are four tracks by Mac's present band Silverlining. Their
brand of swirling folk-blues can be heard on The Cuckoo and Donovan's
Season Of The Witch, while Mac's new take of Hurdy Gurdy Man is nothing
short of brilliant.In the 60's the press were fond of claiming that
Donovan's influences were Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie. Whilst an admirer
of these performers Donovan actually said in Beat Instrumental: "The
man who encouraged and helped me most was a fellow called Keith 'Mac'
Macleod, I've known him for about three years, and he's taught me
everything from chord progressions on the guitar, to how to appreciate
folk and real blues".Now in the Noughties Donovan and Mac have
become reacquainted. They are planning to work together again, probably
on Donovan's next set of live dates, when promoting the release of the
forthcoming EMI box set of his work.

The Magnificent Moodies: 50th Anniversary Deluxe 2CD Remastered Edition
•    OFFICIAL DELUXE 2 CD 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE MOODY BLUES DEBUT ALBUM
•    REMASTERED FROM THE FIRST GENERATION MASTER TAPES FOR THE FIRST TIME
•    WITH 43 BONUS TRACKS – 29 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED
•    INCLUDES A POSTER, THREE POSTCARDS, A LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED BOOK WITH PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN PHOTOS & NEW ESSAY BY MARK POWELL


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of the debut album by The Moody Blues, "The Magnificent Moodies”.

Now associated as being pioneers of progressive orchestral rock, the Moody Blues had another life between 1964 – 1966, as one of Britain’s finest Rhythm and Blues influenced acts. With a line-up of DENNY LAINE (Guitar, Vocals, Harmonica), RAY THOMAS (Vocals, Harmonica, Flute), MIKE PINDER (Keyboards, Vocals), CLINT WARWICK (Bass, Vocals) and GRAEME EDGE (Drums), the band signed to a London based management company who leased recordings to Decca Records. Their second single, a cover version of Bessie Banks’ "Go Now!” was a huge chart success across the world. Their debut album, "The Magnificent Moodies” was released in1965 to great acclaim and tours with The Beatles eventually led them to become part of Brian Epstein’s management stable. The band continued to record a series of singles, enjoying further chart hits in the UK and Europe, before Clint Warwick departed to be replaced by ROD CLARK and then finally dissolving in the Autumn of 1966 and reinventing themselves stylistically with a new line-up including JUSTIN HAYWARD and JOHN LODGE.

This official 50th anniversary Deluxe edition includes the original album, re-mastered from the first generation master tapes, along with all the singles the band recorded between 1964 and 1966. Notably this collection includes 29 previously unreleased bonus tracks, including the band’s entire July 1964 sessions at Olympic studios in London produced by ALEX MURRAY, all surviving BBC radio sessions recorded in 1965 and nine tracks recorded in the Summer of 1966 with producer Denny Cordell for a proposed but unreleased second album (all newly mixed from the original four-track master tapes).

The set is packaged in a clamshell box, with a lavishly illustrated booklet (with previously unseen photographs designed by Phil Smee) and essay written by Mark Powell, three rare promotional postcards and a poster. This edition of "The Magnificent Moodies” is the definitive statement on the formative years of one of Britain’s greatest bands.

Please Note: This title is released November 24 and will not be dispatched before this date.
