Listen To The Flowers Grow - Flowerpot Men

Listen To The Flowers Grow
On the 40th Anniversary of the summer of love and flower power classic Lets Go To San Francisco we present the story behind the song and the group. An interesting story unfolds as the studio recordings of John Carter and team take on a life as a real band, which brought in a further crop of outstanding performers. We begin with the build up pre- …San Francisco songs by group members such as Neil Landon, John Carter, Russ Alquist , through the Rain Rain Rain recording which used the Mellotron to such great effect and prefaced its later use by Carter on the hit just a couple of months later, onto the hit, and the various attempts at a follow up using different artist names.

The subsequent live group was led by vocalist Tony Burrows, but at times included future Deep Purple members Jon Lord and Nick Simper in the backing band. Our sleeve notes have new interviews with most of the writers and artists involved talking of their experiences with the group. Previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions, original mono versions, tracks unreleased at the time , all combine to make this a collectors gem, and a totally worthy celebration of the 40th anniversary.

It’s Five O’Clock
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce that the reissues of the Aphrodite’s Child albums "End of the World" and "It’s Five O’Clock" will now be remastered under the supervision of Vangelis himself. The Maestro will also supervise the entire artwork package of both albums. We at Esoteric are honoured to have Vangelis’ involvement, making our reissues of these classic titles the first CD editions to be endorsed by the Maestro. As release dates were set before Vangelis’ involvement in these projects, we have postponed further shipping of these titles for approximately four to five weeks until Vangelis’ remastered versions are completed and ready for shipment and distribution, when they will become the official versions of these classic albums. Further news will be posted as soon as we have it. It's Five O'clock by Greek Psych / Prog legends Aphrodite's Child. Formed in 1967 by keyboard player Vangelis, the band also featured Demisroussos on bass and vocals and Lucas Sideras on Drums. Their classic second album was released in 1969 and featured the international hit from which the album took its name. The LP revealed a more experimental side to the band s nature with such Psychedelic gems as Funky Mary and Let Me Love, Let Me Live. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and includes six bonus tracks which were released as three singles in 1969 and 1970, including a rare Italian only release. Our Price: £10.95
