A Life Within A Day LP - Squackett

A Life Within A Day LP
LIMITED EDITION GATEFOLD VINYL LP

RELEASE THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM BY SQUACKETT – THE COLLABORATIVE PROJECT BY YES FOUNDER & BASS GUITARIST CHRIS SQUIRE & FORMER GENESIS GUITARIST & SOLO ARTIST STEVE HACKETT. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. SQUACKETT is the hugely anticipated collaborative album project between two legends of Progressive Rock, Chris Squire and Steve Hackett.


With progressive rock (in its many forms) now seemingly more popular than ever, this collaboration from members of two of the godfathers of the genre is hugely exciting. Chris Squire has appeared on every YES album since 1969 and is widely regarded as one of the most influential bass guitarists of all time. Now an established solo artist, Steve Hackett first came to prominence as the guitarist with GENESIS. He was with the band from 1970 to 1977 and played on six studio albums and featured on three live albums before leaving to concentrate on his solo career. The two met when Chris Squire was working on a solo album and needed some guitar parts. Chris was put in touch with Steve and through these sessions the idea for SQUACKETT was born. Over four years in the making, the "Squackett” album is very much more than the sum of its parts. "It was very much about a bunch of pals swapping notes and anecdotes,” says Hackett "I think the material is simple and direct.” "It has a flavour to it that is reminiscent of a few things from different artists,” says Squire. "There is some clever Prog Rock stuff on the album, some jazzy bits, but there are parts that have vocal harmonies like Crosby, Stills and Nash” – SQUACKETT is THE major Progressive Rock release of 2012.


Release Date: 04/06/2012

A Grounding In Numbers (Vinyl Edition)
The brand new studio album by the legendary Van Der Graaf Generator. Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of the new Van Der Graaf Generator album, "A Grounding in Numbers”. The stunning new album is the band’s 12th studio record by the band and is their first since 2008. The album will be released as both a CD and a limited edition individually numbered vinyl LP edition (restricted to 2000 copies) and will be backed up by a short tour of the UK and some dates in Europe. In April 2010 Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans met up for intensive tracking sessions in Cornwall, arranging, rehearsing and recording the album in a week. Some of the pieces were already fully-formed songs; others, even at this stage, remained more sketches than fully realised works. Over the next months the tracks were overdubbed, edited and adapted by the band in their own studios. By September the project was ready to be mixed. Legendary producer Hugh Padgham agreed to take on this part of the process - the first time anyone outside the band had been entrusted such responsibility. After three weeks in Hugh’s London studio, Sofasound (which shares its name with Peter’s original home set-up), "A Grounding in Numbers” was completed. With a fantastic clarity and depth of sound and a helter-skelter stretch of tunes, "A Grounding...” sees VdGG pushing ever further forward into the twenty first century. Clearly, they know they’re a group with a certain history - but they are also an emphatically modern one.

Live
The legendary Curved Air recorded a string of innovative & classic albums in the 70'sto great acclaim, enjoying a global hit with Back Street Luv in 1971. Fronted by singer Sonja Kristina and featuring the violinist Darryl Way, by 1972 the line-up began to fracture and by 1973 the band had ground to a halt. Way formed the innovative Wolf, but in 1975 the Curved Air came together once more to tour Europe. The resulting live album is perhaps one of the bands finest, documenting all of their classic material. The Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re mastered from the original master tapes and is presented with a booklet featuring a new essay and photographs. See Curved Air at the Isle Of Wight festival in June 2008. Our Price: £10.95

Spinning Wheel
Formed in 1967 by ex-'Blues Project' member, Al Kooper, 'Blood Sweat and Tears' quickly became regarded as one of the most promising of all the late 60's rock bands. The pioneering fusion of jazz and rock captured the imagination of the critics and their first album 'Child is Father to the Man' became a sleeper hit. Organist, singer, Kooper had insisted on the status of band-leader but the other band members wanted a committed lead singer and by the end of the decade Kooper had been replaced by David Clayton-Thomas. The band released three more albums 'Blood Sweat and Tears 1,2 and 3', and, despite massive sales and chart success, they eventually alienated some early fans and music critics who thought they were selling out (they played on a State Department sponsored tour, appeared at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas and supplied the soundtrack to the movie comedy 'The Owl and the Pussycat').

By this time 'BS&T' had sold over 6 million albums but the ensuing turmoil led to the band splitting in 1978. However in 1980 David Clayton-Thomas reformed the group, went back on the road and recorded a final studio album 'Nuclear Blues'. This DVD features archive footage of that reformed Blood Sweat and Tears line-up live at the Civic Theatre in Halifax, UK on April 9th 1980. The line up is David Clayton-Thomas, Richard Martinez, David Piltch, Keith Seymour, Robert Economou, Stanley Cassidy and Vernon Dorge. Playing in front of a sellout audience the band perform many classics from their heyday demonstrating why, even today, they are celebrated as, not only the first, but the greatest jazz/rock fusion band of all time.

Live At Santa Monica
In 1967 Steve Winwood decided to leave the Spencer Davis Group – with whom he had enjoyed considerable worldwide success – and form his own band – the result was Traffic.

This new multi-talented group gained international success in the late 1960s and early 1970s, particularly in the USA where they attracted a large following. In Britain, they are remembered mostly for some memorable and groundbreaking singles and albums that scored high chart placings during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

It is without doubt fortunate that Island and Columbia filmed Traffic at the 3000 seat Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in 1972, when the band had just released their definitive album ‘John Barleycorn Must Die'.

A beautifully shot concert film, there are endless camera angles and close-ups of performers from virtually every perspective imaginable – with great shots of band members Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Rebop Kwakubaah and Jim Capaldi.
