EDITION OF THE CLASSIC ALBUM BY THE GODS – FEATURING KEN HENSLEY & LEE
FROM THE ORIGINAL EMI MASTER TAPES
FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly
remastered edition of the second and final album by THE GODS. Formed in
Hatfield in 1965 by future Rolling Stones guitarist MICK TAYLOR, the band also
featured KEN HENSLEY (keyboards, guitar, vocals), JOHN GLASCOCK (bass, vocals),
JOE KONAS (guitar, vocals) and LEE KERSLAKE (drums). Originally a blues based
band, in 1967 Mick Taylor departed to join JOHN MAYALL’S BLUESBREAKERS and
during this period GREG LAKE joined the band briefly, replacing John Glascock
on bass. By 1968 the band had signed to EMI’s Columbia label and had settled into
a line-up that saw John Glascock return to the band. By this time The Gods had
embraced both Psychedelia and Progressive styles.
In 1968 the band released their first album for
EMI, "Genesis” (also issued by Esoteric Recordings this month). "To Samuel A
Son” was the band’s second album and was a further progression in their style.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly
remastered from the original EMI master tapes and includes a booklet that fully
restores the original album artwork and a new essay.
