Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the self-titled album by Panama Limited Jug Band. This collective of musicians formed in the late months of 1968 with a line-up of Gary Compton (harmonica), Liz Hanns (vocals), Brian Strachan (guitar), Ron Needs (mandolin) and Dennis Parker (lead vocals, guitar, banjo). The group soon found favour with DJ John Peel, an early champion of their work, and they became one of the first signings to EMI’s new underground label, Harvest. Their self-titled debut album was released in July 1969 (one of the first on the famous imprint) and has since become a highly sought after record by collectors, with an original copy now being valued at many hundreds of pounds.

Why should you buy this record ? I'll tell you why because Bronx Cheer are the happiest group in town. They make Mungo Jerry sound like manic depressives. The group are a left over from the fifties, gospellers of the good times. Basically a jug band, Bronx Cheer also have an irresistible brand of acoustic rock and roll. There's a touch of John Sebastian, a streak of Nilsson, a soupcon of the Temperance Seven. Formed originally in the early 1960's as The Jug Trust this band played the then lively folk club circuit. With writers Brian Cookman and John Reed in the band they were self-sufficient and released two singles through Parlophone. Changing their name to Bronx Cheer in 1968 they then hooked up with producer Barry Murray who doubled as A&R producer for Pye's Dawn label.

So in 1969 Bronx Cheer became beneficiaries of one of the labels 4 track maxi-single's, headed by Barrelhouse Player . A song title perfectly describing Bronx Cheer's musical leanings. Murray then produced the Cheers' first LP entitled Greatest Hits Volume 3. Sadly this was not prophetic and the Cheer were rather eclipsed by label mates and fellow Murray signed/produced artist Mungo Jerry. Bronx Cheer LP The album didn't make the charts but there was enough interest at the time to record a second LP, although politics were left it on the shelf. Thus those tracks receive their first airing here, and they are even more dynamic than the first LP!

The Going’s Easy
NEW EDITION OF THE CLASSIC SECOND ALBUM BY THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH
NEWLY REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL HARVEST RECORDS’ MASTER TAPES
WITH TWO RARE BONUS TRACKS
THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH were one of the more stylistically original signings to EMI’s legendary Progressive label Harvest. The band was formed in 1968 and featured brothers Garth and Norman Watt-Roy (who played guitar and bass respectively), vocalist, guitarist and flautist Colin Horton-Jennings, Mick Deacon on Organ, a horn section of Dick Hanson, Tex Philpotts and Ian Aitcheson and drummer Ron Prudence. The band began to take on board more "progressive” influences, incorporating rock, jazz and acoustic music into their sound.
An impressive live act, Greatest Show on Earth released their debut album in February 1970 adorned in a startling Hipgnosis designed sleeve. "The Going’s Easy”, released in November 1970, was an equally competent work that included the excellent rock track ‘Borderline’ and the acoustic ‘Magic Woman Touch’ (later covered by The Hollies). Upon the band’s demise Mike Deacon joined Vinegar Joe (fronted by Elkie Brooks and Robert Palmer), Garth Watt-Roy went on to perform and record with Fuzzy Duck. Norman Watt-Roy and John Turnball later became founder members of Ian Dury’s backing group, The Blockheads.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue features two bonus tracks, has been newly re-mastered from the original Harvest master tapes and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

Mr. Nice Guy / Classic Masters
Saxophonist/master musician, singer, songwriter and producer Ronnie Laws first began making an impact as a soloist with the 1975 release of his Blue Note album, "Pressure Sensitive.” By the start of the ‘80s, the Houston-born member of the musically prolific Laws family was topping the U.S. jazz album charts and building a solid audience among R&B fans on both sides of the Atlantic.
As part of its’ jazz/funk series, SoulMusic Records has combined one of Ronnie’s most sought after albums, 1983’s MR. NICE GUY with the 1985 release CLASSIC MASTERS which contains a number of Ronnie’s most enduring recordings from the ‘70s and early ‘80s.
A U.S.Top 10 jazz and Top 30 R&B best-seller, MR. NICE GUY focused on Ronnie’s vocals as much as it did his prowess as an instrumentalist: the album contained the Top 40 R&B hit, ‘In The Groove’ (a favourite among UK rare groove lovers), the synth-driven title track and a hip cover of Jr. Walker’s ‘What Does It Take (To Win Your Love).’ The album was reissued in the early 2000’s as a limited edition but has been out of print for several years.
As its’ name implies, CLASSIC MASTERS includes some of Ronnie’s most memorable recordings including his original of ‘Always There’ (1976), later covered by Side Effect and Incognito; ‘Friends And Strangers,’ the title cut of his 1977 best-selling album; and ‘Every Generation,’ Ronnie’s highest-charting U.S. R&B single. The track ‘City Girl’ (a Top 40 R&B hit) was recorded specifically for CLASSIC MASTERS. Includes notes by U.S. writer Jeff Lorez with new quotes from Ronnie.

Canal Trip – An Anthology 1969–1974 2CD
NEWLY REMASTERED 2 CD ANTHOLOGY OF THE BEST OF LEGENDARY DANISH BAND BURNIN RED IVANHOE RECORDED BETWEEN 1969 & 1974
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered anthology featuring the best of the recorded output by the legendary Danish band BURNIN RED IVANHOE, drawn from the recordings made for Sonet Records between 1969 and 1974.
Burnin Red Ivanhoe are legends of the Danish Progressive Rock scene of the late 60s / early 70s. Formed in Copenhagen in 1967, the band initially featured the talents of KARSTEN VOGEL (Saxophones), STEEN CLAESSON (Guitar, Vocals), STEEN LANGE (Bass) and BO THRIGE ANDERSEN (Drums). Signing to Sonet Records in Denmark in December 1969, the band issued their first album "M 144” in 1969. Over the next few years the band’s line-up varied, but the string of albums such as "Burnin Red Ivanhoe”, "WWW”, "Miley Smile / Stage Recall” and "Right On” released between 1969 and 1974 gained many admirers throughout the world, including John Peel (who signed the band to his Dandelion label). Burnin Red Ivanhoe’s unique fusion of Jazz, Rock and the Avant Garde was as imaginative as anything emerging from the embryonic German rock scene of the time and remains impressive forty years later.
This anthology has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features an illustrated booklet with new essay.
