Riding On The Crest Of A Slump: Remastered Edition - Ellis

Riding On The Crest Of A Slump: Remastered Edition
•    NEWLY REMASTERED CD RELEASE FOR THIS CLASSIC ROCK ALBUM FROM 1972 BY THE BRITISH ROCK BAND ELLIS
•    PRODUCED BY ROGER DALTREY
•    REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL EPIC RECORDS MASTER TAPES
•    BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & LINER NOTES

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly re-mastered CD release of the classic 1972 debut album by the British rock outfit, ELLIS. Formed in December 1971, the band was the brainchild of former LOVE AFFAIR vocalist STEVE ELLIS. Teaming up with celebrated keyboard player ZOOT MONEY, the band took a harder rock direction with jazz overtones. The line-up of the band was completed with the addition of guitarist ANDY GEE, drummer DAVE LUTTON (formerly with Heavy Jelly and The Grease Band) and bass player JIM LEVERTON (formerly with FAT MATTRESS and JUICY LUCY). Championed by former JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE drummer MITCH MITCHELL, the band secured a contract with Epic Records in 1972 and recorded their debut album the same year. Produced by another well-known admirer, ROGER DALTREY, "Riding on the Crest of a Slump” was an impressive album and contained many fine tracks including the classic ‘El Doomo’ (later a huge hit for Yugoslavian band Smak in Europe in 1976), the fine ‘Angela’ and ‘Your Game’.

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been remastered from the original Epic master tapes and features a booklet that restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay.

Home Is Where I Belong
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever official UK release of the self titled album by Welsh Progressive Rock outfit QUICKSAND. Hailing from Neath in South Wales, the band was the original group of bass guitarist WILL YOUATT who was to join fellow Welsh Prog Rockers MAN prior to the recording of the band’s sole album for Pye Records’ Progressive imprint, Dawn. Released in 1973, the line-up of QUICKSAND’s only album was JIMMY DAVIES on guitar and vocals, PHIL DAVIES on bass and vocals, ROBERT COLLINS on organ, mellotron and vocals and ANTHONY STONE on drums and percussion. Whilst having some musical similarities with MAN, the music on QUICKSAND revealed the group to be fine song writers, with highlights including ‘FLYING’, ‘TIME TO LIVE’ and ‘SEASONS / ALPHA OMEGA’.

My Kind O' Lovin'
•    A colourful, multifarious and formidable listening experience, with hints of melodic hard rock and early prog, featuring Simon Philips (Toto) and the vintage vocals of John Lawton (ex-Uriah Heep) and Joseph Williams (Toto).

•    Joseph Williams was part of four Toto albums – Fahrenheit (1986), The Seventh One (1988), Toto XX (1988) and Falling in Between (2006).

It's Just Begun / Phase Two
•    As soon as you hear the opening riff to the Jimmy Castor Bunch’s ‘It’s Just Begun’ you know you are in for one hell of a Funky ride; often sampled but never bettered! Robinsongs have packaged the "It’s Just Begun” album with the band’s second album "Phase Two” to give you that fantastic Funk experience.

•    This package features the million selling single Troglodyte (Cave Man)’ an absolute phenomenon of its time, and the "Phase Two” album features ‘Say Leroy (The Creature From The Black Lagoon Is Your Father)’ which was very much in the same vein as ‘Troglodyte.’

•    Both albums were originally released in 1972 and "It’s Just Begun” reached the Top 30 on the Billboard Pop Charts.

•    This package also features sleeve notes from archivist Keith Munro.

A Fifth Of Beethoven: Expanded Edition
•    WALTER MURPHY was born in 1952 in New York City and by the age of 4 attended music lessons held by renowned theatre and motion picture organist, Rosa Rio. In 1970 he enrolled in the Manhattan School Of Music where he wrote for the institutes Jazz ensemble.

•    In 1972 after a friend introduced Walter to Doc Severinsen, the musical director of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, he presented him with some of his arrangements and Severinsen liked them so much he had The Tonight Show Band play them live. Unfortunately with the relocation of The Tonight Show production to California, that connection was lost and so Murphy spent the next two years writing jingles for advertisements and the popular TV show Big Blue Marble.

•    While writing a disco song for a commercial in 1974 the producer gave him an idea to update classical music and WALTER MURPHY made a demo tape which caught the ear of Private Stock Records owner Larry Uttal who was particularly interested in his rendition of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 In C Minor.

•    Originally released under the name of WALTER MURPHY & THE BIG APPLE BAND the song became a smash hit reaching #1 on the Hot 100 chart after climbing for 19 weeks. Following the singles success A FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN was released on an album of the same name and also included a notable rendition of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight Of The Bumblebee entitled FLIGHT 76 peaking at #44 on the Billboard Hot 100.

•    HOT SHOT RECORDS is proud to present this lovingly re-mastered, fully expanded edition of WALTER MURPHY & THE BIG APPLE BAND – A FIFTH OF BEETHOVEN. Complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this remaster is a must have for all Disco, Soul and Funk fans out there!
