ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic 1968 psychedelic rock album by THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Perhaps one of the finest and most original of bands to emerge in the USA during the Psychedelic era, the United States of America was formed in 1967 by the avant-garde musician Joseph Byrd (an associate of Yoko Ono who had studied with composer John Cage). After studying at UCLA in California, Byrd decided to form a band that would combine performance art, radical politics and experimental rock music. Recruiting former partner Dorothy Moskowitz (Vocals), Gordon Marron (Violin, Ring Modulator, Vocals), Rand Forbes (Bass) and Craig Woodson (Electric Drums), the band signed to Columbia records and recorded their self-titled album in December 1967. The sessions produced some of the most extraordinary music of the time, with pieces such as "The American Metaphysical Circus” combining tape looped effects, electronic sounds and rock to create a stunning opening to a fine album. Such a radical approach led to the album being hailed by critics upon release but receiving a poor commercial reception. Internal friction soon took hold and the United States of America had disbanded by the end of 1968.

This Esoteric Recordings edition is newly remastered and includes ten bonus tracks recorded during the sessions for the band’s sole album and in May and July 1968. The reissue also features an illustrated booklet with new essay.

This product is released June 30 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Wild And Wandering
Wasted Youth's influential classic 'Wild & Wandering' is widely considered to be a fore runner of the Goth movement. It was originally released in 1981 on the Bridge House label. The CD features 5 bonus tracks, including the singles 'Paris France' and 'Do The Caveman'. All the bonus tracks are live recordings taken from the band's album 'Wasted Youth Live'. The CD features all the original artwork, the sleeve notes are written by the band's manager and record company boss, Terence Murphy. There is also a complete band discography included. Wasted Youth's career was short lived but they left a lasting impression with their innovative sound in the post punk days of London in the late 1970's. Wasted Youth's guitarist, Rocco Barker, later of Flesh For Lulu, has been recently entertaining the nation with his 12 week C4 TV series 'A Place In The Sun - Costa Chaos' which sees him buying and developing a property in Spain. Our Price: £9.95

Uphill All The Way
Though best known for their mid-70s association with David Gilmour, Unicorn are cherished by the pop cognoscenti for their 1971 debut album for Transatlantic, Uphill All The Way. With its plangent melodies, wistful CSNY-style vocal harmonies, meshing acoustic/electric instrumentation and clean production sound, Uphill All The Way is now considered something of a lost classic by admirers of the post-Beatles/Byrds soft rock/progressive pop genre. Taken from the original master-tapes, this definitive reissue rounds up stray single cuts from the era as well as adding a new remix of their superb version of Jimmy Webb's 'P. F. Sloan'. It includes a lavish 16-page booklet that features a new essay on the band's early years, with fresh quotes from founder member Pat Martin and numerous previously unpublished photos. Our Price: £9.95

Get Down: Expanded Edition
•    HUGELY POPULAR DISCO CLASSIC RETURNS TO CD!

•    Gene Chandler (born Eugene Dixon in 1937 in Chicago, Illinois.) is best remembered for the R&B and Pop #1 "Duke Of Earl” on which he sang lead vocal as part of the doo-wop group The Dukays. Chandler is hugely admired by soul fans as one of the leading names from the Chicago scene along with Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield, the latter of which often wrote for and produced the singer.

•    Having enjoyed a string of R&B hits through the 60’s and 70’s on various labels including a cover of James Brown’s "There Was A Time” (R&B #22) and "Groovy Situation” (R&B #8) Chandler moved on to become executive vice president at Chi Sound Records, where he released four disco funk albums between ’78 and ‘81.

•    GET DOWN (R&B #12/Pop #47) was the first of these albums and was released in 1978. This great set of funky disco tracks spawned two R&B hit singles with "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same” reaching #51, and the title track "Get Down”, his biggest hit in 13 years, peaking at #3, Pop #53, and going all the way to #11 in the UK.

•    BBR is very proud to present GET DOWN, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.

•    GET DOWN is absolutely essential listening for all Soul, Funk and Disco fans.
