REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC RARE 1976 ALBUM BY THE LEGENDARY BOXER
PATTO & OLLIE HALSALL
FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly
re-mastered edition of the classic rare1976 album by the legendary BOXER.
Formed by vocalist MIKE PATTO and guitarist OLLIE
HALSALL two years after the demise of cult heroes PATTO, the line-up of the
band was completed by bassist KEITH ELLIS (formerly with Van Der Graaf
Generator, Juicy Lucy and Spooky Tooth) and drummer TONY NEWMAN (formerly with
the JEFF BECK GROUP and KEVIN AYERS’ band). Signing to Virgin Records in 1975,
BOXER recorded their second album, “Bloodletting” at The Manor Studio in
Oxfordshire in 1976. Featuring guests CHRIS STAINTON, BOZ BURRELL, BOBBY TENCH
and TIM HINKLEY, the album was withdrawn from release the same year, finally
appearing in 1979.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly
re-mastered from the original master tapes and features a booklet that fully
restores all original album artwork with a new essay.
Release Date: 27/08/2012
