Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the
release of a Deluxe 2CD Expanded edition of Matching Mole’s album
“LITTLE RED RECORD”. Formed in 1971, Matching Mole originally featured
former SOFT MACHINE drummer ROBERT WYATT, former CARAVAN keyboard player
DAVE SINCLAIR, guitarist PHIL MILLER, bassist BILL McCORMICK with guest
keyboard player DAVE MacRAE.

Their wonderful self-titled debut album was recorded between December
1971 and February 1972, following which DAVE SINCLAIR departed, with
DAVE MacRAE assuming a full time role within the band. “LITTLE RED
RECORD” was Matching Mole’s second marvellous album, recorded in August
1972 and was produced by KING CRIMSON leader ROBERT FRIPP.

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the
original master tapes and is expanded to include four previously
unreleased studio session alternate takes and Matching Mole’s appearance
on BBC Radio One “In Concert” in July 1972. The booklet restores all
original artwork and includes an essay by Sid Smith.


“On Little Red Record, more of a collective effort than its mellotron-soaked predecessor, we hear the full skit that would, in edited form, kick off the finished record. And if it sounds like they’re having a blast, it’s in no small part because one of the voices belongs to Alfie, Robert’s new girlfriend…” (4/5*)
