Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic gold selling 1976 album by BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST, “Octoberon”. Originally released at the end of October 1976, the album was a big selling release for the band achieving Silver disc status in the UK and Gold in Germany, their first breakthrough album in that territory.

The album struck a chord with the record buying public thanks to tracks such as ‘The World Goes On’, ‘Suicide?’, the epic ‘Ra’ and ‘Rock n’ Roll Star’ and its popularity continues to endure.

This Deluxe edition includes two CDs and a DVD, and features a new re-master of the original album mix, along with stunning brand new stereo and 5.1 surround mix of the album. The set also includes new stereo and 5.1 Surround sound mixes. The DVD (which is region free and NTSC) also includes 96 kHz / 24-bit stereo re-mixes and a 96 kHz / 24-bit re-master of the original album mix and includes two rare promotional films of ‘Rock and Roll Star’ and ‘The World Goes On’, as broadcast on the BBC TV show “The Old Grey Whistle Test”. In addition the set features six bonus tracks, including the previously unreleased alternate introduction mix of ‘May Day’ and alternate mixes of ‘Ra’, ‘Suicide?’ and more.
