• NEW 3 CD RE-MASTERED & EXPANDED CLAMSHELL BOXED SET EDITION OF THE CLASSIC 1974 ALBUM BY REFUGEE
• FEATURING PATRICK MORAZ (YES, THE MOODY BLUES), LEE JACKSON (THE NICE), BRIAN DAVISON (THE NICE)
• CONTAINS THE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BBC “IN CONCERT” PERFORMANCE FROM MAY 1974 AND “LIVE AT NEWCASTLE CITY HALL 1974”
• WITH ILLUSTRATED BOOKLET

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a re-mastered and expanded 3CD clamshell boxed set edition of the 1974 album by legendary Progressive Rock trio REFUGEE. Formed in 1973 by former members of THE NICE Lee Jackson (bass, vocals), Brian Davison (drums) and keyboard virtuoso Patrick Moraz, Refugee recorded one classic studio album during their short career, which was issued in 1974. Taking the template established by THE NICE (and their keyboard player KEITH EMERSON who later was part of EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER), Refugee earned praise upon its release and saw the band gain a loyal following.

In May 1974 they recorded a memorable performance for BBC Radio One’s “In Concert” programme which appears as part of this set for the first time. A UK tour saw an appearance at Newcastle’s City Hall in June 1974 which was recorded by the band’s sound engineer and forms CD Three of the set. Thanks to the profile of Patrick Moraz being raised by his work with Refugee, he soon joined Yes, replacing the recently departed Rick Wakeman.

Unavailable for some years, this new edition of REFUGEE is most welcome and is a complete document of the groups short existence.
