Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a re-mastered and expanded 3CD digipack edition of the archive release SON OF AMERICA by SPIRIT.

First issued in 2005, the set originally featured a collection of previously unreleased songs, demos and instrumentals recorded between 1983 and Randy California’s final recording session in late 1996, along with unreleased and alternative takes from the California Blues and Cosmic Smile albums.

This edition of SON OF AMERICA is the latest release in Esoteric Recordings’ series of releases from the SPIRIT and RANDY CALIFORNIA archives and has been expanded to include an additional CD of an unreleased live performance for the radio station KPFM-FM in California which includes fascinating dialogue and renditions of classic Spirit tracks such as Nature’s Way, 1984, Fresh Garbage, Mr Skin, Elijah, I Got a Line on You and Animal Zoo.

This 3 disc digipack features new artwork and an illustrated booklet with an essay by SPIRIT and RANDY CALIFORNIA archivist Mick Skidmore.
