• NEW REMASTERED & EXPANDED RELEASE OF THE 1974 ALBUM BY GRAVY TRAIN
• WITH TWO BONUS TRACKS
• FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND LINER NOTES

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the highly collectable and legendary 1974 album by Gravy Train, “Staircase To The Day”.

Formed in Lancashire in 1969, Gravy Train was fronted by guitarist and vocalist Norman Barratt, along with J.D. Hughes on keyboards, flute and saxophones, Les Williams on bass and Barry Davenport on drums. The band first came to public attention when they signed to Vertigo Records in 1970. Gravy Train recorded two classic progressive rock albums for the label before signing with Pye Records’ progressive label, Dawn in 1973.

“Staircase to the Day” was the band’s second album for Dawn Records. Issued in 1974, the album was a fine collection of Progressive Rock music that took in influences from bands such as Jethro Tull, Roland Kirk et al.

A highly sought after artefact by vinyl collectors (with original LP copies changing hands for high sums), this Esoteric Recordings reissue of “Staircase to the Day” has been re-mastered and includes two bonus tracks taken from a 1975 single.
