• A NEWLY REMASTERED & EXPANDED EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC 1971 ALBUM BY AUDIENCE
• REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL CHARISMA MASTER TAPES
• WITH THREE BONUS TRACKS
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic 1971 album by the legendary Progressive Rock group AUDIENCE.
Along with GENESIS and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, Audience were one of the key bands on the roster of the Famous Charisma Label in the early 1970s.
Comprising HOWARD WERTH (Vocals, Electric Nylon String Guitar), KEITH GEMMELL (Saxophone, Clarinet, Recorder, Flute), TREVOR WILLIAMS (Bass, Vocals) and TONY CONNOR (drums, percussion, vibes), Audience had a fanatical following, particularly on the continent, where their jazz-influenced brand of Progressive Rock proved popular (earning the band Top Ten status in Italy).
“The House on the Hill”, released in May 1971, was the band’s second album for Charisma and is arguably their most well-known. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, the album featured the legendary title track and classics such as ‘Jackdaw’ and ‘You’re Not Smiling’.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue includes three bonus tracks (one previously unreleased) and has been remastered from the original Charisma master tapes. It features a booklet with restored artwork and an essay by Sid Smith with an exclusive interview with Howard Werth.
N.B This title is released 25th May and will not be dispatched before this date.
