"Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic gold selling 1978 album by BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST, “XII”. Originally released in September 1978, the album was another big selling release for the band achieving Silver disc status in the UK and Gold in Germany.
The album struck a chord with the record buying public thanks to tracks such as ‘Berlin’, ‘In Search of England’, ‘Nova Lepidoptera’ and more, and its popularity continues to...

"Tim Bowness follows 2015’s Stupid Things That Mean The World - Top 10 in the UK ‘Rock’, ‘Vinyl’ and ‘Prog’ charts - with a release unlike any in his back catalogue.
Lost In The Ghost Light is a concept album revolving around the onstage and backstage reflections of a fictional ‘classic’ Rock musician in the twilight of his career. It is a grand statement about a grand era of music making and an undoubted highlight of Bowness’s career.
Ranging from the hypnotic opener Worlds Of Yesterday to th

This is the complete (and beyond!) over-view of the great, late 70s, high quality jazz/rock band that monster drummer Bill Bruford led during the late 70s, after stints in Yes, King Crimson, National Health and UK. This group was one of the last truly great high-water marks of fusion from the 70s, in my opinion.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have heard grumblings that there is not a signed certificate included; Maybe there is and maybe there isn't, but you are hereby forewarned that there may not be...

"The album is the result of an improvised session that took place in a church on the island of Sardinia between the musicians from one of Hungary's most acclaimed jazz groups, Djabe and acclaimed guitarist Steve Hackett.
The collaborations between the band and the former Genesis guitarist and acclaimed solo artist began in 2007. Steve Hackett has appeared on the concert stage with Djabe performing both Genesis and Hackett solo material and Djabe compositions. This album is their first collaborative...

Dreamtime is the band of the great British trombonist Nick Evans, who is heard from too little since the 70's. This was recorded in 1986, so it is chronologically their 2nd album, although it remained unreleased until 2004. A shame, as it's a good qual...

This is quite late in Gil's career, as he died less than four months after this show! This has Gil leading the 16 piece Laurent Cugny Light Orchestra on November 4, 1987 at the Theatre de la Ville in Paris as well as band rehearsals.

Audiophile 24/88.2 recording and stereo/multi-channel mix. Playable on any CD player.

"I have probably listened to a track from this album or the whole album every week since 2007. The CD travels with me to audio dealers and hi-fi shows. The recording is crystalline and showcases the magnificent cymbal prowess of Paul Motian who keeps rhythm like no other drummer. The recording highlights the fantastic fingerwork of Gordon Grdina on his electric guitar, and especially on his oud. And the...

For some unfathomable reason, this fine 1975 album, their sixth, has never really been generally reissued and no one really has explained why. It certainly is not because of the quality of the material, because this is considered one of their finest by many and also considered the last of their string of total classics from the early 70s.

This release has the classic lineup of Dave Brock, Nik Turner, Lemmy, Simon House, Simon King and Alan Powell, and was the last album with Lemmy. This is newly..

“Ever the hugely popular IQ album that saw the return of Peter Nichols to the fold in the early nineties is now 25 years young!

A note from Ian Anderson: "Well, here we are with a slight return to the heady years of 1976 and the notion that you’re never too old to rock and roll.

Remixed by Steven Wilson and unleashing upon an unprepared fan base the additional tracks, TV show recordings as well as other goodies, this collection brings back memories for me at any rate.

Unfortunately, some memories have not returned to their rightful owner as I have little recollection of even recording the additional...

Beat was the second release by the 80s King Crimson, which featured the powerful lineup of Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Tony Levin and Bill Bruford, all of it sympathetically remixed and expanded by Steven Wilson. This isn't one of the most essential albums in the cannon, imo, but it's a good album and this is the best version you can get of it.

Stephen Wilson mixed edition of the 1st album by the 80s comeback album by this seminal group, which blew a lot of minds back then. There isn't so much extra on the CD itself (some alternate mixes). The DVD contains the new and 30th anniversary mixes in high-res stereo a 5.1, hi-res mix. Additionally there's the preliminary rough mixes of the album in the original order and three tracks video tracks filmed for the BBC's OGWT (too bad they couldn't get the two pieces they performed on "Fridays" - I...

Note: This is my personal opinion: Not even Robert Fripp can polish the sonic turd that is Earthbound and make it sound 'good'. Still, the Summit Studios stuff is quite good quality and there are bonus tracks which are better than most of what was originally on the album.

"The thirteenth release in the King Crimson 40th Anniversary series.
Earthbound was originally issued in 1972 and marked the final statement by the band's Islands-era incarnation.

“This album marked the formal debut of the psychedelic-era Moody Blues; though they'd made a pair of singles featuring new (as of 1966) members Justin Hayward and John Lodge, Days of Future Passed was a lot bolder and more ambitious. What surprises first-time listeners -- and delighted them at the time -- is the degree to which the group shares the spotlight with the London Festival Orchestra without compromising their sound or getting lost in the lush mix of sounds. That's mostly because they came to...

The first release by this English group who spent their most popular and productive years in Germany, and are usually thought of as a German band. In 1971, the band landed a contract with German Bellaphon and recorded their first album, which was a spacey concept work. This is by far their most psychedelic album, with incrediblely trippy keyboards and guitar; while they don't sound 'like' 1969 era Pink Floyd, that's a pretty good comparison, and psych/prog and 1968-1971 era Floyd fans will eat this one...

"The poetic significance of Risonanze erranti (1985-87) should be interpreted in the light of the reflections developed since the summer of 1975 with the Venetian friend and philosopher Massimo Cacciari, to whom the work is dedicated. After ‘Al gran sole carico d’amore’ (In the Bright Sunshine Heavy with Love) (1972-74) Nono, obsessed by a sense of anguish owed to his solitude and his activism frustrated by the stagnation of Italian music institutions, felt the need to re-examine his work as a compose...

Mike's third album, and the one that most folks would generally agree is his best work (I am one of those folks!). Tuneful, nicely orchestrated, and a bunch of great players (including Pierre Moerlen, Ernest Mothle, Sally Oldfield, Terry Oldfield, Morris Pert, Lucky Ranku, Bridget Saint John, Clodagh Simonds & more) add their talents to Mike's guitar, keyboards & concept.

2016 deluxe 3 disc set of this classic 1981 release from Genesis' original guitarist, which surprised everyone at the time because (1) It's mostly an electronic music album and (2) despite the fact that it's completely different than anything else he ever did, it is a really great one.
This includes: (a) a new remix from the original multi-track tapes, (b) early mixes and demos of the album and (c) 5.1 and hi-res files.

"I always thought this to be a great album. I've listen to it numerous.

"Sanctuary III is the third part of Rob Reed's musical homage to Mike Oldfield. Its really quite amazing how he's nailed the sound down perfectly.
Everyone knows that Rob is a fine keyboardist but the ongoing surprise is that he's quite an accomplished guitarist.
He plays all the instruments on the album except drums which are covered by Simon Philips, recorders by Les Penning, and Tom Newman on bodhran.
There are female wordless vocals which just drive the Oldfield connection home.
