Sky - Sky CD + DVD (expanded / remastered)

SKU 23-Eclec 22470
In the late 1970s, Sky emerged as sort of a musician's musicians supergroup, consisting of musicians from the classical and (progressive) rock worlds. While they weren't touted as a progressive rock band, they were a progressive rock band in the same way that Flairck were; classically trained musicians playing interesting rock music.

"Formed in 1979, Sky brought together the worlds of rock and classical music in a highly successful and inspiring way. Featuring the gifted talents of guitarist JOHN WILLIAMS, percussionist TRISTAN FRY, legendary bass player HERBIE FLOWERS, former Curved Air keyboard player FRANCIS MONKMAN and guitarist KEVIN PEEK, Sky recorded their debut album at Abbey Road studios in the early months of 1979. Featuring the lengthy suite "Where Opposite’s Meet”, "Westway” and "Cannonball”, the band’s self-titled debut reached the UK top ten in May 1979 and went on to achieve Platinum status in the UK and was also a major hit in Europe and Australia.

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered and includes the bonus tracks ‘Dies Irae’, the single version of ‘March to the Scaffold’ (Previously unreleased on CD), and a live version of ‘Where Opposites Meet’ recorded by BBC Radio One at a charity concert at Wembley Arena in November 1979.

This deluxe edition also includes a DVD featuring all of Sky’s surviving BBC TV appearances in 1979, all previously unreleased on video or DVD. The original album artwork is fully restored and the booklet features a new essay."
