"Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release the first ever CD edition of Messages By Steve Swindells. Perhaps best known for his work with Hawkwind offshoot Hawklords, his membership of the band Pilot and his 1980 solo album Fresh Blood (recently Released CD by Atomhenge), this album was Swindells debut recording for RCA Records in 1974. Featuring guest musicians such as Mike Giles, Danny Thompson and John Gustafson, this excellent work is long overdue for a CD release and includes liner notes by Swindells himself. Also included is a bonus CD of Steve's unreleased follow up album Swindells Swallow recorded in 1975, but shelved by RCA. All tracks have been remastered from the original master tapes."

"Wonderful to have this released on CD. It is such a joy to listen to especially "Messages from heaven" with full live orchestra, Mike Giles on drums and Steve's great keyboard ability. Some of the pieces are very joyful and some touchingly moving as in "I can't see where the light switch is". Fully orchestrated throughout by Martyn Ford and John Bell and featuring fine guest musicians like Mike Giles and Danny Thompson. The lyrics and music written and performed by Steve Swindells are a revelation. I have read some excellent reviews in the musical press and I particularly liked the Zeitgeist comment..."1975's loss was 2009's gain"."-Edith Stephens
