A Chord Too Far - 4CD Anthology Box Set
A LAVISH 4 CD BOXED SET CELEBRATING THE SOLO ROCK AND CLASSICAL WORK OF GENESIS FOUNDER & KEYBOARDIST TONY BANKS

WITH 48 TRACKS SELECTED BY TONY BANKS

INCLUDES FOUR PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED RECORDINGS

FEATURES A 60 PAGE BOOK WITH EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH TONY BANKS

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the first ever boxed set celebrating the solo work of Genesis founding member Tony Banks. A CHORD TOO FAR is a deluxe 4 CD set comprising 48 songs and pieces, all personally selected by Tony. Many tracks have been remixed exclusively for this collection and have been drawn from his seven solo and two orchestral albums; A CURIOUS FEELING, THE FUGITIVE, THE WICKED LADY (film score), SOUNDTRACKS , BANKSTATEMENT, STILL, STRICTLY INC. and his orchestral albums SEVEN – A SUITE FOR ORCHESTRA and SIX PIECES FOR ORCHESTRA.

A CHORD TOO FAR also includes four previously unreleased tracks, three of which are keyboard demos of his orchestral suites. The fourth is a piece originally written for the album STILL. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010 as a member of Genesis, Tony is one of the most respected songwriters and keyboardists in the world. His career spans almost 50 years and has seen him sell in excess of 130 million albums . His body of work is as innovative as it is eclectic. Genesis’ avant-garde style made them one of progressive rock’s founding fathers in the 1970s, creating an experimental style of rock music never before seen. They went on to produce music with a greater pop sensibility in the 1980s that saw them become one of the biggest selling bands of the decade, and play stadiums throughout the world.

Tony Banks’ solo work has continued in the same vein. His rock albums have included collaborations with some of the world’s most respected musicians including singers Toyah Wilcox, Fish and Nick Kershaw , bassist Pino Pallodino , and drummers Steve Gadd and Vinnie Colaiuta , as well as long time Genesis collaborators Daryl Stuermer and Chester Thompson . He has composed original scores for four films The Shout (1978), The Wicked Lady (1983), Starship (1985) and Quicksilver (1986) and most recently his orchestral albums, Seven: A Suite for Orchestra and Six Pieces for Orchestra, that were performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

    Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1969 album A SALTY DOG by PROCOL HARUM. Released in June 1969, the record followed on from the huge international success of the band’s debut single "A Whiter Shade of Pale” and the follow up single "Homburg” and the superb albums PROCOL HARUM and SHINE ON BRIGHTLY.  One of the finest releases of the era "A Salty Dog” saw the exquisite song writing of Gary Brooker and Keith Reid honed to perfection on highlights such as the album’s title track, "The Devil Came From Kansas”, "Wreck of the Hesperus”, "The Milk of Human Kindness” and more.  Recorded at Abbey Road studios, the album captured the excellence of the musicians in the group, namely Gary Brooker (voice, piano), Robin Trower (lead guitar), David Knights (bass guitar), B.J. Wilson (drums) and Matthew Fisher (Hammond organ).

     

    Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this Deluxe edition of "A Salty Dog” has been expanded to include 12 bonus tracks (5 previously unreleased) over two CDs, including the mono single mix of the title track and its non-album B-side; an early take of ‘The Milk Of Human Kindness’, plus five previously unreleased tracks from BBC Radio sessions from October 1968 & May 1969 along with four live tracks recorded in the USA in April 1969.

     

    This expanded deluxe edition of "A Salty Dog” also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay by Procol Harum biographer Henry Scott-Irvine

A 5 CD DEFINITIVE EDITION CLAMSHELL BOXED SET OF THE FIRST FOUR SEMINAL "PRIVATE PARTS & PIECES” ALBUMS BY GENESIS FOUNDER MEMBER ANTHONY PHILLIPS
WITH A BONUS CD FEATURING 18 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS AND A FURTHER 18 BONUS TRACKS OVER THE REMAINING 4 DISCS
INCLUDES LAVISH BOOKLET WITH NEW ESSAY BY JONATHAN DANN

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a 5CD clamshell boxed set anthology by legendary guitarist, composer and instrumentalist ANTHONY PHILLIPS. Anthony was a founding member of Genesis alongside Peter Gabriel, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks with whom he recorded the albums From Genesis To Revelation and Trespass. After leaving the group in 1970, Anthony studied orchestration and harmony externally at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. After passing his LGSM exams, he taught music at Reeds School and Peper Harrow whilst continuing to compose and record in his home studio.

He marked his return to the commercial music scene with the release of his debut solo album The Geese & The Ghost in 1977 and continued to create a large and diverse output as a recording artist on albums such as Wise After The Event, Sides, Slow Dance, 1984 and Field Day. Alongside these releases Anthony is known for the successful series of the Private Parts & Pieces albums. Beginning in 1978 the first four volumes featured an extensive range of music recorded by Ant for various projects (going as far back as 1972) and came to be regarded by fans as essential collections of his wide and diverse compositional work.

Now, Anthony Phillips and Jonathan Dann have compiled this 5 disc deluxe set, which gathers together the first four Private Parts & Pieces albums (with a total of 18 bonus tracks), along with an additional 18-track CD of previously unreleased material. Private Parts & Pieces I - IV is the definitive statement on these classic albums.

The set includes a lavish booklet with an essay by Jonathan Dann and fully restores the artwork of the original vinyl releases.

N.B: This title is released 11th September 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.
