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.

Former CARAVAN and HATFIELD & THE NORTH member RICHARD SINCLAIR had already been in CAMEL for some months and was soon joined by his cousin DAVE SINCLAIR in a new Camel line-up.

Breathless features traditional CAMEL music along with the Canterbury influences associated with Richard Sinclair, making for a unique album. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes the single version of Rainbows End as a bonus track.

Alt - CD Edition
THE NEW PROJECT FROM VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR

AN ALTERNATIVE ALBUM REFLECTING ANOTHER SIDE OF ONE OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK’S MOST ENDURING AND CREATIVE ARTISTS


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. ‘ALT’ is a new studio project by the legendary VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and follows on from the release of "A GROUNDING IN NUMBERS” in 2011. "ALT” is no ordinary Van Der Graaf Generator album (if the term "ordinary” could ever be applied to this visionary group). PETER HAMMILL explains; "Instrumental Improvs & Experiments - Most of the music on "ALT” was made while we weren't really looking, or perhaps only while the left side of our collective brain was engaged. The album is a mixture of improvisations recorded at sound checks and in the studio and more considered sonic creations which often verge on Musique Concrete. The fourteen pieces here offer a fascinating glimpse into an alternative Van der Graaf Generator sound world. Perhaps the closest comparison would be with the second CD of "Present", but even the link with those recordings is tenuous. Even by Van der Graaf Generator standards, this stuff's at the wacky end of the scale!” This instrumental album is another side of Van Der Graaf Generator, a truly unique listening experience.

Press:-

"Alt is, according to Hammill, a collection of instrumental improvisations recorded "while we weren't really looking or while the left side of our collective brain was engaged".

These pieces have a good deal of merit, even if they're lacking any sort context or concept - the crashing percussion of tracks like Midnite Or So, buffeted by jazzy runs of electric keyboard, are reminiscent of the wilder experimentalism of Faust." (7/10*)

Songs Of A Lifetime
THE NEW LIVE ALBUM FROM KING CRIMSON AND EMERSON LAKE & PALMER FOUNDER GREG LAKE

Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the new GREG LAKE album, "SONGS OF A LIFETIME”.

As a founder member of KING CRIMSON and EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, Greg has been a major creative force in music for over 40 years. In 2012 he embarked on a solo tour to perform "Songs of a Lifetime”, a unique concert experience that was conceived whilst Greg was writing his autobiography. "From time to time during the writing these songs would crop up that were in some way crucial or extremely important in the development of my career” he explains. "These were not always songs that I had written myself, but sometimes songs that had been written and performed by other artists as well. I realised that they actually represented the journey that I had shared together with the audience over all these years.”

Behind these songs there was often a story to be told and it occurred to me that the same must be true for the audience as well. It was then that I thought of the idea of doing a series of very small intimate concerts where I could perform these songs and exchange stories with the audience, in a way reliving the time when the music we shared together really became part of our identity and in a way became the backdrop to our lives, a sort of tapestry I suppose.

These recordings were taken from a selection of the shows performed on the tour”. The album is a unique record of a unique live experience from one of the legendary figures in Rock music.

Merlin Atmos - Live Performances 2013: 2CD Digipack Limited Edition
THE BRAND NEW LIVE ALBUM BY THE LEGENDARY VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR
RECORDED IN 2013 FEATURING THE FIRST EVER FULL LIVE PERFORMANCES OF "FLIGHT” & "A PLAGUE OF LIGHTHOUSE KEEPERS”

ESOTERIC ANTENNA, are pleased to announce the release of the marvellous new live album by VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, "Merlin Atmos”.

In June 2013, Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans took to the road in Europe to present a series of live concerts that featured a set list that excited devotees of Van Der Graaf Generator like no other for many years. The band had decided the time was right to present their epic classic piece "A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers” in its entirety on stage for the first time, along with Peter Hammill’s equally epic "Flight”. As the centrepieces of the band’s live set, a series of wonderful concerts took place, drawing on the classic material from the band’s past, as well as their more recent albums such as "A Grounding in Numbers”.

Fortunately, some of these shows were recorded for posterity and have now been gathered together to form "Merlin Atmos”. Arguably the finest live album in the history of the band, "Merlin Atmos” confirms Van Der Graaf Generator as a continuing musical force and explains the loyalty and respect they continue to receive from devotees the world over. "Merlin Atmos” is a stunning musical statement from a stunningly innovative band.

This strictly limited edition 2 CD digipack edition features a 70 minute CD of "Extras” recorded on the 2013 European tour including such classic tracks as ‘Scorched Earth’, ‘Man-Erg’, ‘Meurglys III, the Songwriter's Guild’ and ‘Your Time Starts Now’.
