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.

Crossroader ~ An Anthology 1970-1974
Formed in 1969 by guitarist Leslie West and bass player and Cream
producer Felix Pappalardi, Mountain also initially comprised a line-up
that featured Steve Knight (Keyboards) and N.D. Smart (Drums). Prior to
securing a recording contract, the band made an impressive impact at the
Woodstock Festival in August of that year. Soon after this appearance
N.D. Smart was replaced on drums by Corky Laing and Mountain began their
recording career with their debut album CLIMBING , issued in March
1970. Featuring such classic tracks as Mississippi Queen , For Yasgur’s
Farm and a cover of Jack Bruce s Theme from an Imaginary Western ,
Mountain established their hallmark sound of powerful rock combined with
a more subtle side.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of the official remastered edition of "Softsword”, the album inspired by the life of the English King John and the story of the Magna Carta, recorded in 1991.

The album came to life following a commission Rick received to compose music for the finale of the 1991 Dickens Festival at Rochester on Medway in Kent. Rick subsequently adapted the themes he had written for this event and developed them into songs and instrumental pieces. The resulting album featured guest musicians Chrissie Hammond (Vocals), David Paton (Guitars and Bass) and Annabel Blakeney (Gemshorn) and took its title from the nickname given to King John by medieval English Barons.

Unavailable for some years, "Softsword – King John & the Magna Carta” has been newly re-mastered and features an illustrated booklet with a new sleeve design and continues the series of official RICK WAKEMAN releases on Esoteric Recordings.

This product is released June 30 2014 and will not be dispatched before this date.

The Geese And The Ghost: Definitive Edition - 2CD/1DVD Clamshell Set
A 3 CD DEFINITIVE EDITION OF THIS SEMINAL 1977 DEBUT SOLO ALBUM BY GENESIS FOUNDER MEMBER ANTHONY PHILLIPS
FEATURING PHIL COLLINS & MIKE RUTHERFORD
WITH THIRTEEN BONUS TRACKS (INCLUDING THE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED "ONLY YOUR LOVE” FEATURING PHIL COLLINS & MIKE RUTHERFORD)
FEATURING AN NTSC / REGION FREE DVD OF A NEW 5.1 SURROUND SOUND MIX BY ANDY MYLES & SIMON HEYWORTH
INCLUDES POSTER

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of the definitive edition of the 1977 seminal debut solo album by GENESIS founding member ANTHONY PHILLIPS, "The Geese and the Ghost”. The music album could arguably be seen to have begun life as far back as 1969, but in essence it was the result of nearly four years hard work by Anthony, in collaboration with MIKE RUTHERFORD (who co-wrote three of the pieces on the record), beginning with a series of recordings made on TEAC 4 track tape recorders, progressing to sessions on the barge studio of engineer Tom Newman. Enlisting the assistance of PHIL COLLINS, JOHN HACKETT, VIV McAULIFFE, JACK LANCASTER and many others, "The Geese and the Ghost” finally appeared in 1977 in America on the Passport label and in the UK on the Hit & Run imprint.

Lauded by many as a supreme achievement, this definitive of "The Geese and the Ghost” has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes by Simon Heyworth and includes a stunning new 5.1 Surround Sound mix of the album by Andy Myles and Simon Heyworth, along with a CD of demos and early versions of the tracks on "Geese”. The bonus tracks are completed with the addition of both sides of an abortive single from 1973, ‘Silver Song’ and ‘Only Your Love’ (previously unreleased). Both tracks feature Phil Collins as vocalist.

This 3 disc clamshell box edition includes a lavishly illustrated booklet with new essay by Jonathan Dann and fully restores the original UK album artwork.

NB: This title is released 9th March 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.

ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered and expanded edition of the classic 1969 self-titled debut album by the legendary Progressive Rock group AUDIENCE. Along with GENESIS and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, Audience were one of the key bands on the roster of the Famous Charisma Label in the early 1970s. 

Prior to signing to Charisma, the band recorded their self-titled debut album on a production deal which appeared on the Polydor label in the late Spring of 1969 for a matter of months before being withdrawn. 

Comprising HOWARD WERTH (Vocals, Electric Nylon String Guitar), KEITH GEMMELL (Saxophone, Clarinet, Recorder, Flute), TREVOR WILLIAMS (Bass, Vocals) and TONY CONNOR (drums, percussion, vibes), Audience had a fanatical following, particularly on the continent, where their jazz-influenced brand of Progressive Rock proved popular (earning the band Top Ten status in Italy). 

This Esoteric Recordings reissue includes 3 bonus tracks and has been remastered from the original master tapes. It features a booklet with restored artwork and an essay by Sid Smith with an exclusive interview with Howard Werth.

· WITH 15 BONUS TRACKS (7 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED & 2 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED ON CD) 

· INCLUDES PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED BBC SESSIONS FROM 1967 · REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES 

· FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND NEW LINER NOTES BY HENRY SCOTT-IRVINE

· COVERAGE ON RELEVANT WEBSITES & FANZINES Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1968 self-titled debut album by PROCOL HARUM. Released in January 1968, 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”. 

One of the finest releases of the era "Procol Harum” captured the exquisite song writing of Gary Brooker and Keith Reid and 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). The overall result was a collection of songs that would prove to be truly ground breaking, despite only having being released in Mono at the insistence of producer Denny Cordell. 

Newly re-mastered from the original tapes, this Deluxe edition of "Procol Harum” has been expanded to include 27 bonus tracks (8 previously unreleased) over two CDs, including the classic singles "A Whiter Shade of Pale”, "Homburg”, along with rare B-sides, alternate session takes and stereo mixes and seven previously unreleased BBC Radio sessions from June and September 1967. 

This expanded deluxe edition of "Procol Harum” 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, along with a facsimile promotional shop poster for the release of the album in January 1968.
