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.

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.

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.

GTR: 2CD Deluxe Expanded Edition
NEW DELUXE AND EXPANDED 2 CD DIGIPACK EDITION OF THE 1986 ALBUM BY STEVE HACKETT & STEVE HOWE’S BAND GTR
WITH BONUS 14-TRACK CD OF GTR LIVE IN LOS ANGELES IN JULY 1986 & THREE BONUS TRACKS TAKEN FROM RARE SINGLES & EPs
NEWLY REMASTERED 
FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND ESSAY WITH NEW LINER NOTES
STEVE HACKETT UK & EUROPEAN TOUR THROUGHOUT AUTUMN OF 2015

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the official release of a 2 disc deluxe edition of GTR, the self-titled 1986 album by Steve Hackett and Steve Howe’s band GTR. 

GTR was formed in 1985 following guitarist Steve Howe’s departure from ASIA. Teaming up with the equally legendary guitarist Steve Hackett, GTR was assembled with the addition of vocalist Max Bacon, bassist Phil Spalding and drummer Jonathan Mover. 

The band’s sole album was produced by Geoff Downes and was issued in July 1986 and was a US Top 20 hit album and also was a UK Top 50 hit. Two singles drawn from the record (‘When the Heart Rules the Mind’ & ‘The Hunter’) were also hits in the USA. Although a short lived group, GTR also toured to promote the album (with the addition of Matt Clifford on keyboards) performing material from the album, as well as songs such as ‘Roundabout’ and ‘I Know What I Like (in Your Wardrobe)’, made famous by YES and GENESIS respectively. Although GTR ceased to exist as a band in 1987, the group’s sole album is an important moment in rock music of the 1980s. 

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered and is presented here with the addition of a bonus 14-track CD of GTR live in Los Angeles in July 1986. There are also three bonus tracks taken from promotional 12-inch singles of ‘When the Heart Rules the Mind’ & ‘The Hunter’, two of which appear on CD for the first time.

This expanded deluxe edition of "GTR” also includes a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and features a new essay.

N.B: This title is released 28th August 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Legacy - Live At The Shepherds Bush Empire: CD/DVD Deluxe Edition
FOR A LIMITED TIME WE ARE GIVING AWAY A SPECIAL EDITION HAND SIGNED POSTCARD WITH EACH ORDER!!

NEW CD / DVD (NTSC / REGION FREE) DIGIPACK EDITION OF THE 2007 LIVE ALBUM BY John Lees’ BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST
FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK
ITALIAN & UK CONCERTS IN SEPTEMBER 2015

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a new 2 disc CD / DVD edition of LEGACY, the 2007 live album by John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest

On Sunday November 5th 2006 John Lees' Barclay James Harvest's British tour reached London. Just one concert of thirteen shows (the biggest UK tour by any incarnation of BJH for fourteen years), founder members John Lees (guitar vocals), Woolly Wolstenholme (keyboards, mellotron, guitar, vocals), together with Craig Fletcher (bass), Kevin Whitehead (drums, percussion) and guest musicians had already performed six successful concerts, and were to play a further eight British concerts, many of which had sold out in advance. 

Those who attended these concerts cited the performances as some of the most impassioned by any of the founder members of Barclay James Harvest for many years. By the time the tour reached London, the musicians in the band were functioning as a tight musical unit and the show that night would rank as one of the best concerts of the tour: The audience, many of whom had travelled from Europe, Japan and the USA, witnessed a set that was inspiring. Of the songs performed that night, some, such as ‘The Great 1974 Mining Disaster’, ‘The Poet’ and ‘After the Day’ had not been played on a concert stage for over thirty years, whilst ‘Poor Wages’ had never previously been performed live. 

A magical evening of some of the finest music of the BJH canon ensued, all captured by a mobile recording unit. This new 2 disc digipack edition of LEGACY features both the original CD release and a DVD of the full concert (NTSC / Region Free) and is a lasting artefact of a tour that will forever stay in the memories of those who witnessed John Lees' Barclay James Harvest at Shepherd's Bush Empire in November 2006. 

N.B: This title is released 28th August 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.
