Synthesiser), John Marshall (Drums), John Etheridge (Acoustic and
Electric Guitars) and new members Steve Cook (Bass Guitar) and Ric

during their lifetime, Alive & Well was the product of several
nights of excellent concerts at Le Palace Theatre in Monmartre, Paris in
July 1978. The album was initially released as a single album, although
the discovery of multi-track masters of a concert in the archives has
resulted in this expanded edition with a CD of additional material
recorded in July 1978.Unavailable officially on CD for nearly fifteen
years, this Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the
original master tapes and fully restores the original artwork.

Album III / Attempted Mustache / Unrequited
Released on 29/08/11. The name trips off the tongue so easily that it s
almost comfortable to forget what Loudon Wainwright III has achieved in a
career that began over 40 years ago. He is one of America’s truly great
singer-songwriters.A man known for his humour and also for his
acting ability. Quite a varied degree of talents all wrapped up in one
man. His father, Loudon Wainwright Jr., was a columnist for Life
magazine. His sister, Sloan Wainwright is also a singer, while his
children Rufus and Martha are both established singer/songwriters. Their
mother’s the late and well respected musician Kate McGarrigle.The
three albums you have here were recorded over a three-year period
between 1972 and 1975, and whilst they form the bulk of Wainwright s
rockier sounding albums they also represent a period where Wainwright
also experienced the very height of his popularity.Wainwright
appeared in three legendary episodes of the long-running US Military
comedy M*A*S*H, taking on the role of the singing surgeon Captain Calvin
Spalding, and has continued acting, appearing in such films as The
40-Year Old Virgin, Big Fish, Knocked Up and The Aviator, and his
residency as singer on Jasper Carrot s 1980 seriesCarrot Confidential
went a longway to establishing Wainwright in the UK.Still
recording, acting and entertaining to this day, Wainwright s is one of
those rare things, a talent who has endured for over four decades now
because of their cult appeal. And as these three records prove, it
wasn’t just a new generation of Wainwright performers that he s offered
to the music world!

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.
