A Curious Feeling: 2 Disc Expanded Edition - Tony Banks

A Curious Feeling: 2 Disc Expanded Edition

• A COMBINED CD & DVD RELEASE FOR THIS CLASSIC ALBUM FROM 1979 BY GENESIS KEYBOARD PLAYER & WRITER TONY BANKS
• DVD FEATURES 5.1 SURROUND SOUND MIX BY NICK DAVIS & TONY BANKS ALONG WITH 2 PROMOTIONAL VIDEOS
• INCLUDES BOOKLET WITH LINER NOTES BY TONY BANKS

Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a Deluxe two disc edition of the album "A Curious Feeling” by GENESIS founder member and keyboard player TONY BANKS. This classic album, inspired by the novel "Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes, was first released in October 1979 by Charisma Records. Recorded at Polar Studios in Stockholm, whilst Genesis were on a brief hiatus following the "And Then There Were Three” tour, this majestic work featured contributions from drummer CHESTER THOMPSON (a member of GENESIS for concert appearances) and vocalist KIM BEACON.

Stylistically the album is equal to anything Banks composed for GENESIS and includes the instrumental ‘The Waters of Lethe’ and the song ‘For a While’ (also released as a single) among its highlights. Significantly, this new edition of "A Curious Feeling” has been remixed from the original master tapes by Nick Davis (who also remixed the entire GENESIS catalogue in 2007) and Tony Banks, resulting in a more dynamic sounding album. This Deluxe CD & DVD release includes a 5.1 SURROUND SOUND MIX of "A Curious Feeling” and the 96 kHz / 24-bit Stereo Mix of the album, along with the rare promotional videos of ‘For a While’ and ‘The Waters of Lethe’.
The booklet features notes by Tony Banks and rare studio photographs.

N.B: This title is released 26th February 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Now We Have Light: 2CD Edition
THE STUNNING NEW ALBUM FROM SANGUINE HUM
A DOUBLE ALBUM FROM THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED OXFORD BAND 

The Esoteric Antenna label is delighted to announce the release of the new album from SANGUINE HUM. 

Now We Have Light is the third Sanguine Hum album, following on from the acclaimed albums Diving Bell and the Weight of the World. Now We Have Light is a double CD concept album. Unusually with this record, it is also something that the band have been working on for over a decade, and its roots go right back to the days of Antique Seeking Nuns, which was the earliest project that guitarist Joff Winks and keyboard player Matt Baber collaborated on. During this time they hatched a truly bizarre conceptual story to hang even more music around - a work that perhaps was too ambitious for them at the time, and one which took the formation of Sanguine Hum to make it a feasible challenge to complete. Somewhat like a twisted mix of Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, Frank Zappa's Joe's Garage and the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, Now We Have Light is a future parable set in an entirely possible scenario, in which entirely impossible events start occurring.

Although a core group of songs were written for this album as far back as 2002, the band were inspired by the most recent Sanguine Hum material to revisit the old tunes and where needed develop and rewrite what already existed, whilst also creating a large amount of brand new music at the same time. Ultimately, it has come to represent a definitive cross section of all the work that they have made as Antique Seeking Nuns, Joff Winks Band, Nunbient and Sanguine Hum thus far. Recorded once again in Oxford, at Evolution Studios, the double album features alongside Joff Winks and Matt Baber, original bassist Brad Waissman and, making his second studio appearance with the band, Henry Fool and No-Man drummer, Andrew Booker. Also, the band invited renowned UK jazz vibraphone player, Jim Hart, to perform on several tracks, which marks the first time that a guest musician has appeared on a Sanguine Hum album. The package comes wrapped in a striking cover of illustrations from graphic artist Meriel Waissman.

Now We Have Light is arguably the finest album to date from Sanguine Hum, one of the most innovative bands in modern Progressive music.

NB: This title is released 23rd Feb 2015 and will not be dispatched until 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 Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the excellent new album by JOHN HACKETT; Another Life. 

John Hackett is highly regarded for his distinctive flute sound in the world of progressive music and as an accomplished soloist. Solo flautist, guitarist, singer and composer, John is best known for his work with his brother Steve Hackett, the former Genesis guitarist, and the ambient group Symbiosis. John collaborated with his brother Steve on the albums, Voyage of the Acolyte and Please Don’t Touch before leaving Sheffield University to work with Steve, who had just left Genesis. This led to further recordings and tours of the UK, USA and Europe with John playing flute, guitar and bass pedals.

Another Life is John Hackett's long awaited new rock album and is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Checking Out of London (released in 2005). On his new record John Hackett is joined by brother Steve Hackett, ex-Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips and prog legend Nick Magnus to create an evocative musical landscape of powerful rock songs and rich melodies.

Ostinato
· A NEW SOLO ALBUM BY AWARD WINNING PRODUCER & ENGINEER STEPHEN W. TAYLER (KATE BUSH, RUSH, TINA TURNER, PETER GABRIEL, HOWARD JONES)

Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of a stunning new album by the award winning producer, sound designer, engineer & mixer STEPHEN W. TAYLER.

‘Ostinato’ is a labour of love, built on a forty years’ vision by Stephen, who is influenced by modern electronica and is a Minimalist composer in the tradition of Terry Riley, Philip Glass, and Steve Reich. "I had so many ideas for music and sound running around inside my head as a teenager, and now, more than 40 years on, technology has evolved to the point where I can realise this vision, as if the outer world and my inner music have finally synchronised, and the production of this album has at last been made possible.” says Stephen. "These are the sounds and ideas that have lived in my mind… the sound of voices, choirs, organs, the piano, the clarinet, synthesizers, vocoders, places and environments, from the depths of my memory and across the years.”

As a mixing and recording engineer, music producer, musician, composer and sound designer, Stephen has contributed this collection of talents to hundreds of world-class albums for artists including Rupert Hine, Suzanne Vega, Peter Gabriel, Underworld, Duncan Sheik, Howard Jones, Stevie Nicks, Milla Jovovich, Rush, Bob Geldof and Tina Turner. He most recently has been working with Kate Bush on her last two albums, as well as her first live performances in thirty-five years.

Stephen has always stayed on the leading edge of audio technology, starting with analogue and tape techniques, and subsequently he has been an early adopter of synthesis, sampling and digital technology. His current work includes engagements with moving image and sound design, as well as digital and installation art. "Ostinato” brings together all of Stephen’s talents and is a stunning example of the art of ambient and minimalist composition.

N.B: This title is released 25th September 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.

2. AT THE EDGE OF LIGHT 3. PERIPHERIQUE

What We Ask Is Where We Begin: The Songs For Days Sessions
THE SUPERB PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED "LOST” ALBUM BY PROG AWARD NOMINEES SANGUINE HUM

Esoteric Antenna, a label of the Cherry Red Records Group, is pleased to announce the release of WHAT WE ASK IS WHERE WE BEGIN the latest eagerly awaited album by Prog Award nominees, SANGUINE HUM. 

Following hot on the heels of 2015’s highly acclaimed double album Now We Have Light, Sanguine Hum return to cast an intriguing light on the early years of their career. Whilst many Hum fans got on board with the albums the Weight of the World and Diving Bell, there will be many completely unaware of a "lost” gem recorded in 2006 – an album that technically was the band’s bona fide debut: Songs For Days. It was lost for a number of reasons. Firstly, the band had yet to settle on the name Sanguine Hum, and for some rather convoluted reasons it came out as Joff Winks Band (a name universally hated by everyone in the band...especially Joff!). Secondly, despite much initial excitement, Songs For Days failed to find a home on a record label and so appeared with minimal hurrah as a digital download only. And what a loss this was!

It meant that only a few hard-core fans would become familiar with the epic, soaring Juniper, the twisting Mahavishnu inspired Milo, the childhood nostalgia of Cast Adrift, the traces of Steely Dan blended with Canterbury Prog or the cinematic ambient segues and instrumentals gluing the album together. In short Songs For Days is an album that the band described at the time as being "kaleidoscopic”. And that’s not all. What We Ask is Where We Begin presents an extended master of Songs For Days on disc one, marking its first ever appearance on CD. Disc Two however, is a real treasure trove of discovery! The gestation period of Songs For Days covered many years of writing and recording sessions and this second disc presents the following:

- Over 40 minutes of never before heard songs and instrumentals
- Several instrumental pieces newly finished by the band for this release
- The band’s authentic and faithful cover of Steely Dan’s classic song Here at the Western World
- The 2006 first attempt at recording future Sanguine Hum classic There’s No Hum
- 20 minutes of session outtakes from the main Songs For Days tracking dates
- New mixes of singles / B-Sides
- Extended liner notes, interviews, rare photos and memorabilia from the era

Now finally seeing the light of day on Esoteric Antenna, these recordings demonstrate that for many Sanguine Hum fans there is a whole new side of the band still to be discovered!

NB: This product is released 29th January 2016 and will not be dispatched until this date.
