Strangelands progressive

Enlarge this picture! Esoteric Recordings are pleased to release the classic lost album by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Strangelands. Recorded in the Autumn of 1969, the sessions were an attempt to resurrect the Crazy World by Arthur Brown and featured some classic material. Divided into four sub-headings, ( The Country, The City, The Cosmos and The Afterlife ), Strangelands was certainly ahead of its time but failed to gain a full release for nearly two decades. In hindsight, the material can be seen as the blueprint for Arthur s next project, the innovative Kingdom Come.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue also adds the legendary Replicas sessions by Rustic Hinge. Featuring Crazy World drummer Drachan Theaker and guitarist Andy Rickell, the project was originally intended to feature Arthur Brown as vocalist and also featured the legendary High Tide guesting on one track. With Brown leaving the group to form the first incarnation of Kingdom Come, Rustic Hinge would eventually release material on John Peel’Dandelion label, whilst the Replicas sessions would remain unreleased for a further 20 years. This Esoteric reissue has been newly re-mastered and includes a new essay.

Chisholm In My Bosom progressive

Enlarge this picture! Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a new remastered edition of the 1977 album by ARTHUR BROWN, CHISHOLM IN MY BOSOM . Recorded at a cross roads in Arthur's career, the album saw him experiment with the lengthy side-long title track, collaborating once more with former CRAZY WORLD band mate VINCENT CRANE and KINGDOM COME guitarist ANDY DALBY. The result was one of the most fascinating and creative albums recorded by Arthur in the 1970s. Featuring a superb version of I PUT A SPELL ON YOU and a series of shorter tracks, Chisholm in my Bosom now makes its full UK debut
on CD (a previous release editing ten minutes from the lengthy title track).
