And finally we come to.............
« on: May 01, 2013, 05:09:14 PM »
Alright, I think you've all been kept waiting long enough..

I'm please to announce that the last two MAN albums from 76', "The Welsh Connection" and "Alls Well That Ends Well" are to be reissued on Esoteric Recordings

Both albums will have bonus discs, "The Welsh Connection" will have the whole show from The Keystone Berkeley, California 9th August 76' as well as the B-side to Out of your head, "I'm a Love Taker"

"All Well that Ends Well" bonus material is still to be confirmed, but needless to say, we are all really excited about this project in particular.

This will mark the end of the batch of reissues from 1968-1976 that Esoteric have done with the MANBAND.  I would like to thank all the guys at Esoteric/Cherry Red for the hard work they have put in to these projects and to the fans for their support. 

It's been a long time coming, but if Esoteric's work on the previous re-issues are anything to go by, I'm sure it will be a fabulous package

More news as it comes in,

George

GREAT NEWS GEORGE!  TWC is among my favorite Man albums, it certainly was different from their other albums, but I liked the sound and direction the band was taking. 

Lots of good memories of this album, and bittersweet memories when All's Well came out only to discover it was their final call (or so we thought).  It will be nice to re-discover both of these gems. 

Esoteric has done a stellar job with the Man catalog, better than anyone could have ever expected.  Your dad's legacy deserves nothing less.

Great news.
I think it's obvious but I need to ask: will they be remastered with a new mix?
TWC needs a brand new mix.

Listening to Official Bootleg Vol. 2, Live at the Keystone Berkeley this morning. 

I always thought one of Deke's tossed aside comments caught on this recording would have made a great subtitle for this set:  "If You Don't Like Us Tonight, You Never Will"

Or another Deke-ism I just caught during Out Of Your Head, and equally appropriate as a subtitle for the set:

"Loud Enough To Give Yourself a Brain Hemorrhage"
