    Let The Electric Children Play - The Underground Story Of Transatlantic Records: 3 Disc Deluxe Remastered Anthology

      Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of a new deluxe 3CD which tells the story of the so-called “underground” era of one of Britain’s great independent record labels of the 1960s & 1970s, Transatlantic Records. In the heady atmosphere of the late 1960s, the sea change in British popular music spearheaded by the Beatles experimentation on the Sergeant Pepper album and swiftly followed by the likes of Cream, Pink Floyd, Traffic, Family, Procol Harum, Jethro Tull and a host of groups and musicians who followed in their footsteps led to the album being seen as the medium in which “serious” musicians would explore and develop their craft. The apparently disparate genres of blues, jazz, rock, folk and even world music were fused together by many diverse acts all of whom were eager to be regarded as “progressive” in their musical approach. The so-called “underground” audience eagerly consumed this music, which sat alongside the social changes that were also taking place. Featuring over three and a half hours of newly re-mastered music over three CDs, “Let the Electric Children Play” documents the fascinating story of a unique period in the history of one of Britain’s most eccentric labels. This deluxe anthology also includes a lavishly illustrated booklet with new essay and artist biographies housed in a clamshell boxed set.

      Tangerine Dream

      Electronic Meditation

      It's incredible to think that this album came out over 40 years ago! Before Krautrock was a concept or genre, Berlin based Edgar Froese, Conrad Schnitzler and a young Klaus Schulze on drums recorded these 1969 sessions. There's a more experimental, improvisational feel to these tracks with Froese's wailing guitar solos set against the (almost) tribal drum patterns laid down by Schulze.

      Upon its release in 1970 “Electronic Meditation” and tracks such as ‘Journey Through A Burning Brain’ would define a genre of music and herald the massive creative musical explosion that would emerge in Germany in the early seventies.

      This Esoteric Reactive edition is newly remastered, fully restores the original album artwork and includes a lavishly illustrated booklet with new essay.

      TRACK LISTING

      1. Genesis
      2. Journey Through A Burning Brain
      3. Cold Smoke
      4. Ashes To Ashes
      5. Resurrection
