V/A - Let the Electric Children Play: The Underground Story Of Transatlantic Records 1968-1976

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.. The full display configuration for this product, including value adds, is: 3 x CD Album
