Emerson, Lake & Powell

In 1985, Emerson & Lake teamed up for an ELP reunion. Palmer was unavailable due to commitments to Asia, so they searched for any available drummer whose last name began with the letter "p". Short-listed was former Jeff Beck & Rainbow drummer Cozy Powell.

Esoteric set to reissue Patto catalog

Esoteric Recordings are set to reissue the entire Patto catalog, with a load of bonus material; SPOILER ALERT:


Esoteric to release unreleased 2nd Fields album

"Esoteric Recordings are pleased to issue the first ever release of the legendary 1972 “lost” second album self by Fields. Following the album’s release the band’s line-up changed with the departure of ALAN BARRY and the arrival of Frank Farrell from Supertramp. This line-up recorded a follow-up album in 1972 that was perplexingly shelved by CBS Records and remained consigned to the vaults for over forty years.



Originally called the Royal Servants in the 1960s, Eulenspygel's first album is curiously title "2."

Founded: 1971

Location: Reichenbach, Swabia, Germany
