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.
