Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever release of HARRODIAN EVENT #1 . Recorded in January 1972, this rare recording features a unique event where seven gifted Progressive musicians came together to record a session of unique experimental music. Keyboard player J. Peter Robinson (a member of QUATERMASS, later in BRAND X), John Gustafson (Bass) had also been in Quatermass and would go on to play with STEVE HACKETT, IAN GILLAN and ROXY MUSIC), Martyn Ford had been an arranger for BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST before working with the major names in rock, Paul Buckmaster had worked with DAVID BOWIE, THIRD EAR BAND and many more, whilst Trevor Morais would find fame in QUANTUM JUMP and working with the PENGUIN CAFÉ ORCHESTRA. The music of the Harrodian Event touches on the styles later developed by artists such as Henry Cow or even Frank Zappa. It is experimental, unique and rewarding. This Esoteric Recordings release has been remastered by J. Peter Robinson, who also wrote the essay in the accompanying illustrated booklet.
