Description

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1977 album Barracuda by Quantum Jump. The band came together at Farmyard studios in Buckinghamshire in 1974 and comprised Rupert Hine (Vocals, Keyboards), former Caravan member John G. Perry (Bass, Vocals), Mark Warner (guitar) and former Peddlers member Trevor Morais (drums). The bands self-titled debut album was written and recorded at Farmyard studios throughout 1975 and was eventually released on the Electric Records label in 1976 to critical acclaim. Stylistically the album featured a unique fusion of jazz and rock, displaying the excellent musicianship of the band members, along with a healthy sense of humour. The album featured the bands most famous track The Lone Ranger (later a hit single in 1979). For this, the bands second album, guitarist Mark Warner was replaced by Paul Keogh and the band were also joined by guests such as Geoffrey Richardson (ex-Caravan) on Viola, Elkie Brooks (as guest vocalist on the albums title track) and members of the Penguin Caf Orchestra.
