Description

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1978 ambient masterpiece Blakes New Jerusalem by Tim Blake. Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong, where his synthesiser experimentation and mastery was demonstrated on albums such as Flying Teapot, Angels Egg and You. He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 1980 and from November 2007. After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesisers in a live setting. Balkes debut solo album, Crystal Machine, was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg. Tim followed this with arguably his finest work, Blakes New Jerusalem in 1978. Unlike his previous work, the album featured songs and the lengthy title-track would dominate the albums second side. New Jerusalem also featured the guest appearance of Jean-Philippe Rykiel on mini-moog. Tim Blake would later perform both Lighthouse and New Jerusalem as a member of Hawkwind when he joined the band the following year. Now regarded as a truly pioneering work, this edition of Blakes New Jerusalem has been newly remastered and includes three bonus tracks previously unreleased on CD; The Woodland Voice, From Outta Space and Jupiter to Jerusalem (all home demos).
