Esoteric Records Presents Mike Pinder Boxset

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce release of a Deluxe 3 Disc CD & DVD set by MOODY BLUES founder and keyboard player MIKE PINDER. Noted for his pioneering use of the Mellotron on the “Classic Seven” albums by the Moody Blues, Mike recorded a solo album, “The Promise”, (released in 1976) before departing the Moody Blues during sessions for the “Octave” album. Settling in California, Mike pursued many interests before releasing a follow up solo album, “Among the Stars” in 1994 as a private mail order release.
This deluxe boxed set features remastered versions of both albums, along with three new bonus tracks, “If She Came Back” by Mike and “Waves Crash” and “Empty Streets” by the Pinder Brothers (featuring RAY THOMAS on flute), produced by Moody Blues producer, the late Tony Clarke.
It also includes a DVD (over an hour in duration) with extensive interviews with Mike on his time with the Moody Blues, his personal philosophies and exclusive solo performances of his music.
The set is released on October the 28th and can be pre-ordered directly from Cherry Red Records on this link.
The album will also be available from Amazon and all good retailers.Layout 1

    Best sound yet!. Wish you could make MB Cruise next year. It think it would get the sound out in the view of some of the most die hard fans. Mike Try to be there. Would love to her Simple Game “upplugged” No better yet there is no sound better the your Mellotron. PS Your music helped me all of those years ago. My Children and Granchildren find peace in it still.

    My copy just dropped through my mail slot. Looks great. Congratulations!
    At first glance, I don’t see any indication of when the bonus tracks were recorded (obviously sometime before January 2010 when Tony Clarke died).
    And who are the people sitting around the table in the photo? I recognize Tony Clarke, and I’m assuming those are the musicians in your son’s band.
    Lastly, why did you not include the bonus tracks that were on the earlier release of The Promise? I believe there are a lot of fans of those two songs.
    Thanks for the music.
