TONY BANKS: "A Curious Feeling"
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS
ECLEC 2160 (Standard single CD edition) /
ECLEC 22161 (Limited Deluxe CD & DVD edition)

Released: 19th October 2009


Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of the album "A Curious Feeling" by GENESIS founder member and keyboard player TONY BANKS on Monday October 19th 2009. This classic album, inspired by the novel "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes, was first released in October 1979 by Charisma Records. Recorded at Polar Studios in Stockholm, whilst Genesis were on a brief hiatus following the "And Then There Were Three" tour, this majestic work featured contributions from drummer CHESTER THOMPSON (a member of GENESIS for concert appearances) and vocalist KIM BEACON.

Stylistically the album is equal to anything Banks composed for GENESIS and includes the instrumental "The Waters of Lethe" and the song "For a While" (also released as a single) among its highlights. Significantly, this new edition of "A Curious Feeling" has been remixed from the original master tapes by Nick Davis (who also remixed the entire GENESIS catalogue in 2007) and Tony Banks, resulting in a more dynamic sounding album.

In addition, a new 5.1 Surround mix has also been prepared which is included on a limited 2 disc deluxe edition of "A Curious Feeling" along with the rare promotional videos of "For a While" and "The Waters of Lethe". A top thirty hit album upon its release, these editions of "A Curious Feeling" are the definitive statements on the 1979 solo work by TONY BANKS and will be backed with a media campaign of interviews and features.

This is an excellent remaster. It does justice to the original LP, which sounds great, and brings out sounds I had never heard before, such as little intonations in Kim's voice and strums of the guitar.

The liner notes alone are amazing too. So many revelations about the album and Tony's music during the 70s.

the link you have listed here for esoteric is not functional. I was able to get there from the main site through the 'Artists' list...the banner at the splash page is not working.

I know Tony's considering a "Best of" collection so far. Hopefully if that does well, he'll consider doing the full albums. It's getting harder to find them.
