• john mclaughlin guitaristColin Harper _ ECHOES FROM THEN cover
    If acclaimed author and musician Colin Harper's 2014 biography of virtuoso guitarist McLaughlin - Bathed In Lightning: John McLaughlin, the 60s and the Emerald Beyond - didn't bring ample and extraordinary enough detail in its vividness, this companion piece takes an important step further. Echoes From Then contains a substantially revised version of the bonus content exclusive to the e-book edition of Bathed In Lightning along with many new chapters based on recent research. Highlights include: revelatory new chapters on John’s time with Big Pete Deuchar & His Professors of Ragtime (1959–60) and the Tony Meehan Combo (1963–64); a look at probably the world’s first John McLaughlin interview, from The Wandsworth Advertiser in March 1963; an investigation into John’s ‘60s recordings with Georgie Fame; the beginnings of Graham Bond’s Quartet in 1963; Arjen Gorter’s recollections of Gunter Hampel’s Time Is Now (1968); period coverage of the release of Duffy Power’s Innovations (1971); an audience with Gene Perla, the ‘Pete Best’ of the Mahavishnu Orchestra; four chapters on the adventures of the second Mahavishnu Orchestra on the road (1974–75); and four forensic appendices covering John’s British recording and broadcasting sessions 1963–69, his US recording sessions 1969–75, his known British concert appearances from 1963–68, and the second Mahavishnu Orchestra’s concert appearances 1974–75 (all newly updated and expanded). Echoes From Then also includes licensed period content from four great British music writers of the 70s: Jerry Gilbert, Hugh Fielder, Andrew Means, Charles Shaar Murray and Richard Williams.

    Lianne Hall is a Berlin-based singer-songwriter. While her sound may be largely country-esque and folk-inspired, her soul is built on a punk rock foundation. In the late nineties, she toured Europe extensively and released records  with Witchknot, a politicised, experimental all female punk band with a significantly DIY attitude and open-minded approach to making music. Lianne has since self released a number of solo singles and mini-albums. Lianne recorded five sessions for John Peel’s BBC radio show, including a live Christmas special at Peel Acres.

      “ … a wonderfully empathic musician. Riley's history is a testament to the notion that, often, individual excellence is achieved in the context of a collective of equally empathic, articulate peers.” Duncan Heining, All About Jazz “ … a fascinating maverick on the British improv avant-garde of the 1970s. He's an enduringly valuable presence.” John Fordham, The Guardian
