Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new expanded and remastered two CD edition of the classic 1971 album by the British Progressive Rock group SPRING.
 
Spring came together at the end of the 1960s and their unique brand of Progressive Rock caught the attention of Kingsley Ward, the founder of Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, when the band’s van broke down in the town on the way back to Leicester from a concert in South Wales. 
 
Through Rockfield, Spring came to the attention of Gus Dudgeon and Tuesday Productions who signed the band to a recording contract. The album "Spring” was released on the legendary RCA NEON label in 1971 and featured a line-up of PAT MORAN (Vocals, Mellotron), ADRIAN MOLONEY (Bass), KIPPS BROWN (Keyboards), RAY MARTINEZ (Guitar, Mellotron) and PICK WITHERS (Drums, Percussion).
 
Produced by Gus Dudgeon, "SPRING” has now become regarded as one of the great unsung masterpieces of the classic Progressive Rock era. This album has now been remastered from the original master tapes and also features a bonus CD of twelve tracks, released officially for the first time, of material intended for a second, unreleased album.
 
Remastered from tapes in the possession of the estate of Pat Moran and in the vaults of Tuesday Productions, this Esoteric Recordings release is the definitive edition of this classic album.
