NEW REMASTERED BEST OF COMPILATION BY THE LEGENDARY IRISH PROGRESSIVE ROCK BAND FRUUPP • REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES • FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY BY FRUUP MANAGER & LYRICIST PAUL CHARLES


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered collection that celebrates the best of the legendary Irish Progressive Rock band Fruupp. Formed in Belfast in 1971, the band featured Pete Farrelly (bass guitar, flute, lead vocals), Vincent McCusker (lead guitar, vocals), Stephen Houston (keyboards, oboe, vocals) and Martin Foye (drums, percussion). The band signed with Pye Records’ Progressive label DAWN in 1973 and were a much-loved act on the British concert circuit, sharing billings with such luminaries as Genesis, ELO, Hawkwind, Man, Supertramp, Queen et al. The band’s first album “Future Legends” was issued in October that year and saw the band gain a loyal following. The band’s follow up album, “Seven Secrets”, was issued in April 1974 and was a wonderful exercise in Symphonic and Melodic rock, the album was highly acclaimed upon release. Released in November 1974, “The Prince of Heaven’s Eyes” was Fruupp’s third album and their most ambitious to date, being a conceptual work. Prior to the recording of the band’s fourth album, keyboard player Stephen Houston departed the band to be replaced by John Mason on keyboards, vibes and vocals. “Modern Masquerades” would be Fruupp’s final album and was produced by former King Crimson member Ian McDonald and was arguably one of their most polished works. This new assortment has been compiled by Fruupp lyricist and manager Paul Charles, who has also written a new essay for the illustrated booklet and has been remastered from the original master tapes.
