“Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered and expanded 3 disc clamshell box set edition of the album, “McGear” by MIKE McGEAR, featuring 2CDs and a DVD. Originally released in 1974, McGear was the second solo album by Mike McGear (McCartney) and was a more “serious” record than his work with the Liverpool satirical trio Scaffold, or his work with Roger McGough on the “McGough & McGear” album. Recorded at Strawberry studios in Stockport, (the musical home of the band 10cc), the album was produced by PAUL McCARTNEY (who also played on the album and co-wrote most of the material with Mike) and featured LINDA McCARTNEY and members of WINGS, along with guests such as PADDY (“Pipes”) MOLONEY of The Chieftains. The album featured a selection of tremendous songs such as ‘Rainbow Lady’, ‘Simply Love You’, ‘Givin’ Grease a Ride’ and ‘The Man Who Found God on the Moon’. McGear also featured an inspired cover of the Roxy Music song ‘Sea Breezes’, the evocative ‘The Casket’ and the hit single ‘Leave It’. The sessions also spawned a non-album single; ‘Dance the Do’ (which featured Vivian Stanshall).

“McGear” was charming, eccentric and unique in equal measure and was one of the great unsung albums of its time. Now acclaimed, but unavailable on CD for over twenty years, this long awaited expanded three disc edition reissue of “McGear” has been compiled with the full involvement of Mike (McGear) McCartney and has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes. It has an additional 21 bonus tracks, including 13 previously unreleased out-takes and tracks alongside singles appearing on CD for the first time. The set also includes a DVD featuring Mike (McGear) McCartney reminiscing at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, an interview with Mike at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool and the 1974 promotional film for the single ‘Leave It’. The set also includes an illustrated booklet with new essay and a poster and is a fine tribute to the eccentric genius of McGEAR”.

(…) “There were exceptions, of course (Joe Cocker, the Monkees, most of the Motown crew), and most bands did toss at least a few covers into their repertoire, but for the most part artistic credibility was assessed, at least in part, by songwriting chops alongside the artist’s playing and singing.
Three Dog Night,  formed in 1967, was one of those exceptions, a band whose value lie not in its compositional skills but in its knack for choosing songs, written by others, that fit their style and continually broadened their appeal. They were song interpreters, not song creators. Over the course of six years, 1969-75, the trio of vocalists—Danny Hutton, Cory Wells and Chuck Negron—placed 22 singles onto the Billboard Hot 100, of which an astounding half made it to the top 10. Three of those reached the coveted #1 spot.
But what made Three Dog Night such a unique phenomenon was not only their success rate, but the fact that no two of those songs sounded alike. 3DN had impeccable taste, and in the process of crafting hits that defined them they introduced or, at the very least, boosted the profile of some of the best songwriters of the era, among them Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams, Hoyt Axton and Leo Sayer” (…).
