Al suo ricco catalogo di ristampe e riedizioni di lavori soprattutto del progressive inglese degli anni sessanta e settanta - non tutte di indiscusso successo tecnico - la Esoteric Recordings ha da poco aggiunto il primo lavoro orchestrale di David Bedford prodotto per la Virgin, nel 1974: Star's End. La partitura fu allora affidata alla Royal Philharmonic Orchestra diretta da Vernon Handley, con Chris Cutler alle percussioni e Mike Oldfield - invece di Steve Hillage e Mick Taylor, come inizialmente previsto - a chitarra e basso elettrici.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the superb 1974 album by David Bedford Star’s End. The album was Bedford’s first release for Virgin Records and was a piece especially commissioned to be performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The album was also significant for the presence of Mike Oldfield on guitar and bass and also for Chris Cutler of Henry Cow on percussion. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes, includes a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork and features a new essay.
