Product Description

CD Description

* NEW REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC1978 ALBUM BY THE LEGENDARY LINDISFARNE
* FEATURES THE HIT SINGLE "RUN FOR HOME"
* BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a new remastered edition of the wonderful 1978 album by LINDISFARNE, "BACK & FOURTH".

The album was the first by the band for some years and was the reforming of the group who had enjoyed hit singles and albums in the early part of the decade. Produced by Gus Dudgeon, "Back and Fourth" featured the hit single `Run For Home' written by Alan Hull and marked a return to form for the Newcastle group.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue is remastered, includes two bonus tracks and a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork and features a new essay.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
After a run of three great albums, Lindisfarne split, with Alan Hull keeping the name and going on to form Lindisfarne MKII, and most of the rest forming Jack the Lad. Both bands enjoyed success, and made some good albums, but in 1978 re-merged and the original Lindisfarne line-up went back into the recording studio, with this gem as their first album.

The sound has moved on a bit from the early albums, a bit less folky, a bit more rocky and with an eye on the pop market. Whereas Folk contemporaries Fairport were rather lost at the end of the seventies, Lindisfarne adapted, and while not fitting in with the prevailing sounds they didn't sound horribly out of step either. Whilst I love the early stuff, `Fog on the Tyne' especially, this stands out as my favourite of all their albums.

The quality of songwriting is excellent throughout and incredibly consistent. There are no weak tracks or filler to be found here. Standouts for me are `Run For Home', second only to `Lady Eleanor' as their greatest song. Then there is the political `Marshal Riley's Army', the story of the Jarrow marchers, and the lessons that haven't been learnt since (and still haven't learned over 30 years after the album was recorded!) There is the great `Warm Feeling', a really bouncy and jaunty expression of love and the happiness that being in love brings. `King's Cross Blues', the story of a train journey from Newcastle to London. The rest of the tracks are equally as great.

This re-release boasts a new remastering that sounds pretty darned good, really nice and clear compared to my older, murkier release. And the icing on the cake, 2 bonus tracks that I have never previously heard and really add to the set. It's an excellent release.

A great album from a great group. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back and Fourth, Back to Form 10 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nice to B&F re-mastered, and it's a gud un, especially important to appreciate the texture of the instruments, the highlights and harmonies that make it so good. "Warm feeling" was a radio hit in the late 78 (and probably pitched as the advertising single.) and rightly so - you will sing it to yourself when the mood takes. "Run for Home" (RFH) often gets radio play, but if you judged the album on RFH you would not get a good overall impression. RFH is for the 'mums and dads', a great advert for the evocative sound of the Clarinet - nothing wrong with that, with added great lyrics and harmonies. Inevitably RFH will/has become a song that Lindisfarne are known for along with the 'Gazza version' of "Fog on the Tyne"....

The remainder of the music is comparatively rebellious and edgy, at a time when old folksy style rockers like Lindisfarne were going out of fashion, or just about too, in a big way. This is a more 'mature', maybe even confident Lindisfarne, sensing that the musical scene was changing and saying 'what the heck, let's do our thing.' The rich arrangements and attention to detail are accompanied by a feeling of spontaneity, adding to the magic. There is a prototype version of "Make Me Want to Stay " on the Alan Hull Phantoms Album, but this is the matured version.

Lindisfarne kept going for long after B&F, long afterwards and I recommend "The news" and "Sleepless nights" although they seem to have become a bit rare on Amazon as of this writing. Glad I go them when I did. "Dance Your Life Away" is a bit of a disappointment for me - adopting an 8o's sound and style, quickly produced, not bringing out the best craftsmanship of Lindisfarne, if I dare to say that with the great Alan Hull involved. "Amigos" from the 80's sees a return to form. It's the song writing and arrangements that make Lindisfarne favourites for life.

Edit : Proper aficionados will tell you this is a comeback album for the werkin class geordie boys.
