Product Description

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of Reaffirmation, a comprehensive anthology by the unsung heroes of British early 70s rock, Help Yourself. Help Yourself was formed in London in 1970, originally as a backing band for singer-songwriter Malcolm Morley and took their influences from American West Coast Country and Acid Rock. After Morley signed to the Famepushers management stable, his manager John Eichler suggested Morley form a new band and Help Yourself was born. Featuring Malcolm Morley (guitars, keyboards, vocals), former Sam Apple Pie member Dave Charles (drums, percussion, vocals), Richard Treece (guitars, vocals, harmonica) and Ken Whaley (bass), the band signed to United Artists in 1970 and their eponymous debut album was issued in 1971. Forty years on, Help Yourself is now regarded as one of the great, unsung British bands of their era. This anthology gathers together the essential tracks from all of their albums released by United Artists, newly re-mastered from the original master tapes. It features a booklet with essay by Michael Heatley and is a tribute to their genius.

Format: Audio CD
Having not sold in quantity at the time HELP YOURSELF albums have become pricey suckers on the auction circuit over the last few years - and this superlatively presented 2CD set on Esoteric Recordings of the UK (part of Cherry Red) is a great way of accessing their British Country Rock/Prog leanings for a reasonable cost. It has fab presentation and quality remastering too. Here are the Electric Fur Trappers and Strange Affairs...

THE most under-rated band of the 70s. If you like West Coast, countrified rock with extended guitar solos this is a MUST HAVE. With their studio albums having not been re-released and trading for over £125 on eBay this is great value.

Despite the age - this is my first Help Yourself cd. I love it - bit like a soft less edgy version of my beloved Man Band. Great for chilling

A trip back in time. Cousins of the Manband but even more west coast and far more laid back. One of the very best albums you will ever find for chilling out to. In the early seventies I used to follow Man all over but missed out on the Helps although I was always aware of them. I am really enjoying catching up now. Perhaps they were too mellow for me in my youth but now I Iove most of this compilation especially 'Old Man' (appropriately!), 'Blown Away', 'Reaffirmation' and 'American Mother'. The only track I previously owned was 'Eddie Waring' featuring Deke Leonard on leave from Man, it's hard edge is slightly at odds with the rest of the album but is still worthy of inclusion. I could have done without the Christmas single (hence only four stars). So, buy this, relax into seventies hippy mode and chill!

A band I want to hear with its association with the Welsh band Man - on first listen they are sounding pretty good
