Hail to the drummer; Barrie Wilson - powerhouse behind the kit.
The last time we were here was May 2009 when Salvo of the UK released their "40th Anniversary Edition" CD remaster of "A Salty Dog" on SALVOCD 020 (Barcode 698458812025 will identify that reissue). That remastered single CD reissue came housed in a gatefold hard card sleeve and boasted 6 bonus tracks chosen by Gary Brooker – a non-album B-side "Long Gone Geek", 4 Previously Unreleased live tracks from an American Tour in April 1969 with the LP Line-Up of the band in fine form and finally one "Raw Track, Take 1" of "The Milk Of Human Kindness". This time around we get a 2CD "Deluxe Edition" issued Friday, 31 July 2015 in the UK (August 2015 in the USA) on Esoteric Recordings ECLEC 22503 (Barcode 5013929460348 identifies the correct issue) which gives us a 2nd CD with 12-tracks – 5 of which are Previously Unreleased. All six of the Salvo bonus tracks return on Disc 2 - along with the 7" Single Mono Mix of "A Salty Dog" and the 5 previously unreleased cuts already mentioned. Here are the ship-shape details for the 2015 Esoteric Recordings 2CD Version...
Disc 1 (40:38 minutes):
1. A Salty Dog
2. The Milk Of Human Kindness
3. Too Much Between Us
4. The Devil Came From Kansas

Thanks to infrequent but judicious radio play from the likes of John Peel, Alan Freeman etc. the title track from this album did, over the years infiltrate my sub-conscious to the point where my curiosity got the better of me and I bought the album. I was well into my twenties. The title track is an absolute masterpiece and all else on the album is neccessarily in its shadow. But look and listen closely there are other sparkling gems in that shade.
It seemed timeless and ageless when I first bought it in the eighties and hearing it again remastered and repackaged with interesting extra tracks it still does. All hands on deck! Immerse yourself in its beauty.
