New Re-mastered & Expanded Release with four previously unreleased bonus tracks. Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a new re-mastered and expanded edition of the classic 1972 soundtrack album to Roman Polanski’s gritty film of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. Originally released on EMI’s Harvest label in March 1972, the album featured a new line-up of Third Ear Band featuring Paul Minns (oboe and recorder), Glen Sweeney (drums), Paul Buckmaster (cello and bass guitar), Simon House (violin and VCS 3 synthesiser) and Demin Bridges (guitars).
The darkly evocative and eerie music of Third Ear Band fitted perfectly with Roman Polanski’s cinematic vision of the acclaimed Shakespearian drama starring Jon Finch, Francesca Annis and Martin Shaw.
This expanded edition of “Music from Macbeth” has been newly re-mastered from the original Harvest master tapes and includes four previously unreleased bonus tracks. The reissue restores the original album artwork and features an illustrated booklet with essay.
