Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the vinyl release of a newly re-mastered edition of this classic 1978 ambient masterpiece.

Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong, and as a member of Hawkwind. After departing Gong in 1975 he teamed up with French lighting designer Patrice Warrener to form Crystal Machine, pioneering the use of lasers and synthesisers in a live setting. His debut solo album, ‘Crystal Machine’, was followed this with arguably his finest work, ‘Blake’s New Jerusalem’ in 1978. Unlike his previous work, the album featured songs and the lengthy title-track would dominate the album’s second side. ‘New Jerusalem’ also featured the guest appearance of Jean-Philippe Rykiel on mini-moog. Tim Blake would later perform both ‘Lighthouse’ and ‘New Jerusalem’ as a member of Hawkwind when he joined the band the following year.

Now regarded as a truly pioneering work, this edition of ‘Blake’s New Jerusalem’ has been newly remastered and is available again on vinyl for the first time since its original release.
