Meticulous Facsimile of the Original 1977 album pressed on Premium Grade 180gm Vinyl from the Original Analogue Master with a Bonus Download ticket!

This ‘Back To Black’ LIMITED Vinyl LP EDITION re-issue of the old ‘Progressive’ album: ‘Gone To Earth’ provides a perfect replacement for that old valued original you once owned, but parted with to help subsidize replacing your collection with CD’s in the 80’s and 90’s’… and now wish you’d never let it go!!

Released in 1977, ‘Gone To Earth’ was the 4th BJH album for Polydor Records and it continued a slightly more mainstream approach to their song writing and started to take the band’s music to a much wider audience, especially in Europe where they were building a huge fan-base and had become a massive ‘live’ act.
The bands use of the Mellotron was part of the reason that some cynics referred to them as being a “poor man’s Moody Blues” and so the band thought it would be a good idea to record a “Nights In White Satin” styled song and call it exactly that… ‘Poor Man’s Moody Blues’!

‘Gone To Earth’ featured a special die-cut outer sleeve where the artwork on the inner sleeve could be seen through a shaped hole on the front of the outer cover – a similar effect to that created on the 1974 PFM album: ‘The World Became The World’ – and that effect has been re-created for this 2014 re-issue.

The musician line-up for ‘Gone To Earth’ was Les Holroyd (vocals / bass / guitar), John Lees (vocals / guitars), Woolly Wolstenholme (keyboards / Mellotron / vocals) and Mel Pritchard (drums / percussion).

‘Gone To Earth’ is also available as a Remastered CD with Bonus Tracks – Stock # 486926
