2014 Expanded Remaster with 5 Bonus Tracks of the classic 1976 debut album by this amazingly talented and unique band!

QUANTUM JUMP are a unique and highly talented bunch of musicians and they made two albums in the mid 70’s that are essential if you have a liking from CARAVAN’s style of dynamic fusion inspired Canterbury Prog, laced with that same healthy sense of humour in the lyrical department.
The first album was good, but for me they really came to a classy peak with their compositions on the ‘Barracuda’ album, with songs riddled with strong melodies, big hooks, clever and humorous lyrical storytelling and backing it all up the stylish, quality playing, these are two criminally ignored 70’s albums that still stand proud today as classic pieces of work, but as they say, it is never too late to catch up and get into great music, especially from such a brilliant band as QUANTUM JUMP!
The band first came together at Farmyard studios in Buckinghamshire in 1974 and comprised Rupert Hine (vocals / keyboards), former CARAVAN member John G. Perry (bass / vocals), Mark Warner (guitar) and former PEDDLERS member Trevor Morais (drums). Their self-titled debut album was written and recorded at Farmyard studios throughout 1975 and was eventually released on the Decca’s Electric Records label in 1976 to critical acclaim. Stylistically, QJ feature a unique fusion of rock and jazz-rock, displaying the excellent musicianship of the band members, along with a healthy sense of humour.

The ‘Quantum Jump’ album featured outstanding tracks such as: ‘No American Starship’, ‘Something At The Bottom Of the Sea’ and perhaps the band’s most famous track: ‘The Lone Ranger’ (originally issued as a single in 1976 and after considerable airplay was banned by the BBC for its lyrical content, but after a remix in 1979, the track became a top five UK hit.

This newly Remastered re-issue it taken from the Original Tapes and includes 5 Rare Bonus Tracks, taken from a Single and the 1979 remix compilation album: ‘Mixing’. It also includes a Booklet that fully restores the Original Album Artwork and a New Essay.
