Curved Air / The Albums 1970-1973

Remastered albums on CD

A new Curved Air four-CD box set called The Albums 1970-1973 will be released later this month.

The package features newly remastered (from the original master tapes) versions of the first four long players: Air Conditioning (1970), Second Album (1971), Phantasmagoria (1972) and Air Cut (1973) along with a few choice bonus cuts.

The English progressive rock band – initially, Sonja Kristina (vocals), Darryl Way (violin), Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesiser), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums) – signed to Warner Bros in 1970 and recorded the four albums included in this box set.

They went on to make two further albums (Midnight Wire (1975) and Airborne (1976)) on Miles Copeland’s short-lived BTM Records label. Miles’ brother Stewart Copeland played drums on both records (and went on to have a long relationship with the Curved Air’s vocalist Sonja Kristina). The Police was his next band!

The Albums 1970-1973 is packaged in a clamshell box and comes with an illustrated booklet. It will be released on 29 January 2021 via Esoteric.
