NEWLY REMASTERED EDITION OF THIS CLASSIC 1976 PROGRESSIVE / JAZZ ROCK ALBUM
WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK AND NEW LINER NOTES
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic jazz rock album “Transformation (The Speed of Love)” by DAVID SANCIOUS & TONE. An accomplished guitarist and keyboard player, Sancious first came to prominence as a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band in the early 1970s, appearing on Springsteen’s first three albums before opting to pursue a solo career. He formed the group Tone in 1974 with drummer Ernest Carter (a fellow ex- Springsteen musician) and bass player Gerald Carboy. With Springsteen’s assistance Sancious secured a contract with Epic Records that year and recorded the album “Forest of Feelings” soon after.
The second album “Transformation (The Speed of Love)” was released in 1976 and followed the form of Sancious’ debut album, drawing on Progressive and Jazz Rock influences. Produced by Sancious and Bruce Botnik, “Transformation” featured the epic side-long title track and was another excellent work. “Transformation” enjoyed a fleeting appearance on CD and has long been unavailable. This Esoteric Recordings release has been newly re-mastered and features a booklet that fully restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay by Sid Smith.
