Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of a newly re-mastered edition of the classic 1977 ambient masterpiece 'Crystal Machine' by Tim Blake. Tim first came to prominence as a member of Gong where his synthesiser experimentation and mastery was demonstrated on albums such as Flying Teapot', 'Angel's Egg' and 'You'. He would also join Hawkwind from 1979 - 1980 and from November 2007.

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.
Blake's debut album, 'Crystal Machine', was originally released in 1977 on the French experimental label Egg and featured two pieces recorded live in the UK and in France.

Now regarded as a truly pioneering work, this edition of 'Crystal Machine' has been newly remastered and includes three bonus tracks. 'Surf' was recorded in 1976 at Chateau d'Herouville studios in France and issued as a very rare single under the pseudonym Saratoga Space Messengers. The reissue also includes both sides of the rare Spanish single 'Synthese Intemporel' as bonus tracks.

The booklet features a new essay and fully restores the original album artwork.
