Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a re-mastered edition of the classic 1975 debut album by the legendary BOXER.
Formed by vocalist MIKE PATTO and guitarist OLLIE HALSALL two years after the demise of cult heroes PATTO, the line-up of the band was completed by bassist KEITH ELLIS (formerly with Van Der Graaf Generator, Juicy Lucy and Spooky Tooth) and drummer TONY NEWMAN (formerly with the JEFF BECK GROUP and KEVIN AYERS’ band). Signing to Virgin Records in 1975, BOXER recorded their debut album, “Below the Belt” at The Manor Studio in Oxfordshire. Appearing briefly on CD in the 1990s, the album has been unavailable for fifteen years.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes the bonus track ‘Don’t Wait’, B-side of the band’s first single. The reissue features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with an informative essay.
