ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are proud to release the classic 1976 album "KITES" by JADE WARRIOR. This wonderful band first came to attention with a clutch of albums recorded for Vertigo Records in the early 1970's. By 1974 they had become the vision of flautist JON FIELD and guitarist TONY DUHIG and had signed to Island Records. Noted by CHRIS BLACKWELL as one of his favourite groups, the four albums recorded by JADE WARRIOR for Island were classic ambient works, stunning in their beauty and power. "KITES" was JADE WARRIOR's third fine album for the label, and remains an outstanding listening experience. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and fully restores the original album artwork.
