UK four disc (three CD + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) set. Esoteric Recordings is pleased to announce the release of this anthology celebrating the career of celebrated synthesiser and electronic ambient music pioneer 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. This anthology celebrates Tim's work both as a member of Gong and Hawkwind and as a solo artist and includes tracks from all stages of his career. Most interestingly, Lighthouse also features eight previously unreleased recordings, including three from The Birth of Crystal Machine in the 1970s, along with three recordings from the so-called Forgotten Tapes and two tracks recorded live in Amsterdam and Exeter in 2006 and 2009 respectively. As a final highlight, the anthology includes a bonus DVD featuring a previously unreleased recording of Tim Blake's appearance on French television in April 1979 performing 'Generator (Laser Beam)', 'Passage Pour La Cit Des Rvlations', 'Lighthouse' and 'New Jerusalem'.
