Details: ESG's classic 1983 album, reissued by Fire Records on CD digipak, 2018. New stock, sealed. 

Description: "Discovered at a talent contest, ESG was the group of New York sisters who took soul and funk and stripped everything away so you were left with spindly and skeletal compositions heavy on the bass and minimal guitar. Factory Records saw the power in them and were involved in its initial release with legendary producer Martin Hannett doing some exploratory recordings with the band. The album has passed into legend being an influence on house and hip-hop and being sampled all over the place."

The sample-friendly opus that's the inspiration for hip-hop, house, and post-punk. "A lasting document of their unique brand of minimal funk that would influence subsequent post-punk, hip-hop, and dance music acts. Stripped down to the most basic of drumbeats and rudimentary bass lines, 'Come Away,' confirms the notion that the real rhythm is what happens between the beats."--AllMusic
