This is the second album by the Scroggins sisters, a/k/a ESG -Emerald, Sapphire and Gold - South Bronx finest. ‘Come Away with ESG’ was originally issued in 1983 on 99 Records, the New York independent record company home to a host of New York underground artists such as Liquid Liquid, Glenn Branca and The Bush Tetras. ESG’s first recordings were the classic triumvirate of ‘Moody’, ‘UFO’ and ‘You’re No Good’, all recorded at E.A.R.S. studio in New York for Factory Records and produced by the legendary Martin Hannett. After being released as a single on the Manchester label, a subsequent album was issued on Ed Bahlman’s 99 Records made up of these three recordings on one side and live tracks from Hurrahs night-club in NYC on the other. The influence of ESG’s music cannot be over-stated. Who else could claim the admiration of their South Bronx neighbours in the nascent Hip-Hop community, Larry Levan at the Paradise Garage and the post-punk worlds of both the UK and USA? ESG’s notoriety and credibility was firmly established by the time of this second album. Produced by label owner/manager Bahlman and recorded at New York’s Radio City Music Hall studios, the album gives the audience exactly what it wants. A killer re-make of ‘Moody (spaced out)’, instant classics such as ‘The Beat’ and ‘Dance’, punk-funk instrumentals such as ‘Chistelle’ (named after drummer Valerie’s new-born daughter and nowadays herself the guitarist in ESG!) and others - without a duff track in there.
