...news on the lathe-cut LP to follow...
Fruits de Mer Records is/are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of a double CD of classic 60s psych covers by Michigan-based artist, songwriter, and producer Jeremy Morris. Jeremy runs JAM Records in the USA and is one of the most prolific artists I’ve worked with.
Although his back-catalogue is full to overflowing, Jeremy has recorded many of the tracks on ‘Side to Side’ specifically for this release – playing tribute to bands such as The Pretty Things, The Lemon Pipers, Pink Floyd and The Byrds.
CD one includes three massively extended versions of ‘Green Tambourine’, ‘Spirit In The Sky’ and ‘Crimson and Clover’, plus the one original track on the complete set, ‘Revolution #7’; CD two ends with a take on ‘Peter Gunn’ – a bit outside the remit of the project but just a fun way to end things.
Although Jeremy plays live regularly with his band The Lemon Clocks (who have featured several times over the years on the Fruits de Mer label), on this set all bar ‘Crimson and Clover’ are credited to Jeremy alone (although he roped in various friends to join him in the studio).
There is so much music contained across the two CDs, a full-blown vinyl release would have required a four LP box-set – a bit of a stretch in these cash-strapped times – but there WILL be a limited run of lathe-cut LPs produced at the same time as the double CD, containing two of those extended tracks – ‘Green Tambourine’ and ‘Crimson and Clover’.
Here's the full track listing:
