Goldfish- 10 years of Fruits de Mer (Crustacean 84/85)

To celebrate their 10 year anniversary the label has created this 3LP + 7" set, in a triple gatefold sleeve, on colour vinyl with a huge selection of tracks from the first 10 years of FdM. It features many of the labels most popular bands like Vibravoid, The Pretty Things, Cranium Pie, Sendelica, Nick Nicely , The Chemistry Set, Stay , the Soft Hearted Scientists, Tir na nOg, Jack Elliste. It is a mix of original songs and covers of songs.  All tracks are taken from their back-catalogue. Apparently, there are a couple of new/extended mixes in there as well but they are not denoted on the promo information. It is a great collection of classic and willfully-obscure songs taken from, or heavily influenced by, the 60s and early 70s, as is most of the stuff on the label. My fave tracks were Stay, Vibravoid, The Pretty Things, Astralasia, Superfjord and Tor Peders. A great collection.  You can see the full list of tracks at this link:
