A Band for All Seasons (Songs from the four seasons of Love 1966-1969) (Crustacean 87CD)

What can I say??? This is such an amazing release and features close to 4.5 hrs of music on 61 tracks. It features virtually everyone that has appeared on Fruits de Mer as well as some new comers but if you know the label you will recognise most of these acts.. The songs that people have chosen to cover are very diverse from super obscure stuff like Drimble Wedge and the Vegetations and 101 Strings to famous bands like Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Donavan, Small Faces, and the Beatles.  Some people take risks (Carry Grace) and many play pretty faithful versions of the originals….  The 4th CD seems to have more songs that are just single acoustic guitar and voice or at least less instrumentation. The overall quality is amazing though and it really does take you back in time and remind you of the quality of the song writing and the originality that was possible in that era, before everything had been done or tried! Fantastic and ambitious release. Check out a couple of tracks below. 

Check out the exclusive track by July.
