fever tree

...coming out from texas these cats didn't sound like too many from their home state...theres an expansiveness to the sound of the recording that gives this an otherworld feeling, a world of carefulness and slow motion, a world where its all possible, a dream like state of trancendental gloopy bubbles...first side has some string arrangements by the cat who enhanced/ruined forever changes which will help explain the otherworld vibe...their toughness of club playing gives a punch to the majestic sound, its very much upfront and demanding attention...sold well in euroland back in the day, showing those continental hep heads could dig some cool grooves even if the trees wax all bombed in the homelands...local fans at the time were not too pleased with the wax stateing that the urgency of the live playing had been lost but for cats who never saw them its the whole of the semi gothic sound that makes this so cool, in a way the fact not too many ever found out much about the combo at the time, leaving it a mystery enhances the vibes that come from digging the groovy wax...
