Finally this classic (previously CD-only) 2004 album is released on vinyl. Featuring a brand new sleeve with a vintage 1965 Michael Dailey painting and pressed on lovely 140gm vinyl, this - once again - is a wonderful new release on our label. With a much darker and heavier feel, this records, while retaining Jeff Kelly's gift for melody and a great hook, does remind me a lot of Crazy Horse on records such as EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE. The album highlights Kelly's much underrated guitar playing and I do wonder why not more has been made of this in the past by other reviewers. His playing is inventive, melodic and unpredictable -much like his songwriting. As our friends at Popmatters.com put it back it when this was first released: "The Green Pajamas exist in a place where music meets art. That is not to say that they affect a self-consciously important attitude. This is the organic definition, the one where art is, at its essence, a mode of expression for the human race. What the band does, and has done for two decades now, is craft gorgeous songs that convey a particular mood. They build slow and strong melodies and surround them with breathing, meandering guitar lines. The lyrics betray the world: loneliness and frustration but also love and hope. It's the crafting that is important and the Green Pajamas never forget it. They bring us this art in a determined way, by still being vibrant after so many years and reflecting the nature of their own universe. The fact that they can pull this off in a possibly disastrous live-in-the-studio format only further attests to their hard work and sincerity." Limited to only 250 copies on deluxe 140gm vinyl. Remastered from the original recordings by Tom Dyer.
