Various Artists-Roqueting Through Space (Fruits De Mer Volume 18)

 much much improved from my original rip taken from my own vinyl rip of the LP & 7 inch on my new vintage technics turntable

Our description of spacerock took on an inceasingly Germanic accent with some serious detours into parallel universes, as we gradually built up the tracks – and we ended up with so much good stuff, we ended up having to produce a 12″ + 7″ package, which we then decided to house in a fantastic gatefold sleeve – 19″ of commercial madness. We’ve called it ‘Roqueting Through Space’ – we don’t rightly know why, maybe the cover image gives a clue/excuse – but we booked an ad promoting it in Record Collector, so we had to decide on something.

The cover is courtesy of Gregory Curvey, he of The Luck of Eden Hall, who also feature on the album) – the kind of thing that will have Vertigo, Charisma and Harvest fans drooling
