Jellyfish was a band from San Francisco that entertained with their Power Pop style. And although they were s short-lived band, they left behind a world of goodness over two excellent long-players that include Bellybutton (1990), and Spilt Milk from 1993. And if you have heard any of them, you probably enjoy them a lot.
On August 25, Omnivore Records will release 2CD remastered Deluxe Editions of Bellybutton, and Jellyfish Presents Spilt Milk.
Spilt Milk will contain on the first CD, the remastered original twelve tracks, tacking on six demo tracks. The second disc will delight with a collection of eleven more demo tracks, augmented with seven live tracks, and cherry-topped with “Think About Your Troubles”, and “Fan Club Message”.
The set will be released in digipak housing, and will include a booklet that features a booklet with photos, memorabilia, a new essay by Ken Sharp, and track-by-track commentaries of the original tracks by band members, Andy Sturmer, and Joseph Manning, Jr.
On Bellybutton, the first CD will feature the remastered original ten-track album, and completed with ten live performance tracks. The second disc will include a whopping 16 demo tracks. Like Spilt Milk, the digipak Deluxe Edition of Bellybutton will feature a booklet with photos, memorabilia, an essay by Ken Sharp, and track-by-track commentaries of the original album by Sturmer, and Manning.
If you love great Power Pop like the kind that Cheap Trick, Queen, and other excellent Power Pop band of the ’70s, and ’80s presented to you, and you do not know Jellyfish, they are worth your discovery time. Absolutely worth the time!
