1966-1968 : arguably the golden era for music as we at FdM know it. 'The Three Seasons' is a bit of a tribute to the psychedelic era - the first buds forming in '66, the summer of love and the comedown in '68.

Some of Fruits de Mer's best-known artists are joined by some new faces and a few who were actually there at the time and were personally responsible for some of the amazing sounds that we're celebrating in this vinyl love-in.

The Three Seasons has taken rather a long time to grow into the 3 LP set that will be presented for your consideration in early October - although, in the end, some heavy pruning was necessary to fit everything onto six sides (it could so easily have been a 4LP set, but someone had already knicked the 'four seasons' title).

The music ranges from pop-psych to acid-folk, heavy rock to prog, from classic songs to the long-lost - the kind of thing Fruits de Mer was designed for.

So, who is responsible for the two hours+ of music between the grooves? Step forward:

Have they ever appeared to together on a compilation before? (probably, but not on an FdM one, that's for sure!). Am I excited? I certainly bloody am.
