Fuchsia Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
'Fuchsia' is the classic debut album recorded in 1971 by Fuchsia. Long out of print in an official version, Fruits de Mer have extended the package to a double LP -- in anticipation of their appearance at the annual FdM Summer festival. The expanded record includes early, previously unheard demos by the band as well as new recordings of songs pre-dating the original album. Also included is a DVD featuring Tony Durant filling in some vital background information; a fold-out poster of the album cover art; a 24-page A4 magazine with Richard Morton Jack's 'Flashback' feature and reproduced handwritten song lyrics. On heavyweight coloured vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
Fuchsia here combine music from throughout their career onto one double 7” set. Song contains a 1967 track from the very first studio version of the band, tracks from the group’s notable '70s albums, and some unheard recordings to preview a forthcoming new album. And if that wasn’t enough of a treat, the double 7” comes with a reproduction of an old gig program! Lovely stuff on Fruits de Mer.
Me and My Kites, with Tony Durant of Fuchsia
Collaboration between psychedelic pop group Me and My Kites, and Tony Durant who was the lead singer of '70s prog band Fuchsia. Me and My Kites were named after a song by Fuchsia, and Durant sings on their cover of 'The Band', which is pretty cool. Nice harmonies and a cheerful hippie vibe. 7" vinyl on Fruits De Mer.
