Fuchsia ‎– Barrett's Allsorts 7"

 Fruits de Mer Records (Crustacean 94)

I was really sad for missing the ultra rare (50 copies) 5" lathe-cut festival release of this early Pink Floyd cover single so thanks a lot for Fruits de Mer for this second opportunity! Of course the actual festival was cancelled like almost everything else cool this year, but the singles were of course sold anyway. Tony Durant is still active with his legendary Fuchsia and this time he was helped by Susan Kim (violin), Tony Cooper (drums), Alex Bailieu-Joli (recorder) and Emma Greenhill (violin).

"See Emily Play" happens to be one of my absolute favourite Floyd/Barrett songs so I just never get too much of it. Durant's version is in just perfect balance with honoring the original and giving it a new, personal touch. Very nice! Another short but sweet Barrett treat "Bike" is on the other side and it is also excellent. I wish they would have added a couple of more Barrett songs since this just feels too short even with the extended experimental end of "Bike". Anyway, this is a must-have for all Fuchsia and Barrett fans and I am really happy to include it to my collection.
