So boyz-n-girlz – A couple years ago Jeff and Susanne smuggled out a suitcase full of CDs from Australia. Tony Dale, owner of Camera Obscura Records had left this mortal coil and gave them all the CDs they could carry. After two years of intense negotiation, I am pleased to announce we will make these discs available to the elite Green Pajama fans here at GMR.
Strung Behind The Sun is one of my very favorite Pajamas records. Ever. It is full of gorgeous songs. It marks Laura Weller’s debut as a Pajama. When it came out, it made me remember why I love music. That is not small thing. As a bonus I am putting it on sale for 10 bucks. Go!
“With its Art Tatum shuffle, ghostly imagery and Middle East-meets-Middle England vibe, it’s as fleeting and special as a dream about the most magical hippie summer you never had.” One of the “Top 10 neglected American classics” – Tom Cox, The Guardian Unlimited
**** “…gorgeously written and orchestrated…” – Nitsuh Abebe, All Music Guide
“…an album of…breadth and visionary beauty…a perfect amalgam of all the best elements of Green Pajamas’ music, and to a few of us at least the band have no equal. By that measure this album is a masterpiece.” – Ptolemaic Terrascope 24
Beautifully recorded and particularly nice with an early evening rainstorm.” – Popwatch #9
