More Info:

Originally released in 1994, Mother Earth's The People Tree is a gem of an album that encapsulates a love of soul, funk and folktinged '70s rock. To mark it's 30th Anniversary, this special edition 2LP reissue includes the original album, three previously unreleased tracks, and a further six that have neverbefore been on vinyl. It has been remastered from the original analogue recordings. One of the best-loved albums in Acid Jazz history, it was the product of over a year of sessions, led by label-founder Eddie Piller, and featuring guest appearances from Paul Weller, Dee C Lee, and Brand New Heavies' Simon Bartholomew. Bonus tracks include the previously-unreleased alternative "Apple Green" with a distinctive female backing vocal, an alternative version of "Illusions", and the title track. First-time vinyl cuts include the alternate master of "Jesse", "A Trip Down Brian Lane" and the heavy funk of "Slide Sweet Baby". The album is presented in a beautiful wide-spine layout, with two printed inner sleeves, adorned with in-depth notes form Eddie Piller and unseen photos from the original cover shoot by Gerald Mankiewicz.
