I wish I had seen the notice sooner. I missed out on ordering the pink vinyl version.https://velvetbluemusic.com/shop/morell ... 988-tales/
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER . . . Release date is 5/24
Morella’s Forest is one of the great lost bands, and their lone album Tales – (recorded in 1988) when brothers Ronnie and Jason Martin were just 18 and 16 – has been the ultimate lost album for over 30 years to the handful of people who even know it exists. The two brothers would go on to respectively form the cult bands Joy Electric and Starflyer 59. No track listing or audio has ever leaked out. Its long-overdue release in 2021 feels like nothing short of a miracle or transmission from another dimension. Velvet Blue Music is thrilled to have acquired the rights to this record, and to be putting it out into the world over 30 years later ! ! !
The record comes on classic black or pink vinyl, with a color insert, and a historical document sheet written by Andrew Horton. CD version is a beautiful 6 panel fold out.
And for anyone wondering, I found this in a FB post:
"This is the first record Jason and I recorded back in 1988. The label we were on folded before it was released, so it has been on the shelf since last year, when we were given the original tapes. Velvet Blue Music stepped up, and this will finally see the light of day in May.
To clear up any confusion: yes, there was another Morellas Forest that acquired our name and released some fine records in the 90’s/2000’s, but this has no connection to that band (though they are friends of ours!). This is the original Morellas Forest 1988.
