Summer Rain

by The Wellgreen

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    It's great to share the most excellent of news! Our pals over at Sugarbush Records have repressed a limited amount of our 'Summer Rain' LP.

    This was originally released on the brilliant Spanish pop label Pretty Olivia Records. With that first run of the record now sold out, Markus Holler offered to do a repress with a difference. This time, the vinyl itself comes in the colour that's well green!

    If you don't yet own this record, now is the chance! Or, if you're completists like us, you'll have to update your collection with this alternative version.

    "This is an amalgam of the best sounds that artists such as Emitt Rhodes, Blue, Bread, Big Star (yes, again!) and Paul McCartney made in the early to mid 70s." Sugarbush Records

    "The opening title track is a great entry point, and probably the best song Todd Rungren never wrong." Shindig Magazine

    "Sugarbush goes from strength to strength, this could very well be their best release. The Wellgreen have impressed me enormously, I can't wait to hear more and hope to do so soon. Summer Rain is an absolute crackerjack of an album. Pop at it's poppermost best." I Don't Hear a Single blog

    Includes unlimited streaming of Summer Rain via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

  • Limited Edition LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This special Long Player release is a loving collaboration between The Barne Society & Pretty Olivia Records. The Wellgreen album is part-retrospective and part-new release which contains a happy mix of pleasures past and pastures new.

    "The most remarkable thing about it, apart from the quality of the songwriting, the savvy instrumentation the close-to-you harmony vocals is the sheer consistency of the twelve cuts included on Summer Rain." Michael S. Clark - 1320Radio.

    "This is classic, vintage pop at its best, steeped in the homespun, piano-centric tradition of Emitt Rhodes and early Todd Rundgren. And OK let's be honest: the early solo works of Paul McCartney and Wings too. For anyone who wished that Macca had coaxed one more "McCartney", "Ram", or "Wild Life" out before embracing the slicker sounds that the seventies studio had to offer, this one goes out to you." Nathan Ford - The Active Listener

    All songs written by Kidd/Rea except "She's The Greatest" and "Jennifer", written by Daniel McGeever.
