Silver Apples - The Garden

   (0 reviews)

The Garden was the once legendary, 'lost', third album that luckily turned up in 1998 during the reunion of Simeon and Danny Taylor, who at the time hadn't seen each other for 27 years! The story appears on the sleeve artwork. Mastered from previously unreleased 1968/1969 sessions.

After hearing an old song of Silver Apples on the radio, Dan Taylor called the station and got in touch with his old partner again. When they met again they discovered a collection of tapes among the Silver Apples memorabilia. Seven complete songs recorded in 1969, plus seven instrumentals of Dan playing drums in 1968. Simeon took these instrumentals and added "noodles" in 1998, thus composing new tracks after 30 years.

First released on the now defunct, Whirlybird, label in '98 (CD only) then on now defunct Canadian label, Bully Records, in 2006.

ChickenCoop Recordings is Silver Apples own imprint, the same name given to the backyard studio in Alabama by Simeon Coxe, founder and surviving member of Silver Apples.
