Hi there Dave from the UK here I've not received my new single yet either hope its not lost in the post
Well, mine for now as I said it will be an April birthday gift for a friend in Hollywood, CA. A fun place to visit now and then. Freaks.
This is a lovely record. The artwork is masterful, the detail, say, in the fiddle for instance is really something.
To call this, 'amateurish' belies a total lack of understanding of this piece. Whatever, it's perfectly imperfect, distressed - however you want to describe the sloppy, homemade feel it's exactly like Grateful Dead music and a hell of a lot harder to pull off than it looks. The devil is in the details.
I got the email with the mp3 download but haven't gotten the actual 45 yet - has anyone received theirs?
It doesn't really reflect the music either.
Artwork looks even better in person.

Agree with Puff Diesel...artwork is amateurish, and does not relate at all with the time period the original 45 came out of.
I bought this for a friend's birthday, just because of the artwork.
I'm surprised people like the artwork. I think it looks like someone's mailorder envelope. Not bad per se....but nowhere close to professional looking. This has seemed to be the case with a lot of releases going back at least to the first Spring 90 box. Don't get me started on the horrid Daves Picks covers. Such great music but extremely mediocre art, at best These guys can do much better.
Best artwork yet, in my opinion. Awesome!
I had to log in just to say, wow, what gorgeous artwork.
Kudos to the artist.
Love the artwork
