Artwork, selection, liner notes by the same Sewell - John Kertland is the producer.
Third Ear Band has the great untarnished "Stone Circle" ("Alchemy"'s original version) on it.
This is a presentation of the album:
"Caught by the River readers will know artist and illustrator Matt Sewell as a bird enthusiast first and foremost, but he’s also a dedicated and knowledgeable music aficionado and music collector. To channel his second love, the painter of walls around the world and the bird brain behind the bestselling books "Our Garden Birds, Our Songbirds" and "Our Woodland Birds", has joined forces with Caroline True Records (CTR) for ‘A Crushing Glow’; a limited edition 2-LP compilation, on coloured vinyl, released April 28th.
Matt has delved deep into his mixed bag of musical tastes for a 13-track sonic excavation, pulling out songs as diverse as the pastoral post-punk of The Durutti Column, through the bucolic pop of Parsley Sound and the panoramic kosmique of Ashra, reimagined edits from Lobt Noch Irrt, and the Acid of Tin Man via the indo-prog of the Third Ear Band; many songs never before released on vinyl or else long deleted.
Featuring all-original artwork from Matt inside and out, the album is strictly limited to 500 copies. Artwork is contained within a deluxe full-colour gate-fold sleeve, with full colour inner-sleeves – on coloured double vinyl and detailed sleeve-notes carefully crafted by Matt.
Strictly limited to a 500 vinyl-only release with no repress, there will be no CD or digital version of the album".
