ROB SEZ: 1991 must have been a good year to be Jellyfish. They’d recently signed a record deal, and their debut album Bellybutton was getting rave reviews. Before commercial challenges and intra-band problems set in, the future looked bright for Jellyfish. As for musical chops, the band's original lineup was probably the peak — including the blazingly talented Jason Falkner on guitar & backing vocals. You can hear the musical results in these two shows.

A promo Jellyfish COLORING BOOK? Um, yup.

Roger Manning – keyboard, vocals
Andy Sturmer – lead vocals, drums
Jason Falkner – guitar, vocals
Chris Manning - bass

FM capture (sound quality VG; probably a multi-generation copy of original source tape, but overall sound is quite decent)

In the end, perhaps space was the final frontier for Jellyfish...

    NOTE: When Haper still had these available at Popfair, he noted that some of the final tracks in the collection reflect Andy’s work on cartoon soundtracks.

    EXTRA THANKS to Don at Ash for going the extra mile to get these to me. I’m guessing they originally came from Popfair, who credits contributors to the Andy Sturmer Yahoo Group for supplying and even finishing some of these tracks.


  2. Yes. Those Andy Sturmer Demos & Covers came from the Andy Sturmer Yahoo Group. Some of the demos originally came from the Andy Sturmer Demo CD in 2000.
