Matt Berry | Gather Up - Red Vinyl
Limited edition gatefold red double vinyl
Following the huge acclaim earlier this year for Matt Berry’s eighth studio album, ‘The Blue Elephant’, Acid Jazz release ‘Gather Up’, a compilation album encompassing the singular musical adventures this extraordinary musician has taken over the past decade, offering a revelatory and fascinating insight into the working process of a genuine musical maverick and sonic explorer.
Over 10 years with Acid Jazz, Berry has released nine incredibly diverse albums (including one live album). From the tangled-folk rock thickets of ‘Witchazel’ and ‘Kill The Wolf’ (which features the song from which this release gets its name), to the out-there explorations of ‘Music For Insomniacs’ or ‘TV Themes’’ retro-kitsch delights, through the soul power in ‘Matt Berry & The Maypoles Live’ or the twilight grooves of ‘The Small Hours’ to the classic pedal-steel songwriting of ‘Phantom Birds’ and the smorgasbord of psychedelic sounds on ‘The Blue Elephant’, Berry’s journey has produced a feast for the ears that twists and turns down more unexpected avenues than most artists could manage over several careers.
‘Gather Up’ pulls together an excellent career spanning collection expertly compiled by Berry, including non-album tracks such as ‘Snuff Box Theme’. No easy achievement considering the sheer breadth, diversity and volume of his exceptional musical output.
