mother earth You Have Been Watching (CD, £9.50) due 24-11-2017label: Acid Jazz
The final studio album from Mother Earth was the glorious and slightly disjointed ‘You Have Been Watching’. A follow up to their classic ‘People Tree’ album, it was to some extent the sound of a band falling apart. As such it includes a mixture of soul driven 70s influenced rock, spaced out Curtis influenced soul and stoned dub exertions. Mother Earth frontman Matt Deighton would later go on to play with Oasis and Paul Weller’s band.
