//Review//

由於Feverfew並未正式宣布解散,團員們後來組成的The Rileys或Blueboy,其實就像一個家族,不時會互相幫忙演奏與合唱等,只不過Feverfew與The Rileys的作品非常難尋,一堆7吋/flexi/卡帶/合輯的單曲到處散落,使得在Sarah Records穩定發片的Blueboy占去最大光環,其優雅、清新與感傷的jangle pop曲風,至今仍被Sarah迷所津津樂道。

一旦愛上Blueboy,難免會對陌生的Feverfew與The Rileys感到好奇。Cloudberry先後為其remastered化,做成像小書冊般的CD盤出輯,內容附上團員們當時創作音樂的背景、演唱會傳單、唱片封圖與樂雜介紹等,剪貼成indiepop fanzine獨有的風格氣味,留下’89-’92間短暫但珍貴的樂團記錄。

The Rileys曲風像是青澀Feverfew與成熟Blueboy間之過渡,尤其男孩女孩們的主合唱與清亮的吉他調子,相似程度確實容易跟Blueboy的音色混淆,只好怪這兩隊的主音與吉他手,沒事跑來跑去為對方作嫁。首次擁有絕版超久的兩首indiepop金曲 “Dreamsway” 與 “You Can’t Be Loved Forever” 最令人興奮,還有樂團唯一迷你專輯《The World And His Wife》與7首未發表曲,全數21曲的The Rileys不僅能填滿Feverfew與Blueboy的唱片收藏,也稍微彌補了對於Blueboy主音Keith Girdler早逝的失落感。

Retrospective album that includes 21 remastered songs by The Rileys including their long out of print mini-album The World and His Wife. This great band came from the ashes of Are You Mr. Riley and Feverfew and during the early nineties released a bunch of singles as well as appearing on many classic indiepop compilations. With their trademark boy/girl vocals, jangly guitars, The Rileys were a favourite band of mine for a long time, since I first ever heard “Dreamsway" many many years ago. Now it’s time for everyone to rediscover them especially as they have reformed for some select shows! The record includes full liner notes by the whole band. 7 unreleased songs. On our classic custom digipack.
