Liner Notes

From the Green Monkey website: This follow-up to 1987's long out-of-print "Coffee In Nepal" album, done in a more sophisticated fashion as one might expect twenty-five years later, rings true to their first collaboration and illustrates the essential nature of the Kelly’s shared artistic life. Beautiful.

Terrascope Interview with Jeff and Susanne
The Ptolemaic Terrascope
Green Monkey seem to be marketing the new album as a Coffee In Nepal sequel, but I didn’t really get that vibe. It doesn’t seem to be a concept album and doesn’t really reconnect with any of the themes or songs on that album. Do you consider this “Coffee II” and if so, what is the connection? [Read More...]
