about

This month we are very pleased to release Jeff and Susanne Kelly’s By Reckless Moonlight. You know Jeff as Green Pajama #1. If you like to read album credits, you know Susanne as well from the many album covers that have featured her art (the 12 page color book in this album has several of her paintings). They are well acquainted. Married in fact.

In 1987 when we at GMR made little cassette releases, we made GM019, Coffee In Nepal. The PJs and I had taken a long time making the Book of Hours album and Jeff decided to make this cassette with his new bride Susanne on his Tascam 4 track Portastudio while we were working on it. It was pretty simple, primitive and beautiful. Just Jeff and Susanne with minimal instrumentation. It has one of my all time favorite songs by Jeff, “Oh How I Loved You”. The album had legs for a cassette. It got picked up by DiDi records in Greece and released on LP. Twelve years later it got released on CD on the Melancholy Sun box set by Camera Obscura in Australia.

Fast forward. After wrapping up the Pajamas Death By Misadventure in July 2012, Jeff asked me about doing a follow up to Coffee in Nepal. “Of course,” I said. We sat on his porch and bounced around a bunch of ideas about making a two disc re-release of Coffee In  more
