"Gary Farr's long-lost classic folk rock album, now 24-bit remastered from the original master tapes with bonus track. Strange Fruit is a great undiscovered work of the acoustic rock/classic rock genres, cited by some as a minor masterpiece. In the late '60s, Gary Farr made the transition from leader of R&B outfit The T-Bones to a noted singer-songwriter. Recording an album for Marmalade Records, Farr then signed to CBS Records in 1970, recording this sole album for the label. Sessions featured contributions from Richard Thompson on lead guitar and leading lights of the underground Mighty Baby. Unavailable on CD for many years, Strange Fruit is a record made by an often-overlooked singer-songwriter made available once more by Esoteric Recordings and is certain to appeal to all who adore acoustic music both melancholic and uplifting. The reissue also features the first-ever CD appearance of the single edit of 'Revolution of the Season.'"
