Master samplers from the UK at the beginning of the millennium, Lemon Jelly, like a comet, raced over the filament before disbanding, but not before recording two stunning albums – “Lemon Jelly.ky” and “Lost Horizons” which features this song.
It incorporates transmissions from Houston to the Apollo astronauts as one embarks on a space walk and sees the earth rise. ‘Beautiful, just beautiful.’
I associate Lemon Jelly with tongue-in-cheek samples – check out “The Staunton Lick” or “Nice Weather For Ducks.” Happy music! You’ll also find “A Tune For Jack” on this curation…catchy!
This track is also featured on the Music to The Ocean And Beyond Playlist

About the Curator: Richard Parsons
I grew up listening to music from the late 60’s onwards. Pirate pop radio; swapping LP’s with friends; exploring genres; daydreaming over the latest woofer and tweeter.
