SONG OF THE DAY The Potted Palm – My House Of Grass

Chicago’s Numero group are one of those labels that I dream of working for!  They specialise in creating compilations of previously released (and often obscure) recorded material, reissuing original albums, whilst dedicating all of their time to researching and unearthing rare sounds from a variety of musical genres.

The label was founded in 2003 by Tom Lunt, Rob Savier and Ken Shipley with a vision to “research and preserve obscure recorded material and ephemera by artists and entrepreneurs who found little commercial success upon their material’s initial release”. 

The label’s releases extend into the 100’s, with each album covering an eclectic array of funk, soul, world, r&b and much, much more.  You could literally spend weeks exploring their catalogue of diverse sounds.  The next release for the Numero series is a compilation titled Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Exotic Delights, which features an enticing collection of songs including today’s soothing serenade by The Potted Palm entitled, My House Of Grass.  Unfortunately I cannot offer anymore details other than where to find this track, but I dare say when this compilation is released in May, the liner notes will offer more information.  Until then I hope you enjoy this track as much as I am?!..Listen above.

Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Exotic Delights offers over 50 tracks in a 3xLP/CD collection and is due this May.  Preview the album and pre-order your copy from here.
