Fruits de Mer gets back to its roots as a '60s/'70s covers label as The Monkees' classic 'Pleasant Valley Sunday' (written by Goffin/King) is coupled with 'Let's Get Together' (written by Chet Powers aka Dino Valenti, arguably the quintessential 1960s love-and-peace anthem) on a 7" single lovingly put together by Astralasia's Swordfish, with the help of a number of Fruits de Mer Records' friends, including Anton Barbeau, Crystal Jacqueline, Icarus Peel, John Chinn, Paul Chousner, Holly Bowler and more, recording together under the delightful collective name of The Fishheads. For added authenticity, the single is cut in mono, the sleeve is one of those glossy flipback jobs (the glue tabs are on top of the rear face of the sleeve as opposed to being inside, like 7" EPs used to be). The single comes with a bonus CD, including stereo versions, an alternative mix of 'Pleasant Valley Sunday' and a modest little 40 minute mix by Swordfish that occasionally sounds a bit like the tracks that it's based on.
