Apple And The Three Oranges: “Free And Easy Pt. 1.”

We at Now-Again have just inked a deal with Edward “Apple” Nelson to issue an anthology of Apple And Three Oranges’ 5 45 rpm records, issued on Stage Music, Stanson and Sagittarius. In the future, we’ll give you more details about the reissue (funk expert Dante Carfagna will help write the liner notes and contribute ephemera; L.A. funk collector Cut Chemist has already contributed to the Apple interview; L.A. record dealer and Apple enthusiast Mike Vegh has agreed to contribute rare photos of the band in its prime). In the meantime, feast your ears on Apple’s classic “Free and Easy” and gaze at the original Stage Music 45 as one of our Picks.
