MOTHER EARTH-THE PEOPLE TREE (1993)
An acid jazz group from the U.K. that also incorporates elements of traditional jazz, blues-rock, funk, and mod, Mother Earth made their first appearance on the Acid Jazz label in 1992. "The People Tree" is their second album and despite selling more than 100, 000 copies world-wide it never broke really big in any one place, and the band's progress was halted by the juggernaut that was Britpop. Outside of acid jazz circles, Mother Earth is best known for including Matt Deighton amongst its membership, the guitarist who briefly filled in for Noel Gallagher on an Oasis tour.
