Note from Peppermill Records: “The Box is almost complete, and should be ready in a couple of weeks. It will include over forty artists and blow your minds.”
We have a couple songs on this release. This multi-set collection will be made up of radical and over-composed versions of our favorite (and sometimes originally not-so-favorite) tv show themes. It should be out mid-late October. Be sure to keep up with Peppermill news by visiting their website. Look out for Come Sit By My Fire, a compilation of song renditions of Shel Silverstein poems. There will be several Forest songs on this release as well.
