AllMusic Review by

This tribute to the unique late-'60s electronic duo Silver Apples features 11 space rock and indie pop bands of the '90s who obviously have great empathy for where Silver Apples were coming from. This tribute was originally issued on vinyl. Simeon (half of Silver Apples) was surprised when he came across it in a NY record store. When he took it home and gave it a listen, he "was completely bowled over." And with good cause -- with performers including Windy & Carl and Third Eye Foundation, it's a great listen for those who enjoy the original Silver Apples' music. In 1996, this tribute was reissued on CD and, encouraged by the renewed interest and attention, Simeon revived the Silver Apples and returned to the studios.
