•  The 25 bonus tracks here (all culled from previous releases) encompass more elaborate demos, live cuts and one–offs such as a cover of Nilsson’s “Think About Your Troubles” for all–star tribute album For the Love of Harry or the kooky Super Mario Bros. tribute “Ignorance is Bliss” from the 1991 Nintendo White Knuckle Scorin’ compilation. Of the material otherwise unrecorded by Jellyfish, highlights include “Family Tree” with its Raspberries riff, the attractive, McCartney–esque “Watchin’ the Rain” (with a synth line just crying to be played on a trumpet or flugelhorn), and the straightforward pop of “I Need Love,” “I Don’t Believe You” and “Long Time Ago.” The latter track could practically pass as the work of the famed Wrecking Crew. Ironically, some of these tracks might have fared well as singles, as they’re a bit more lyrically direct and immediately accessible than some of the final tracks on Spilt Milk.
•  Though another studio album never materialized, the Jellyfish legend grew over the years. The comprehensive rarities box set Fan Club was released independently in 2002, and a “best–of” compilation was released in 2006. The next year, the U.K. band McFly revived “Baby’s Coming Back” and it soared up the charts in England. Omnivore has long championed the band through releases like Live at Bogart’s, Stack–a–Tracks, Radio Jellyfish, and a reissue of subsequent Falkner/Manning project TV Eyes, all of which have set the stage for these deluxe reissues.
•  Produced by Omnivore’s Cheryl Pawelski and Lee Lodyga, these editions are undoubtedly the definitive statements on these two beloved cult albums. Attractive digipaks and beautifully designed booklets compliments of Greg Allen make these essential, as does the remastering by Gavin Lurssen and Reuben Cohen. In short, these albums have never sounded better. Ken Sharp’s essays and the track–by–track annotations from the band members are also indispensable. (Those track–by–track notes for the original album sequences are so entertaining that one wishes Manning, Sturmer and Falkner had done the same for the bonus tracks!)
•  One famous Jellyfish song goes, “All I want is everything!” If everything is impossible, these two editions come damn near close.  In a perfect world, these reissues would finally take Jellyfish to No. 1, just like that ghost… :: http://theseconddisc.com/2015/01/20/review-jellyfish-bellybutton-and-spilt-milk-deluxe-editions/
By Chris D.; Score: *****
•  Having enjoyed "Bellybutton" so much, this release was eagerly anticipated, and did not disappoint in the least. Sort of a 90's update of "Sergeant Pepper," the band covers a lot of musical ground in a dream concept. Beginning with the gentle, Queen–like a–capella "Hush" to the overblown, hallucinogenic carnival sounds of "Brighter Day," from the feedback roar of "All Is Forgiven" flowing into the peaceful acoustic "Russian Hill," I never fail to be impressed by the craft of the whole effort. The instrumentation runs a bizarre gamut of guitars, harpsichord, organs, banjo, brass...the vocal harmonies echoing Queen (of course), the Beach Boys, the Beatles and the Association. Hard songs, mellow songs, even a polka thrown in for good measure. This is one of those disks that I can listen to for days on end without tiring. •  Irresistably cheerful and upbeat and always amazing. Perhaps best of all, the disc ends where it begins, so I can go right back to track 1 for another listen. All of the songs are standouts. The music world should be mourning the breakup of Jellyfish, one of the truly great bands to emerge from the decade. I was lucky enough to see them twice on the "Spilt Milk" tour, and I was shocked at how much they were able to duplicate the incredible production on the album in a live setting. With brilliant songwriting, production and musicianship, "Spilt Milk" most definitely gets my 5 stars. •♦•  It is truly a pop classic.
