Seeds- Mr Farmer 7". One of The Seeds most famous songs is “Mr. Farmer”, a groovy tribute to pot growers that has been featured in many movies and TV commercials over the years. It was originally recorded for the band’s 1966 LP ‘A Web of Sound’ and was released twice as a single in 1966, each with different B-sides. One of those releases featured a custom picture sleeve that is now collectible and included on this reissue. Daryl Hooper’s driving keyboard riff is what distinguishes “Mr. Farmer” as does Sky’s insistent singing on this pot themed classic. The gardening theme seemed to speak to the flower power generation and the natural back-to-the-land feel also helped the song retain its stature as a hippie anthem through the generations. Unfortunately, at the time of its release several radio stations objected to the subject matter and seriously hampered the song’s chances at being a hit. The world just wasn’t ready, although the song was issued overseas on several collectible releases. This is an exact reproduction of this Seeds late 1966 classic featuring the abridged version of the epic “Up In Her Room” on the B side.
