The poor sound quality on this release actually has to do with the fact that the vinyl has had a layer of gold paint applied to both sides of it, as opposed to being a traditional piece of translucent colored gold vinyl (which normally looks dark yellow). Still, it's well worth seeking out for the sheer artwork factor alone.

Although this release is hard to find, it certainly crops up on ebay quite often. The poor sound quality on this release is due to the gold paint that has been applied to the vinyl, however it is only really noticeable in the quiet parts of the record.

ROLLED OATS is one of the more interesting limited 7" singles that Lemon Jelly has released on their own. Since these singles are full of uncleared samples there is no way that they could put these out without paying a hefty licensing fee. The name Lemon Jelly does not appear on any of these singles so you have to "be in the know" to understand who this is.
First off, the single comes in a small burlap (hessian)sack with the words ROLLED OATS silk screened on the front. No label affiliation, no credits, no nothing! When you slide the record out it is a shocking bright gold color. ROLLED is printed on one side, OATS on the other. ROLLED samples "Feel like making love" by Bad Company and is based on lemon Jelly's own track "The Curse of Ka'zar".OATS uses elements of Lemon Jelly's "Closer" with a sample of George Michael's "Heal the pain."
The sound quality is a bit flat and not the best on a 7" record so don't expect 12" or CD quality here. The quality on the Soft 7" single is much better so maybe this was a bad pressing? Both of these tracks are catchy and familiar and will make a great addition to any Lemon Jelly fans collection. Good luck finding a copy as there were only 1000 copies made and they are EXTREMELY hard to find. Who knows, maybe they will clear the samples one day and give it an official release on a 12" with improved sound quality!
