There are four versions of the EP Feel, all have the same image of the band circa 1992, and all have differing coloured images of the band. The ‘Single’ has a black background with the band imaged in yellow, and contains but two tracks “Feel” and a cover of The Beatle’s song “It’s All Too Much.” There is an EP that comes with a black background with the band imaged in blue, and another with the band imaged in pink, both contain the four tracks “Feel,” “Let’s Talk About You,” “It’s All Too Much” (Beatles cover) and “Strange Brew” (Cream cover). There is yet another, entirely different EP with a white background with the band imaged in a light brown colour, containing the tracks “Feel,” “Real Animal,” “Plastic” and “Nothing To Me.” All of these releases are titled as Feel. And if that weren’t enough, back in 1992 when these were put together, they were often mismatched from the jackets, leading folks to not get what they thought was contained within. And if that still weren’t enough, several are available on vinyl and some on compact disc only. NOW, that being said,

Regardless, all of these releases contain great material, and if you’re a fan, you sincerely need the two EP’s that contain the covers of The Beatles and Cream. As with so many bands, House of Love were deeply influenced by The Beatles, and their cover of “It’s All Too Much” (rising from the soundtrack to Yellow Submarine) rides ever so close to the original, though with an obvious House of Love neo-psychedelic presentation, sounding more like a tribute, yet nevertheless, comes across with a hypnotically smoother dream laden sound without the sonic edges enlisted by The Beatles. On the other hand, their cover of Cream’s “Strange Brew” comes across as if they’d written the song, completely making it their own, and once again they smooth out the edges, vocalize with much more rich and engaging harmonies, a more restrained drumming, and all while the guitars are intrinsically intertwined, flowing and flowering together in a manner that Cream could not deliver.

Depending on the EP you get, the other tracks vary, nonetheless, they all hale from the Babe Rainbow period, and while some songs are and aren’t on formal albums, it makes this release, or more aptly, all of the releases titled as Feel, a must for your collection.
