CD Packaging: Mark Fry/The A. Lords – I Lived In Trees

Mark Fry’s “I Lived in Trees” album comes with a packet of Rowan tree seeds. Wooh! That just blew me away. Since their title is “I lived in trees”, then they must’ve thought ‘hey, why not give away seeds?’. Seeds don’t cost a lot but they’d make as hip giveaways. Clever!

I wish more musicians and designers would think of adding simple freebies to their albums.
