Album Notes

"The best American singer-songwriter to emerge out of the late '90's -- and the only one worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence with Paul Simon, James Taylor, Cat Stevens and Nick Drake."
| Zeke Piestrup, VH-1's "Fresh Pick of the Week"

"Greetings From the Side" is the critically acclaimed debut album from singer-songwriter Gary Jules, whose highly successful 2002 independent release "Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets" has been a Top 10 Seller at CDBaby for more than a year, and continues to win the praise of audiences and critics around the country and the world.

In the last year Jules' tireless tour schedule has found him sharing the stage with Jack Johnson, Mason Jennings, Jewel, Jason Mraz, Sheryl Crow, and Todd Rundgren. November 2003 will see releases of 'Snakeoil' in Europe and Australia with comprehensive tours to follow.

If you have seen Gary Jules and the Group Rules in person then the songs from "Greetings from the Side" will be familiar to you. Longtime crowd favorites "Barstool", "Bluefish", "Ghosts", Nothing", "Push", and the title track "Greetings from the Side" are all from this hard-to-find debut.

We at buy these factory-sealed, original-pressing, out-of-print copies of 'Greetings' when and where we can find them -- they are in mint condition, but they are always in extremely limited supply.

An All Music Guide review of 'Greetings' named Jules "one of the most gifted songwriting talents to surface during the decade", and called the album "a promising, powerful collection of songs". It was produced by Snakeoil co-producer and Donnie Darko score composer Michael Andrews, and mixed by industry heavy Tchad Blake (Sheryl Crow et al), and boasts performances from Karl Denson (Karl Denson's Tiny Universe. Greyboy Allstars), Robert Walter (Robert Walter's 20th Congress, Greyboy Allstars), and master player/producer Michael Andrews (Greyboy Allstars, Elgin Park).

'Greetings' arrived to the delight of critics and fellow musicians in August 1998, but barely saw the light of day, having been released just weeks before A&M and its parent company, Polygram, were sold to MCA/Universal in a now legendary music industry merger. Still, the title track was prominently featured in Timothy Hutton's film "Digging to China" starring Kevin Bacon, Mary Stuart Masterson, and Faye Dunaway.

Shelved before it ever got the chance to receive the attention it deserved, 'Greetings' has been heavily traded, burned, and downloaded for years -- and now it's available in its original form, with the original artwork, photos, and printed lyrics.

Another success
I'm am so glad I found CD or else I would have never known who the hell Gary Jules is. This guy is cool and his voice is very theraputic and just relaxes the hell out of you. Careful if you are driving to him. He is a cool guy with REAL lyrics about life and he gets "it."


Mad world led me to him. Absolutely wonderful.
A rare find. Unique sound in todays environment, like finding home.

Bruce Lomet (CHINASKI)

This is a great debut, with a good variety of sounds; some of my absolute favorite tunes on this album are "Owen Down", "Push", and "Heroes and Heroin". There is something interesting and contagiously listenable about this album.


great CD; but i prefer the other two from this great artist
Very mellow cd, with the whole cd just flowing very well together. Highly recommended!


Can't stop playing it
Such a pleasure to listen to , genuinely universal in it's appeal, great to play anytime ! Love it !


So chill to listen to after work or just when you're upset
The CD flows together well and is a great listen when you've had a long day or just want something to relax to whenever the occasion calls. I like to call it my take-a-deep-breath-CD. The lyrics are incredibly soulful too!


greetings from the side
the whole album is so mellow, i love it. i totally groove to it when im in my car.

Rich Spencer

Deceptively sweet, barbed edge alt-country.
Musically, the beauty of this album flows straight through, to a casual listener, Jules' voice is lulling and impeccable. Then you have lyrics, telling stories in turn poetic and full of awe, humourous, passionate/violent, poisonous, stream-of-consciousness; but consistently Americana.


I bought this album, along with Trading Snakeoil For Wolftickets on the strength of the track Mad World. I was not disappointed. I can't decide which album I like best, they are both brilliant! "You know love is for sissies, it's whiskey that makes you a man" - classic line!! And Invisible is a wonderful track. All in all, a fabulous experience!

Colin Briscoe

Weakest of his efforts but still very listenable
As a rabid fan of Gary Jule's other work I was disappointed by this album. The disk has some outstanding work - Heroes and Heroin being the best, in my opinion - but the instrumentation is less bold and presentation more predictably safe than his newer discs. It's a must have for any fan but will not rise to the top of my play list. I'd love to hear him re-approach this album.
