BMG has officially announced that they have acquired the catalog of multi-Platinum German pop rock music creators Fools Garden.
The agreement includes the sound recordings of all of the band’s albums released between 1991 and 2003 including Fool’s Garden (1991), Once In A Blue Moon (1993), their No.1 breakthrough Dish Of The Day (1995), Go And Ask Peggy For The Principal Thing (1997), For Sale (2000) and 25 Miles To Kissimmee (2003).
“I’m thrilled that Fools Garden and our catalog are now part of the visionary enterprise, BMG” founding member Peter Freudenthaler said in an official statement.
“We are confident that we’re in good hands because we have known the team for years and are sure that we’ll get the best support for our music.”
“Peter and Volker are two of the greatest melodic songwriters of the past 30 years” BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch added.
“Lemon Tree is a phenomenon, but their creativity goes way beyond that” Maximilian Kolb, BMG EVP Repertoire & Marketing Continental Europe said. “Their work stands proudly alongside our other marquee acquisitions including work from Mick Fleetwood, Tina Turner, and Jean-Michel Jarre.”
“Fools Garden are one of the few German bands whose anthems have resonated with fans worldwide and continue to do so to this day.
“Their catalog is of high local and cultural relevance, and we are honored that the band trusts us to continue giving their music the attention and appreciation it deserves.”
