"The Peopletree Sessions" was originally issued on Turin's People Tree Recordings label, from which it derives its name. Shortly after its original issuance, Jovovich and Turin publicly disagreed about the releases' legitimacy. Jovovich, who was filming The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc at the time, attempted to quell the spread of the release over the Internet while Turin argued for its artistic merit. Legal action was never taken and Cherry Red Records has reissued the remastered CD version of the sessions. There are two versions released of the album. The first, being the standard version, with a black cover art, which includes sixteen tracks and one untitled hidden track. The second version, labeled as the UK Edition, with a complete different orange cover art, features the same track list, except the addition of the tracks "Hi, it's Milla", "Loose Weight" and "Queen Of The Parade" and exclude the remix of "House Of Spiders". In 2000, The Peopletree Sessions was chosen as the 'Pop CD of the Week' and given 3/5 stars by The Guardian, which called it "so barking, it's great".[3] The album also received a positive review from All Music Guide.[1]
