The Yellow is the name of the second EP released by electronica duo Lemon Jelly, according to the insert of Lemonjelly.ky, on September 6, 1999. It was limited to 1,000 10" copies, the first 240 of which featured hand screen-printed sleeves. The tracks from the EP were later incorporated for more accessible listening into the critically acclaimed Lemonjelly.ky album. When the inner sleeve was pulled out, the Lemon Jelly logo appears briefly through a series of die-cut holes in the outer sleeve creating a piece of real world animation.[1]

History[edit]

From 1998 to 2000, Franglen and Deakin released three limited-circulation EPs (The Bath (1998), The Yellow (1999), and The Midnight (2000)), on their own label Impotent Fury.[2] The EPs were a critical success,[3] and led to the duo being signed to XL Recordings.[2]
