ANDY JONES - "The First Not the Last" (Great 70s US Private Downer Folk LP)


From the Acid Archives review : "... seldom seen private 70's downer folk style ... focus is more on groove and emotional presence ... the mood is intense with energetic acoustic guitar strumming ... uses echo to fine effect ... even a melodic number that brings in mellotron".

A little gem in my opinion !

JEFF BAKER - Loner (1971 German Prog Folk on BASF)


Maybe the most underrated album I know !
Absolute fantastic and intensive Psychedelic, only issued in 1971 on german BASF.
Loner, progressive Folkrock album, partly more rocking, partly more folky, with English vocals, highly recommendable.

Gabriel Gladstar - A Garden Song (1981 Vinyl reissue on Flying Guitar FG 201)


This little folk psych gem has been recorded in 1973 by Gabriel Gladstar : Jim Zeiger (flute, percussion, vocals), Michael Gwinn (guitar, vocals) & Phillip Morgan (guitar, vocals).
Repressed by the original label, this second press also featured a different cover.
The music is mostly soft and delicate, trippy acoustic guitar driven male duet folk, with tons of flute.
Truly a forgotten little masterpiece !!!

REVELRY - Revelry at Cambusnethan Priory (Rare 1977 UK Folk - Deroy pressing - Priory Label)


Has a couple of slightly 'dull' pseudo-medieval singalong songs, but the remaining ten tracks are excellent UK folk rock in a similar vein at times to Finn MacCuill’s Sink Ye Swim Ye, with a lovely mix of acoustic/electric instrumentation.
The group feature four-part male/female vocal harmonies on most tracks, with lead female vocals on a couple of songs, including the beautiful ‘Glencoe’.

This is on the band’s own Priory label (catalogue number is PRST 0001), but the run-out groove reveals it was actually pressed for them by Deroy (with a catalogue number of DER 1393).

BRIAN BYRNE - Sweet Carnloch Bay (1982 reissue of the 1973 Irish Folk masterpiece)


The 1973 Hawk edition was a poor quality pressing.
The track listing on the cover did not match the vinyl.

The 1982 budget reissue on Harp (HPE 652) features a new title 'Sweet Carnloch Bay' and new cover artwork which misspells Brian's name as 'Bryan Byrne' . This is rectified on the label.


Here the track listing on the cover match the vinyl but they removed the track B1 (The Lark in the Morning) on this reissue.
Well it was the weakest track on the Hawk issue.

Tracklist :

Side One
A1 Carnloch Bay
A2 The Town is not Their Own
A3 Next Market Day
A4 Lakes of Coolfin
A5 John Barleycorn
A6 Coulter's Candy

Side Two
B1 The Wind that Shakes the Barley
B2 Magherafelt May Fair
B3 Droop All the Flowers
B4 Handsome Sally
B5 The Parting Glass
