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).

SNAKEHIPS - "Snakehips Arnold & the King of Boogie" (1974 UK Private Folk on the Spaceward label)


There's no secret anymore: some of the finest bands and artists from Cambridge have passed through the Spaceward Studios. Snakehips is one of them. And just like Gigymen, the band met at Emmanuel College. It consists of Dave Goldberg (vocals, guitar, little plastic guitar), Mark Harrison (lead guitar, mandolin, vocals), Doug Arnold (vocals, harmonica, guitar) and Gerry Dudgeon (bass guitar on Lost Property).
