The Troubadors - Ned o' the Hill (1975 UK Psych Folk issued on Silver Hill)

This is the only album recorded by The Troubadors, a Birmingham based folk ballad and harmony group. Recorded in Harlesden, London in early December 1974, this album represented a departure from the music they built their reputation on, learning 8 new songs out of the 10 tracks on the album.
The band members included lead singer, Pat Mulligan, Johnny Foley (d. 2007), Jimmy O'Donnell, Gerry McElroy and Dave Trueman. They played mainly in the Midlands as well as in Liverpool, Leeds, Newport and Cardiff, as well as Oxford etc.
This album is a pure, clean and tightly produced combination of popular and more rarely recorded songs. It was released in October 1975 and was well received. In 1975, Terry Wogan chose this album as his record of the week on his highly regarded and popular Radio 2 Breakfast show.
No higher recommendation is needed to commend this fine album.
Do yourself a favour and grab yourself a copy !
