5 stars The traditional oriented "Soldiers Three" opens this extraordinary wonderful psychedelic folk album, and it's vocal arrangements for several voices and medieval like guitar interludes gives a strong first impression. "Murdoch" has a strong tempo driven by acoustic guitar, and an enchanting verse with overdubbed double vocals. "Polly on the shore" is one of the essential tracks here, a long psychedelic voyage with beautiful features. "Adams Toon" is a short medieval like guitar piece introducing "Sally Free & Easy", which creates a fine tension with piano driven opening, and powerful verse from the whole band. "Fool" is also a great song, this being more conventional folk rock with traditional oriented melodies and lyrics. "Geordie" resembles the early Fairport Convention minor ballads from its melody, which is truly beautiful, and the weeping electric guitar accompanies Celia's voice. The rest of the tracks are quite average as compositions, but still fine performances. The re-mastered sound on the CD is very clear, and there's an informative booklet within, so if you like psych oriented folk, I recommend checking this album out. The original vinyl version of this record should be quite hard to find and very expensive, luckily there are some reissues moving around of it too.
