2 stars Ithaca is one of the projects that had to do with the Ditching Players, that also saw Agincourt , Tomorrow Comes Someday and Alice Through The Looking Glass albums released but as private pressings and only to small quantities (Less than 500, I gather). As you imagine most collectors will tell you about the marvels of such an album and try to sell the vinyl at high costs. This was the case in the early 90's before Background released all of them, and this series of reissues deflated the quoting prices/values of the vinyls.

As for the music on here , we deal with a relatively poor produced folk rock , not completely uninteresting , but rather anecdotal and certainly not worth the hype made out as there was only the vinyl. The six tracks are about a day in the life of a young man and his thoughts about the world around him.

Unless you are a folk rock fanatic, and you have searched all over the planet and found nothing more to sink your ears into , this might be of an interest. But for progheads, the interest is very relative although the music is rather pleasant and worthy of a spin in your desk. But it is rather inconsequential!
