4 stars A five piece Psyche / Folk band.This is a great album that i'm so glad I took a chance on. I really like the fact they have two lead guitarists, I really enjoyed listening to them both playing a different, yet complementary melody at the same time, just beautiful ! And another thing that is very appealing to me is that the guitar often sounds like Conny Veit's style and tone from POPOL VUH. There are both female and male vocals, although Celia does most of the singing, and she has a very nice tone to her vocals.

Dual vocals on the opening track "Soldies Three" really works well. Highlights for me are "Polly On The Shore", "Murdoch" and "Fool" all of which have that Viet-like guitar front and center. "Sally Free And Easy" may be the best song. Again the guitar melodies are to die for. I found as I was making notes as I listened to this record, that I kept writing down time after time "amazing guitar melodies", and this is true of "Fool" and "Streets Of Derry" both beautiful songs."While The Iron Is Hot" is another favourite, the instrumental section is the most energetic on the album, great tune ! Lastly is the song "Little Sadie" which has a country feel to it, but it's fun, catchy and they pull it off perfectly. Nice bass too.

A real gem from 1970. Love the guitar.
