Trader Horne biography
One of those acid folk group around the turn of the 60's that is better known for having vocalist Judy Dyble (ex-Fairport and Giles, Giles & Fripp) and former Jackie Mc Auley (ex-Them and Belfast Gyspies) in their ranks. Their sole album Morning Way, released on the collectible Dawn label, contains a sometimes-progressive folk, sometimes acid folk, featuring mainly acoustic guitars and keyboards (among which a harpsichord) but also the odd flute (played by another ex-Them member Ray Elliot) and typical crystal-clear female vocals. As Dyvble left to found a family, she was replaced by another female folk legend Saffron Summerfield, Trader Horne folded rather quickly after the album's release. Most of the songwriting was McAuley's but Dyble dabbled with Steamhammer's Quintenton for the title track. Besides the album, Trader Horne also released two singles (one before and another after the album's release) which are included on the Cd reissue of the album.

3 stars I hunted down this album as a part of my personal conquest for hippie folk rock pastoral sequences, and I was particularly motivated to hear this after earlier delighted experiences of Judy Dyble's beautiful vocal tones, heard from the first Fairport Convention record and earlier version of King Crimson's "I Talk to The wind" song. I admit I was slightly disappointed with my expectations, as though there are lovely tracks on the album, it doesn't work very well as a complete LP entity in my opinion.

The album focuses mostly to medieval mood creation with rawer approach, the feminine elements more counterbalancing the masculine middle-age themes, and not being on the spotlight of the arena. Jackie McAuley leads the vocals of many songs, and the rustic acoustic flavors are supported with light chamber orchestra instrumentation. Psychedelic musical solutions appear as vocal effect treatments and abstract sonic collages binding the songs - these in my opinion dispensable sonic constructions reminding the post-production solutions of "From Genesis to Revelation" record. There are also some visitations to different musical styles, like Judy's sung old school "Down and Out Blues", American folk rock beat of "Sheena" and light bossa nova chill-outs of "Better than Today".

Some of my own favorite songs of the album were "Three Rings for The Eleven Kings"; a short instrumental airy fairy vision from the glades, and the following "Growing Man" being a great composition and having nice short baroque string theme. "In My Loneliness" also shimmers with pretty sphere of purity and romantic feminine symphonic folk touch reminding the sound of The Gentle Soul. The title song "Morning Way" has also very attractive melodic progressions and Jackie's and Judy's vocal dialogue, uniting to harmonic duo at the end. From the CD bonus tracks covering the original singles, "Here Comes The Rain" is also a charming Beatlesque folk pop rock gem. Though I found this as a quite sympathetic vintage progressive folk recording, it still did not fit completely to my own tastes, and appeared to have slightly unbalanced quality. However warmhearted kind songs from the past days are most usually positive things in a cold, calculated world of violence.

Review by progshachar

5 stars Another great prog folk album that was hiding and now that we found it, we can admire it day after day. Trader Horne is a Duo : Judy Dyble, who was singing in "Fairport convention", and Jackie McAuley,played the organ for the "theme". Their first and only album - "Morning way" was released in 1970. It had 13 songs + 2 good bonus tracks. From the first song toward the end you are in a majestic journey of lovely, warm, enjoyable folk music. The first song "Jenny May" is a great song, then there is the beautiful "Morning way" - the title track and many other. It's a bit like children music, therefore the album cover looks like it's taken from that genre. I think that anybody who liked "Mellow candle" - "Swaddling songs", "Agincourt" - "Flyaway" and "spirogyra" music , will love this album. Both singers sing in this album and the combination of their voices is unique. It's one of the best folk rock music that I have ever heard and I heard a few. Try it and you won't be disappointed.

Review by Concentration Moon

4 stars This album is a delightful album that will please any fans of Fairport Convention, Trees, and other prog folk albums from the late 60's and early 70's. Like many prog folk albums of the time, Morning Way is filled with male and female vocals, soft strings and percussion, and a variety of soothing wind instruments.

"Children of Oare", the second track of the album, stood out to me. The male and female vocals blend very nicely in particular in this song. The short wind solos are played well. The background sound of waves also has a nice touch near the end of the track. The ending is also a very nice xylophone-type solo.

The entire album flows right along, each track complementing the previous one. Each song sounds as though it is from a very long time ago, as many in the genre sound. If you wish to listen to less common mellow folk, Morning Way by Trader Horne is an excellent suggestion.

4 stars Judy Dyble sung for Fairport Convention, so that the album here sounds a bit like Fairport Convention, except that it is rather folk than blues or hard rock; she is seconded by male singer Jackie McAuley. The overall music is not extremely progressive, although it is enough to classify it as prog folk. There are some good mini-symphonic string arrangements. The drums and the bass are very timid, often being completely absent. The style is very acoustic & folkier. There are some percussions of the xylophone family, mostly in the beginning of the album. The keyboards remain rare and discreet: the piano seems the most played one, and a short passage seems to act as a repetitive interlude. The album is neither really psychedelic nor spacy. Some tracks are sad and melancholic, but the album is not globally depressing. There are a couples of more catchy tracks. There are no fillers in my opinion.

3 stars This sole record is of interest mostly to progheads for two reasons: the first being that the record presents a rather pleasant folk rock with enough strange twist and some odd instrumentations that it can be classified as progressive (all things being relative, here). The second reason is that if you are a late 60's buff, you know that Judy Dyble was the first Fairport Convention singer and she tried out for Giles, Giles And Fripp and almost made the cut for King Crimson's first line-up - this is documented in GG&F's Brondesburry Tapes album. For years, I associated this album closely with another folk-rock album Tudor Lodge.

However, this group was mostly the project of Jacquie McAuley - of THEM fame (Van Morrison's group who made two excellent psych albums after Van left them) and the main songwriter here - and Judy handles only part of the vocals. The music is rather naïve (but it is part of the charm of such a record) folk rock that even back in 1970 was largely outdated except to a few unconditional folk purists that have kept the value of that vinyl high enough to guarantee a few counterfeits and now a Cd release on "iffy" label Akarma (the Italian copyright laws not being very strict to say the least) but of late, this label seem to have commercialised widely some early 70's rare UK records on a very luxurious vinyl versions and vinyl-replicas Cds of many groups. So I suppose some agreement has been reached and Author's Rights and royalties are respected. One of the main gripe I have with Akarma is that those mini-Lp Cds are not quite up to par with their Japanese competition, but the superb, yet-weird original artwork is fully respected here - however the quality of the foldouts covers is not perfect.

A very pastoral mood, dominated by an acoustic guitars and some flute (not always well played), and the tracks glides smoothly but rather unremarkably until the sixth one: right from the first notes, the Mixed-Up Kind (the longest of the album clocking in at 6.5 minutes) stands out a bit with a fuller ensemble of instruments including drums and harpsichord. On the second side, one of the highlights is The Mutant, but one of the rare Dyble-written track (the title track) also holds much interest. The two bonus tracks come from a separate single and the two non-album track fit quite nicely the rest of the album.

Certainly one of the lost interesting album in the plethora of late 60's-early 70's period but of limited interest to progheads.
