One of the rarest albums from the 70s British folk underground scene, originally released on the legendary Midas label. Haunting medieval atmosphere la Wicker Man, serene male- female vocals and beautiful violin playing which brings to mind Barry Dransfield's first album for Polydor.

"Very delicate and refined interpretations of traditional themes, with notable similarities to Spriguns Of Tolgus and (to a lesser extent) Tickawinda. "Icy Acres" is especially impressive, with a haunting, melancholy and crystalline atmosphere highlighted by Barbara Atkinson's superb vocals" - Richard Falk (Galactic Ramble)

You can buy the LP / CD at: www.guerssen.com

released 17 April 2014
Originally released in 1972. This reissue (c) 2014

GALLERY were Steve Morrison (guitar, mandolin); Barbara Seabourne (vocals, dulcimer); Royce Seabourne (vocals); Mark Uttley (violins)

Topic is now a fortnight old, and seems to have been missed. Beautiful music indeed, but it is tagged as Traditional Folk on RYM (and other places on the web), which I would tend to agree with. Prog Folk is not a sub I understand well at all though, so take this with a pinch of salt, and let's wait for others more knowledgable than myself to comment. Embarrassed

Not missed, just been busy traveling around Asia and haven't had much time for music. Gallery has been approved and I'm going to try and get them added today. I have four bands in my backlog to work on.
