4 stars Tudor Lodge - st (1970)

As I was you-tubing the Akarma vinyl reprint label's catalog my eye fell on this folky songwriters album from the obscure Tudor Lodge. When I finally unwrapped this beautiful animated record I was happy to find a great album with nothing but strong songs well performed and well arranged with the help of a variety of musicians (wind, strings, percussion). The recording quality (on my Akarma reprint) is sublime! Warm, soothing and very professional. I don't think that an album like this would be added under the current progarchives restrictions, but it's a great folk record that will be very hard to dislike for everyone interested in early seventies music.

I quickly found that the women in my life also like this record, an effect other recent purchases like T2 and The Human Beast did not have. The special designed fold-out sleeve with fantasy drawings of the three band- members are also an eye-catcher. I myself like the relaxing atmospheres and the tenderness of it all. Some songs do have some harmonically interesting parts and especially the wind-instruments may remind me a bit of King Crimson's 'I talk to the wind' - but let's not stretch it too much.

Four stars it is. Dig it up, uncover it and enjoy!
