Synopsis

Album Description
Between the release of the Albion Band's albums 1990 and 1993's Acousticity, there was no new studio offering. There was the odd compilation but the lack of a full-blooded CD from the two line-ups in this period left the band's followers frustrated and perhaps a little peeved. But now, here are tracks from the gutsy and exciting 1990/1 team and the subtle and intricate 1992 four piece wedded together. They will delight the completists, but more than that; they will reveal to anyone with open ears what buried treasures exist in the much-neglected world of English Folk Rock. 13 tracks. Talking Elephant. 2009.

"The Albion Band is an institution - more a laboratory than an actual "band" in the traditional sense. Constantly shuffling new blood into ever-changing line-ups, Ashley Hutchings' experiments are usually most rewarding when they produce material with a timeless quality. The music "captured" here does not meet this criteria. Most of the original material seems very dated with a late 80's / early 90s studio slickness prevalent when these line-ups recorded them. There have been some very sucessful Albion line-ups before and since this period. Look elsewhere."
