CD Reviews

A total essential acid-folk masterpiece!!!
Hawke and Dove | Scottsdale, Arizona United States | 11/21/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Acid folk does not get any better than this. From the epic title track loaded with all of it's beauty and poetry to other beautiful gems like "Brother John". Delicate emotional vocals/lyrics from the Scotish duo of Angie Rew and David McNiven. Not to mention brilliant/beautiful fingerpicking guitars by both of them. Amaryllis and other tracks on this album take me away to a better time and a better place in my childhood. The "dated" organs are very good on this. Makes you realize this is the real deal and just how wonderful 1970/1971 was.

An essential purchase and I don't use the term masterpiece lightly here!!!

Buy it without reservation!!!

Also, their other 2 albums (first one from 1969 and the "Strange tale of captain Shannon and the Hunchback from Gigha") are essential purchases as well.

Easily one of the best groups in the late 60's/early 70's acid-folk era!!!"
