Whoa! Don't let Amazon's editor's slander of this group as a "prog rock" outfit turn you away. Dando Shaft is a wonderful short-lived acoustic folk combo from the tail of the 1960's and beginning of the 1970's.
Dando Shaft consisted of three male songwriters/pickers Martin Jenkins, Dave Cooper and Kev Dempsey. They shared vocal duties with the excellent Polly Bolton on these two albums. Rhythm was provided by double bass and either congos or tablas. Like the best acoustic music, some of their music simply refuses to age.
This release couples their scintillating second album ("Dando Shaft") with their third LP "Lantaloon." While "Lantaloon" suffers from a wealth of very well played dull songs, "Dando Shaft" is a fine album that merits a five star rating. Particular highlights are "Coming Home to Me," Polly Bolton's ethereal overdubbed duet on "River Boat" and, well, just the whole damn album.
Highly recommended to all lovers of acoustic and British Isles music out there.
