I only ever saw Mr. Fox live on tv-Granada, late at night, around 1970,sharing a half hour spot with the Natural Acoustic Band, they were magnificent. I have had these albums in various formats since then-they are unlike other folk-rock bands in that this is essentially English music and offer a uniquely English, well Yorkshire, vision of the world. This is a world of eccentrics, the spirits of the dead walking the Dales, of people cheating death by dancing,of changlings, the Bluebeard Mr. Fox and of course Gypsies. This vision of Yorkshire is of a dying Dales society, of children leaving the area, of tradition being discarded, there is humour and great sadness. If you know Yorkshire you need this new edition of these two ablums. Bob and Carole Pegg had made one lp for Trailer "He Came From The Mountains" (sadly out of print and never released on cd) after playing the Keele Folk Festival and being part of the late night discussions that led to Steeleye Span being formed out of the desire to present English folk music in a contemporary way. Mr. Fox toured, released these two classic lps and disbanded amidst great acrimony. Bob went on to release two lps with Nick Strutt before releasing Ancient Maps, the last we would hear of him on vinyl for 25 years, when he released The Last Wolf. All of Bob's records are worth hearing but this set is essential. Buy this record, it will live with you for the rest of your life.
