Product Description

Product Description

This long-forgotten recording from 45 years ago finally allows a wider audience to capture the experience of hearing the Young Tradition at the majestic height of their powers. The live reputation of the mighty Young Tradition lives long in the memories of all who heard them during their brief career. Live recordings were thought not to exist until, 45 years later, an American fan remembered the reel-to-reel recording he'd made at Oberlin College on 17th November 1968. Carefully restored, these tapes are now released by Fledg'ling Records on CD and DL. The Young Tradition formed on 18 April 1965 by Peter Bellamy, Royston Wood and Heather Wood - with a repertoire from the British folk tradition, style from Carnaby Street and lashings of attitude they soon firmly established themselves on the folk scene. Recording for Transatlantic records and international tours soon followed. Record companies will always make extravagant claims for their releases, but Oberlin 1968 really is a rare and truly wonderful historical release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Young Tradition re-awoken 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Excellent collection from a truly wonderful and sadly missed singing group. Saw them live several times and this collection is a vivid reminder of their skills and the inspiration that sprang from them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant music 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
It might be 35 years old but the fantastic folk tracks of the incomparable Young Tradition lead by the amazing Peter Bellamy will enthrall and excite all true folk fans. Childs Ballads, songs of rebellion, even the odd Kipling track, it is all here and live..
