Product Description

CD Description

A genre-defying masterpiece of British folk-rock, originally released by Harvest records in 1978, RISE UP LIKE THE SUN is widely regarded as one of the finest and most ambitious products of British folk-rock. The finest edition of Ashley Hutchings’ long-running Albion Band, with John Tams, Simon Nicol, Phil Pickett, Graeme Taylor, Ric Sanders, Dave Mattacks, Pete Bullock and Michael Gregory, recorded this remarkable record at London’s Sound Techniques studio. Medieval woodwinds meet jazz influenced fiddle, screaming electric guitars and a mighty two-drummer rhythm section, produced by Joe Boyd and John Tams. This remastered edition of the album includes four bonus tracks, among them "Rainbow Over The Hil",’ a rare Richard Thompson song with lead vocals from Linda Thompson. Guest musicians featured on the album include Kate McGarrigle, Julie Covington, Richard and Linda Thompson, Martin Carthy, Andy Fairweather-Low and Pat Donaldson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rise up long lost classic revisited 23 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
From masterminding such folk classsics as Fairport Conventions Liege and Lief, Steeleye Spans Please to see the King as well as the seminal Morris On album and Shirley Collins No Roses, you'd have thought that Ashley Hutchings,one of the most important performers in the history of electric folk,would have rested on his laurels. But no, after a sabbatical in the mid seventies,he returned with a potent line up including ex fairporters Simon Nicol and Dave Mattacks,songwriter John tams, fiddle legend ric Sanders, Graham taylor on guitar and meidieval instrument specialist Phil Pickett amongst others, with guests like Richard and Linda Thompson, Martin carthy and Kate and Anna Maggarigle.
From John Tams opening call to arms 'Ragged Heroes' via the Richard Thompson classics 'Time to ring some changes' and 'Rainbow over the Hill' through adaptations of traditional material like the wonderful slow builder Poor Old Horse and the epic 10 min plus Gresford Mining Disaster, this band pull no punches and take no prisoners recording what was probably the last great folk rock album of the 70's, working tight but loose with the additional drumming of Michael gregory and the extra guitar of Graeme Taylor, this line up provided power and subtlety in equal measure, with a classic line up that couldn't be bettered. In fact this was the only studio album recorded by this line up,with the band splitting with Tams,Gregory and Taylor forming the Home Service, Nicol, Mattacks and Sanders reforming fairport Convention and Ashley Hutchings forming the first of a long line of albion bands.None however match the power of this line up, which created a classic album that should be spoken of in the same breath as Liege and Lief and Morris On.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Crossover Album 25 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This version of the Albion Band had been together for some time playing at the National Theatre in various productions. I remember when it was first released that a reviewer referred to it as "the perfect crossover album". That is, crossover between folk and rock. As well as the basic band various guests came in to add colour - people of real credibility like Martin Carthy and the McGarrigle Sisters. The result is unmistakeably English folk music, but is also raw and majestic, using the full force of electricity. "Gresford Disaster", for example, takes the hymn tune from "How Sweet The Name Of Jesus Sounds" and amplifies and extends it into something new. Try also "The Home Service" records - most of this band transmogrified into that group. Magnificent!

For too long this superb record has been confined to the 'great but lost classic' files. The good news is it is once more freely available having just (late 2003) been re-released on Fledg'ling Records, P.O.Box 547, London SE26 4BD. Replete with four outtakes, fulsome liner notes by David Suff & John Tobler with additional personal reminisces courtesy of John Tams it's a landmark album every true folk-rocker should own. A heady mix of Traditional airs and original songs the album swings with great melodies, pin-sharp ensemble playing and rousing harmony singing. No wonder really when one realises that Albion stalwarts appearing on the record include founder member Ashley Hutchings on bass, his ex-Fairport cohorts Simon Nicol & Dave Mattacks, keyboard king Pete Bullock, fiddle ace Ric Sanders, wind instrumental virtuoso Phil Pickett, percussion man Michael Gregory and guitarists Graeme Taylor and Michael Gregory all ably supported by a veritable who's who of Seventies Folk-Rock: Richard Thompson, Kate McGarrigle, Linda Thompson, Martin Carthy, Julie Covington and ex-Amen Corner lead singer Andy Fairweather-Low. Most important of all and heading up this mighty crew was the one and only John Tams - at the time (1978) a relative newcomer. (As Ashley Hutchings graciously concedes in the liner notes - " 'Rise Up Like The Sun' has far more of John Tams's stamp on it than it has of mine, and he deserves far more credit for that album than I do.") Together with legendary record producer Joe Boyd, Tams was somehow able to keep the stellar cast of players firmly on task - staying within the moment of each song they fashioned a sublimely cohesive whole that has well stood the test of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer genius! 17 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
The best "folk-rock" album since 'Leige & Leaf' - great songs, especially 'Time To Ring Some Changes' and 'The Gresford Disaster', brilliant playing and John Tams' voice in excellent form.

I fell in love with this album as a teenager, and I haven't found another folk rock album that lives up to the uniqueness and diversity. I simply love every track. Enjoy.

Back to the '70s and a sound which was new but dated even then! No significant difference between this re-mastered disc and the original.

I wouldn`t describe it as groundbreaking, unless an overindulgence in the use of synthesiser on a folk-rock album can be perceived as groundbreaking. Read more
