There are many CDs nowadays claiming to tbe the legends of folk rock or whatever and nearly all need avoiding as they include stuff from the 80s when the name "folk rock" was never used and it just misleads the new collector who may want to explore the genre
Here you get those who qualify on many counts from the earliest (Shirley Collins) to the 60s (Lindisfarne) to the 70s (Steeleye Span).

Too many of the tracks consist of recent live versions and are both heavy handed and lacking in the charm of the originals.
The photos are are good but any other information is scant.The selections in respect of Steeleye Span and The Incredible String Band are unlikely to encourage you to listen to more of their songs/albums

Wonderful CD at an incredible price. Some of the greatest folk tracks here - fantastic introduction to English modern folk rock.

This is a great compilation of some great artists. My only gripe - and the reason for not awarding 5 stars - is that the line-up of Renaissance is not the line up we all know from the hit single "Northern Lights" - and indeed the version of this song on this CD is frankly awful. So, if you're getting it for a bit of vintage Renaissance, don't. If the rest of the line-up appeals (as indeed it should!) this is a good buy.
