3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad..but some strange choices, 28 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain's Visionary Music (Audio CD)
If you have read the book then you'll know what to expect here although some of the track choices are rather odd. Comus I'd call prog more than anything else. The Water Into Wine Band were a Christian band who played the Christian Greenbelt Festival and supported Cliff Richard (very little pagan going on there). The Tudor lodge track is one of the least interesting MOR Radio 2 cuts from their patchy album. Meic Stevens to my ears is more like Dylan than UK Folk. Similarly Nick Drake and Bridget St. John are surely singer songwriters. There are much better Albion Band tracks than the one chosen. It's what's missing that sticks out more than anything else and whilst space must have been a limitation, if Comus is going to make it then Principal Edwards Magic Theatre is a prime contender. How about Tir Na Nog, Nigel Mazlyn Jones, Steve Ashley, Anne Briggs,Magna Carta, Decameron, Fuschia , The Strawbs, The Woods Band, The Dransfields and Storyteller ? I could go on. Not a boring listen but there are certainly much better thought out UK folk rock compilations out there.
