An acid masterpiece,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seasons They Change: The Story of Acid and Psychedelic Folk (Paperback)
I finished this book in few days. It is like the encyclopedia of acid folk music from beginning to end. It starts in the early days of the 60's with Shirley Collins, Vashty Banyun and the almighty incredible string band and ends in our times with Espers and Circulus.
It's mostly deals with English bands, although there is quite a lot about American bands and also bands around the world especially in Europe.
It tells the story of this fantastic sub genre in progressive music. I love this genre and I flund few great bands I haven't heard of before together with many great I did heard- Comus, Spirogyra, Trees, Stone Angel, Fresh Maggots, and many many many other. It has interviews with many artists from the genre like Judy Dyble (Trader Horne, Fairport Convention) and many others. It's recommended for Acid folk fans.
