4.0 out of 5 stars A few things you should know about 'Gather in the Mushrooms', 19 July 2010
This review is from: Gather In The Mushrooms: The British Acid Folk Underground 1968-1974 (Audio CD)
Not really 'folk' in the true sense of the word,
This album is still beautiful and really should be heard.

'Folk-influenced', perhaps, is a better description,
Like the neo-folk that blossomed in 1980s Britain

This 1960s 'acid folk' derives its inspiration
From trad folk, without becoming slavish imitation.

Some real gems here, like Trader Horne's 'Morning Way',
Which shimmers like the sun at the threshold of day.

And Magnet's erotic setting of a Robert Burns poem
From the soundtrack of 'The Wicker Man' should be very widely known.

And then there's Forest's 'Graveyard', an amazing little piece,
Or 'The Herald' by Comus, from their debut masterpiece.

The only misplaced song is Buffalo's 'Writing on the Wall'
- a blues-based piece which I don't like at all.

Apart from that, I recommend this album with full heart.
It will take your soul away to a realm of timeless art.
