One of the rarest albums from the 70s British folk underground scene, originally released on the legendary Midas label. Haunting medieval atmosphere á la Wicker Man, serene male-female vocals and beautiful violin playing which brings to mind Barry Dransfield’s first album for Polydor.

First ever reissue featuring the original artwork. Insert with liner notes by Richard Allen and rare promo photo.

“Very delicate and refined interpretations of traditional themes, with notable similarities to Spriguns Of Tolgus and (to a lesser extent) Tickawinda. “Icy Acress” is especially impressive, with a haunting, melancholy and crystalline atmosphere highlighted by Barbara Atkinson’s superb vocals” – Richard Falk (Galactic Ramble)
