Limited edition white vinyl
Includes download code
It’s now over fifty years since Trees’ formation, a band who helped define ‘Acid Folk’, creating a subcategory in the lexicon of record dealers and music critics alike.
“When we are talking about psych folk or acid folk, we are really talking about music like this by Trees” Stuart Maconie, BBC6 Music.
Trees first album, ‘The Garden of Jane Delawney’ (1970) snuggles nicely into contemporary nu-folkies’ idea of the genre, and shares some of the pastoral-whimsy that characterised The Incredible String Band or Donovan, offset by some stunning interpretations of traditional material and Bias’ own songs.
The record includes readings of ‘Lady Margaret’, ‘Glasgerion’, the old standard ‘She Moved Thro’ The Fair’, and the extended fade of the group’s own ‘Road’, presage the explosive instrumental duelling that would come to characterise the follow up album, ‘On The Shore’.
“The music’s arcane power remains intact” Mojo.
“A fantastic band” Record Collector.
“It’s these two original albums that stand as pinnacles of form” The Wire.
