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. Includes an insert with liner-notes by Richard Allen and rare promo photos. "Very delicate and refined interpretations of traditional themes, with notable similarities to Spriguns Of Tolgus and (to a lesser extent) Tickawinda. 'Icy Acres' is especially impressive, with a haunting, melancholy and crystalline atmosphere highlighted by Barbara Atkinson's superb vocals." --Richard Falk (Galactic Ramble)
