Hiatus presents a reissue of Mountain Ash Band's The Hermit, originally released in 1976. Emanating from the curious urban landscape of the west midlands in the early 1970s, the Mountain Ash Band emerged in the midst of a sustained interest in folk music. Cambridge-born writer Colin Cripps led the band up to the beautiful moors of Ilkley in Yorkshire, providing an idyllic backdrop for their concept album The Hermit in 1975. Cripps's network of friends from the Coventry arts scene would prove vital in bringing the album to fruition, but wouldn't be able to envisage its continuing influence and its hefty price tag decades later. Hiatus present their 1976 classic album here with previously unreleased material, restorative audio remastering, interviews, background liners, and rare archival memorabilia.
