There are not many underground folk albums Shadoks are keen on putting out. Steve Atkinson's Small Boats was one the label loved immediately. Steve was just not easy to find. So, with some help from a student (Steve was a teacher) Shadoks were able to locate him. If you think the early Mick Stevens albums are cool, Tony Caro And John is a killer group, and you love the tradition of British underground folk music, you will really like this album. Very well composed electric and acoustic songs with beautiful vocals, guitar, violin, recorder, cello, bass, chimes, and clarinet, this album is a little masterpiece. Recorded between 1980 and 1981. Steve said: "My musical education came from the folk clubs of Bedfordshire, Fairport Convention, John Peel, West Coast bands like Love, Jefferson Airplane, and The Doors, punk, The Beach Boys, and of course The Beatles." A very beautiful album which deserves a good spot as a shiny star in the folk music universe.
