The live reputation of the mighty Young Tradition lives long in the memories of all who heard them during their brief career. Live recordings were thought not to exist until, 45 years later, an American fan remembered the reel-to-reel recording he'd made at Oberlin College on November 17th, 1968. Carefully restored, these tapes are now released by Fledg'ling Records on CD. The Young Tradition formed on April 18th, 1965 by Peter Bellamy, Royston Wood, and Heather Wood -- with a repertoire from the British folk tradition, style from Carnaby Street and lashings of attitude, they soon firmly established themselves on the folk scene. They recorded for Transatlantic Records and international tours soon followed. Record companies will always make extravagant claims for their releases, but Oberlin 1968 really is a rare and truly wonderful historical release.
