"When visionary UK underground scene-maker and entrepreneur Joe Boyd started making records under his own Witchseason banner in 1967, he could have had little idea of the staggering amount of uber-influential artists he would go on to produce over the next few years. Step up Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, The Incredible String Band, Sandy Denny, Vashti Bunyan, Nico and Dr. Strangely Strange to name but a few. He licensed most of these records out to the super-cool Island label where they joined the likes of Traffic, John Martyn and The Amazing Blondel and unwittingly formed the backbone of the now hugely revered and collectable British folk-rock movement of the late '60s and '70s. First issued in the '90s and promptly deleted, this set features tracks from such great albums as Fairport Convention's Liege & Lief and What We Did On Our Holidays, Nick Drake's Pink Moon, John Martyn's The Tumbler, The Incredible String Band's Earthspan, Richard & Linda Thompson's I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight, Traffic's John Barleycorn Must Die, Sandy Denny's Sandy, Fotheringay's Fotheringay, Mike Heron's Smiling Men With Bad Reputations and many more seminal cornerstones of the era. An updated and intensified re-working of this lost Island Records folk-rock sampler, re-mastered in the usual Rev-Ola style! Features rare tracks unavailable on CD elsewhere!"
