"Privately released in 1973 (Brown BVH1) and limited to just 250 copies, this debut album by the Kent based four piece is very much made in the traditional English folk music style. 6 & 12 string guitars, fiddle, and tambourine are all featured alongside some excellent male/female harmony singing. Often compared to early Steeleye Span in their treatment of traditional folk, Vulcan's Hammer also fit nicely alongside Spriguns of Tolgus, Moths, Stone Angel and others from that now highly-collectable early '70s UK folk scene. There are jigs, the tale of John Barleycorn, stories of Old England as well as an ode to Middle Earth all to be found here.These are passionate performances too, with all the rough edges left in to give the album a loose, live feel. With prices now 'through the roof' for original copies (with the insert of course!), and the current interest in all things acoustic, now is the time to sample this piece of '70s UK folk history!"
