[News] Guerssen Records reissue on vinyl Caedmon 1978 album

This all-inclusive reissue includes both sides of a separate single, allegedly left off the album because the band miscalculated the amount of material that would fit on the vinyl record! This is also the first band-authorized vinyl reissue, following several dodgy versions that have trickled out over the years.

There are hints of Steeleye Span’s medieval folk rock with fuzz guitars weaving amidst harpsichord flourishes throughout opener “Ten Maidens Fair,” Pentangle’s guitar-driven jazzy excursions in “Maker Man“, and Renaissance’s acrobatic arias flitting amongst Eastern-tinged proggy arrangements with “Death Of A Fox,” which also whips off an energetic Morris dance solo to encourage high-stepping before settling into a mournful violin dirge, a la Dr. Strangely Strange. They sure had an exciting, eclectic record collection!

Exquisite and lovely and living up to every bit of the hype the album has garnered these last 40+ years.
