Caedmon-Caedmon (1978-Kissing Spell)

Caedmon's privately issued 1978 LP, has since it's rediscovery in 1992, been established as an expensive collectors item, rated as the best folk-rock album ever made, perhaps 2nd only to “Mellow Candle”. The sublime sound of Caedmon results from an unusual blend of styles, the fragile female vocals, admirable use of tension and atmosphere, savage fuzz-guitar, art rock leanings - everything from exquisite understatement to frantic show-off musicianship - a classic, by golly!

Some say best folk-rock made!

Check it out


Jim Bisset - Electric and acoustic guitars, vocals
Simon Jaquet - Acoustic guitar, mandolin, bongos, vocals
Angela Naylor - Lead vocals
Ken Patterson - Keyboards, cello, acoustic guitar, vocals
Sam Wilson - Bass guitar, vocals

That's a good addition to any folk-rock collection.
I personaly think this album is a bit uneven *however* there are some really-really beautiful tunes such as the touching "sea song", the spirited "death of a fox" and the clasic "aslan" :)

Hi Vlasdance,

But for Caedmon I've come too late, link expired. PLEASE could you re-up it? As you said music saves lives, and this will most definitely save mine :-))
Thanks a lot in advance,
