Extradition-Hush (1971-Australian Acid Folk/ Psych/ Psychedelic)

Simply gorgeous presentation of this classic Australian acid-folk item. Extradition have everything you want from this genre: a female singer with a voice like a bell (Shayna Karlin), male singers who don't suck; long hair; beards; songs that romanticize Ice Ages and the phases of the Sun and the Moon; harmonium; nine-minute songs; frolics with sticks, stones, gongs, chimes, palm fronds, and drums in the name of Meher Baba. The live recording tacked onto the reissue as a bonus is just as valuable - Oscar Wilde's "Ballad of Reading Gaol" set to music, covers of Tom Paxton and Leroy Carr, a few bluesier Extradition originals, and a stunning version of the album's "Ice."

Amazing album! Incredible psych-acid feeling, sometimes psychedelic, sometimes eastern influences too!Veeeeery interesting!!

Thanks I will download this.

I was a friend of one of the musicians a few years after. There was another album with the song 'Ice' but I think the same singer, last album of the band 'Tully'.

A singer called Margaret Roadknight also recorded her own version of that song, and sang it regularly in concerts in 1970's. She is still performing.
