Immortal Classic of British Folk

Classic 1967 recording finally appears on CD. Produced by Joe Boyd with exquisite arrangements by Dolly Collins and contributions from Robin Williamson and Mike Heron of the Incredible String Band, and Bram Martin (cellist on the Beatles' 'Eleanor Rigby').

Shirley Collins: vocals, banjo, dulcimer
Dolly Collins: pipe organ
Bram Martin: cello
Robin Williamson: tin whistle, chanter, percussion
Mike Heron: percussion

"The songs on this record belong to ladies fair and tender, the ballad-heroines with lily hands, riding through meadows distracted, saving or losing their virtue, getting pregnant, eloping with gypsies, dying of remorse, twined in the True-Lover's Knot."

Shirley Collins,November 1967

I don't know how it is possible that I had never heard of Shirley Collins as I have been a huge fan of The Incredible String Band throughout the years ...

This sounds like it would have been right up my alley (so to speak) ... but alas the linking file has now been degraded and removed.
