Time Out of Mind was a legitimate comeback, Bob Dylan's first collection of original songs in nearly ten years and a risky rumination on mortality, but its sequel, Love and Theft, is his true return to form, not just his best album since Blood on the Tracks, but the loosest, funniest, warmest record he's made since The Basement Tapes. There are none of the foreboding, apocalyptic warnings that permeated Time Out of Mind and even underpinned "Things Have Changed," his Oscar-winning theme to Curtis Hanson's 2000 film Wonder Boys. Just as important, Daniel Lanois' deliberately arty, diffuse production has retreated into the mist, replaced by an uncluttered, resonant production that gives Dylan and his ace backing band room to breathe…

Upon his emergence during the mid-'60s, Donovan was anointed "Britain's answer to Bob Dylan," a facile but largely unfounded comparison which compromised the Scottish folk-pop troubadour's own unique vision. Where the thrust of Dylan's music remains its bleak introspection and bitter realism, Donovan fully embraced the wide-eyed optimism of the flower power movement, his ethereal, ornate songs radiating a mystical beauty and childlike wonder; for better or worse, his recordings remain quintessential artifacts of the psychedelic era, capturing the peace and love idealism of their time to perfection…

Celtic Pink Floyd is a project devoted to the arrangement of classic Pink Floyd songs with a Celtic rock twist. Traditional instruments such as; uilleann pipes, fiddle, tin whistle, accordion, banjo, dulcimer, bodhrán, mandolin, and bones are utilized, as well as contemporary vocals, guitars, bass and drums. Started simply as a "crazy, but just may work" idea, Celtic Pink Floyd has some amazing vocalists and musicians contributing their expertise to this twelve-track CD. Arrangers, producers and musicians, Damon Stout & Brian Stout are the guilty parties behind the madness, all while working in conjunction with producer Michael Vail Blum to form a hybrid of traditional Celtic music combined with classic rock.

Released in 1970 on a tiny Reflection UK label, the only Dogfeet LP included a typical for this period mixture of progressive sounds based on heavy-ish rock, blues and psychedelic folk, sometimes similar to Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (from 1969 'Then Play On' album), early Wishbone Ash and even Quicksilver. Unfortunately the original master tapes were long lost, so near mint original vinyl (although with some usual pressing imperfections) was used instead. The album was very carefully and accurately remastered and now sounds better than ever - without annoying compression! As a bonus 4 rare demo tracks were also added.

Mr. Fox always stood out from their '70s British folk-rock contemporaries. They tended to disregard electric guitar for other instruments, and weave complex arrangements that highlighted the music rather than any technical virtuosity. Fronted by Bob and Carole Pegg, there was often a darkness about their own material that's especially evident on this reissue of Mr. Fox (1970) and The Gipsy (1971). Songs like "Mr. Fox" and "The Hanged Man" seemed to linger on the shadows, and the standard of songwriting was consistently good throughout (with a couple of exceptions, "Elvira Madigan," which is far from essential, and the long, overly tedious "The Gipsy"). But they're outweighed by the delights, which even extend to a pair of traditional arrangements, "The House Carpenter" (performed with suitable portent) and "All the Good Things," which saw them taking a brief detour into Americana…

A Cambridge folk-rock band who started life playing Friday and Saturday nights at the Anchor pub in Silver Street, Cambridge. Their 1974 privately released cassette was sold to students at live performances and less than 50 copies were produced. The cassette format has ensured that their value has not reached the epic proportions of the vinyl follow-up "Jack With A Feather", which boasted better sound quality and duplicated some material from the earlier cassette. The playing on the album was good and almost all the material was traditional.

Though short-lived, Tempest left an interesting legacy of blues-rock that was tinged with psychedelic influences and a bit of foreshadowing the emergence of glam in the U.K. This two-disc set takes the full recordings of Tempest's lone two releases and puts them on one disc. Hard-rocking as any of their peers, Tempest also brought a jazzier side to their sound, no doubt in part to Allan Holdsworth's involvement. The second disc contains two previously unreleased tunes and the much in-demand BBC sessions that have been traded with great frequency (and of much lower quality) by collectors…

This group started as one of those early 70's folk rock prog groups along with Barrock, Ougenweide, Wittheuser & Westrupp (a guest on this album) etc. and produced one of the best and most stunning folk prog album ever, then disappeared for a while due to their label bankruptcy, before resurfacing as a symphonic prog band and a slightly differently-spelled name. Named after the poet, (there is another German group who did this with Novalis), the least we can say is that this album is pure poetry. This absolutely delightful record is an incredibly successful mix of medieval ambiances, stunning 60's folk rock, slight Indian music influences, the whole thing sprinkled with a tad of hippy idealism and great progressive arrangements including the odd Mellotron…

With a strum of his guitar and an arsenal of quotable lines, Lookman Adekunle Salami brings the spirit of 1970s singer/songwriter folk into his post-modern acoustic blues. Performing as L.A. Salami, he invites influences like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Elliott Smith, and Joni Mitchell to his debut, Dancing with Bad Grammar. A collection of 14 ditties (and one bonus track), Dancing is a mostly low-key affair, with Salami's everyman storytelling strewn over plaintive guitar that simmers like smoke wafting through a bohemian cafe. Beside his iconic influences, listeners will also catch hints of Conor Oberst's wounded delicacy, KT Tunstall's sweetness and soul, Alex Turner's mischievous wit, and Courtney Barnett's droll observations…

Due to her youth (16 when she first hit Myspace, 17 when signed to an imprint of EMI, and 18 when her debut album came out), perky-cute looks and extremely British diction, singer/songwriter Laura Marling got a lot of comparisons to Lily Allen in her early buzz, but the quietly compelling Alas I Cannot Swim is not at all a frothy pop confection. A folk-tinged AAA pop record based on Marling's alluringly husky voice and graceful acoustic guitar, Alas I Cannot Swim would be more aptly compared to the likes of Feist, Keren Ann, or Regina Spektor. (In the album's press kit, Marling reveals her primary influence to be Bonnie "Prince" Billy, which also seems appropriate.) Although not to draw too forbidding a comparison, opening track and first single "Ghosts" is most strongly reminiscent of Joni Mitchell circa For the Roses, both in Marling's expressive vocal phrasing and the expert shifts in the arrangement between solo acoustic passages and full-band sections, not to mention an excellently deployed string section. That old-school '70s singer/songwriter vibe predominates throughout the album, in fact.

The sole album from this fantastic band is one of the best overlooked folk-progressive rock recordings of the late 6o's. This London-based group had just one actual British member, the rest of the musicians hailing from Norway, Australia, and Canada. This wonderful and truly fascinating album is a combination of strong original material, male-female vocal harmonies, deftly textured mixes of electric and acoustic guitars, tasteful orchestration and soaring bittersweet melodies. Unfortunately, the band broke up in late 1969 and soon after Lucas and Conway formed the rhythm section of Fotheringay. Rosen later played with Mogul Thrash and Hultgreen joined the band Sailor. This definitive edition has been expanded with many rare & unreleased tracks.
