A well-done look at a key moment in British music – that point when acoustic roots mixed with electric youth, and brought around a huge revival in the field of folk! The UK shifts at the end of the 60s were way different than those in the US – not nearly as simple as Dylan going electric, or folk harmony going pop – and as you'll hear in this set, there's a really progressive, revolutionary feel that runs through the music – one that's both got a great sense of history, yet a mission of personal change as well – quite far from overdone political tropes, yet with undeniable world-changing power in the end. The 2CD package is designed to accompany the book of the same name – and is divided up into Acoustic Eden and Electric Albion discs – each with their own feel. Titles include "Brother John" by Bread Love & Dreams, "Garden Song" by Bill Fay, "Music Of The Ages" by COB, "Diana" by Comus, "Oak Ash & Thorn" by Peter Bellamy, "John Barleycorn Must Die (first version)" by Traffic, "The Lark In The Morning" by Steeleye Span, "Country Road" by Unicorn, "Glasgerion" by Trees, "Glistening Glyndebourne" by John Martyn, and "Voices" by Nick Drake.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
