A folksy trio, but one with a very sophisticated sound – thanks to some added arrangements from Richard Hewson – who gives the record a much fuller feel than you might guess from the acoustic image on the cover! Hunter Muskett's a UK trio featuring Chris George, Terry Hiscock, and Doug Morter – all on vocals and acoustic guitar – sometimes singing solo, sometimes in a warmly harmonic mode that really sounds great with the fuller backings. And the backings are subtle enough, just a bit here and there – in the way that Nick Drake's albums were augmented at points, but not all the way through – a wonderful balance that never softens the sound at all. Titles include "Every Time You Move", "Hey Little Girl", "Castle", "I Have A House", "Inside Mine", "The Wait", "Cardboard Man", "Davy Lowston", "Snow", and "Storm On The Shore".

Mellow Candle —
Swaddling Songs ... LP Decca/Acme (UK), 1972. Used Gatefold (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Trippy and melodic psychedelic folk with a mystical bent from Ireland's Mellow Candle – with truly beautiful and soaring female vocals – instrumentation given a sense of drama by harpsichord and some subtly dexterous guitar playing, and arch melodies that really dig deeply! Swaddling Songs is an apt titles in that the tunes sweep you up and pull you close, and often build upon their melodic sensibility in interesting ways. Titles include "Heaven Heath", "Sheep Season", "The Poet & The Witch", "Messenger Birds", "Reverend Sisters", "Buy Or Beware", "Vile Excesses", "Lonely Man", "Boulders On My Grave", Feeling High" and more.
