Essential: A masterpiece of Progressive-Folk music
The Young Tradition was formed on 18 April 1965 by Peter Bellamy (8 September 1944 – 19 September 1991), Royston Wood (born 1935 died 8 April 1990) and Heather Wood (born Arielle Heather Wood, 31 March 1945, Attercliffe, Sheffield, Yorkshire) (who was unrelated to Royston Wood). Most of their repertoire was traditional British folk music, sung without instrumental accompaniment, and was drawn especially from the music of the Copper Family from Sussex, who had a strong oral musical tradition. They augmented the pure folk music with some composed songs which were strongly rooted in the English folk tradition, such as sea shanties written by Cyril Tawney, of which “Chicken on a Raft” was the most notable.

Label: Chrysalis/FV 41044 | Released: 1971 | This Issue: 1983 | Genre: Progressive-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
“Aqualung” isn’t only a great album, it’s somehow a feel of live from the early 70’s. Maybe not as ambitious and essential in progressive rock terms as “Thick As A Brick”, but in terms of folk prog an absolute masterpiece concept record, too. I always feel like I am travelling back in the 70’s when I listen to classic tracks like “Locomotive Breath”, “Cross-Eyed Mary”, “Mother Gose” or the title track.

Excellent addition to any Prog-Rock music collection
Really good follow up to Heavy Horses despite all the difficulty surrounding the band, and reminds us not only how prolific and accomplished Ian Anderson is, but the impact Jethro Tull’s music has had on everything from folk rock and pop to minstrel metal and symphonic cheese. It doesn’t chart much new territory, the songs resembling classic Anderson shanties more than something thematic, leaner than previous work and though not outstanding like Horses, it’s one of those albums that catches you off-guard with the quality of the material. Thanks, Ian, for being there in hard times and good.

I didn’t know that Alan Stivell was on PA as I always thought he was just Folk, not properly prog. However this album has some prog moments, in particular “Delivrance” that’s my favourite track here.
It’s has been my first Stivell’s vinyl and it’s still the one that I prefer. I was lucky in chosing this one because my second (and last) purchase was Tremain In’Is that’s only harp and voice. Too much also for me.

This review is based on the LP version of this album (the CD version if you can find it, apparently has additional songs). The first seven tracks formed side one, and are accoustic: Alan playing the harp and singing, with some additional accompaniment, all of of haunting and beautiful.

Essential: A masterpiece of Progressive-Rock music
As I already said before in a Darryl Way’s Wolf review, bands who play simultaneously electric violin and electric guitar are rare; The Flock belong to this select group. As if it was not enough, a very inspiring Zappa-esque mini-brass section garnishes furthermore the melodies, often falling into a refined fusion style: because of all that, The Flock remains a very unique band, capable of being hard rock, big band, bluesy, psychedelic, fusion or even folk: that’s why we can classify them as an art rock artist, since they can borrow different musical styles.
