What the folk is going on?



OK, just a collection of (mostly) obscure folk/folk rock music covering the years 1969-1973. Some elements of prog in 2 or 3 of the tracks, but nothing wrong with prog folk! I was going to do 2 discs, one of English folk bands and one of American/rest of the world... but decided what the hell I'll just try to make it as diverse as possible. And folk is often maligned as men with beards, fingers in the ear, singing songs of the sea or of days gone by etc etc. I hope this mix will tempt anyone who has steered clear of anything folk related to take a listen and hopefully find something to their liking,
