Shirley & Dolly Collins

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Shirley & Dolly Collins - Anthems In Eden Anthems In Eden
Folk New - LP SKAO 370 Harvest
Sealed 1969 Stereo Original Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. Pristine Copy. Also Features Christopher Hogwood, David Munrow And Others. "One Of The Unimpeachable Gems Of The Late-'60s English Folk Scene, Shirley & Dolly Collins' Anthems In Eden Grew Out Of The Sisters' Love Of David Munrow's Musica Reservata, An Ensemble That Combined Medieval And "Early" Instrumentation With Music Of More Or Less Similar Vintage -- An Obvious Notion If One Thinks About It, But One That Had Been Very Much Snowballed Beneath The Similarly Contemporary Obsession With Electrifying Those Same Songs For The Modern Rock Idiom. The Side-Long "A Song-Story Medley," Is Peerless, As Munrow's So-Called "Natural Orchestra" Of Crumhorns, Sackbuts, Cornetts And Rackets Traces A Landscape Where "The Maypole, Which [Was] Once The Centre Of So Many Village Greens, Was Replaced By The Memorial Stone." It Is A Haunting Piece Of Music, The Instrumentation Delightfully Understated, At The Same Time Appearing To Emphasize All The Emotion, Heartbreak, And Hope That Shirley Collins' Own Lovely Voice Conveys. Her Version Of The Oft-Recorded "Our Captain Cried," Midway Through The Cycle, Is Certainly All But Definitive, While The "Random Selection Of Material" That Makes Up The Second Half Of The Album Also Boasts Its Fair Share Of Beauties -- A Stunning Take On The Incredible String Band's "God Dog" Included."
