Changing Horses
Used - LP - EKS 74057
1969 Rare White Label Promo With Custom Inner Sleeve Housed In A Gatefold Jacket. Strong VG++ Jacket. "Although Generally Regarded As One Of The Incredible String Band's Sub-Standard Efforts, Changing Horses Has An Appealing Looseness And Sense Of Fun Which Nicely Balances The Often Over-Serious Nature Of The Band's Always Strange Mix Of English Folk And Psycheldelia. With Two Tracks Topping The 15-Minute Mark In Length, Some Of The Record Comes Off Like A Rambling, Drunken Living Room Jam Session. This Version Of The Incredible String Band Includes Two Women, Rose And Liquorice, Who Add Some Nice, High Vocal Harmonies To The Standard Mike Heron/Robin Williamson Sound. Rose Also Contributes Some Nice Tuba-Influenced Electric Bass Work Throughout The Album. Changing Horses Has A Distinct Lack Of Memorable Songs (With The Possible Exception Of Williamson's "Mr. And Mrs.," Which, Because Of Its Raw Production, Organ And Guitar Work, Bears A Striking Resemblance At Times To The Velvet Underground) But, Due To The Group's Willingness To Take Chances, Bears Repeated Listenings." AMG - Pemberton Roach. more

The 5000 Spirits Or The Layers Of The Onion
New - LP - EKS-74010
Scarce, Factory Sealed Stereo Pressing, Possible '67 Original. (Label Variation Or Whether It Is A Repress Is Unknown). Cut Out Hole. "In 1967, Joe Boyd Had Signed The Incredible String Band, Who Were Then Down To Robin Williamson, Mike Heron, And Licorice McKechnie, To Elektra. The 5000 Spirits Or Layers Of The Onion Had Been Crafted In A Cottage In Glasgow, But Boyd Wanted A Proper Recording Studio To Get It On Tape. He Chose Engineer John Wood's Chelsea Studio For The Sessions. Recorded On A Four-Track Machine, Boyd And Wood Proceeded To Capture The Very Best Of The Dozens Of Songs Williamson And Heron Brought In. Influenced Heavily By The Era -- This Was The Summer Of Love, After All -- And North African Music Due To Williamson’s Recent Trip To Morocco, The Set Is One Of The Most Ambitious Albums In The Band’s Catalog. The Trio Were Also Accompanied By Danny Thompson On Bass On Seven Tracks, As Well As Nazir Jarazbhoy On Sitar. The Standout Tracks Include “First Girl I Loved” (Later Covered By Judy Collins And Jackson Browne), And The Cosmic Folk-Blues “The Mad Hatter’s Song.” On This Set, British Folk Often Comes Up Against Against Williamson’s Fascination With Middle Eastern Sounds -- Check The Bowed Gimbri Hovering And Flitting About The Acoustic Guitar On “Chinese White,” And The Hand Drums Underscoring The Acoustic Slide Guitar On “The Hedgehog Song.” Thompson’s Bass And Williamson’s Harmonica Are The Only Elements That Keep “Blues For The Muse” On The Ground -- Barely A Blues At All Because Of The Way It Pushes The 12-Bar Envelope. The Brief “my Name Is Death” Begins As A One-Chord Drone Before It Moves Back To A More Formally Constructed 18th Century Traditional Song. The Meld Of All ISB’s Influences Are Heard On “gently Tender,” A Beautiful If Somewhat Anarchic Tune Where Flutes, Acoustic Blues, Hand Drums, Bass, Gimbri, And Sitar Are All Employed. This Set Stands As One Of The True Masterpieces In The Group's Catalog." AMG - Thom Jurek. more

The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter
Used - LP - EKS 74021
1968 Gold Label Stereo Original Still In Shrink Wrap. Appears Unplayed. “The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter Stands As The Incredible String Band's Undisputed Classic Among Critics And Musicians Alike -- Ask Robert Plant, Who Touted Its Influence On Led Zeppelin's First Album And General Direction. Recorded And Released In 1968, The Album Hit Number Five On The U.K. Album Charts, And Was Nominated For A Grammy In The U.S. It Was Produced By Joe Boyd, And Engineered By John Wood Using 24-Track Technology. Robin Williamson, Mike Heron, And Licorice McKechnie Also Utilized The Talents Of Dolly Collins (Vocals, Flute, Organ, And Piano), And David Snell (Harp). Williamson And Heron Employed A Vast Array Of Instruments On These Songs Including Sitar, Gimbri, Pan Pipe, Oud, Chahanai, Mandolin, Guitars, Hammond B-3, Dulcimer, Harpsichord, Pan Pipes, Oud, Water Harp, And Harmonica. The Songs Were Much More Freeform And Experimental. Check Heron’s 13-Minute “A Very Cellular Song,” Which Incorporates Elements From A Sikh Hymn And A Bahamian Spiritual. Using The Hammond, A Gimbri, Pan Pipes, Handclaps, And Other Instruments, It Begins On A Two-Chord Vamp That Employs A Vocal Round In Five-Part Harmony, With Secular And Spiritual Lyrics. It’s Simply Infectious. Other Notables Include The Stellar “The Minotaur’s Song,” With Its Call And Response Chorus Played On Guitars, Upright Piano, And Six-Part Harmonies. It Melds A Children's Song With A Drinking Song To Humorous And Utterly Memorable Effect. Elsewhere, “Waltz Of The New Moon,” Employs Two-Chord Drones On Acoustic Guitar With A Meld Of Middle Eastern Vocal Styles And Scottish Field Songs. “Three Is A Green Crown” Is A Psychedelic Folk Song In All Its Hypnotic Droning Glory With Williamson’s Primitive Sitar Playing Featured Prominently. The Tender, Exotic, "Nightfall,” The Album’s Closer, Is A Lullaby, With Guitar And Sitar Accompanying The Vocal In Whole Tone Intervals. The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter Is The Most Ambitious, Focused, And Brilliantly Executed Record In ISB’s Catalog.” Thom Jurek, AMG. more
