Some Other Morning (Koala KOA P 016) 1976 UK *
Beautiful delicate British progressive folk custom featuring lovely female lead singing alternating with fragile male vocals that are imperfect yet charming. This is an exceptional record, on equal footing with classics like Presence and Caedmon. Several songs combine acoustic guitar and piano for soft melancholy moods, including ‘Just A Beginner’, ‘Better Day’, the title track, and ‘Hill Climbing For Beginners’, the latter a cover of the Water Into Wine Band song. Other selections like ‘A Song For Judas’, ‘Longer And Longer’, ‘Sand In My Shoes’ and ‘Winter Lady’ build a brisk folky sound, skillfully mixing rhythm and lead acoustic guitar. Gorgeous ethereal female vocals on ‘September Night Song’ and ‘Summer’s End’. A super rarity, too – don’t be surprised to see a four-digit price tag! The group’s name is derived from The Chronicles Of Narnia, as is the attractive b&w pen-and-ink cover artwork. Pete Ryder and Sian Harry are members of the group – see the entry for their excellent On Our Way Home album on the Profile label. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
This one was on the Heavenly Grooves Site. Thank you Donald for the label and sleeve photos.
