Faith, Folk & Festivity (Galliard CAL 4016) 1971 UK *
Another ﬁne very British-sounding folk endeavor from Mr. Smith and company featuring a similar mix of original songs, traditional tunes and the always welcome Sydney Carter (‘Bird Of Heaven’ and ‘The Crow On The Cradle’). Joined this time by The Common Round, a six—person folk group (four guys, two girls), pictured on the back with three guitars, upright bass, maracas, and tambourine. The gals in particular have lovely voices. ‘Let The Cosmos Ring’, ‘Go, Prophet, Go!’, ‘Down Huddersﬁeld Road’, ‘Pop Goes The Money’, ‘The Killer’ and ‘How Can I Keep From Singing’ are some of the ﬁfteen titles included here. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
