Despite being burdened by a lot of trombone activity and occasional cheap home-made string arrangements, this folk-rock group of five often concocts an admirable underground electric sound. Enough anyway that this Irish obscurity sometimes gets pushed up into the $400 range. Once you get used to that trombone, tracks like the wah—wah/fuzz instrumental ‘Wilderness’ begin to find their appeal, Mostly female lead vocals, particularly moving on the dreamy hem-free minor-key ballad ‘Backslider’. Blues moves here and there with noteworthy guitar solos. A couple whimsical pop numbers with an almost Dixieland feel. Big fuzz and drums on the garagy ‘What Shall It Profit A Man’, also thankfully free of the horns. Overall a mixed blessing with both awkward and brilliant moments. Wait for the bargain copy to turn up. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
