2019: RARE a new album of seven recently penned songs from Caedmon’s 1978 line up: Angela Webb (Naylor), Jim Bisset, Ken Patterson, Sam Wilson and Simon Jaquet. Plus six songs from Netherbow recordings of 1975 and Haddington, live 1978. And a surprise.
The much loved fragile female vocals, searing electric guitar licks, ‘cello, mandolin and bass remain from the ’70’s sound; now supplemented with octave mandolin, accordion, djembe, flugel horn, and whistle. Caroline Brown and Sally Jaquet add to the vocal sound.
40+ years on from their eponymous album ‘Caedmon’ and 10 years on from “A Chicken to Hug’, the new songs echo the acid folk sound of the ’70s but has a contemporary feel. Folk meets laid back funk where Jim Bisset’s electric guitar cuts through the acoustic feel.
The album is available as a collectors’ limited 500 edition on vinyl including a 12″ LP and a 7” single.
Some CD digipak versions have been made, and the album will be available on most streaming sites to download.
