RARE album front cover

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.

A Chicken To Hug CD cover

The second album of twelve songs from Caedmon’s original line up: Angela Webb (Naylor), Jim Bisset, Ken Patterson, Sam Wilson and Simon Jaquet. The much loved fragile female vocals, searing electric guitar licks, ‘cello, mandolin and bass remain from the ’70’s sound; now supplemented with accordion, drum kit, trombone, and whistle.

32 years on from their eponymous album ‘Caedmon’ the content of the songs is personal, poignant and sometimes challenging. Acoustic folk, mixed, in well judged doses, with jazz, soul, African and gospel groove.

The album is available in a variety of formats: a limited CD digipak special initial release (1000 copies), complete with an eight page booklet from Amazon, or digital download from Amazon, iTunes, streamed on Spotify etc…
