Caedmon gets a mention in two new books on the market about 60’s / 70’s folk.
‘Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain’s Visionary Music’ by Rob Young
‘Seasons They Change: The Story of Acid and Psychedelic Folk’ by Jeanette Leech
Listening to Jeanette Leech’s Spotify playlist of Psyche and Acid Folk artists I sense that Caedmon is at the ‘more proficient’ end of the spectrum, in terms of arranging and musicianship (not something that I thought I’d feel).
Jeannette’s book is grand in scope with many strands followed from Britain, Stateside and Europe: she must have had a challenge in knowing what to include from all her research.
