|Tony Caro & John - Blue Clouds |
Tony Dore and John Clark met as kids and following their university stint in England they went on to play clubs, eventually hooking up with their singer Caroline forming the trio that would record their collector's favorite All On the First Day
| which saw reissue in 2002. Now Drag City has collected rarities and outtakes from that same time period that delve again into their Incredible String Band leanings but wander further into Pentangle / Fairport Convention territory, while (or whilst, this is English folk) adding in ephemera like a primitive drum machine to the fold. The tracks are just as entrancing as their lone album and for any fans of British folk and it seems to work seamlessly as a sort of "lost album" that wanders appeases the folk-rock stalwarts as much as the Jansch-ian fans of unfettered stringwork and bare bones folk.
