This was Hedgehog Pie’s second album, and probably their best. Not as well known as other folk-rock bands, but think ‘Trees’ meets ‘Spyrogyra’ meets ‘Fairport’ meets ‘Pentangle’ meets ‘Jethro Tull’ meets ‘Steeleye Span’ – the latter with significant influence as Rick Kemp (Steeleye Span) produced the album with Geoff Heslop. If you are partial to any of these bands, then this is a must, as it is first class electric folk, even with a splattering of fuzz guitar for psych fans and also incorporated elements of jazz and hard rock.
This is a great copy of a really great album, that hasn’t been re-released on CD due to copyright issues, hence the music is really rare. Highly recommended album by a really skillful and imaginative folk rock bands, one of the best from the North east.
