Dawnwind "Looking Back on the Future"
(UK Acid-Folk 1976)

Jon Harflett and John Perkins began playing together in 1967, but their sole album, the beautifully melodic and intimate "Looking Back On The Future", didn't appear until 1975. Though critically praised, it was only issued as a private pressing and was thus condemned to obscurity until its legend began to grow through collectors and bootleggers. This is its first official issue, and comes complete with rare photographs, bonus tracks and detailed liner notes by the duo, making it an essential purchase for all lovers of acid folk. "Folk rock characterised by surreal lyrics and melancholic accompaniment... the album maintains a consistently good standard throughout" - The Tapestry Of Delights.
