The Incredible String Band "The Balmore Hoard"
Home recordings 1966-67

After returning from Morocco, Robin and Licorice lived at the home of Mary Stewart in Balmore, a few miles north of Glasgow. During renovations in 1996, a hoard of reel-to-reel tapes from that period were discovered, along with a water-colour painting and home-made fiddle, both created by Robin. Among the tapes were ones labelled 'Robin', 'Mike' and 'Robin and Mike', featuring home recordings of Robin and Mike rehearsing (both solo and together), Jamming, and even, what seems to be, planning the set for their November 1966 concert at the Royal Albert Hall, complete with introductions! The original tapes were fairly fragile and the recording quality was pretty rough, so they were subsequently electronically 'cleaned-up' by Tom Barwood.

How would you describe this kind of music? Psychedelic Folk?

I never thought I'd be able to hear the famous Balmore tapes. I'm amazed anyone even has a copy, and I'd be very grateful if this were reposted soon.
