Request
Marie Celeste "And Then Perhaps" (UK Folk 1971)

Ultra rare album by legendary psych/folk band. Mystic dark and beautiful. Like most musically strong private pressings, this is ultra-rare and changes hands for vast sums of money. 200 copies were pressed originally and the album blends cover versions (Gershwin's Summertime, Paul Simon's I Am A Rock and Joni Mitchell and Tom Paxton compositions), traditional material and some originals with Prisoner the best of the small crop. Most tracks have an acoustic backing with twin female vocals. The band were from the Midlands.
A must for lovers of esoteric underground UK folk in a similar vein to the style and mood of Oberon, Tickawinda etc..."


01. Prisoner
02. When Morning Breakes
03. Sally Free And Easy
04. And Then Perhaps
05. Theme Based On Greensleeves
06. On The Other Side Of The Hill


07. Night In The City
08. I Am A Rock
09. Summertime
10. The Swallow Song
11. Ruby Tuesday
12. A Slice Of Peace

Don't mean to be a pain and post again, but is there any chance that this could be reposted. I've been looking for this for ages!

Many thanks!

I saw this band in the late 60's and early 70's at a number of events. They used to run their own Folk Club called the Sandpiper. At one Gig in Wolverhampton an unknown guy named "Robert Plant" got up on stage and sang with them. Great times, great memories.
