Anno domini "On This New Day" (UK Psych Rock/Folk 1971)

Formed in Ireland by Taylor (ex-Eire Apparent), the original vinyl of their mildly flavoured folksy album is surprisingly hard to find. The music is gentle and contains some nice melodic patterns. They were obviously influenced by The Byrds. The album begins with a good version of their 'Rock'n'Roll Star'. 'Bad Lands Of Ardguth' is full of ringing guitars. Best of the melodic, folky songs are 'The Trapper' and 'The Good Life I Have Known'. There's also a heavy rockin' version of Dion's 'Daddy Rowlin'. Recommended for fans of melodic acoustic folk.

John Jones and his brother Trevor had earlier played in the Australian band Sweatty Betty. When the group split, the Jones brothers formed Jonesy, Taylor joined Brown & O'Brien, while Mercer went solo and Scott joined T.F.Much and later Bruno AD.

Nice download - however, except for tracks 2,4,5 the others are in one channel (I've downloaded twice to make sure)- can you reupload?
