Robin Williamson & Clive Palmer "At the Pure Fountain"
Live 1999

Some thirty years after they last recorded together, Robin Williamson and Clive Palmer have rekindled their musical partnership. The two founding members of the Incredible String Band have picked up where they left off with the String Band's first album- in fact, they have reprised some of the repertoire from that period that somehow transcends time and fashion and sounds as fresh and exhilarating at the end of the century as it did back then. As Joe Boyd commented at the time of signing them to Elektra Records: "They were taking Scots songs that hadn't necessarily made the trip over the Appalachians and playing them as if they had." At The Pure Fountain finds Robin and Clive continuing their world music journey assisted by Paula Gardiner: double bass, Phil Tomkins: violin, Maggie Tomkins: accordion, Peter Stacey: soprano and tenor sax, Lawson Dando: keyboards, Gina Brown: keyboards, Bina Williamson: vocals.
