Caedmon





















psychedelicfolk:
The fragility in it is very nice. So is the cello addition. Christian music. I like very much the title track.

According to 'Rockinworld' : "Reissue of extremely scarce Irish folk- rock LP. Rocked out trad. sound, many original songs, male & female vocals. Definitely a Spriguns-like sound."

Label comments : Caedmon's privately issued 1978 LP, has since it's rediscovery in 1992, been established as an expensive collectors item, rated as the best folk-rock album ever made, perhaps 2nd only to “Mellow Candle”. The sublime sound of Caedmon results from an unusual blend of styles, the fragile female vocals, admirable use of tension and atmosphere, savage fuzz-guitar, art rock leanings - everything from exquisite understatement to frantic show-off musicianship - a classic, by golly!

Hello and thank you very much for this post, Lizardson.
That's very nice. I appreciate your swiftness.
The music is beautiful, with this surprising contrast (but also the complementary link) between the voices and the electric guitar. Fine taste in the musical arrangements,so, I'm convinced : this one will be one of my next purchases.
Thanks again and long life to Time Has Told Me !

You made my day, Lizardson. Many thanks for this jewel from the green and rainy land of Galicia, Spain.

They're back! Caedmon were reunited after 30 years in May 2008 to write a new album for release in October 2008.

Have a look at the new website and youtube video.

In the spite of the misconception that this is an Irish folk-rock group Caedmon is actually 4 English guys (Well 3 guys and 1 girl) and a Scotsman (Jim). The album was actually recorded in Edinburg.
