Wolverlei - "Wolverlei" (1978)
(LP, Stoof, MU 7445)

After Chimera, King's Galliard and Farmers Union it's time for another one from Dutch soil: Wolverlei. The group started as a trio in 1977. A year later Rens van der Zalm joins. Rens is probably best known as a member of 'Mozaik', the 'dream band' of Andy Irvine (with Donal Lunny, Nikola Parov and Bruce Molsky). Before 'Wolverlei' he was a member of the Dutch group 'Fungus'.
In Folkworld Jos Koning said:
"... But most people would say that Wolverlei was the best acoustic folk group the Netherlands have ever had. They only recorded two albums, but they are both classics. Although they worked with traditional material, they managed to invent a new and modern sound ..."
Of course it's up to you to decide if he was right or not....

Tracks:
1. Scheepjes over zee/Boerenmai
2. Tiedeliepats
3. Rozendanslied/Cramignon

Thank you. This was a very good transfer from LP. It would be great to have Wolverlei's second album, "Wind Tegen."
