GUEST,Rana Folk rock - Got a favorite? (87* d) RE: Folk rock - Got a favorite? 05 Jan 02

Must agree with Jeri about 5 Hand Reel - fortunate to have their 3 lps.

Obviously Fairport (upto 9) and Steel Eye (upto Below the Salt or the one after). Managed to see Steel Eye at B'Ham Town Hall in 1970 or so.

Original Albion Band was great - saw them at Reading in '73 I believe. And Sandy Denny at Reading U. when Gerry Conway and Trevor Lucas came on at the encore - basically Fotheringay after they disbanded!

Of the American stuff that would have approached "folk-rock" I suppose, the only group I really followed was It's a Beautiful Day"

Must admit apart from the folk I concentrated on numerous European (particuarly German) rock - the likes of Faust, Can and Amon Duul II - must admit also I still listen to this stuff much to the displeasure of my other half.

Cheers Rana
