Heron - Yellow Roses

Heron - Yellow Roses

...From their first self-titled album, released in 1970 on Dawn Records (an imprint of Pye, specializing mostly in prog), a charming slab of British Isles folk that bears no trace of the braying donkey-like vocals that marred other similar albums from The Incredible String Band (a village drama teacher lending her vocal skills on those album cuts, perhaps?) et al, and possesses forward-thinking production and instrumentation that allow the album to age quite handsomely. According to lore, this album was recorded in the middle of a field: bird-sounds!

The group re-united last year, releasing a couple of albums and performing in England, but I haven't had the chance to listen to them. Relaxx Records is run by Heron member Steve Jones, and albums are available for order from his website, and there's a film titled In A Field Of Their Own documenting their return to performing music again.
