"A cracker of an album"

Red Rose Country Radio

"At times I'm reminded of Dylan, but it also has elements of The Band and the mellower side of the Byrds."

Music Street Journal

 

Looking Forward Thinking Back is a collection of songs that were written and recorded in the early 1970's and finally released as an album in 2018, after the original tapes, thought to have been lost, were rediscovered.

If you liked the folk and country influenced soft rock of the early 1970s, give this a try. You'll feel like you've discovered a long lost treasure from that era - because you have.

Across The Great Divide: Getting It Together In The Country is the first compilation to shine a light on this curiously neglected stitch in the constantly-evolving British rock tapestry of the late Sixties/early Seventies.

 

Joining huge names like Rod Stewart, Traffic and Fairport Convention are cult underground acts, mainstream Sixties pop groups updating their sound, a post-Dylan wave of back-to-the-land singer/songwriters and a clutch of righteously obscure rural rockers whose music failed to find an outlet at the time.

Spaced Out - The Story Of Mushroom Records  is the first-ever compilation to tell the story of Mushroom from its roots in the psychedelic era and its evolution across the early 1970s. With a foreword and involvement from label boss Vic Keary, this double-CD set reveals how Mushroom epitomised the excitement and diversity of the progressive era.

Over the course of three years, Mushroom issued a dizzying variety of records, embracing a broad range of music styles from Prog Rock to Singer-Songwriters, Traditional Folk, Indian music, avant garde jazz and world music.
