Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you ca...view item »

Mikael Tariverdiev
Seventeen Moments of Spring

Mikael Tariverdiev's score to the legendary (at least in ex-Soviet states) Seventeen Moments of Spring. Though Tariverdiev was initially reluctant to get involved, his soundtrack for the 12 part series would become one of the most iconic in the history of Russian filmmaking. The show follows a Soviet s...view item »

Bert Jansch
A Man I’d Rather Be (Part I)

The Bert Jansch estate has worked with Earth Recordings to bring us A Man I'd Rather Be (Part 1). The collection arrives as a 4-LP set in case-bound book or 4-CD set in book-back packaging. With music culled from the highly prolific Jansch's '60s years, namely: 'Bert Jansch'; 'It Don't Bother Me'; 'Jack Orion' and ...view item »

Bert Jansch
L.A. Turnaround

As a glance at the album title might lead you to guess, L.A. Turnaround was one of the albums that grew out of the time that Scottish folk troubadour Bert Jansch spent in America, adding a certain twist to Jansch’s formerly rather traditional sound. This reissue presents the original 1974 album al...view item »

Bert Jansch
The Black Swan (single)

The title track from the late Bert Jansch’s final album, rightfully presented as a single in the 7” format here. It’s a remarkable song, featuring Jansch’s noble old voice and guitar wrapped around melancholy cello lines from Helena Espvall (Espers). And ...view item »

Dave Evans
The Words Inbetween

Another superlative piece of English guitar folk from the fertile ground that was the early 70’s. Dave Evans’ The Words In Between was home-taped  and showcases the man’s astounding fingerpicking and gorgeous sense for melody. Less heard than many of its contemporaries, now's the time to hear ...view item »

Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna
Alias Grace (Original Mini Series Soundtrack)

Soundtrack for the adaptation of Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace. Mychael and Jeff Danna have worked on everything from orchestral Celtic music to working on soundtracks for the likes of The Life of Pi, and Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck. Their taut score refl...view item »

Bert Jansch
A Rare Conundrum

Scottish folk supremo Bert Jansch produced his eleventh album for public consumption in 1977, leading a band that featured Ralph McTell among others. A recent stint in America seems to lend a touch of the blues to the traditional folk style, adding fresh flavour. This reissue edition on Earth Recordings adds an ...view item »

Bert Jansch
Santa Barbara Honeymoon

Santa Barbara Honeymoon was one of the albums that grew out of the time that Scottish folk troubadour Bert Jansch spent in America, wherein he found new elements to bolster his sound. The album features as one of its highlights a cover of Jackson C Frank’s ‘Blues Run The Game’, and the...view item »

Bert Jansch
A Man I’d Rather Be (Part II)

The Man I’d Rather Be (Part II) is a 4 LP or 4 CD box set documenting the solo work of the legendary and influential guitarist Bert Jansch. The focus is on the late ‘60s and early ‘70s  where Jansch worked from a wider palette, mixing pop, blues and baroque into his folk sound. Bassist Danny Thomps...view item »

The Ballad Of Shirley Collins

The documentary The Ballad of Shirley Collins traces the long and eventful life of our era’s foremost singer of traditional English folk song. The film captures sessions for her album Lodestar, her first after decades of tragic silence. It also recalls her 1959 song-collecting trip to the US with Alan Lomax...view item »

Judy Dyble
Anthology: Part One

Judy Dyble’s comprehensive triple-CD collection Gathering The Threads is an in-depth tour of the work of a remarkable folk-rock artist.

Mikael Tariverdiev
Olga Sergeevna

Mikael Tariverdiev’s score to the highly regarded 1975 Soviet TV series Olga Sergeevna has never before been released outside of Russia, but change is afoot… Earth Recordings have masterminded this ...view item »

Avocet Revisited

Designed as almost a tribute but in the form of an accompanying piece for scottish folk musician Bert Jansch’s Avocet released in 1979, Earth Recordings commissioned four artists to pick a species of bird and write a track around it. Four tracks of peaceful and gently evocative music from Edwyn Collins...view item »

Anne Briggs
The Time Has Come

The Time Has Come by Anne Briggs is apparently Ryley Walker's favourite ever record. Deeply affecting and sweetly melodic, Briggs' writing was steeped in the ages-old tradition of story telling. The music may mutate but these are tales from the human heart. Some of her earliest works are on this record, her crystal-clea...view item »

Compton & Batteau
In California

Compton & Batteau recorded their one and only album, In California in 1971, in California. It’s a classic-feeling suite of laid-back West Coast rock that instantly recalls a certain kind of troubador. The duo quickly vanished into obscurity, but In California has stuck around being quietly wonderful e...view item »

Bert Jansch
Living In The Shadows Part 2: On The Edge Of A Dream

Part two of the Living In The Shadows series, sub-titled On The Edge Of A Dream, contains the final recordings of Bert Jansch. This is everything the folk legend recorded in the 2000’s: the three albums Crimson Moon, Edge Of A Dream and The Black Swan, plus an extra disc of unre...view item »

Bert Jansch with Loren Auerbach
Colours Are Fading Fast

Awww this is so lovely. A collaboration between sweet voiced folkie Loren Auerbach and soon-to-be-husband folk guitar tangler Bert Jansch. The sweet sounds will remind listeners of the likes of Virginia Astley and Vashti Bunyan. Remastered from the original tapes, including a third disc of previously unheard material....view item »

Shirley Inspired

This right here is a true motherload: British folk legend Shirley Collins is rightly loved by all and sundry musicians, and Earth Records have pulled together an absolute ton of amazing artists to perform her music. Literally too many to list, but if you like folk-inspired music then your favourites will be here. Vinyl box-set a...view item »

Bert Jansch
Living In The Shadows

Living In The Shadows is a beautiful archival treat of a release, containing Bert Jansch’s three albums of the 1990’s: Toy Balloon, When The Circus Comes To Town and The Ornamen...view item »

Bert Jansch
Live In Australia

Bert Jansch, playing Live In Australia, in a cafe in 1998. This is a highly direct set, being mostly comprised only of Bert and his guitar, singing familiar favourite songs and newer lat-90’s material alike. The audio has been carefully remastered for this release, which is available on CD or LP, ...view item »

The Irony Of Fate (Original Score)

The remastered original score from the 1976 Soviet romantic comedy film, The Irony Of Fate. Award-winning Soviet composer Mikael Tariverdiev is the musical visionary behind these 17 tracks of beautiful orchestration, with swelling strings punctuated by delicate pianos and classical guitars. Releas...view item »

Bert Jansch
From The Outside

Bert Jansch has always been a reliable prospect, whether solo or in Pentangle. From The Outside, which features nothing but the good man’s voice, guitar and banjo, was first released in 1985 in a small edition on a Belgian label; what’s more, its reissue history has featured a variety of tra...view item »

Bert Jansch

Bert Jansch records are always worth hearing, and this 1973 album is certainly no exception. Moonshine finds Jansch in a particularly traditional mode, and includes the likes of Ralph McTell as guests. This reissue is especially worth it for the amazing design of this release: the circu...view item »

Steve Warner
Steve Warner

Is there no end to the supply of under-appreciated 1970’s private-pressed singer-songwriters waiting to be rediscovered and reissued? Seemingly not. Although when the quality remains so high, it is hard to complain. Steve Warner’s 1979 debut (and only) album is sweet and melodic whilst also being strange around the e...view item »

Film Music

Not so well-known outside of his native Russia, Mikael Tariverdiev may experience a revival in the West as a result of this comprehensive compilation of his soundtrack work for many classic Soviet films. Triple LP box-set with a whole 51 tracks, supported by a 24-page booklet of exclusive and intimate materials. 1000 copies only...view item »

Trader Horne
Morning Way

Morning Way, the only album ever made by Trader Horne, is considered a major (and majorly unappreciated) example of 1970’s British psychedelic folk. First of all, just look at that cover art! The music is similarly colourful, varied, and wonderfully odd. Reissued by Earth Recordings on CD or red coloured vinyl....view item »

Bert Jansch
Live At The 12 Bar

Live At The 12 Bar finds Bert Jansch in fine form, recorded back in 1995 at a small London club. After a lengthy career (including as a founding member of Pentangle), Jansch is, quite rightly, a highly respected artist, and this collection gives a fifteen-track insight into his position...view item »

Howard Eynon
So What If I'm Standing In Apricot Jam

Explaining a record called 'So What If I'm Standing In Apricot Jam' is a totally futile exercise, and you probably wouldn't believe me if I told you Howard Enyon's brand of acid folk is often sinister and eerie, as if a twee/psych icon had travelled into the future and taken on the neo-folk pagans of today. Really, though, he recalls acts such a...view item »

Jackson C. Frank
Jackson C. Frank

Earth Records brings us this reissue of a lost folk gem, originally released back in 1965 this album by Jackson C Frank was produced by none other than Paul Simon after he saw Frank playing in an old folk club. It’s the sound of a real folk legend but with lots of soul and blues to give an extra little twis...view item »
