Trees
The Garden Of Jane Delawney

'The Garden of Jane Delawney' is the debut album from British psych/folk collective Trees which was originally released in 1970. The band were known for an expansive take on pastoral folk that wasn't afraid to wig out here and there. This standalone vinyl re-issue comes after a successful and much praised 50th Anniversary box set of all their recordings.

Trees
On The Shore

'On The Shore' was the second album from British acid folk collective Trees. The band were expert at blending gentle pastoral folk with a more expansive form of psychedelia. 'On The Shore' is a darker, more dense affair than their debut and taps into the heart of folk-rock particularly on their version of the folk classic 'Sally Free and Easy'.

Bert Jansch
Avocet (Expanded Anniversary Edition)

A luxury re-issue of what some regard to be Bert Jansch's best work. Avocet was initially released in 1979 and is a gorgeous instrumental album inspired by British birds. It shifts his brilliant, twisting guitar playing away from traditional folk and more towards a kind of proto neo-classical sound. This 40th anniversary edition comes with bonus tracks and writings by collaborator Danny Thompson. 

Bert Jansch
Crimson Moon

Originally released in 2000, Crimson Moon was one of the most acclaimed latter-day works from Scottish folk legend Bert Jansch. Featuring contributions from guest musicians like Johnny Marr and Bernard Butler, their soft electric licks adding steel to Jansch's trademark finger-picking, the album now gets a 20th anniversary re-issue on vinyl courtesy of Fire Records. 

Trees
Trees (50th Anniversary Edition)

Some classic psych-folk here that has existed largely under the radar since the late ‘60s. Trees released two albums in their lifetime - The Garden of Jane Delanwey in 1969 and On The Shore in 1971. They are being reissued as one box set, Trees (50th Anniversary Edition), and include two discs of BBC sessions, outtakes and alternate mixes. Includes book with new liner notes by founding member David Costa and folk-loving comedian Stewart Lee.

Mikael Tariverdiev
Visions in Black & White

Mikael Tariverdiev was a Russian film score composer known for his brilliant improvisations. Visions in Black & White is a compilation of his jazz work and improvised themes originally composed for ‘60s and ‘70 movies. This album serves as an introduction to one of the lesser known greats.

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 extra three tracks to the original tracklist: hooray!

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 on the B-side, a sparse demo of the same track, for comparison. 7” single on Earth Recordings, limited to 2000 copies.

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 reissue edition adds six bonus tracks. From Earth Recordings.

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 & Carwyn Ellis, Modern Studies, Alasdair Roberts, and Trembling Bells.

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 can get it on a wonderful Christmas present-ready 'shop window' edition vinyl or book back CD with all your favourite slightly hip people talking about the album in an accompanying book. Wake up, and look at this thing that I bring! 

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 spy working undercover in Nazi Germany, and needed a score to match its weight and drama. Tariverdiev succeeded.  

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 'Bert & John' -- so Part 1 starts, logically enough, at the very beginning. These four records were recorded in the space of just 2 years, and amazingly enough were of the highest quality. 

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 along with a bonus brace of four additional tracks. CD and LP edition by Earth Recordings.

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 The Words In Between.

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 reflects the rigidity of Victorian Britain. 

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 Thompson and drummer Terry Cox are the most regular rhythm section used on these recordings and there are guest appearances from Mary Hopkin, Tony Visconti and Dave Mattacks. Many guitarists from Jimmy Page to Neil Young and Johnny Marr to Graham Coxon hold Bert Jansch in high regard.

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, some of the fruits of which are included on this soundtrack. Also here is music from collaborators Michael J York and Ossian Brown, an unearthed home recording of Shirley’s late sister Dolly, and a previously unreleased 1958 BBC session. Available on vinyl, or on CD with a DVD of the film itself.

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. Anthology: Part One now transplants the first disc of that compilation to vinyl: the first time on the medium for many of these rare tracks. Limited to 1000 linen-sleeved copies on Earth Recordings.

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 release, which showcases Tariverdiev’s talent for building grand cinematic gestures out of improvised components. CD and double LP reissue editions.

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 ever since. Now reissued by Earth Recordings!

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 unreleased material. Presented in equally beautiful 4CD and 4LP editions, each packed with an informative book.

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 all gone, but the triple CD version is still around!

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 Ornament Tree. Plus! An additional disc of additional materials from Jansch’s personal archives, much of it previously unheard. 4CD or 4LP editions available, both in attractive book-back packaging.

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, both with liner notes by Colin Harper. On Earth Recordings.

Tariverdiev
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. Released as Vinyl LP on Earth Recordings.

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 tracklistings. This Earth Recordings release gathers all tracks from all tracklistings, and remastered them too.

Bert Jansch
Moonshine

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 circular sleeve artwork has been transferred to the record itself as a picture disc!

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 edges. Reissue on Earth Recordings.

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.

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 in the folk tradition. First time on vinyl, on Earth Records.

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 as Syd Barret, Nick Drake in his 'Five Leaves Left' era and Al Stewart back when he was a bona fide folkie. Lots of acoustic guitars, spontaneously exuberant choruses and frenetic drumming abound.
