Mike and Lal Waterson - Bright Phoebus
©1972 Leading Note/Bee Bee Music
320 kbps Vinyl rip
In 1972, Mike and Lal Waterson (from the Watersons) joined forces to record an album for the Trailer label, Bright Phoebus, which is most unlike anything else they ever did, as it features self-penned songs (of which there are none on any of their other albums) as well as an all-star backing band. Joining Mike and Lal are folk-fusion luminaries such as Ashley Hutchings, Maddy Prior and Tim Hart of Steeleye Span, Richard Thompson, and Dave Mattacks of Fairport Convention, as well as traditionalist Martin Carthy. The album has remained out of print since 1985.
