Penguin Eggs is the fifth and final studio album by English folk musician and singer Nic Jones, released by Topic Records in 1980. After establishing himself as a sought after figure on the British folk revival scene, Penguin Eggs was recorded with producer Tony Engle and consists of traditional folk songs arranged by Jones. Exemplified throughout the album is Jones' intricate acoustic guitar playing style, characterised by a distinctive, percussive plucking style and usage of open tunings. He also plays fiddle on one song, while he is joined on many tracks by Tony Hall on melodeon and Bridget Danby on recorder.

Nine years on from the widely-acclaimed Iron Stone recording, Scottish singer-songwriter, harpist and guitarist Robin Williamson returns with a new album of self-penned pieces – thoughtful and touching meditations on love, destiny, the natural world, roads travelled, and the daily pleasures of being alive today. The album finds Williamson in fine voice and in best creative form on his diverse instruments, drawing inspiration also from the ingenious improvisational input of violist Mat Maneri (further developing the association initiated on Skirting The River Road ) and percussionist Ches Smith (last heard on ECM with Tim Berne’s Snakeoil band). Trusting In The Rising Light was recorded in Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales, in January 2014.

Clannad (derived from the word clan meaning ‘family’ in Gaelic) was formed in 1970 by siblings Moya, Ciarán and Pól Brennan and their uncles Noel and Pádraig Duggan (who sadly passed away in 2016), and for a short time later became a six-piece with the addition of Enya Brennan who then went on to have her own successful solo career. The multi-award winning band have, without doubt, done more than any other group to take Irish music and the Irish language to a worldwide audience. Fusing elements of traditional Irish music and more contemporary folk, new age and rock they have created a beautifully unique and ethereal sound which combines haunting melodies and mesmerising vocals to transcend the sands of time whilst appealing to a worldwide audience of all ages.

With their unique sound of blazing bagpipes, mighty drums and the power of a rock band, Celtica Pipes Rock is one of the most popular bands playing Celtic music in Germany. 'Legends and Visions' combines the traditional sound of the bagpipes with rock music as the band plays a set of their own compositions. Three cover songs complete the album: a U2 medley, a heavy rocking version of "Whiskey in the Jar" and a live version of "Don't Stop Believing", recorded during a USA tour.

Tabor teams up with one of Britain's leading folk-rock outfits, the Oyster Band, with fairly successful results, although it won't be the favorite of June's most traditionally-minded fans. She takes all the lead vocals on these fully electrified arrangements. The material is certainly varied, including both traditional numbers and covers of contemporary folk and rock tunes by Richard Thompson, Si Kahn, the Pogues, Billy Bragg, and the Velvet Underground.

In the liner notes to these carefully packaged reissues, all four of the Incredible String Band principals– co-founder Clive Palmer, core duo Mike Heron and Robin Williamson, and Elektra records executive Joe Boyd– offer their insights in separate essays. Three of them mention the smell of patchouli. Such were the times, certainly, but the ISB are loved equally by avant-garde musicians, psychedelia enthusiasts, and those slightly dweeby young gentlemen who hang around music shops on college campuses. The reissue of their first four albums probably put to rest any notion that the ISB were a properly great band, releasing just one true classic, but they were rarely anything less than brave, inspired, and profoundly weird.

"Ancient Highway" was nine minutes long and contained the words "praying to my higher self/Don't let me down". It is said to be the one song on the album where he comes closest to following his muse.

One of the great duos of all time, Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbrick joined up in early spring 1966 as a performing unit and were an immediate hit becoming, overnight, the most popular group in the burgeoning folk club scene in Britain. Martin was already the most important solo singer/guitarist on the folk scene with two successful albums for Fontana (with Dave joining him on several tracks). Dave was causing a sensation with his virtuoso fiddle playing, reconciling traditional instrumental styles with modern ideas and technique. Released in 1967, this was Martin's third album and it presented a fully integrated duo sound with Dave Swarbrick. As they grew in confidence and dexterity, Martin & Dave tested themselves with tricky rhythms and challenging songs, and the title track electrified the folk scene with its audacious syncopation. The album was most carefully planned and executed and remains an outstanding achievement.
