STRANGE FOLK

STRANGE FOLK

I’d hereby like to honour
you for your more than
excellent articles on
Strange Folk in your April
2005 issue, and part
2 in your recent August
2009 issue! This is the
sort of stuff we dedicated
collectors of UK vinyl
records love to indulge in! The writer, Richard Morton
Jack. is the co- author of the most important book
ever written (with all respect to Vernon Joynson’s
Tapestry Of Delights) about the UK music scene in
the 60s and 70s (that’s when it all happened) -
namely Galactic Ramble.

Regarding the Strange Folk articles, I only have
two slight comments of disagreement. I happen to
find Trees’ The Garden Of Jayne Delawney an even
better acid-folk album than their On The Shore
album included in the article! Secondly, I see that
Mark Fry: Dreaming With Alice (IT ZLST 70006, Italy
Only, 1972) has been given the same value now as
in 2005, namely £750. This fantastic little record
(above) must be one of the world’s rarest and most
sought after albums; I recently saw one being sold
on eBay for about £2500.
