Product Description



UK 1971

new  reissue LP:

new LP, 180 gram. pressing, extra heavy sleeve, limited, sealed

Extremely complex progressive folk rock, with unique, literate lyrics that poetically manifest the gnarled emotions of a bitter break up, with acerbic guitar strumming and controlled anger. Mourning Phase have remained shrouded in mystery since 1971. The liner notes tell the stories of the band members after they released this LP.

This demo-LP was discovered in 1992 and later sold for a 4-figure sum to a ¿collector¿. It appeared to be a test pressing, dated 1971. Lyrically interesting, the densely layered acoustic/electric music seems merely to serve as a vehicle for the love/hate relationship of, speculatively, the male and female vocalists. Cynical, misanthropic, (with and occasional cello). It rates highly and rightly so, because the songs are well written, well performed, and goes from somewhat dreamy through to aggressive. Recorded at Eden studios. You can compare the music very close to Mellow Candle, one of the best underground folk albums there is, and this is as good.

"One of the rarest folk-rock artefacts, oo-arr (enough Rambling Syd already- Ed) of the early 70s, a 1971 test pressing (described as the 'ultimate home-made student album') discovered in 1992 and sold for a 4-figure sum to a 'collector'. Densely layered acoustic and electric acid folk with cynical, misanthropic lyrics that effectively document the breakdown of a relationship between its male and female vocalists (no, this isn't a joke!!), this is a 'Rumours' for the folk obscurity lover. Moods range from dreamy to aggressive to just otherworldly, and the sound has been compared to Mellow Candle or Magna Carta at their best. In short, you HAVE to hear this!!
