Product Description

 SPRIGUNS OF TOLGUS-Jack With A Feather-'75 UK psych-folk-NEW LP

Jack With A Feather


Cat Nº: GUESS228


UK psych-folk private press mega-rarity, originally released in 1975.

“Jack With A Feather” was the first vinyl album (after the private cassette only release of “Rowdy Dowdy Day”) by SPRIGUNS OF TOLGUS, just before they shortened their name to SPRIGUNS and signed to Decca, recording two classic progressive folk-rock albums.

Recorded in a cottage in the middle of nowhere, the album offers mostly traditional songs with charming homemade atmosphere, psychedelic touches, male / female vocals (by MANDY MORTON), acoustic/electric guitars, mandolin, dulcimer, fiddle… One of the tracks, “Seamus The Showman”, originally written by Tim Hart of Steeleye Span (future Spriguns producer), landed the band a deal with Decca Records.

*First ever official vinyl reissue
*Original artwork
*Sourced from the original master tapes
*Insert with liner notes by Mandy Morton and photos
*OBI strip

“Another lovely album of restrained electric folk”
– Richard Falk (Galactic Ramble)
