Originally released in 1972, ‘Bright Phoebus’ combined the incredible song writing of siblings Lal & Mike from folk revival The Watersons group. Moving on from, but not forgetting, their folk roots, the album is a post-psychedelic collection of songs recorded in a ‘loose & anarchic’ fashion in Cecil Sharpe House UK, with a folk-rock super group numbering Richard Thompson, Norma Waterson, Maddy Prior, Martin Carthy & Ashley Hutchings. Since release, the album has become legend, it’s scarcity not hindering generations of music fans falling for its beguiling atmosphere.
This release will be the first time that the album will be widely available and has also been remastered under the supervision of David Suff (Topic/Fledling) & Marry Waterson (daughter of Lal).
The deluxe version of the album contain 12 previously unreleased demos, along with an extended essay by Pete Paphides.
