Bonny Brambles

This, my end of 2018 compilation, is late 60s/early 70s British folk and pastoral pop (there is also at least one song by an Irish artist). This is a highly idiosyncratic selection, based on a tremendous amount of listening, much inspired by Rob Young’s wonderful book Electric Eden.
