    Tapestry of Delights:
    Starting as a quartet with Mattacks helping out, the group attributed much of the charm of their first album to the crystal voice of Gaskin, combined with the imaginative arrangements of Cusack and the strangely beautiful melodies of Cockerham. Too often, though, the latter sings his own songs, with a voice that is too strained to convince, preventing this album from becoming a psych-folk classic. Some excellent songs are present, though. The second album augments the sound with cello and mandolin and also gives more room to Gaskin's clarity of voice, but the material is less strong and although the good tracks are almost brilliant, the bad ones offer nothing but irritation. Somehow it all crystallises on the third album, where suddenly a wholeness is reached instead of the fragmentary former efforts. The atmosphere of sadness and despair, which permeated the first two albums as well, now becomes chillingly urgent, while the contribution of Lowther on trumpet works wonders, greatly so on The Furthest Point, a minor classic by itself. Unfortunately this album is very difficult to obtain. All three albums were also issued in Germany on Brain and are a bit less rare than their British counterparts. Definitely worth investigating.
    Barbara Gaskin later appeared with Hatfield and The North and National Health. She then enjoyed a hit as part of a duo with Dave Stewart (who'd also been in those bands) covering Lesley Gore's It's My Party. Dave Mattacks, was in Fairport Convention. ~
