    the Tapestry of Delights:
    Often compared with The Incredible String Band, with whom they share the opportunism and their wilful approach to folk-music, this band managed to deliver two completely unique albums in a style of their own. The attitude towards making music is an altogether spontaneous one, which makes for both hilarious mistakes (not mixed away in the control-room, of course) and highly inventive half-improvised parts. Most readers will at least be acquainted with Strangely Strange But Oddly Normal from the first album, as this cut was included on the much cherished sampler Nice Enough To Eat from 1968, a track with an eerie beauty, which never managed to get clear outlines. More of the same, hardly rock music, but very psychedelic nonetheless, is featured on Kip. The lyrics are partly very wise, partly utter nonsense. (Which is which, is up to you). Unexpected twists and turns are scattered across almost all songs. The music is acoustic throughout, almost amateurish, but continuously charming. The second album gives more of the same, but this time augmented with sharpness and a 'rock' feel, due to the powerful drumming of Mattacks (who sometimes can hardly keep order among the players) and incisive guitar soloing by the very young Gary Moore. Outstanding track is the 8 minute 34 seconds Sign On My Mind, with great melodies which are delivered with confidence. Original pressings of this album come on the Vertigo swirl label in an elaborate gatefold sleeve. Counterfeits both with and without the gimmix sleeve are known to exist. Definitely worth a try, if you like psych which is close to nature and 'elevates' you without using any technical equipment to reach this aim.

    Terry and Gay Woods were in Dr. Strangely Strange between April 1970 until they split in May 1971.
    Gary Moore, of course, later achieved greater fame with Skid Row, Colosseum II and Thin Lizzy, before pursuing a solo career. Dave Mattacks joined Fairport Convention, Irvine had earlier played with Sweeney's Men. A further compilation appearance was Summer Breeze on Vertigo Annual 1970.In 1997 the band reformed for a third album Alternative Medecine (Big Beat WIKCD ) 1997. ~ (Marcel Koopman / Vernon Joynson / Jim Mc Master)
