Jade - Fly on Strangewings 180 gram vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)
A rare 1970 folk-rock album. Jade were a very popular UK live act in 1970, but they only managed to record one studio album. Fly On Strangewings features a host of guest artists including members of Spencer Davis Group, Pentangle, Colosseum, Jefferson Starship and John Wetton from King Crimson. Fans of early Sandy Denny, Fairport, Trees or Mellow Candle should check this out. This edition includes an insert with unseen photos and liner notes by Richard Allen.
"This is a stunning, highly-celebrated album replete with gorgeous male/female harmonies led by Sandy Denny-ish, silver-throated Marianne Segal, backed by harpsichord, guitar, and rustic violin arranged and played by members of some of the finest UK folk rock luminaries of the era. Hailed during its time, but regrettably mishandled, it's simply essential for all fans of acid folk and folk-rock."
"Marianne Segal sounded more like Sandy Denny than any other British folk-rock singer of the time did, and her songs mixed rock music, more traditional British folk and lyrical elements, and stirring contemporary rock singer-songwriting." - All Music Guide
