SKU 23-SCD 049
“Mythica were a folk & poetry band from Oxford, formed by Pete Dobson (guitar,vocals), Pete Lynch (violin, guitar, banjo) and Arf Billington (harmonica,vocals).
They recorded several times for the BBC, a demo album at Zella and also demos at George Martin AIR Recorded in the Summer of 1969 and predating COB's debut to which this LP has similarities in tone and compositions. Sleeve notes by the band.
A significant addition to Britain's historic Folk Rock recordings it's one to file alongside COB, Mellow Candle, Dulcimer,ISB, Fairport Convention et al.”

“Mythica made a one-off acetate in 1971 that's worth a fortune but now owned by a collector in Russia. They also recorded for the BBC on two Transcription Discs, but didn't sign to a label. Reminiscent of C.O.B their unissued LP is a significant find for fans of the British Folk Rock Underground of the early seventies. To be filed alongside C.O.B, Dulcimer, Trees, Incredible String Band, Fairport Convention, The Woods Band, Tudor Lodge. Some striking all out Hippie Bohemian colour photos of the band from the time illustrate the cover art, plus a repro of the original acetate sleeve, and sleevenotes by the band. An occasional prediction of the Pogues and Punk-Folk surfaces amid a British Bohemian folk rock frenzy.”
