Sourdeline - La Reine Blanche
"Formed in 1972 in Northern France, Sourdeline has remained a hidden treasure for decades. With a strong Pentangle influence in their works, they released a couple of astounding albums during the next few years, acquiring a wonderful baroque folk sound based on some traditional French folk songs in addition to many originals, with the use of a large number of traditional instruments. Their first disc La Reine Blanche is from 1976 and is considered a classic of continental European '70s folk -- certainly an album that will please anyone into folk-prog. This is the first-ever, deluxe reissue of this record and it has been completely remastered. Includes a fantastic booklet with unseen photos and liners by Sourdeline fan Margaret Ayre of Fern Knight, as well as Sourdeline's story written by the band's leader Jean-Pierre Danielsen."
