Various Artists - Garden of Delights (2006)




Various Artists - Garden of Delights (2006)

London's hip DJs - in particular those involved with the Big Chill, who admittedly do have a background in fine alternative music with the Cooking Vinyl label - have suddenly discovered folk music and folk rock and this compilation features the work of several seminal artists such as Duncan Browne, the Dransfields, Donovan, Pentangle, Shelagh McDonald, Decameron, Gryphon, Caravan (OK, not folk in the slightest but still good), Davey Graham, Shirley Collins, Fotheringay, Dave Swarbrick and Prelude (with their timeless cover of Neil Young's "After The Goldrush") A good place to start investigating the genre everyone is talking about.

A lovely record, and I enjoy reading your blog, and downloading the out-of-print gems you post.

Unlike the majority of your postings, though, this comp was released in 2006 and is readily available. A lot of work went into the project (compilations are pretty labor-intensive). A couple songs and a buy-link would be more appropriate in my opinion.

Thanks a lot for this, it opens way for a lot of interesting artists in this field. One question: There seem to be a hidden track after Prelude's After The Goldrush - a wonderful track, any idea who this might be?
