Artist: BRIGGS, ANNE
Title: Four Songs
Format: 7"
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $13.00
"Anne Briggs sang three songs during the launch episode of Folk-Song Cellar, broadcast on Saturday August 13th, 1966. When Fledgling approached Anne with the tentative proposal to release these songs, she was quick to respond: "Three songs on an EP is awkward. If you needed another song, there might be something recorded from a Nottingham folk club around that time". Annes oldest friends recorded some songs in their local folk club and carefully preserved the recordings for decades. Al Atkinson offers some rare photographs for the sleeve. Rare, simple, unadorned and intimate performances make their first appearance on record here." - Fledgling.

Those recorded with Dolly Collins are especially treasured.

Artist: COPPER, BOB AND RON
Title: Traditional Songs from Rottingdean
Format: LP
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $28.00
"In 1963 The English Folk Dance and Song Society released an LP of unaccompanied singing that has since had a tremendous influence on the folk song revivals of Britain, Ireland, and The United States. The album collected together a number of recordings of Bob and Ron Copper of Rottingdean in Sussex, recordings made by the renowned folksong collector Peter Kennedy during the late 1950s. The Copper family can trace their roots in traditional song back at least 200 years. Their rare southern English harmony is presented at its most outstanding in these classic performances from the 1950s and early 60s. To celebrate the 2015 centenary of Bob Coppers birth, Fledgling Records present the first reissue of this seminal album. The package recreates all the original artwork and Bob Coppers complete sleevenotes (as well as the original shortened version of the essay)." - Fledgling.

Artist: FOTHERINGAY
Title: 2
Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"This is what would have been -- and now IS -- the second release for UK folk-rock legends Fotheringay, including all members Sandy Denny, Pat Donaldson, Trevor Lucas, Gerry Conway, and Jerry Donahue. These are the original recordings from 1970. Fotheringay remain one of the great might-have-beens of British music. They lasted less than a year, and released just one album, but their disappearance robbed the early 70s scene of a group of musicians capable of taking folk-rock to new heights of subtlety and musicianship. Now, the nine songs on that debut album; assumed for almost four decades to be their sole testament, are joined by the eleven that would have constituted a follow-up. Sadly, they broke up during the recording sessions for their second album. Incredibly, all the tapes survived in various record company archives. Thirty-eight years later, the surviving members of the group have mixed all the material to finally complete this remarkable album. When originally released, the debut album went straight into the Top Twenty in both Melody Maker and NME, and is now an acknowledged classic recording of British folk-rock. It is very, very rare that musicians get the chance to complete a project begun 38 years earlier. The second Fotheringay album has been eagerly awaited by all fans of Sandy Denny, British folk-rock, and by pretty much everyone in general." - Fledgling

Artist: FOTHERINGAY
Title: Fotheringay
Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $15.50
"New reissue of one of the highest regarded British folk-rock albums, featuring Sandy Denny. Originally issued by Island in 1970 (previous Hannibal CD long o/p). With additional artwork and bonus tracks." - FE. "Fotheringays beautiful debut album was recorded in 1970, and has long been regarded as one of the greatest achievements of British folk-rock. Sandy Denny, Trevor Lucas, Jerry Donahue, Pat Donaldson and Gerry Conway created a magical ensemble sound and one of the finest albums of Sandys career. It has been out of print for sometime. For this carefully remastered edition Fledgling have restored all of the original artwork and added four bonus tracks -- performances recorded at the 1970 Rotterdam Festival. Remastering approved by original producer Joe Boyd." - Fledgling.

Artist: GRAHAM, DAVY
Title: Folk Blues & Beyond
Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
Folk, Blues & Beyond was first released on Decca Records in 1965, and is one of the most important recordings from the 1960s folk revival. "UK guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and serviceable-to-perfunctory vocalist. A seminal guitar influence, setting standards for succeeding generations. Graham was the first guitarist to emerge from Britain whose work combined stylistic elements from Julian Bream, Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Ali Akbar Khan, Leadbelly, Joe Pass, Segovia and others too numerous to name. John Martyn described him as his absolute hero in a Guitar Player interview 75. Of Scottish and Guyanese parents, he came to personify musical adventure, his adoption of non-standard guitar tunings, most notably D-A- D-G-A-D, arguably his most important legacy. His uniqueness became, directly or indirectly, a model for Martin Carthy, Bert Jansch, Wizz Jones and later musicians as diverse as Martin Simpson and J]aso[rgen W. Lang." -- Music Web Encyclopedia " Covers of traditional folk standards like "Black Is the Colour of My True Loves Hair" and "Seven Gypsies" combine with interpretations of compositions by Bob Dylan ("Dont Think Twice, Its Alright"), Willie Dixon ("My Babe"), Charles Mingus ("Better Git in Your Soul"), and Reverend Gary Davis ("Cocaine") for an eclecticism of repertoire that wasnt matched by many musicians of any sort in the mid-60s. --Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide. "This release has been carefully remastered, with restored original artwork in the slipcased edition. Also added are five very rare bonus tracks, new sleeve-notes and previously unpublished photographs." - FE.

Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $15.50
"Fledgling Records are very proud to announce the release of this classic album on CD. First released in 1968, Large As Life And Twice As Natural is a tremendous acoustic-folk-blues-jazz masterpiece. As always with Davy Graham the music seems to defy categorization. Perhaps the simplest description would be great. On Large As Life And Twice As Natural Davy is joined by the legendary Harold McNair on flute, Dick Heckstall-Smith on saxophone, Jon Hiseman on drums (both from Colloseum) and Danny Thompson (from Pentangle) on double bass. For this carefully remastered edition Fledgling have restored all the elements of the original artwork and added several previously unpublished photographs. Not previously available on compact disc.

Artist: HENDERSON WITH JOHN RENBOURN, DORRIS
Title: Watch the Stars
Format: CD
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $15.50
"First released in 1967, Watch The Stars is a remarkable long-lost gem from the mid-sixties British folk revival. A beautiful collection of folk, blues and haikus, the album melds a folk-boom topicality with a fine beat sensibility; uniting the Afro-American West Coast with suburban London. Long out-of-print, the record is an early milestone in the careers of Dorris Henderson and John Renbourn. On Watch The Stars Dorris and John are joined by the classical guitarist Tim Walker and Danny Thompson (from Pentangle) on double bass. Contains two songs written by Anne Briggs and an early cover of Arthur Lees Message To Pretty. For this carefully remastered edition Fledgling have restored all the elements of the original artwork and added several previously unpublished photographs. Not previously available on compact disc. Deluxe slipcased packaging." - Fledgling.

Artist: MCGREGORS BROTHERHOOD OF BREATH, CHRIS
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $35.00
"Reissued by Fledgling in 2007, this is a classic title from 1971 by Chris McGregors magnificent big band -- Brotherhood Of Breath. Arguably one of the most influential albums to emerge from the London jazz scene of the early 1970s, the Brotherhood of Breath was an exuberant big-band created by South African-born pianist and composer, Chris McGregor. In South Africa, McGregor had formed the racially mixed Blue Notes in the early 1960s. By 1964, finding it very difficult to work at home, they left for Europe, finally settling in London in 1966. The Blue Notes -- Chris McGregor, Dudu Pukwana, Mongezi Feza, Johnny Dyani and Louis Moholo -- made a huge impact on Londons jazz scene and befriended many in Londons emerging avant-garde jazz community. The Brotherhood Of Breath was essentially the expatriate Blue Notes augmented by a large number of their friends from the British jazz community. The ensemble played an energetic mixture of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and Sun Ra, but retained a unique feel due to the South African influences and the intelligent arrangements. McGregor dreamed of keeping the band together "not as an institution, but as a community." Unfortunately, the economics of touring with such a large ensemble made that impossible. The group with a varying line-up continued to perform and record sporadically until McGregors untimely death in May 1990." - Fledgling.

Artist: WATERSON, LAL
Title: Teach Me to Be a Summers Morning: A Portrait of Lal Waterson
Format: CD/Book
Label: Fledgling
Country: UK
Price: $41.00
"Fledgling Books in association with Topic Records present Teach Me to Be a Summers Morning, a portrait of the late Lal Waterson through a collection of her writings, drawings, paintings, stained glass, and a 15-track CD of very rare home demos. Known primarily as a singer and songwriter, Lal Waterson is shown, through this beautiful new book, to be much more: a versatile and vibrant artist. The 15 songs on the CD confirm her stature as a songwriter of rare imagination, depth, and rich beauty; combine this ability with the many drawings, paintings, thoughts and poems illustrated in the book and a clearer picture emerges of Lals individual, tender, intense, complex, but ultimately very human talents. Teach Me to Be a Summers Morning is curated by Lals daughter Marry Waterson and offers a unique, intimate portrait of Lal, through a wonderful selection of her work, from a life lived making sense of the world through music, words, and pictures. 72-page hardback book with CD -- which features tracks from two reels of demo tapes from 1971 of songs written for her debut recording Bright Phoebus -- some never previously released)." -Fledgling.
