Artist: FOREST
Title: BBC Concert
Format: LP
Label: Klimt
Country: France
Price: $23.00
"Recorded in May and October 1972 for BBC Radio 1 by DJ Bob Harris, these sessions may be all that remain of this seminal acid folk bands elusive third album! Featuring songs not heard on either one of their LPs--1969s self-titled debut and 1970s Full Circle, both on Harvest--it is speculated that many of these songs would have appeared on their imminent third album had they not been suddenly dropped from their label (due to low sales and rapidly changing musical tastes). By 1972 Dez Allenby had left the band, leaving brothers Adrian & Martin Welham as the only remaining members, although Dave Panton (viola, sax) and Dave Stubbs (bass) were brought in for their live performances. By this time, particularly on tracks like Everyday Laugh, the Welham brothers were moving more into avant-rock territory and one can only speculate on where they could have gone from here. All songs by Welham & Welham except a version of Ray Charles 1958 hit Leave My Woman Alone." -Klimt.

Artist: FOREST
Title: Forest
Format: CD
Label: Radioactive
Country: UK
Price: $17.00
"New, official reissue (previous version on BGO is long gone). Like their COB reissue, this is a stepped up quality remaster from Radioactive. Originally issued by Harvest in 1969, this is one of the definite debut folk albums of all time." - FE. "As the 1960s progressed, almost every musical genre was affected by the  psychedelic boom - and folk was no exception. Artists such as Bert Jansch, Davy Graham and Donovan had introduced elements of world music into their repertoires by 1965, and in 1966 the Incredible String Bands debut kicked the door wide open for a generation of young musicians to follow. Forest, whose two Harvest albums have long elated listeners and eluded collectors, featured prominently among them, and have become synonymous with so-called acid folk, inspiring - alongside Vashti Bunyan, COB and a handful of others - the current wave of successful underground folk acts. Originally called The Foresters Of Walesby the band abbreviated their name to Forest and were fortunate enough to meet John Peel at a  local gig and he encouraged them to play in London. After a triumphant gig in Notting Hills All Saints Hall at Christmastime 1968, Forest were offered a management deal with Blackhill Enterprises, home to amongst others, Pink Floyd and Roy Harper. It wasnt long before offers of record contracts came their way and the band eventually signed to EMIs nascent Harvest label. This, their debut album was recorded at Abbey Road early in 1969 and featured completely original material, with their strangely-sculptured melodies and partially improvised accompaniment. The playing is often inspired and the albums recording quality excellent.  Mastered at Abbey Road by NickWebb from the original analogue tapes. Featuring full participation from founding band member Martin Welham." - Radioactive.
