The fouth Magna Carta studio album, which, was strangely written and recorded whilst the chief song writer was outside his native Yorkshire. The band was enjoying strong support both at live concerts (albeit not always in England) and in the press and were that time one of Vertigo’s biggest acts.
The band at this time consisted of Chris Simpson, Glen Stuart and Stan Gordon. Between them they captured the moment that English folk music married gentle progressive.
When this album was first released it sales were only slow and it is only throughout the years that the momentum has appeared to propel it into the realms of a gold record.
This record does not have its greatest sales in its native land ………instead it’s gross comes from places like Holland , South Africa and Spain.
However such a diverse path cannot dent the metal of a true classic ad it stands today as a monument to the birth of progressive folk music
