Appearing David Bowie!
Firm power chords and sweeping acoustic strums break open Steeleye Span's sixth offering, and 'Thomas the Rhymer' wears an ideal balance of classic rock simplicity, seafaring folk, and pop appeal.

The same Steeleye Span lineup that produced their best album up to that point, "Below the Salt", was back for another run, even bolder and more in-your-face.
As with its predecessor, filler is kept to a minimum, with the weakest parts continuing to be those that are subject to least amplification and rearrangement, such as "The Ups and Downs", in which this lineup proves it cannot handle the silly singalong as well as its progenitors, even if it is in every other way superior. Instrumentals were rarely their forte, and this trend continues with the thankfully short "Robbery with Violins".

This is the great Steeleye Span's fourth studio album and in addition to furthering their lovely communion of traditional British folk and blustery hard blues, it was the first release without founder/bassist Ashley Hutchings.

Steeleye Span's third album "Ten Man Mop Or Mr. Reservoir Butler Rides Again" from 1971 is the only seventies album by this group I do not have in my collection. Here contribute Maddy Prior(vocals, spoons, tabor), Tim Hart (organ, dulcimer, banjo, guitar, mandolin, vocals), Peter Knight (fiddle, mandolin, violin, tympani, tenor banjo, keyboard, vocals), Martin Carthy (organ, guitar, vocals) and Ashley Hutchings (bass). They had no drummer and that is something I like with early Steeleye Span.

There is something about the music on Malicorne's album `Le Bestiaire' (roughly translated to `The Animals') that transports me to another space and time. Something of an other-wordly quality that I'm even sometimes reminded of fellow French band Magma, who, lets face it, are pretty much a jazzy alien cult disguised as a progressive band!

L´extraordinaire tour de France d´Adelard Rousseau is another critically acclaimed album from Malicorne. It's regarded as their best album next to Almanach and with the more extensive use of drums, synths and folksy time signatures; it might be an attractive album for folk prog heads (if there exists such a being).

A French cross between GRYPHON and STEELEYE SPAN. The songs are mostly old French traditional songs. The head of Malicorne is singer-guitarist-composer Gabriel Yacoub, other four fellows handle a folkish set of instruments (e.g. flutes, krumhorn, clockenspiel, organ, violin, cello, mandolin and percussion plus the usual rock instruments) and each one sings. This feature made me think of also GENTLE GIANT here and there. So even if this is filed under traditional music and not rock, there is a strong sense of Prog Folk. A knowledge of French would naturally ease the enjoyment…

Malicorne is my favourite folk collective and Almanach is their best album. It is a concept album from 1976 where each of the 12 songs represents a month of the year. Hence 'Almanach' which means calendar in English. Track 13 was not on the original album..

On their second album, things start coming together for Malicorne. It's still a folksy album but the quality is high throughout and there are some moments of astonishing beauty. As to the whole progressive debate, Malicorne is decidedly no rock but progressive yes, at least in my book. They helped redefine folk music from something stuffy and grey into something modern and fresh.

This band plays very traditional folk music, and rock elements appear only in occasional amplified bass and guitar lines. The drums are neither played in rock style, but they are merely simple bass drums and percussions beating the rhythm.

Gabriel Yacoub began his musical career as a guitarist and backing vocalist for Alan Stivell before forming his own band Malicorne. While the band was still at their peak Yacoub released his first solo album, a career he would take up in earnest after leaving the band.

Gabriel Yacoub, for all that he has done as a solo artist, is still best known and remembered for his pioneering work with the group malicorne, who played electric folk music from france. but before malicorne, yacoub and his wife marie had already set out the beginnings of french folk-rock on their debut recording, pierre de grenoble, which is now available on cd

This is a 'nostalgia trip' for me, since the band was founded in the second half of the Seventies I have seen fellow Dutchmen Flairck at least 10 times during the tours of the albums Variaties Op Een Dame (1978), Gevecht Met De Engel (1980) and Circus (1981), mainly in the wonderful venue Diligensia in my hometown The Hague. Every concert was a captivating and adventurous musical journey with virtuosic skills on a wide range of instruments and .. some fine Dutch humor (the Belgians can also enjoy it).

An excellent acoustic Dutch guitarist
Harry Sacksioni (born 23 October 1950 in Amsterdam) is a composer and guitar virtuoso of Dutch origin. The peak of his fame was during the 1970s to 1990s. Famous works of this period include Meta Sequoia, Vensters and Elixer, along with re-arrangements of existing pieces, such as Anji (Davy Graham), Scarborough Fair (arr. Paul Simon) and I Wish (Stevie Wonder). Sacksioni's work is mainly instrumental, although some tracks during the 1980s provided guitar accompaniments to vocals provided by himself and Raymond van het Groenewoud.

On several occasions I have spoken of the important role of radio in my knowledge of music: Groups or soloist are lost in the distance and the little diffusion. This case was plotted by many artists who I have found are outstanding, surpassing popular artists.
