LP, Sunbeam Records.
RSD 2018 release. Sunbeam Records present a reissue of Michael Raven and Joan Mills 's Death And The Lady , originally released in 1974. One of the rarest of all '70s British folk albums, this darkly beautiful record has never been available on vinyl since the first pressing of just 250 copies was pressed in 1972. It's presented here together with a booklet telling the story behind the album, with rare photos. Digitally remastered. Includes large-format four-page booklet with comprehensive notes and rare photos; 180 gram vinyl; Edition of 1500.
" Although clearly rooted in trad, the free-spirited '70s inspired them to explore and experiment, which here takes the form of a stunning combination of rural folk ballads, Raven's extraordinary classical-flavoured guitar-picking, and Mills' yearning yet precise vocals.
