(Buying the albums sampled on “Picnic”).
The only CD version I have of “Anthems in Eden” is the expanded one; I do not know if there ever was a straight clone as there was for “Love, Death & the Lady”.
The bonus tracks are:
9 – “Fare Thee Well My Dearest Dear”;
10 – “C’est la Fin/Pour Mon Cuer”;
11 – “Bonny Kate”;
12 – “Adieu to all Judges and Juries”;
13 – “Edi Beo Thu Hevene Quene”; and
14 – Black Joker/Black, White, Yellow & Green”.
Track 9 is a lovely song with the ancient instruments, very much like the stuff on the LP. Track 10 is in 12th century French with just a viele to accompany it, and again a joy to listen to. Track 11 is conventionally accompanied, and 12 is pure electric folk. Track 13 is in Middle English (like Chaucer), a “13th Century English Gymel in praise of the Virgin Mary”, as per the notes. It is another ancient instruments one. The final track is a splendid Morris romp, complete with dancing courtesy of The Albion Morris Men. This is the “Black Joker” bit, which the notes tell us is the Bledlington Slick Dance.
All very good indeed!
