Pink Floyd and The Incredible String Band.
The Incredible String Band.
This time we finish off the general notes on the back cover of the USA version of the LP:
“Armed with the adulation of Scottish folk fans, successful concert appearances in London, Birmingham and Manchester and the selection of their LP as one of the top 5 folk albums of the year by both the Guardian and the Observer, The Incredible String Band is setting out in 1967 to conquer the English and, with the result of this LP, begin a successful assault upon America.
“What is their music like? As their name suggests, Incredible, or as England’s Melody Maker wrote, “a sound that will astonish and please thousands of people.” The not too distant future should see that number changed to millions.”
American optimism at its best.
Next time, we start on the music on this first Incredible album. Meanwhile, a couple more pictures:
