Editorial Reviews

Their third album and probably the one to own, featuring Robin Williamson's mesmerizing Waltz of the New Moon and Mike Heron's sprawling epic a Very Cellular Song.

Format: Audio CD
Viewed by many die-hard fans as the jewel in the crown of Stringdom, this is THE Incredible String Band album to demonstrate, above all others, just what makes this unique band so wonderful. From the opening dream-like reflections on childhood "Born in a house where the doors shut tight, shadowy fingers on the curtains at night" to the the exquisite dying fall of "Nightfall", this is strange, exotic, mesmerising and mysterious stuff. Oh, and it just happens to be incredibly beautiful as well, for the most part. Memorable highlights abound: Robin's deceptively simple "Witch's Hat" ("sitting on her head like a parrafin stove"), Mike's lush and fascinating "Cellular Song" (amoebas are very small, aren't they?)...thrill to tales of the Emperor of China with his iron footwear, ponder the meaning of "Three is a Green Crown", or just go with the flow and enjoy. This is truly incredible music. With the String Band currently enjoying a much-deserved renaissance, what better time to get to know this (arguably their finest) album. Then check out Wee Tam & the Big Huge, and 5000 Spirits, for proof that this was no flash in the pan.

This is the third album recorded by the Incredible String Band, recorded in late 1967 and released in early 1968, at the height of the psychedelic movement in popular music. Combining instruments and melodies from the far corners of the earth with lyrics unequalled in their day (and rarely since) reflecting on eveything from humankind to the natural world, from love to violence, from ancient mysticism to modern realities, the ISB made music like no one else. It spoke -- and still speaks -- to the heart, the soul, the mind and the body.
The album begins with a trio of Robin Williamson compositions, extremely varied in their presentation, but all tied together by myth. 'Koeeoaddi there' mixes images from Williamson's childhood, including imaginings, songs and games shared with his playmates, with memories of adult neighbors and even a group of soldiers who camped nearby. These variegated visions are pulled together by the chant that becomes the refrain: 'Earth, water, fire and air met together in a garden fair -- put in a basket bound with skin. If you answer this riddle, you'll never begin'. The following song sounds almost like something out of Gilbert & Sullivan (complete with a responsive chorus and much humor), with a jarring difference -- its subject is the minotaur of ancient myth. There's a brutal play on word sounds at the end of one bridge: '...his habits are predictable, agressively reliable, poor bull'. The third track, 'Witch's hat', is quite simply one of Williamson's most beautiful songs. The visions his words invoke are dark and crystalline, fog-shrouded shapes moving in the woods -- the stuff that scares the hell out of kids and grown-ups alike, but beautiful at the same time.
The album's longest composition, Mike Heron's 'A very cellular song' follows.

The music on this album of the late 60's captivates me as much now as it did then - both in its daring, imaginative lyrics and its use of rhythm and melody from innumerable traditions. There is no style that hasn't found expression in these tracks. "Witch's Hat," for example, with its slightly off-pitch hammered dulcimer accompaniment, feels of a Halloween night, rife with mystery. "The Water Song," a medieval prayer, gives its would-be competitor, "Stairway to Heaven," the lie. "Water" shows how to do it right! "The Minotaur's Song" takes on Gilbert and Sullivan with a vengeance, and "Swift As The Wind" paints a bleak portrait of parental neglect. Perhaps the finest song on the album is Williamson's "Waltz of the New Moon." Modal and influenced by Eastern performance technique, this masterpiece in stolid 3/4 time takes the listener on a journey through ancient secrets. Every line is moonlit - every beat resonates with the movement of the earth through the heavens. Simply beautiful! This collection is a must for anyone who truly loves music - and poetry. I'll vote it best "Defies Category" album of all time!

Comparing this via headphones to the Hannibal/Rykodisc CD of yore, I honestly couldn't hear much of a difference. But you do get a 16-page booklet with impressionistic liner notes by Robin Williamson, lyrics, and some rare photographs and concert posters. The music, of course, remains magical; not only one the greatest albums of the '60s but of all time.

From beginning to end, the collective synergy of this CD between words, music and sounds, provides the listener with the ultimate in escape entertainment. This varied collection of songs from the Incredible String Band, evokes senses that stimulate, unlatching the gate of the imagination. And, the best thing is that it's all NATURAL! The song lyrics abound with characters, from the lowly "amoeba" to the mysterious, "unnameable, Namer." Also, word pictures take you from "riding backwards on a giraffe" to "wearing iron shoes with ease." A Very Cellular Song is wondrous, a celebration of lives; Witches Hat is eerie, with veiled hints of strange ceremonies in ancient woods; Koeeoaddi There is happy, wistful, oddly off center; The Minotaur's Song is proud, boastful, stubborn, forging ahead, not willing to change; Waltz Of The New Moon is continuous, revolving, renewing, eternal...I listen to The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter again and again. It's a prized jewel in my CD collection.
