This band features a female singer with a bell-clear voice similar to Denny's' and the band behind her mines an organic, English folk aesthetic.
But On The Shore features much stronger backbeats--there in none of Fairports jazz vibe-heavier guitar, and some keyboard work.Trees leaves nothing to be desired. - Absolutely solid overlooked progressive era music. Impressive. Get it!
I had no previous exposure to this group and bought it on the strength of the few 30 second snippets available courtesy of Amazon. I have over 6000 vinly LPs and uncountable CDs, but this is the most rewarding item I've bought in years. Seriously.
It's wonderfully melodic with some haunting interplay between instruments and nicely recorded. Some of Celia's vocals are just a bit shaky but enchanting nonetheless. The remixed/reimagined tracks on the second disc are beautifully done, not just padding, and are a welcome additional choice to the finely remastered original. I have never written a recommendation for anything before, but if I had reissued it I would offer a money-back guarantee if the buyer was not completely enraptured. A TRUE LOST TREASURE!

It's a mix of folk and soft pop.
