barcode: 646315 714920
Adored by the New-Folk elite, this short lived, but extremely influential folk-rock outfit only last about a year and a half, but the music has stood the test of time. Fronted by former Fairport Convention singer Iain Matthews, Plainsong found him and his muse continuing to explore the British strain of folk rock pioneered by his former band while looking toward the West Coast country-rock of Gene Clark and Gram Parsons, a path he would follow more during his solo career. A huge influence on everyone from Devendra Banhart and Vetiver to Appendix Out and Four Tet. This 40 track 2CD set includes the only official album,
In Search of Amelia Earhart (never available on CD in the US), the unreleased second album, plus various live tracks.
