Lal and Mike Watersons 1972 folk-noir masterpiece Bright Phoebus has long been recognised as one of British musics legendary lost records. Following the parting of ways of The Watersons and freed from the strictures of folk orthodoxy, Lal and Mike Watersons love of words allowed them to serve the needs of their songs in ways that werent possible when singing already written songs.
Featuring performances from Lal, Mike and Norma Waterson, Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson, Ashley Hutchings, Dave Mattacks, Tim Hart and Maddy Prior, amongst others, the album is now recognised as a forward-thinking benchmark for the genre.
This will be the first time since its release that the album will be widely available. Under the supervision of David Suff (Topic/Fledgling) and Marry Waterson (daughter of Lal), the album has been remastered from the original tapes.
