Long awaited reissue of the classic first album by legendary Prog-folkies Heron, from Berkshire, Uk. Issued in 1970 on the ultra collectable Dawn label, their beautiful songs were recorded in a field, surrounded by trees, birds and sun.
This debut album is an Acid Folk masterpiece. Delicate songs, brilliant interpretations and a magic sound provided for their “outdoors recording style”. This sessions keep the attention of Roger Daltrey (The Who) who visited the band those days and John Peel, who used to play their songs.
Mapache issues this album on vinyl for first time from 1970. This edition comes with the original gatefold cover design and replica of the original insert. Also included an extra insert with an interview to the band and the hard to find first Ep from the band, with their cover of Bob Dylan’s Only A Hobo plus three more extra songs not included on the album.
