CHRIS HARWOOD - Nice To Meet Miss Christine (1972)

This is apparently one of UK folk music's most sought after records. It was originally released back in 1970 on a tiny label and quickly sank into obscurity, but since then the album has developed a pretty significant cult following - and rightly so. Featuring a rabble of pretty darn tootin' guest players - Peter Banks (Yes), Tommy Eyre (Rainbow), Ian McDonald (King Crimson), Pete York (The Spencer Davis Group) and renowned arranger Mike Maran, we have quite a stunning collection of tracks which utterly transcend usual folk expectations. In fact it's not really folk music at all, rather this pushes into the realms of psychedelia and at times even muted fusion (?) giving us something quite seriously unique. Of course it's all held together by Christine's incredible vocal chords, which gives the record its heart and the more you listen to her, the harder it is to believe that this is her only record. Apparently she went on to do sporadic session vocals and finds this whole album extremely embarrassing (since she was only 16 years old at the time...) but I think that's what makes her voice so interesting. There's something untrained and na?ve about it which sets it apart from so many other albums of the time, and twinned with the quite incredible musical accompaniments makes this an utterly essential listening experience. Recommended. *
