Probably the sonic excellent demo recordings of Midwinter from the year 1973 would never have been released if the private pressing of the successor band Stone Angel had not caused a sensation (originals cost meanwhile about 800 Euro). One can certainly call the band in the same breath as Mellow Candle and the Trees, because their own sound in the context of British Folk is guaranteed here.
The disc marks the start of a three-year reissue offensive of all Bevis Frond albums. Who knows the enormous output of Nick Saloman, knows, which quantities will come there. Compared to other representatives of the neo-psych scene, the Lo-Fi approach of Bevis Frond is obvious, because Saloman played almost all instruments in the home studio himself (of course to save money!), which led to restrictions in the sound, but also interesting possibilities of expression.
