Fuchsia -s/t. 1971 England

Fuchsia's sole album can be described as thus: It's less pure folk rock than the Trees; not as lush as Mellow Candle; or as off the wall like Jan Dukes de Grey, or Comus, can often be. But somewhere within those parameters exist Fuchsia, an essential slice of that distinctly UK progressive folk rock sound. A very fine example of the genre.

Personal collection

CD: 2003 Night Wings (Italy)

The CD on Night Wings is excellent. It's housed in a fine digi-pak, and features liner notes from band leader Tony Durant, who also oversaw this reissue. I see that Esoteric has since reissued it in 2014, and I'll be curious if they improved on the sound. And there is room here for just that.
