Heron: “Take Me Back Home” (1972)

Rustic English acid folk from the time when that country was getting in touch with its indigenous music with the help of Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson, Ashley Hutchings and the like. In the too-brief first incarnation of this band, they recorded in an open field due to an aversion to recording studios. The album cover photo depicts the house where the band and their families all stayed during the time of its recording. Idyllic.

Today Heron are a footnote. Their first two albums are rare, precious and beautiful.
