Description

A.L. Lloyd, along with Ewan MacColl was one of the founding fathers and guiding lights of the UK Folk Song revival. He started his recording career in the early 1950's. As Artistic Director of Topic Records he would influence many of the leading figures of the Folk scene. During the 1950's he made a number of themed LPs including his epic collection of Child Ballads (FECD240). This album was one such themed collection and is devoted to 'love songs' to be found in the English tradition. Over the years many bands and individuals have experimented with the presentation of Folk songs from Folk Rock to the fusion with other genres and traditions. Lloyd's straightforward presentation - often unaccompanied - remains a focal point in getting in to the songs, letting the songs themselves tell the story and is an object lesson for aspiring singers.
