Description

First released in 1965, "Folk Roots, New Routes" is a remarkably experimental record, uniting Shirley Collins' beautiful singing with Davy Graham's jazz-inflected guitar work. Although the partnership only lasted for this recording and a handful of live shows, it left a powerful legacy in the English folk song revival. The album captures the first really great accompanied English folk song and was a template for Fairport Convention's seminal "Liege and Lief". For this carefully remastered edition Fledg'ling have restored all the elements of the original artwork and added several previously unpublished photographs. New sleeve-note essay by Ken Hunt; deluxe slip-cased packaging.
