More Info

Serene folk inflected progressive rock, cherry red used one song from a poor condition acetate on a recent compilation, 3 acetate copies were made in 1970, we used the only surviving near mint lp thats owned by an ex member as source with great audio. The songs Oakenshade and Waxing of the Moon are poetic genius, using a guitar with a damaged bridge to create a sitar like drone, the vocals have an air of resigned melancholia, and the lyrics connect with a mystical understanding of and reverence for nature. issued with the full co operation of all the band, lifeblud later explored a heavier sound that sometimes hits the level of High Tide, and we have 2 more lifeblud lps scheduled for release. housed in a gatefold sleeve with band history, reproducing the original typed lyric sheets, and repro of the acetate labels.
