Trees first album, The Garden of Jane Delawney (1970) snuggles nicely into contemporary nu-folkies’ idea of the genre, and shares some of the pastoral-whimsy that characterised The Incredible String Band or Donovan, offset by some stunning interpretations of traditional material and Bias’ own songs. The record includes readings of Lady Margaret, Glasgerion, the old standard She Moved Thro’ The Fair, and the extended fade of the group’s own Road, presage the explosive instrumental duelling that would come to characterise the follow up album, On The Shore.
