The Incredible String Band - Some Albums
The Incredible String Band was a psychedelic folk band formed in Scotland in 1965. The band built a considerable following, especially within British counterculture, before splitting up in 1974. The group's members are musical pioneers in psych folk and, by integrating a wide variety of traditional music forms and instruments, in the development of world music. The group reformed in 1999 and continued to perform until 2006. The Incredible String Band - 1968 - The Big Huge Wee Tam and the Big Huge is the fourth album by the band, released in Europe as both a double LP and separate single LPs in November 1968. In the US, however, the two discs were released separately as Wee Tam and The Big Huge. 01 - Maya 02 - Grreatest Friend 03 - Son Of Noah's Brother 04 - Lordly Nightshade 05 - Mountain Of God 06 - Cousin Caterpillar 07 - Iron Stone 08 - Douglas Traherne Harding 09 - Circle Is Unbroken LINK The Incredible String Band - 1969 - Changing Horses
Changing Horses is the fifth album by the Incredible String Band. It was the first record released by the band after they had openly given up drugs (which had played an undeniable role in their image and sound in the late 60s up to that point), alluded to in one of the tracks, White Bird, as well as, more explicitly, in the album title. It is also the first album they recorded following their collective conversion to the Church of Scientology - which was indeed their reason for giving up drugs.
