Mr Fox - Join Us In Our Game - 1970-1971 (England 2004) @320


Originally released on the Transatlantic label in 1970 and 1971 respectively, this 2 on 1 includes  Mr Fox and The Gipsy, the only two albums by the Yorkshire folk group.

Mr Fox were an early 1970s electric folk or folk rock band. They were seen as in the ‘second generation’ of electric folk performers and for a time were compared with Steeleye Span and Sandy Denny’s Fotheringay. Unlike Steeleye Span they mainly wrote their own material in a traditional style and developed a distinct ‘northern’ variant of the genre. They demonstrate the impact and diversity of the electric folk movement and the members went on to pursue significant careers within the electric folk and traditional music genres after they disbanded in 1972 having recording two highly regarded albums.

PLEASE try to put these on something besides Rapidhare! If you don't have an account it's just miserable to try to get them.

Wow!

I wasn't the anonymous that asked for alternate links - but I'm impressed you did so.

Thanks!

Another mous says Thank You - for some really great music and, now, for these alternative download links. Rapidshare is, indeed, a pain.

I have search high and low for The Gypsy! I saw Mr Fox supporting Julie Felix at Pembroke Castle in the early 70s when I was in school. I have the vinyl (but no turntable these days). Although not a huge folk fan this will bring back so many great memories! Many thanks
