Comus – First Utterance.

First Utterance released in 1971 by Comus almost singlehandedly salvages folk music. The album was not a commercial success by any means but has a strong cult, albeit underground, following.

When folk is done well it can sound quite menacing. This album hits that spot. Lyrics and vocal delivery that flow at times in tongues.

It’s hard to pick a stand-out song. Seek out the album and listen to it all. Quite magical.
