In the “Wicker man” post below (use the tags to find it), I wrote how, at the end of the eighties, us volatile postmod popsike freaks thought the “Wicker Man” soundtrack was by Trees. “Must be. Who else could it be by!” Turned out to be (Paul Giovanni’s) Magnet – totally obscure. Anyhow, in those days, we were also quite nuts (and berries) about this killer track (as collectors and other salesmen like to say): “She looked down” (1988) is off the “Fern Hill“ lp by Mick Wills, and can also be found on the “Woronzoid” v/a 2lp label sampler, both on Woronzow (1988). Electric guitar extraordinaire by Nick Saloman, of the Bevis Frond / Psychic Circle fame. The image above is the Hipgnosis sleeve to Trees’ “On The Shore” lp (CBS UK lp 1970, Decal / Charly reissue lp 1987, BGO cd 199X, Sony BMG deluxe 2cd 2007, Sunbeam 2lp 200X) – one of my favourite (psychedelic) folk albums of all time.
