DORRIS HENDERSON & JOHN RENBOURN ~ Watch The Stars FLED 3055

fled3055.jpgFirst released in 1967, Watch The Stars is a remarkable long-lost gem from the mid-‘sixties British folk revival. A beautiful collection of folk, blues and haikus, the album melds a folk-boom topicality with a fine “beat” sensibility; uniting the Afro-American West Coast with suburban London. Long out-of-print, the record is an early milestone in the careers of Dorris Henderson and John Renbourn. Contains two songs written by Anne Briggs and an early cover of Arthur Lee’s Message To Pretty.
