Fledg’ling together with Carthage records are very proud to announce a stunning series of INCREDIBLE STRING BAND re-issues. On March 29th we’ll be releasing definitive deluxe CD editions of The INCREDIBLE STRING BAND (FLED 3076), The 5000 SPIRITS OR THE LAYERS OF THE ONION (FLED 3077), The HANGMAN”S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER (FLED 3078) and WEE TAM & The BIG HUGE (FLED 3079). The early recordings of the String Band are among the finest and imaginative of late 1960s. All four albums have been very carefully re-mastered from the original master tapes by Simon Heyworth at Super Audio Mastering. The work was closely supervised by original producer Joe Boyd and engineer John Wood.

“Though there have been other ISB CD re-issues over recent years, these truly are definitive editions. They sound and look fabulous.” The CDs are housed in stunning digipacs with all elements of the original vinyl artwork, new sleevenotes from Clive Palmer, Mike Heron, Robin Williamson and Joe Boyd, and some previously unpublished photographs. Robyn Hitchcock kindly wrote an introduction to the series. Uncut magazine enthusiastically declared these Fledg’ling editions “Reissues of the Month” in their April 2010 issue. Over the next couple of months expect to see reviews and features in many leading publications including Songlines, The Wire, R2, Shindig! and fRoots. The Incredible String Band revival begins here.
