This is the first in a series of CDR albums compiled by Mark Coyle through the now defunct website The Unbroken Circle. Something of an underground cult, finding information on these compilations (including original release dates) is difficult. They pop up on blogs from time to time but they found their original audience through collecting and trading.
If you are familiar with acid / psychedelic folk you will no doubt be familiar with many of the artists here. Or, if you're like my friend Marc, you will own all of them. However, even for those well versed in the wyrd, these are outstanding compilations. Each one should hopefully throw up a couple of unknown jams for you. It's here that I discovered one of my favourite artists, Mark Fry.
Dry your mushrooms, polish the maypole, sit back and psyche.
