Not sure why it's taken me this long to post Mellow Candle's 'Swaddling Songs'. It's classic psych folk, with a prog hint here and there. The best moments are the spooky songs, 'Reverend Sisters' being a favourite.

Original copies go for thousands and remains the only album the band released in it's lifetime.
