Gôg - Meic Stevens [1977]

(Huge thanks to spell-binding: for this and earlier Gwydion post. Swing by for more iridescent wyrdness.)

And so to Meic Mortimer Stevens, wizard and true Welsh star. Melodic nous and unquestionable earthy authenticity. He doesn't put a foot wrong on this astonishingly good outing. Sure, Dylanisms abound, particularly phrasing and breath control but Meic is his own man -  through and through. Take in Breton idylls, wandering blind boys, and country loving.

Awesome. I didn't have this one. Can't wait to leave the office and download it.
