Magic Carpet - Magic Carpet [1972]

True psych-folk eastern fusion. Blended sitar (Clem Alford), keening vocals (Alisha Sufit), guitars (Jim Moyes and Alisha Sufit) and Indian tablas (Keshav Sathe).

High quality combination of classically trained sitar player - as opposed to usual home counties chancer - imaginative songs delivered in slinky timbre and quick moves from lower to higher register. Hypnotic, dreamy and melodic chime. 

This, the 2011 reissue with 20 minute bonus Raga outro....nice. Now off with you to

Oddi wrth y brawd
