Hearken To The Witches Rune - Dave and Toni Arthur [1971]

Yes, we stripped naked and danced round in a circle. But this was surprisingly unsexy.
 - Toni Arthur of English folk's great lost recordings...they are abroad in the thick of night, squinting out of the midnight shadows, as if about to disrobe for a black mass. This collection of the magical ballads they were steeped in at the time - Alison Gross, The Standing Stones, The Cruel Mother - has the raw spontaneity of what they might have been like if incorporated in magic ritual.
 - Rob Young, Electric Eden

And more disturbing than witchcraft...
