A solid collection of mainly British post-psychedelic folk and blues and follow-up to the Gutbucket compilation from a time when people were about “keepin’ it real”, “movin’ back to our roots” and “gettin’ our heads together” by “goin’ up country”. Son of Gutbucket contrasts interestingly with the more Rhythm & Blues take on American roots music found on this pre-psych collection. There’s nonetheless more than a whiff of prog in both T.I.M.E.’s “Preparation G” and “Walking Down Their Outlook” by High Tide.
There are lots of recognisable names among the credits for the sharp-eyed liner note reader. Especially one with the magnifying function on.
