  • Description

    CD release for the classic Shirley Collins recording from 1967. Shirley has long been regarded as one of England's most distinctive and acclaimed folk voices. "The Power Of The True Love Knot" was recorded by legendary producer Joe Boyd with exuberant support from the Incredible String Band's Robin Williamson and Mike Heron, and sensitive arrangements from sister Dolly.

    The songs on this record belong to ladies fair and tender, the ballad-heroines with lily hands, riding through the night, sighing for love, wandering through meadows, distracted, saving or losing their virtue, getting pregnant, eloping with gypsies, dying of remorse, twined in the True-Loves knot. This classic album has been remastered from the original tapes and completely repackaged.
