Comments

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Inside The Groove

Seldom-known(?) folk group's (maybe) only album on Mercury label.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Sounds like ordinary Folk music by ordinary group, as I am not well acquainted with this kind of music :(

At least, I really enjoyed their smooth singing and talented guitar ringing. Nice.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

6 out of 10
