I was 19 and living on next to nothing in Galway, subsisting on bargain-bin tapes which included best of albums from The Archies and Tommy Steele, the only contemporary release I can remember stumping up for was 'Loveless'.
None of my favourites covered yet here ... anything connected with Bo Anders Persson is usually essential International Harvester / Harvester / Trad Gras Och Stenar / Parson Sound. Also Algarnas Tradgard are in that headlifting progressive folk bracket.
There was a regular set-piece that got dropped because people were so unhappy about the flagrant Dreyblatt-ism of it.

musical moments that are actually convincing on this album are like oases in the desert - more refreshing than tap water in the city.
Celtic Frost: Morbid Tales
always stunning - I also think Stephen Priestly established quite a unique and wonderful drum style on this record...
