The Incredible String Band was founded in Edinburgh in 1965, when Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and later Mike Heron began a journey which would connect traditional folk music, ragtime and the emerging counterculture / psychedelic scene. Their remarkable early recordings paved the way for what has since become known as 'World Music'. Their debut album, first released in 1966 was a turning point album for many - the songs, the notes on the back, the photo on the front, the romance, the strangeness - all appearing as an harbinger of another world. For many fans this beguiling album was the first step in a life-long fascination for all things ISB. The Fledg'ling edition has been carefully remastered by original producer Joe Boyd and engineer John Wood. Packaged in a stunning digipac with all elements of the original artwork and new sleevenotes from Clive Palmer and Robyn Hitchcock.
