ISOLATION are one of the most obscure UK folk acts. Released as a micro-private edition in 1973 (on the Riverside label), their unique album is a loner folk wonder, hinting sometimes at jazzy psych climates. The hazy melancholy of the music remind strongly of the first Nick Drake album and the finger-styled guitar, nods at Davey Graham. The whole album has a very cohesive feel and the simple sound reflects the limitations of instrumentation; the organic natural sound of acoustic instruments seems to fit the music perfectly and the subtle interplay between acoustic guitars with piano and flute come as a natural cross between a folkier version of UNICORN and the moody aspects of OBERON. A strong album of the 70ies underground folk scene and a monster rarity, selling more than 1,200 € these days.

Recorded at Riverside on 10th January 1973
