When romantic, evocative lyrics are matched to sensuous melodies and performed by sensitive musicians, the results are invariably quality performances with timeless appeal. That sums up the output of Magna Carta, one of the best-loved British folk rock groups of the recent past.
This definitive compilation comprises 38 tracks that span the years from 1969 to 2006. They represent the most productive eras of the group and this ‘must have’ double CD set includes their best known songs from a plethora of fine albums, including ‘Magna Carta’, ‘Seasons’, ‘Songs From Wasties Orchard’ and ‘Lord Of The Ages’.
Informative CD liner notes include an in-depth interview with singer/songwriter Chris Simpson, who describes the evolution of his critically acclaimed group and the inspiration behind many of the songs. CD cover by the legendary Roger Dean.
