Mandy Morton and Spriguns


Mandy Morton is one of the talented English female folk singers, most of whom are well known, sadly, mainly in the UK. During her scenic career Mandy has released six albums in total: "Jack With a Feather" (1975, self-released on LP; reissued on CD by "Hi-Note"), "Revel Weird And Wind" (1976), "Time Will Pass" (1977, both on "Decca"), "Magic Lady" (1978, self-released on LP; reissued on CD by "Hi-Note"), "Sea of Storms" (1980, LP/CD by "Polydor"), and "Valley of Light" (1983, self-released on LP, reissued on CD by "Hi-Note").

While "Sea of Storms" was Mandy's commercially most successful album, "Magic Lady" was generally regarded as the most progressive one in her discography. Actually, "Magic Lady" is the first solo album by English folk music singer Mandy Morton, while three previous albums were released under the name of "Spriguns of Tolgus". At the time Mandy was a real star of the genre (at least in the UK), so I was prepared to hear not much but usual Folk Rock on her debut solo album.

To my surprise, it seems there are neither Real Folk songs nor any typical Folk-Rock songs on "Magic Lady". All baker's dozen of Magic songs, composed by Lady Mandy within united stylistics, sound original and interesting, but (to me, fortunately), there hides just a slight folk-ish spirit on the album as a whole and that even on those songs that feature traditional folk instruments (cello, viola and concertina). Bright, melodious and accessible, ten out of the thirteen tracks of the album can be easily described as songs of light Neo Progressive that can gladden a lot of Neo fans. As for the other three out of thirteen, According to Mathew, Goodbye the Day, and Witchfinder (tracks 3, 5 & 9 respectively), these wonderful songs contain really rich and large-scale instrumental arrangements, characteristic for Classic Art Rock.

So they, as real progressive champions here, are absolute winners on the album. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
