Tina meets Comus

This LP, as it then was, is the first album of this extraordinary band. They played at my college in London in 1972. I was totally taken with them. I went to as many concerts as possible. They were a combination of English folk, Richie Havens, classical music, punk, gothic and something never heard before. They disappeared. Occassional sighting on forums and Amazon. People asking what happened to them; bowing in my dorection when they heard that I had seen them live. Then in 2008 they surfaces on a boat in Sweden. All together but one. And they sang the whole of the first album. You can hear it on Youtube. And now there is a page on MySpace. And then there music went into Tina! Scary music for a scary scene. Enjoy.
