“Spirit Of Love” (Epic Japan – ECPL-25) Bloody rare Japan 1st original pressing from 1972 on high quality vinyl – Ok, one can be fairly short about this album. Why? Because it is simply one of the most beautiful acid folk albums ever to seep out of the British Isles. What makes this copy such a true treasure trove find is that is a truly dead mint copy. Man upon locking my eyes upon this one for the first time, I could not believe mint copies of COB albums existed – you know as in mint in the true sense of the word. As far as the music is concerned, I guess you all know the deal. COB were ex-Incredible String Band founding member Clive Palmer’s band and after quitting the Incredible String Band when their debut album was canned he simply vanished from the scene, only to surface again a year later in the disguise of COB, which aptly stood for Clive’s Original Band. “Spirit of Love” has a hymnal, rural English vibe attached to it that is definitely heading towards folk infested waters instead of cross-mutating into a folk-rock sound. Palmer’s vocals are just exquisite, calm, soothing, levitating even at times which only attributes to the completely acoustic nature of this disc. “Music of the Ages” and “Serpent’s Kiss” are some of the tracks on the LP that are just mesmerizing in their beauty and execution. But it would be totally unfair to slag of COB as just another folk band. Nope, they sound quite exotic at times, otherworldly and even lysergic due to enriching their tonal palette with unusual instruments for that day like the harmonium and dulcitone. It makes the group sound at times even completely spaceward bound and psychedelic such as the track “Evening Air” will show and unveil upon spinning it. But it’s this naive charm and willingness to sound different that makes Spirit of Love such a magical album. Although maybe too low-key for some, it is definitely to these ears one of the best English folk albums out there. The band effectively hit a rural English country folk-psych sound that’s visionary and highly original, completely different to the String Band. To me it is a classic UK psych tinted folk album that defies even the greatness of Trees, Mellow Candle and Spirogyra and you know when you are catapulted into those regions you better sound good and deliver the goods. And COB definitely lives up to that promise. They are stellar. Rare 1st original pressings in a like new condition, I do not believe they come any better than this, since this copy is bound to be a museum piece some day…. ( from Tiliqua )
