2012 two CD set. Based on the bestselling book by Rob Young, Electric Eden lets you hear how Britain's traditional music was transformed by Folk singers, guitar geniuses, Psychedelic troubadours and Jazz virtuosos. A generation of musicians drew inspiration from a rural paradise that nurtured the Indian summer of British Folk-Rock in the late 1960s and early '70s: an Albion dreamtime where mythical landscapes, creative isolation and pastoral time-travelling combined to forge the golden age of Folk-Rock. This unique package was entirely compiled by Rob Young, author of the bestselling book, and includes a thorough and fascinating sleevenote written by Rob which details the story behind the selections. It features such purveyors of the genre as Fairport Convention, John Martyn, Bert Jansch, Pentangle and Nick Drake.
