The Circle Is Broken Live And Studio (2CD)

The Incredible String Band were a psychedelic folk band formed by Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron in Scotland in 1966. The band built a considerable following, especially in the British counterculture, notably with their albums The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion, The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter, and Wee Tam and the Big Huge. They became pioneers in psychedelic folk and, through integrating a wide variety of traditional music forms and instruments, in the development of world music.

Following Palmer’s early departure, Williamson and Heron performed as a duo, later augmented by other musicians. The band split up in 1974

The Circle is Unbroken is a double CD collection of the the Chelsea Demo Sessions from 1967 plus a live recording from Canada in 1972.
