More Info:

First-ever box set documenting all of Ian A. Anderson's seminal early albums - including lots of rare material. Curated and supported by the artist, 'Please Re-Adjust Your Time' captures an exciting time in British roots music. From gutsy acoustic blues to ground-breaking acid folk, the music sounds as vital today as it did half a century ago. Ian A Anderson is an English folk musician who was a luminary of the late 1960s country blues scene before becoming one of the pioneers of psychedelic/acid folk and founding the now collectable "alternative folk label" Village Thing in the early 1970s. First issued in 1969, 'Stereo Death Breakdown' was credited to Ian Anderson's Country Blues Band, a moniker which hinted at the music therein. Eleven bonus tracks are drawn from Saydisc EPs ('Anderson Jones Jackson', from 1967 and 'Almost The Country Blues', 1968) and Saydisc Matchbox albums ('Blues Like Showers Of Rain', from 1968 and 'The Inverted World', 1969). The self-produced 'Royal York Crescent' (1970) album was Ian's first on his new Village Thing label. Here it's joined by three extra recordings from 1969, live at Farnham Folk And Blues Festival and from sessions at Chapel Studios, London. Recorded at Rockfield Studios, 'A Vulture Is Not A Bird You Can Trust' (1971) is now swelled with a quartet of additional sides, again from a studio tenure in Chapel Studios back in 1969. The fourth and final disc is devoted to Ian's final Village Thing album, 'Singer Sleeps On As Blaze Rages' (1972) which is joined by four extra songs, including three previously unreleased the Hot Vultures' demos recorded at Village Thing, Bristol, 1973. Subsequently, alongside his music career, Ian was founding editor of the popular folk magazine fRoots and a broadcaster who has presented shows on BBC Radio 2, BBC World Service and Jazz FM. Ian currently presents Podwireless - a monthly podcast dedicated to the world of folk, roots and 'unpop' music.
