More Info:

The Incredible String Band were a British psychedelic folk band formed by Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron in Edinburgh in 1966. The band built a considerable following, notably with their albums The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion (1967), The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter (1968), and Wee Tam and the Big Huge (1968). They became pioneers in psychedelic folk and, by integrating a wide variety of traditional music forms and instruments, they made a significant contribution to the development of what is now called world music. Following Palmer's early departure, Williamson and Heron performed as a duo, but were eventually augmented by other musicians such as Licorice McKechnie, Rose Simpson, and Malcolm Le Maistre. The band split up in 1974 but reconvened in 1999 and continued to perform with changing lineups until 2006. This release brought to you at mid-price is a live show recorded at the Fillmore East on 5th June 1968. It features some truly mesmeric performances of tracks from the band's first two albums, and showcases songs such as 'Maya' and 'Ducks On A Pond', which would feature on the forthcoming Wee Tam and the Big Huge.
