Stunning debut album from 1976 by this legendary / cult UK folk musician. Originally issued as a private pressing, "Ship To Shore" combines 6 and 12 string acoustic guitars with electric textures, effects and unusual soundscapes, culminating on the haunting progressive–folk 11 minute title track. A folk–rock / acid–folk masterpiece highly recommended to anyone into John Martyn, Nick Drake, Michael Chapman, Bob Theil, Pink Floyd...
Mastertape sound, insert with photos and extensive liner notes by Richard Allen
"... A pure simple, thought provoking, frightening and uplifting collection, it evoked timeless themes of environmental concern, spiritual surrender, natural wonderment, doubt and love all woven into a sparse yet entirely original acoustic folk sound." Richard Allen (Freak Emporium)
