The album Bright Phoebus by the Watersons from 1972.

A real collector’s item in this episode of Disc-Cover. In 1972 Lal and Mike Waterson released the album Bright Phoebus. A collection of their own, modern songs with little instrumental accompaniment. They wrote songs in a period when their original band, the family quartet The Watersons with their sister Norma and cousin John Harrison were on a break. As a consequence of failed pressing, but also a lack of interest of fans in the new direction of the Watersons members, the album became a flop. Not because of musical reasons. In the years after the respect for sharp songs only increased. Unfortunately the album was never rereleased. This made Bright Phoebus a collector’s item with an estimated value of a couple of hundred pounds. Take advantage of the Concertzender and listen to this episode about this hardly obtainable record for free. You will also discover the beauty of an innovative record that is now more than 40 years old.
