VA - Mark Pritchard Presents Feel The Spirit

Great collection of 'Other worldy folk music gems and psychedelics' compiled by the man with numerous aliases. A few words from Mr. Pritchard from the inlay - "...basically I've never been a massive fan of traditional folk music. However I would always have a dig through the folk section in second hand record stores because every now and then I would come across a certain style of folk that would give me chills. Call it 'Folk Funk' or 'Soft Psych' or even 'Acid Folk', but what interests me with these tracks is that you can hear that the musicians are drawing on a lot of different influences and styles: Jazz, Prog, Soul, Experimental music; to create something new and original..."
