Digitally remastered edition of this 1971 album from the British singer/songwriter.
Keith Christmas is best known for playing the acoustic guitar on David Bowie's first album Space Oddity and appeared at the first Glastonbury Festival.
 
While Keith Christmas' second album was an improvement over his debut, there was still the sense that it was a stretch of his talents to fill an entire record with decent material. In its favor, it had some nicely integrated, varied arrangements that show more imagination than many other British folk-rock recordings of the early '70s: the jazzy piano-dominated vamp of Waiting for the Wind to Rise, the lovely female backup harmonies on The Fawn, the languid tempo of Lorri, the gothic organ of Kent Lullaby, the Mellotron-acoustic guitar-piano combination of Hamlin, the rapid whirl of acoustic guitar picking on Fable of the Wings. About half of the songs were mighty pretty, particularly Hamlin and the delicate The Fawn. Christmas was good at establishing an attractively melancholy musical setting, but his rambling lyrics just couldn't hold up their part of the weight, and he was given to tracks that went on and on for way too long before fading, particularly on Waiting for the Wind to Rise.
