An unknown and precious album recorded in 1975 by two friends who recorded one side

each, they made just two acetates and then handmade beautiful covers from two enlargements

of a photograph of the Isles of St Kilda. Side one is a neo classical prog rock epic in the style of

Renaissance and Continuum, inspired by the wild and pagan isles of St Kilda where, as a 16 yr

old, the composer Peter Mc Kerrow was taken by military launch to conduct a census on the

rare Soay Sheep that live there. A storm blew away his tent on the first night. The other side is

by his canadian pal who attended the same Uni in england, deeply homesick for Canada and

surviving a broken relationship these songs are melancholic and Cohen-esque. The original Lp

is astonishingly gorgeous and one of the most desirable looking artefacts of the prog era
