• Marc Brierley was a talented folk artist who made his name as a singer-songwriter during the second half of the Sixties.
• After making an EP in 1966 for Transatlantic, Marc signed with CBS for two albums, Welcome To The Citadel (1968) and Hello (1969), helped by some of the best musicians on the circuit. Both are now prized collector’s items by fans of the Acid Folk era.
• This welcome reissue of Marc’s debut album Welcome To The Citadel is swelled by a dozen bonus tracks: all five tracks from Marc’s self-titled Transatlantic EP, the stand-alone CBS single from 1969, ‘Stay A Little Longer Merry Ann’/’Flaxen Hair’, and five hitherto unheard home demos.
• Marc Brierley has written new sleeve-notes for this overdue reissue of a cult classic.
• Boasts the original cover art by painter Ron Henderson, who was also responsible for the psychedelic liquid light shows for Pink Floyd and others at the UFO club.
N.B. This album is released August 25 and will not be dispatched before this date.
