Trees are a British folk-psych band, not to be confused with the metal and of the same name. This is their second album, recored 1970. The music here is acoustic driven, though not lacking a touch of electric sound, with lovely female vocals mich makes for a sound reminiscent of Jefferson Airplane/Battle of Evermore. Many of the tracks here start off as straight British folk and pick up into some rocking jams. This is a good combination of acoustic meets electric, lovely folk meets 70s rock. Longer tracks contain nice, jammy, instrumental sections and the vocals give the music a pleasant, bittersweet touch. Sides 3 &4 contain remixes (and one demo) of tracks on sides 1 &2, some of which differ slightly in their instrumentation and length, but the difference for the most part is not huge. This music is over the hills and far away. It will take you on a psych-driven journey to the English country side. -Surfer Rosa
