Bright Phoebus Revisited: Eliza Carthy + Martin Carthy + Jarvis Cocker + Richard Hawley + Marry Waterson & Oliver Knight + Norma Waterson + John Smith + Kami Thompson + Kate St John + Neill MacColl + Rory MacFarlane + Martyn Baker

Written by the late Lal and Mike Waterson, two folk luminaries and members of the legendary Waterson family, Bright Phoebus was released in 1972 on the Trailer label. It also featured contributions by Martin Carthy, Richard Thompson and Maddy Prior, as well as a host of other friends and relations.

This magical collection of very English song writing is the only album of Lal and Mike's to feature original rather than traditional songs. Bright Phoebus mixes poetic ballads of life, death, love and longing with a surreal world view and humour, with a Sgt Pepper and Bonzo Dog pop-sensibility. It has long been acknowledged as one of the finest achievements of the British folk revival, despite the fact that it has been out of print for many years.

In October 2013, Bright Phoebus Revisited will draw together the remaining members of the Waterson family plus very special guests, in a unique celebration of the life and work of Lal and Mike through their music. The album will be performed live for the very first time along with previously unheard and unreleased songs.
