Description

Oberon - A Midsummer Night's Dream LP. First ever legit reissue of one the rarest psych-folk albums from the UK, originally released in 1971 as a private edition of 99 copies. Oberon consisted of seven young musicians who met while studying at Radley College in Oxford. Influenced by Fairport Convention, Pentangle, King Crimson, Incredible String Band, Sandy Denny and such, they created this stunning piece of progressive folk. Fantastic sound and recording quality, killer flute, guitar, violin, haunting vocals and medieval atmosphere. Digitally remastered by band member / sound engineer Jeremy Birchall, sounding better than ever. Fold-out insert with extensive liner notes and rare pictures. (sealed)

“At one point the UK’s most valuable folk album, this has a dark, claustrophobic sound, heightened by eerie, acid-induced lyrics. Probably the most notable track is “Minas Tirith”, a sinister extended psych-folk excursion which suddenly explodes into a bizarre and metallic (in the literal sense) drum solo. Also notable are “The Hunt”, a strange piece of progressive-folk and a doomy opening version of “Nottamun Town”–  Richard Falk (Galactic Ramble)

“From the murkiest crypts of the progressive folk underground comes this extraordinary LP, with a sound and atmosphere like nothing else. At least one of the few copies pressed should be preserved in the British Museum” –  Patrick Lundborg (Galactic Ramble)

We have remained open during the Coronavirus pandemic and will continue to remain open! Extra thanks to everyone who has been supporting us during this time! Restocking has been more difficult that usual, but I'm trying as best I can to bring more and more great music to the shop! Super huge thanks to you all from my Rockadrome family and I!!

However, please note that everyone in the biz has been experiencing erratic delays in shipping across the board as the world's postal services try to keep operations running as smoothly as possible. So, if you order be prepared for a possibly longer than usual wait as your package could be one that's gets tied up in the system.

New Release!
