The first three tracks on this CD were originally released on cassette in November 1986 and given away free of charge to members of The Enid's fan club known as he Stand'.

eascape,' omerset Sketches' and nowdonia were composed by the artist, philosopher and composer William Arkle nearly twenty years previously in 1968 but no-one not even the composer had heard it until it was realised and performed by Robert John Godfrey in 1986.

As well as composing music Arkle was a spiritual philosopher, painter, poet, teacher and visionary.

Bill Arkle was a friend of the writer Colin Wilson and attracted a small group of dedicated students.

During the nineteen seventies he published two books, was the subject of a local television documentary and collaborated with The Enid.

This reissue of The Music of William Arkle, from the era of his collaboration with The Enid, is therefore very welcome to me; as rounding-out a more complete picture of this multi-faceted and inspiring man." Taken from the sleevenotes of '"The Music of William Arkle and other recordings' by Professor Bruce Charlton, (July 2017)
