ANNE BRIGGS (4MENWITHBEARDS)
The first full length album from the legendary folk singer, originally released in 1971. Anne Briggs was a huge influence on the entire British folk-rock movement, especially other female singers such as Sandy Denny, Jacqui McShee, and Maddy Prior.
This album is a strong collection of traditional folk songs and original material and one of the most important releases of the British folk revival.
Despite the fact that Briggs had been on the folk scene since the early 60s this was her first full length effort, delayed by erratic behavior and studio fears, and she would record only two more records before dropping off the scene entirely.
Thankfully we have this, her first and strongest record, reissued with the original artwork.
