tales of snow and woe
With backing vocals by Orphan Annie – aka, Annie X-Mas – one may be excused for thinking this in fact none other than the Incredible String Band. Not so.
Goulding was to exit after their second album in 1970, taking up residence in a Buddhist monastry, and the band soon splintered and folded under the weight of his absence. Phil Lynott would later acknowledge his debt to Booth and Goulding in 1972\’s \”Tales of a Blue Orphanage\”; named after the house owned by Goulding\’s girlfriend where the original collective practiced and rehearsed.
Tim Booth: vocals, guitar; Ivan Pawle: vocals, bass, keyboards; Tim Goulding: additional instruments; Orphan Annie: backing vocals. Produced by Joe Boyd.
