The long journey
of Folkal Point


In the early 1970s four aspiring teenagers recorded an album of British and American acoustic music, with engineer Alan Green at Midas Recordings - some traditional songs, some modern songs.

Only five hundred units of the vinyl long playing record were pressed, half of which succumbed to water damage following a fire.


The other half embarked on a journey of decades to eventually become the most sought after of British folk albums ever produced.

Produced by the now dissolved UK based Midas Recordings label, the album alone is not specifically groundbreaking in its musical direction


nor is it filled with original material but, it has an other-worldliness quality running through it

the haunting female vocals and precise guitar provides a truly outstanding collection of tracks from one of Bristol's finest and best kept secrets.
