Village Green

From: Dublin?

Active: mid/late 70s



Folk quartet with just one album to their name, released on the label usually associated with the Wolfe Tones. This album includes ballads, electric folk, folk rock and even, despite the drummerless lineup, celtic rock -- a session drummer was used in the studio. While much of it is not too original for 1978, with too many songs and arrangements copied from predecessors, it's certainly well executed, and several tracks would be of interest to Horslips fans. There's also a Bob Dylan cover and a version of "Summertime", showing that they weren't simply Wolfe Tones copyists. Even so it hasn't attracted much attention from collectors and is inexpensive. Recorded at Trend Studios, Dublin, January 1978.

The less than informative sleeve notes:


• Our Generation
LP - Triskel Records - TRL 1005 - 1978

Notes: Recorded at Trend Studios Dublin, January 1978. Engineered by Paul Waldron, produced by Brian Warfield & Tommy Byrne. With drums & percussion by Dave Gaynor (then ex Angel, Rob Strong Band, Skid Row and Spud).
