One of the rarest private press folk albums in the UK gets a beautiful reissue job from the great Riverman Music imprint out of London. Originally released in 1974 to a minute run of 250 copies, Amaglam from the duo of Geoff Twigg and Brian Rodgers—known collectively as Just Others—boasts a melancholy sense of traditional English whimsy reminiscent of such influential acts of the time as Steeleye Span and the Fairport Convention. Packaged in a becoming heavy cardboard LP sleeve that fully replicates the original album artwork, this long-lost gem is a must-own for any fan of vintage British folk.
