There are not many underground/folk albums we are keen on putting out. The album Steve Atkinson – Small Boats is one we loved straight away. Steve was just not easy to find. So with some help from a student (Steve was a teacher) we where able to locate him. If you think the early Mick Stevens albums are cool, Tony Caro & John is a killer album and you love the tradition of British underground folk music, you will really like this album. Very well composed electric & acoustic songs with beautiful vocals, guitar, violin, recorder, cello, bass, chimes and clarinet, this albums is a little masterpiece. Recorded between 1980 and 1981.
Steve said: “My musical education came from the folk clubs of Bedfordshire, Fairport Convention, John Peel, West Coast bands like Love, Jefferson Airplane and the Doors, Punk, The Beach Boys and of course the Beatles”. A very beautiful album which deserves a good spot as a shiny star in the folk music universe.
