Thread Name: Incredible String Band: An Appreciation.
Subject: RE: Incredible String Band: An Appreciation.
'October Song' is certainly one of the most beautifully melancholy songs ever written, I'd sing it myself but I just break down each time. Voltaire took loads more pages to say similar in 'Candide'. Robin Williamson came to a village hall in Lincolnshire about ten years ago and spellbound us all with tales and songs. And at the end he sang it. I'll never forget it - nor do I want to.
