Mammoth Special progressive folk folk

Enlarge this picture! NEW CD RELEASE OF THE CLASSIC SECOND ALBUM BY PROGRESSIVE FOLK ROCK BAND DECAMERON ORIGINALLY RELEASED ON THE MOONCREST LABEL

FEATURING A RARE BONUS TRACK

REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES

BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a new official CD release of the album "MAMMOTH SPECIAL” by the British Progressive / Folk-Rock group DECAMERON. Formed in 1968 in Gloucestershire by JOHNNY COPPIN (Guitar, Vocals) and DAVE BELL (Guitar, Vocals), by 1971 the band evolved into a quartet with the arrival of AL FENN on Lead Guitar and Mandolin and GEOFF MARCH on Violin and Cello. The group originally signed to VERTIGO records in 1973 and recorded their debut album for the label that year. By 1974 the band’s line-up had changed with AL FENN departing and DIK CADBURY joining the group on Lead and 12-string acoustic guitar and bass. GEOFF MARCH incorporated Keyboards into his repertoire and the band signed to Mooncrest Records to record the album "MAMMOTH SPECIAL”, which saw DECAMERON move into a more "progressive” style. This new CD edition is remastered from the original tapes and adds the bonus track 'TWINSET AND PEARLS’. This Esoteric Recordings reissue includes a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork and features a new essay.
