Anno Domini - On This New Day (1971, UK, folkrockpsych, Thorns vinyl rip, single flac + cue, DR11, artwork)


*** Reviewed by great fellow Adamus67 ***

A Folk-Psych masterpiece featuring Tiger Taylor (ex Eire Apparent), with a superb version of The Byrds' 'So You Want To Be A Rock Star'. The record combines melodic folk tunes with other guitar-drenched rockers, great voices and delicious original songs.

Originally Released on a red/white label Deram – SML R-1085
and the label Polydor (2310 096) Germany 1971(different cover)

A pleasant and satisfying acoustic folk rock, melodic and very beautiful harmonies, vocals and guitars that are responsible for stress. A great set of songs from Anno Domini, formed in 1971 by Eire Apparent exguitarrista David 'Tiger' Taylor. Eire Apparent specializes in heavy rock touring America with the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1967.

Anno Domini offers a completely opposite musical contrast, influenced by American folk rock rhythm present a theme version of the Byrds' So You Want To Be A Star Rock'nroll ". Suggests how the Byrds sound could have reached had they been British. Registration melodic folk songs combined with other drenched rock guitars, big vocals delicious original songs.
Among the ten tracks on the album is a cover "Daddy Rowlin '" Dion that stands alongside the original "Bad Lands Of Ardguth", "The Good Life I Have Known" and a single version added as bonus "Hitcock Railway". "On This New Day" It was a job, much sought after by collectors.
If you like The Byrds and you're a fan of British psychedelia, this is for you.

Formed in Ireland by Taylor (ex-Eire Apparent), the original vinyl of their mildly flavoured folksy album is surprisingly hard to find. The music is gentle and contains some nice melodic patterns. They were obviously influenced by The Byrds. The album begins with a good version of their 'Rock'n'Roll Star'. 'Bad Lands Of Ardguth' is full of ringing guitars. Best of the melodic, folky songs are 'The Trapper' and 'The Good Life I Have Known'. There's also a heavy rockin' version of Dion's 'Daddy Rowlin'. Recommended for fans of melodic acoustic folk.

John Jones and his brother Trevor had earlier played in the Australian band Sweatty Betty. When the group split, the Jones brothers formed Jonesy, Taylor joined Brown & O'Brien, while Mercer went solo and Scott joined T.F.Much and later Bruno AD.
