HASH(0x8a4030b4) étoiles sur 5 What We Did in the Seventies 10 mars 2000
Par Fairportfan - Publié sur
Format: CD
Yes, children, we had superstars in the Seventies.
And then we had quirky projects like this one.
Based on the novel of the same name by Lord Dunsany (q.v.), which also was a major inspiration for the fantasy of Michael Moorcock (note the lines here about Alvaric's sword :"Rune singer, doom bringer... Death dealer, soul stealer..."), this was a side project for Johnson & Knight then (and again recently) in Steeleye Span, and a whole lot of other oddly assorted Brit folkie, blues and theatrical types; part of the Seventies fad for elaborate concept albums.
It's a good one, nonetheless.
Narrated by Christopher Lee, the only living actor i know of who can speak in boldface (who also portrays the King of Elfland and sort-of sings one song), this is the story of the ill-advised decision by the people of the land of Erl to demand that their Lord's son, Alveric (Frankie Miller), go to Elfland and find and steal and marry the King of Elfland's daughter, Lirazel (Mary Hopkin), in order to bear a magic son to rule Erl. (Why is not specified here, but it sounds like a bad idea to me.)
Pausing only to get himself a sword forged from a thunderbolt by a blues-shouting witch (P.P.Arnold), Alveric sets out and does just that, and he and Lirazel are happily settled in the mortal world when the King sends a troll (Brit blues legend Alexis Korner) with a rune, and Lirazel is forced to return to Elfland, which means, of course, that Alveric has to go on another quest to find her (aptly summed up in the song "(Just) Another Day of Searching"), while various denizens of Elfland, having sneaked across the border, raise hob in Erl ("Too Much Magic", which features a school choir on backing vocals).
Finally, however, the King relents, and, in a compromise of sorts, annexes Erl into Elfland, which leads to the final song, "Beyond the Fields We Know", beautifully sung by Hopkin.
This outline sounds sillier than Dunsany's original story, or even the album, but the album *does* suffer a bit from the fact that they have compressed a pretty good-sized novel into one album -- but is pretty good for all that.
Several of the songs (particularly "Witch!", with its bluess anthem verse and chorus/forging spell ending in the ringing declaration "Thunderbolt iron will win the day!", "The Coming of the Troll", in Korner's whiskey-voiced bark "I'm so free nothing can catch me!", and the final song, summing up the lure and grandeur and wonder of all good fantasy. promising that "Someday we shall go where there is neither Right nor Wrong...") are likely to stay with you a while, and the portrayal of Dunsany's twilit, sepia-toned fantasy world is accurate enough that one can almost see the strange woods and twisted castles of Elfland.
I don't know if i'd recommend this for *everyone* -- but fans of Dunsany or of Michael Moorcock or of that sort of fantasy in general should certainly consider it, as should fans of Mary Hopkin or Christopher Lee.

Previous reviewer does a fine job - but does not note that there is a small but vocal cult following this (not that kind of cult)- the ones I am aware of being in SF/Fantasy Con circles (filking,etc. for those who know it). Thunderbolt Iron/in the Elf-King's castle (the battle for the Princess/ and the war-song Beyond the Fields We Know make the album - but it is all worth the effort to find.

Maybe you can get an idea of how much I like this by knowing that I have spent over 20 years trying to find a CD of it. I first started when I began replacing some of my VAST LP collection with CDs. One store finally found a reference, ordered it, but it was out of stock and discontinued. I purchased the LP when it first came out because I have long been a fantasy fan and had read the original story by Lord Dunsany. There may be another clue in the fact that I plan to have "Beyond the Fields We Know" played at my funeral.The music is very memorable, I can still sing "Too Much Magic" for myself.Also happens its a good morality tale - be careful what you wish for..
I wished for this and found it at Amazon and don't think I'll regret it.

HASH(0x8a40390c) étoiles sur 5 Short Shrift to an Epic Fantasy 17 décembre 2007
Par Robert N. Taylor - Publié sur
Format: CD
I enjoyed the other two reviews and must agree with all they proffered concerning this record. My spouse who is not of the '70s generation of listeners thought it was Type O Nagative's Peter Steele singing when she heard the opening of Christopher Lee doing one of the songs.

I find little to say on the production. I enjoyed it, plus the artwork on the cover. If I have anything to say negative it is that it would have been better if this were a double LP. It would have given more space to develop the theme of the story taken from Lord Dunsany's book of the same name. A reading of the book might help listners to understand the theme of the record better.

When I was a child we had this album at home and we also had it on tape so we could listen to it in the car. Back then, I did'nt understand the lyrics but was fascinated by the voice of Christopher Lee, the running Troll, the scary Witch and thundering King. Since long, the album and tape have vanished and it is great to have it back, on CD. The music is as wonderful as ever and even now I do understand the lyrics, it has'nt lost any of the magic it had for me when I was little.
