Post 421 - Extradition - A Love Song / Minuet


Extradition was a phenomenon when the band first appeared on the Sydney folk-music scene in the late 1960s. They were 'indigenous' exponents of everything remarkable that was happening in the contemporary folk movement and they carried that standard with all the magic and originality of those exciting times. They were impossible to label then and they don't fit into any established category today. Their one and only LP "Hush” remains one of the rarest albums released by an Australian artist. but unlike many other albums of the early seventies, this album is not rock nor blues orientated. Instead it mixes folk, traditional folk, yet remains very listenable. Here to download is their one and only single release from 1970 "A Love Song" b/w "Minuet" (SP-110) Produced by Jimmy Stewart and Doug Ashdown with Gus McNiel for Sweet Peach Records. A big thank you to Guy from rockonvinyl.blogspot.com.au for this single.

I'm so excited to have found this blog. I love that you have music to download. I think it's kosher because a lot of this music would be lost otherwise.

Thank you for doing this!
