After one spin I instantly ordered the vinyl of this record. This is so charming and soothing. Highly remmonded.

Do a search for it on google, I did and found it - look for a torrent.

great album, just a bit disturbed by B'eirth's association with right wing fascists.

let's face it. B'ee has gone sharply downhill since his magical project In Gowan Ring gave way to Birch Book. as a rambling elfin nature mystic, B'ee shone. as a self-referential singer-songwriter bard-- nay. old fans of his will find a couple of pleasing tracks on his Birch Book moniker, but much of his later efforts are sadly disappointing.

this is just as incredible as the other Birch Book albums. I had the pleasure to watch B'ee perform at a garden gig in Philadelphia. i was hanging out with espers folks and watching him play by a fire. i will never forget it. thanks for the great post and awesome blog.

The Birch Book albums are awesome, though I find his voice more suitable for In Gowan Ring.

It seems that Bobin Eirth in Birch Book is more focusized on something much more rooted in the ancient western world than in the case of his other project In Gowan Ring. In fact in the latter the aesthetic element is predominant while in the former the fresh taste of American folk rock, blues, traditional country music, and the kinds of folk music of the wooden areas of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States pervade your palate.
Gentle, peaceful and flowing songs. “Feet Of Clay” and the instrumental “Hatched in Stone” are one span above all. Anyway an excellent and homogeneous album where B’ee’s song-craftmanship seems to be at his best. Here B’eirth is pouring us in the cup a set of mellow and flowing songs with meanigful lyrics, the vapour of magic is comig up from the cups to our minds.

I found this album to have most strong tracks... but still not quite as pleasing to my ears as IGR. Thanks anyway.
