Culpeper’s Orchard is a great Danish psych/rock group that put out three albums, of which this is the only one to make the transfer to CD.
This band recorded one of the most beautiful records in Danish rock history. This self-titled album presents excellent electric guitar rock with some folk influences.
A Danish rock band fronted by Englishman Cy Nicklin, this foursome produced three albums in the early 70's, before disbanding but recorded another one under the shorter name Culpeper in 77, but it does not sound much like their former albums. The debut was particularly successful both commercially and artistically, a very entertaining and professional effort, somewhere stuck between Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull and Beatles.
The second album was more folky but saw two members leave after its release, leaving Nicklin alone at the helm and recording the third album, sometimes bordering country music.
