The Young Tradition were an English folk trio of the 1960s, formed by Peter Bellamy, Royston Wood and Heather Wood. They recorded three albums of mainly traditional British folk music, sung in arrangements for their three unaccompanied voices.
This is their only EP from 1968, a year before they split up due to "musical differences".
Royston and Heather Wood continued to work together after the split with Peter Bellamy in 1969, but they didn't record again until 1977 when they released No Relation, an album which included Peter Bellamy as guest singer on three tracks and also appearances by guitarists Pete Kirtley and Simon Nicol and bass guitarist Ashley Hutchings.
Royston Wood sang briefly with Swan Arcade and died after a car accident in 1990, and Peter Bellamy committed suicide in 1991. Heather Wood has lived in New York City since 1977.
This EP has light surface marks which, on playing, didn't effect playback. The outer sleeve is in good condition with a small tear on the right hand open edge. The inner sleeve is somewhat creased.
