The Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs Of Black British Experience: Vinyl LPTXLP611
Release Date: 20th January
An instant classic, aptly on the home of British folk Topic. Angeline Morrison searches deep into the history of British folk to retell, to highlight and bring forth the Black British Experience, which until now has been lacking in folk. The result is a record where the songs sound like standards that have been told throughout the ages.
For those who dig: Shirley Collins, Topic Records, Eliza Carthy, The Watersons...
Originally released on CD/ digitally to commemorate Black History Month in October, this powerful record is now available in vinyl format and boasts a full colour inner sleeve, complete with extensive sleeve notes by Angeline plus two limited edition postcards featuring artwork from the album. On classic black vinyl, this release is limited to 500 copies.
'The Sorrow Songs' featured in Mojo magazine's top 10 folk albums of 2022 and in the top 10 of the official Folk Chart on release. Angeline made an unforgettable appearance on 'Later...With Jools Holland' in October and was the subject of an extensive Guardian article the same month.
