The Natural Acoustic Band: Is it True Blue?

For Mélange Monday, here’s a bit of Acid-Folk from the early 1972 by a Scottish band by the name of The Natural Acoustic Band. “Is it True Blue?” was from their second LP “Branching In” and was the flip side of their only single “Echoes.”

The Natural Acoustic Band was a three piece unit that consisted of Tom Hoy on guitar and vocals; Robin Thyne on guitar, percussion, vocals and recorders; and Krysia Kocjan on guitars, vocals, and tuned percussion.

Following the break-up of the band, Hoy and Thyne joined Magna Carta. Kocjan released a solo album and did back-up work for a number of artists – notably for Al Stewart in the band Shot in the Dark where she was billed as Krysia Kristianne.

It’s a great song from a virtually unknown band – take a listen.
