Product Details
Performer Notes
  • 2 LPs on 2 CDs: WEE TAM (1968)/THE BIG HUGE (1968).
  • The Incredible Sring Band includes: Robin Williamson, Mike Heron.
  • Originally released as two separate albums in 1968, WEE TAM & THE BIG HUGE were audacious then and monumental now. These were, in effect, the Incredible String Band's fourth and fifth albums; their debut appeared just two years prior. The band expanded their base with more stringed instruments from around the world, and increased the song length. More than half the songs are over five minutes in length to accommodate the band's exploration of folkish moods and mysticism. Mike Heron's "Log Cabin In The Sky" is a classic by any measure, and Robin Williamson's "The Half-Remarkable Question" shows him in full command of a deeply anchored musical sensibility. The whole set feels like a continuous piece, with the songs rolling into one another with graceful ease.
Professional Reviews
The Wire (12/00, p.38) - "...Part bricolage, part borrowing, part theft....this is highly sophisticated music, which nods as much to Dylan Thomas and Flann O'Brien as Robbie Burns or Jeannie Robertson..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]n its every riveting meander, the album is an unrepeatable and unfathomable marvel."
