One of the key voices in British folk,"False True Lovers" was Shirley Collins debut album, recorded in 1959 for Smithsonian Folkways when Collins (who had just spent time collecting field recordings with the legendary Alan Lomax all around the American South) was just 23. This album, a collection of a cappella British and Irish folk songs helped paved the way for the British folk revival of the 1960s, when Collins, by this time married to Ashley Hutchings, helped introduce bands like Pentangle, Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span to more traditional fare. A masterpiece of the genre!
