Once Moor Once Moor CD (2012)
CD $22.05 Buy It  Details (Import)
Magic Carpet music CDs ONCE MOOR (subtitle Artist 2) is the follow-up album of the original UK Artist band, whose legendary first album, eponymously named Artist, was released in early 1972 on the UK Mushroom label, now reissued on the Artist Records label. The original 1972 album has since become a cult collectable item. 'Based around the classically trained sitar virtuoso, Clem Alford, and the breathtaking ethereal vocalist, Alisha Sufit, Artist delivered perhaps one of the finest Indian-influenced psychedelic folk albums of the 1970's. ' (Quote). Featuring two original members, Alisha Sufit and Clem Alford, with brilliant contributions from Pandit Dinesh and Esmail Sheikh on tabla, the re-formed Artist band recorded Once Moor in 1996. The recording was issued on CD and also on heavy-weight top quality vinyl pressed in the UK at the E.M.I. plant. Phil McMullen of Ptolemaic Terrascope writes, 'Gorgeous melody, bittersweet lyrics. ' This album is a must for collectors of Artist related releases.

Magic Carpet discography The legendary UK band, Artist, was formed in 1971 by Alisha Sufit (singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist), Clem Alford (sitar, esraj), Jim Moyes (guitar), and Keshav Sathe (Indian tabla / percussion). Artist created a unique and unusual sound in a true meld of musical styles and influences. The sitar player, Clem Alford, was classically trained in the Indian tradition, as was tabla player, Keshav Sathe. Alisha Sufit, who first met Jim Moyes when they were both students at Chelsea School of Art in the sixties, writes original songs reflecting diverse influences - including traditional, contemporary and eastern folk, and 70s psychedelic progressive folk. The band recorded one eponymous album first released in 1972. The original vinyl version has since become a sought-after collectable, now reissued on CD by Artist Records label. Visit the MySpace page or their web site for more information. Quote: 'Based around the classically trained sitar virtuoso Clem Alford and the breathtaking ethereal vocalist Alisha Sufit, Artist delivered perhaps one of the finest Indian-influenced psychedelic folk albums of the 1970's. Unfortunately this supremely talented collective split before the album was released. Alisha Sufit's astonishing vocal talents are included in nine of the twelve tracks, the remaining three being instrumental. Alisha Sufit and Jim Moyes play guitar, with the brilliant Keshav Sathe on tabla percussion. This album has been described as 'a psych folk gem - a unique and extraordinary fusion of east and west, Artist being one of the very first bands to truly combine Indian and western instrumentation'. For the listener who craves the deep, warm, dark green and forest brown, fog-drenched Indian influenced psychedelia that chartered its way out of San Francisco in the late sixties / early seventies, this reissue of the Artist's debut record will ring a true chord. True, the band hailed from the UKĊ  nowhere near the flower children of the Haight, but their brand of "Eastern Psych Folk" is close kin to After Bathing At Baxter's era Jefferson Airplane (a seriously underrated record) and calls to mind the Bay Area folk revival scene going on today. In a time of Devendra Banhart's elfin freakiness, Joanna Newsom's evil-angel resurrections, and the resurgence of interest in Vashti Bunyan, the Artist's 1972 lost classic could not sound fresher. Alisha Sufit is a resurrecting chanteuse whose dark voice is crystal clear and mesmerizing; Clem Alford's sitar playing is top notch and truly psychedelic. The songs come as old friends (our favorite: "Father Time") and hang...
