Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей 1971 11 Songs. First Utterance. Released February 19, 1971. First Utterance Tracklist. Diana ' first album contains an imaginative if elusive brand of experimental folk-rock, with a tense and sometimes distressed vibe. Although there are elements of traditional British folk music, there's an edginess to the songwriting and arrangements that would be entirely alien in a Fairport Convention or Pentangle disc. At times, this straddles the border between folk-rock and the kind of songs you'd expect to be sung at a witches' brew fest, the haunting supernatural atmosphere enhanced by bursts of what sound like a theramin-like violin, hand drums, flute, oboe, ghostly. Comus - First Utterance 1971. To favorites 18 Download album. Listen album. Progressive Rock. Comus - First Utterance review: A twisted, scary & bizarre mix of folk, prog and psychedelia. Very experimental and ahead of its time. First Utterance is hard to compare to anything else really. There is some influence that can be heard in the unsettling atmosphere of Current 93's style of 'apocalyptic folk', but the only album that really sounds remotely similar is Spirogyra's St. Radigunds which was released in the same year, though that is not quite as experimental and is not nearly the same quality

Scary Music. Song to Comus: The Complete Collection. As this expansive though not entirely as complete as promised anthology reminds us, Comus' frightening musical visions surely represented the darkest side of England's late-'60s folk-rock movement. Like a Fairport Convention from Hell, the group pushed folk boundaries into alien progressive, psychedelic, and acid rock realms, capping it with desperate and macabre subject matter and warping all the genres involved and numerous minds in the process.

Comments:
Undeyn
One of my all-time favourite proggy folk albums. Roger Wootton and friends played a full album of gems and a must for every serious collector of progressive and folk music.

Akisame
Probably would have been better served as a 2LP due to there being almost 50 minutes of music so as a result it lacks in the low end a bit. Everything else is pretty clear on my pressing. Inner gatefold image is definitely blurry though but I'll survive.

Naktilar
As someone who actually owns this, I can vouch that it's great. Played on a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon with a good amp and speakers as well as studio headphones, there was nothing really wrong with it. Any hiss that I noticed was due to the original recording and not poor vinyl quality, and the music itself sounds excellent. The only annoyance I had with this was some popping during Bitten and a little bit at the end of The Prisoner, otherwise no complaints. Great glossy gatefold sleeve as well with decently reproduced artwork and a nice printed inner with lyrics. Very good version of this to get if you don't want to track down an original or one of the more expensive reissues, the fact that it comes with the Diana EP is a nice bonus as well.

AfinaS
Great pressing. Bizarre folk at its best. Little disappointed the repress doesn't have the gatefold

Carrot
This is rock music only by association. Taking British folk as point of departure, the music twists and oozes as a vile bunch of snakes, pairing gorgeous melodies and expert playing to ecstatically altered vocals and vicious lyrics.Rape, murder, witchcraft and abuse are main ingredients to the menu, which is cooked with raging madness, but still manages to taste delicately composed. One of very few British folk albums that creates a totally new, dangerous and utterly unique atmosphere. Obligatory listening!

Kemath
Can anybody comment on the sound quality of this release and if it has a gatefold?

MrDog
Does anyone else have any issues with this pressing? The gatefold image on both sides of mine have washed out colours and the gatefold inside is blurry and very pixelated. Very disappointed in this pressing.

Delalbine
I have the 2010 Rise Above Relics reissue and I can confirm, both the inner gatefold artwork and the lyrics insert look like JPG-sourced... insert looks worse. MOV is usually infamous for low-quality artwork at times, but this time I don't blame them.

Bandiri
vinyl sounds great but yea, they did a bad job on the cover.

Rocky Basilisk
Same here... I bought it when I saw it in a store since I was looking for a gatefold version because of the great image inside... exactly what is wrong here... :( I'd sell it before even play it...

Chilele
I suppose he means both. Its still pertaining to this pressing.

Ndlaitha
leonthepro premium.ryan Wait... are you disappointed in the sound quality of the music or just the gatefold sleeve? Your comment sounds like more of a gripe about the quality of the images rather than the sound. It is... That’s packaging, not a pressing issue...

Flarik
noeggs no gripes with the outside cover quality, the inner gatefold art however is very blurry. dunno if intentional Its rarely intentional to make art blurry.

Arashigore
Hold her for me until I get a job, for this package is beautiful ;-;

krot
I no longer have my copy as I sold it, but it was covered in scuffs and light scratches and played with light background noise throughout - GZ's trademark. Real shame for such a deluxe edition of such a great album.

Vushura
My sealed copy direct from the label of this had a huge scratch that clicks for several minutes. Of course, I kept it sealed for a while as I had a CD that I listened to, and noticed it after the set was sold out and I couldn't return it for another copy. I hope this is a freak copy and others aren't effected. It's a single, deep scratch; like someone in Lodenice dropped the record or something!

Fenius
Does anyone have this pressing? I have been trying to get a good pressing of this album and I think Amazon is selling this one. How does it sound? how is the quality of the release?

snowball
Sounds really good in my opinion. Was waiting for a good reissue for this one and since MOV usually does a great job, I purchased it. Really satisfying as far as I’m concerned.

Prince Persie
It sounds ok, a little muddled/low-fidelity in the highs and lacking in bass, but it's flat and quiet. I've not heard an original.

MilsoN
Good pressing/audio quality and nice gatefold sleeve. You can go for it!

ChallengeMine
Good pressing/audio quality and nice gatefold sleeve. Your can go for it!

Dianaghma
Can anyone attest to whether it has a gatefold or not?

Bajinn
It is not. Music On Vinyl always use digital masters. It sounds great tho. I always avoid buying silver and gold pressings as they often crackle, but this one does not. A few silent clicks here and there.

Doomredeemer
Yes it has a gatefold, plus lyric-insert.It is dead-quiet between the songs :)

ME
Yes it has a gatefold cover! Four more words needed.

ndup
The inner gatefold repro is absolutely awful. Pixelated and out of focus. Rest of the artwork is great, including the insert.

Ice_One_Guys
The inner gatefold art is horribly reproduced, very blurry. I also have the Rise Above Relics version. It's much sharper.

Conjukus
What's the sound like? I couldn't find whether it was pressed from original analogue masters or not...

Jaiarton
It's a replica of the original gatefold, color inner artwork and all.

Dandr
Very collectable LP..... though I have yet to meet anyone who actually likes it?

Adrietius
I travelled to Norway from Russia only to listen to live concert of Comus in 2015.

Obong
You are joking, there are lots of people that consider this album to be a masterpiece, for me it is one of my top albums

mIni-Like
I love this album! It’s so dark and strange but also beautiful. The word that comes to mind first is enchanting. It is evocative of more mysterious, dangerous and magic times... of dark English forests, pagan rituals, murder, madness. I play it often. I own the Dawn Records Original pressing and the Rise Above Relics Reissue.

Doath
This is my 4th favorite album of all time.Of course people like it!

Nalme
Do not buy Get Back or Earmark re-issues, they are known to be low quality and digital mastering are used, to get the original mastering and great pressings you have to look at Rise Above Relics pressings

Nagor
This one sounds good and there's no noticeable problem with the pressing...

Cherry The Countess
Pretty awful pressing, very disappointing. Too many cracks and pops, too much white noise, and several skips, especially on side A.

Zugar
How's the sound quality on this one? This album has a history of kinda crackly pressings.

Kekinos
Perfect! Better impossible. No noise! and the color are awesome.

Pameala
I don't know about this specific purple pressing but I have the Black vinyl deluxe edition from Rise Above Records and it sounds fantastic. No surface noise at all.

Blackworm
There also exists a rare 1974 Japanese pressing, the second pressing, in a non-gatefold cover with insert, orange Dawn label, pressed by Teichiku records, UPS 633 YD.

SING
sound quality is crap on this record. sounds about as warm as a youtube video.

Perdana
Does anybody know the officialness of this issue from Get back records or even a faint idea of its earliest release date? It seems like an open ended issue as major sellers across the internet are getting more of these all the time now.

Zorve
Looks like they used a really low quality JPG for the insert.Also the tracks lengths are completely wrong for some reason; The Herald and Drip Drip are easily over 10 minutes each

Felolak
There appears to be a defect on the first song Diana, the song skips three times in the first 15 seconds or so. The vinyl spins smoothly so is definitely the recording. Has anyone else noticed this?

Vijora
Yes, I noticed it too, thought my stylus had jumped. the Earmark one is poor quality.

Gholbithris
Yeah, same problem with my copy, but with even more skips throughout the song. A bit sad, the reissue is perfect in every other aspect. Kinda keeps me from listening to it at all. I usually put on the CD version instead.

Snowskin
Once upon the time, Amon Düül II in psychiatric land...A must have for no reason.

Mezilabar
Very dark album of mutant folk music which was unavailable for many years but is now available to all to hear - on CD at least. Sanctuary have released Song To Comus - The Complete Collection on a double cd set. The second album which followed First Utterance three years later isn't such a good listen but the first album remains very potent with its distressing songs of rape, incest, necrophilia and murder. The vocal style of Roger Wootton won't be for everybody as the word 'theatrical' doesn't really do him justice, his style is eye-poppingly surreal and weird. If you're a true sonic adventurer and don't mind the dread tags 'progressive' or 'acid-folk' then have a go with Comus.

Doukree
Frankly put, probably one of the best albums ever. Criminal how completely out of print it is. Mid-jump between the idyllic wanderings of the Incredible String Band and the more esoteric voyages of 70s prog, yet with instrumental/vocal prowess unmatched, and a darker tinge of the deep european forest only ever revisited by the likes of Current 93 (who worships this album). Sets the bar far too high for all the current "weird folk" scene to even touch. Too bad no one knows about it.
