Daughters of Albion were GREG DEMPSEY and KATHY YESSE (later Kathy Dalton), partners since their days in the folk-rock oriented Gas Company. By 1968, they hooked up with producer LEON RUSSELL and created this unbelievably ambitious psych-pop rock-opera that could’ve only come from that tumultuous moment in time. Clarinets, bells, xylophones, harps and guitars collide magically with elaborate vocal arrangements and intelligent lyrics - all within a psychedelically experimental pop context.
