Miller Anderson's 1971 debut Bright City was released on the legendary Deram, sub-label of Decca, and is such a stellar example of modern folk with lush strings arrangements.

A brilliant songwriting alongside a pastoral feeling, gentle melodies and a solid background with several amazing players literally bridging the gap between contemporary pop and blues. The album - faithfully remastered - offers a vision of urban Scotland with a bluest' feel and it has to be ranked alongside the work of luminaries such as Donovan or Nick Drake.
