MARC ELLINGTON - MARC ELLINGTON (PHILIPS 1969) Jap/Kor mastering cardboard sleeve




Marc Ellington's debut album on Philips in 1969.
A Scottish folksinger and multi-instrumentalist who has guested with Fairport Convention on the latter group's recordings, starting with providing some vocal support on the Unhalfbricking album in 1969. Additionally, he worked with Matthews Southern Comfort on their self-titled 1969 LP, playing percussion, and recorded his debut album that same year, which featured his singing, guitar work, and bagpipes. The latter album, recorded on the Ampex label, also included contributions from Fairport alumni Simon Nicol and Richard Thompson. Ellington subsequently contributed to several of Thompson's recordings, and sang on Linda Thompson's 1996 Dreams Fly Away. He has appeared at the Cropedy Festival organized around Fairport, and as of 2007 was the Deputy Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire and a member of the Heritage Lottery Fund Committee for Scotland. ~ Bruce Eder
