The Incredible String Band can be seen as the ultimate hippie band of the 1960s, with their long hair, flowery clothes, whimsical mysticism, and fanciful music. But time has also proven that their inventive music and quirky virtuosity remain fresh, surprising, and ear-opening--maybe even mind-expanding! The unusual songs of Robin Williamson and Mike Heron may be a product of their time, but their spirit of daring and playfulness make them timeless. Host David Garland offers a range of the Incredible String Band's wonderful work, including a song recorded during their 2004 Spinning On Air session.
