Latest News From Topic Records - June 2017.

This month Topic Records focus on what is regarded to be one of the greatest acoustic folk albums of all time, Nic Jones Penguin Eggs. Released in June 1980 it was critically acclaimed and named "Folk Album of the Year" by Melody Maker.

Nic Jones was greatly influenced by Martin Carthy, whose percussive guitar style he adopted for his own, Nic first surfaced during the late 1960s as a member of the group the Halliard, mounting a solo career in 1970 with his debut album 'Ballads And Songs'. Nic continued to release solo records and appeared on albums for artists like Richard Thompson and June Tabor.

Sadly, Nic’s recording and performing career was tragically cut short when, returning home after a gig a Glossop Folk Festival in February 1982 he was involved in a serious traffic accident that left him in intensive care and hospitalised for some eight months. His injuries were such that he now only performs for his own pleasure. A truly tragic loss to the Folk World.

The rarity and beauty of Nic Jones recordings only add to their status as truly remarkable recordings.

Nic Jones will forever be a cornerstone in the history of English Folk.
