After The Incredible String Band dissolved, Robin Williamson formed his Merry Band. He toured regularly with this troupe during the mid- to late-'70s. The band recorded several excellent albums, including this 1977 release and AMERICAN STONEHENGE. One of the band's identifying characteristics was the Celtic harp played by Sylvia Woods--Williamson himself would take up this instrument, recording whole sets devoted to its repertoire more than a decade later.
The ties with his former band are unmistakable (being as he was one of its two prime members), as one listen to "Mythic Times" will bear out. Throughout, the songs are full of history, magic, and even some healthy dollops of humor (primarily in the form of the band's cover of the 1948 song "The Maharajah of Mogador"). The album also contains one of Williamson's unheralded gems, "The Bells."
