Until a crippling accident in the '80s, Jones was an integral part of the second British folk revival that included artists like the Oyster Band and Pete Morton. PENGUIN EGGS, his only domestically available recording, shows Jones to be a staunch traditionalist, but he comes off as anything but stodgy. Rather, he plumbs the emotional depths of traditional folk songs like "The Drowned Lovers" and "Courting is a Pleasure" for all they're worth. His steady, forceful guitar worked--slightly indebted to Martin Carthy--and his earnest but humble vocal style invest these timeless tunes with just the right touch of modern personality. Though he was never less than faithful to the original spirit of these songs, it's easy to see why he was viewed as a breath of fresh air in the British folk world.
