The Watersons were an English folk group from Hull, Yorkshire. They performed mainly traditional songs with little or no accompaniment. Their distinctive sound came from their closely woven harmonies. The band's original members were Norma, Mike, and Elaine known as Lal Waterson, with their cousin John Harrison from Kingston High School. They had a skiffle band in the early 1960s but moved on to playing more traditional material.

Thank heavens this classic album by The Watersons is still in print in a decent quality C. It was the return of the Watersons to recording, after a period of "retirement", personnel changes and solo projects (some of which were. no, I'm too polite!), and the new line-up included Martin Carthy.

The Watersons: The Watersons All tracks included on this album formed part of the Early Days CD The Watersons: A Yorkshire Garland Ten of the original fourteen tracks formed part of the Early Days CD Lal & Mike Waterson: Bright Phoebus: Songs by Lal & Mike Waterson Briefly reissued on CD in 2000

Early Days is a compilation album of recordings by The Watersons, released in 1994. These recordings come from New Voices (an anthology) (1965), The Watersons (1966) and A Yorkshire Garland (1966). There is a guitar on tracks 8, 10 and 11. Although it seems totally unremarkable now, at the time these recordings were made, The Watersons looked radical. Their appearance on stage was totally blue-collar and without any kind of showmanship.

Sleeve Notes

The Watersons' enviable combination of dark good looks, ringing voices, abundant charm and immense vitality have already given them the kind of star status within the folk song revival which is usually reserved for pop singers outside it. They are unpretentious and unconventional stars, taking television appearances, top billing at concerts and ovations at clubs in their stride. Their gypsyish zestfulness is worlds away from the strictly commercial glamour of the world of pop music: but their own glamour is all the more potent since it is the product of personality rather than publicity. There are four in the group, Michael, Norma and Elaine Waterson (two sisters and a brother), and their second cousin, John Harrison. Michael Waterson sings lead most often and they all come in on choruses with their own hand crafted harmonies, an immediate recognisable and uniquely distinctive group sound which is uninhibited, spontaneous seeming and rich in texture.

The Watersons sing songs from all over the country but pay special attention to those collected in their native East Yorkshire. They live in Hull, the great seaport beside the Humber that also produced one of our greatest poets, Andrew Marvell; and in Hull they have for some years run their famous club, Folk Union One.

They already have one LP on Topic, the widely praised collection of ritual and ceremonial songs Frost and Fire, and are also featured on the anthology record New Voices. They are no longer new voices but familiar and feted ones, singing on this new record, songs they have made particularly their own.
