Trees' first album, The Garden of Jane Delawney was released in the spring of 1970 on CBS (S 63837). Whilst nearly every song on the album appears to be a traditional folk song, this is actually only the case for about half of them, the others having been penned for the album by front-man Bias Boshell. The title track is a particular good example of his apparent talent for writing songs that sounded like they had existed for hundreds of years as folk songs. The band released their second and last album, On the Shore, later the same year. Shortly after, Trees disbanded due to little commercial success.
The Trees are recommended to everyone wanted to investigate the folkish side of progressive rock and its acoustic side.
