18/11/14 – Mellow Candle – Silver Song – 1972

Song Of The Day

Mellow Candle PicMellow Candle were an Irish Progressive Acid Folk group that released one album, Swaddling Songs in 1972 and henceforth faded into obscurity. The line-up on this fascinating, rare and valuable album was Clodagh Simonds and Alison O’Donnell on vocals, Dave Williams on guitar, Frank Boylan on bass and William Murray on drums. When I played with All About Eve we covered Silver Song on the B-Side of the 12 inch version of Farewell Mr Sorrow (No.36 in the UK charts). To investigate the birth of Mellow Candle and what happened to the various members, see the link below.

Their music is melodic, mystical, folky, seventies – how can you resist?
