The British trio of Agincourt made one rare, privately pressed LP in 1970, Fly Away. It's nice second-tier British folk-rock, and though the adjective "haunting" is overused in description of this genre in general, songwriters Peter Howell and John Fernando really had that aspect down, with a greater pop savvy than most people working in the U.K. folk-rock field. Woman singer Lee Menelaus rounded out the trio, which smoothly integrated both male and female lead and background vocals. The album was reissued on CD in 1994, and the musicians would appear on releases by other groups in the late '60s and early '70s, including Alice Through the Looking Glass, Ithaca, and Tomorrow Come Some Day.
