AllMusic Review by

Island 40, Vol. 3: 1968-1975 -- Acoustic Waves, the third installment in Island Record's celebration of their 40th anniverary, focuses on the folk-rock recordings they released on their "Pink Label" division. It's an excellent sampler of both Island and the state of folk-rock in the early '70s, containing classic tracks from the Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, John Martyn, Renaissance, Cat Stevens, Sandy Denny, Incredible String Band, Amazing Blondel, Richard & Linda Thompson and the Chieftains.
