Album Review

Sunbeam's Rain in the Leaves: The EPs, Vol. 1 collects 19 of Welshman Meic Stevens psych-folk singer's earliest tracks, most of which are culled from a series of EPs (Mike Stevens, Rhif 2, Mwg and Meic Stevens) recorded between 1967 and 1970.

The collection also boasts numerous rare photographs and an introduction written by Stevens.
