The Moths were a folk group of students at Hull University in England who recorded an album of material on June 23, 1970, after being unexpectedly offered recording time in the university's theater building. The ten tracks they recorded were dominated by straightforward covers of songs by major and cult folk and folk-rock songwriters of the era, particularly Bert Jansch (four of whose songs were included), but also Bob Dylan, Tim Buckley, Clive Palmer, and David Ackles. Also on the record were a couple of originals by one of the group's singer-guitarists, John Ellis. Overall the group played passably well, but lacked the originality of their inspirations, though they gave even the covers of the American material a sober British slant, the guitars and bass complemented by flute and bongos. Only about a dozen copies were made, but the tracks were issued on the Heron's Daughter CD by Kissing Spell in 1994. ~ Richie Unterberger
