Constantly active in some form or other since the late ’60s, his latest release, The Riot of Spring and Other Historical Dramas, Large and Small, stands as an alternative to the more comprehensive 4CD set Burning Bright but takes on a different slant in the common theme of the selection of songs therein.
Spanning the breadth of his career, the sixteen songs (plus the pivotal title track) all capture darker moments, battles, the demise of industry, unfulfilled dreams and the usual folk topics of murder and lost love. Of course, many of the incarnations of Ashley’s bands and collectives are represented, yet all seem to play a supporting role to the title track, itself inspired by a TV drama of the first ever performance of The Rite Of Spring in 1913.
