The Moths were a folk band of learners at Hull School in Britain who recorded an album of materials on June 23, 1970, after being unexpectedly offered saving amount of time in the university’s theater building. The ten monitors they recorded had been dominated by straightforward addresses of music by main and cult folk and folk-rock songwriters from the period, especially Bert Jansch (four of whose music had been included), but also Bob Dylan, Tim Buckley, Clive Palmer, and David Ackles. Also in the record had been several originals by among the group’s singer-guitarists, John Ellis. Overall the group performed passably well, but lacked the originality of their inspirations, though they provided even the addresses from the American materials a sober United kingdom slant, the guitars and bass complemented by flute and bongos. No more than twelve copies had been made, however the monitors had been issued in the Heron’s Daughter Compact disc by Kissing Spell in 1994.
