Isolation Jams is proud to present : Spirit Of Clive – A tribute to the music of Clive Palmer & COB

Clive Palmer is a mystery. He was Incredible, he was Original, but he chose to not be Famous. His influence permeates through the British folk revival of the 1960s, the progressive “acid folk” of the 1970s and the experimental free-folk of the 1990s and 00s, yet few people know his name. A beatnik rather than a hippy, Clive chose total freedom over a career in the music industry and spent much of his later life quietly painting, building instruments and being free, in Cornwall and later in France. His high-profile friends such as Bert Jansch, John Martyn and Billy Connolly often spoke of Clive’s importance and influence, and his experimentation and restless creativity has influenced some of the most interesting musicians of today. This tribute album captures the spirit of Clive and highlights his continued and often overlooked influence. All money raised from this tribute album is going to the restoration of recently discovered rare recordings of Clive from the 1960s onwards, and to the production of a documentary about Clive Palmer.
