Various Artists - Garden of Delights (2006)

London's hip DJs - in particular those involved with the Big Chill, who admittedly do have a background in fine alternative music with the Cooking Vinyl label - have suddenly discovered folk music and folk rock and this compilation features the work of several seminal artists such as Duncan Browne, the Dransfields, Donovan, Pentangle, Shelagh McDonald, Decameron, Gryphon, Caravan (OK, not folk in the slightest but still good), Davey Graham, Shirley Collins, Fotheringay, Dave Swarbrick and Prelude (with their timeless cover of Neil Young's "After The Goldrush") A good place to start investigating the genre everyone is talking about.
