Biography:
Meic Stevens is a Welsh singer-songwriter often referred to as the “Welsh Bob Dylan.” While also compared to Syd Barrett and Donovan, Stevens’ songs have a mystical, psychedelic flavor and are typically sung in Welsh. He was discovered by DJ Jimmy Savile in a Manchester folk pub in 1965 which led to him recording his first Decca Records single with Led Zeppelin bassist, John Paul Jones arranging. From 1967-69 he recorded a series of now very rare Welsh-language picture sleeve EPs made for local labels such as Sain and Wren Records. He performed regularly around Britain during the 1960s, playing on recording sessions such as Gary Farr’s debut album for the Marmalade label. Even though a majority of his work is sung in Welsh, he made an English language album for Warner Bros. Records in 1970, entitled Outlander which is one of ROG’s featured voting titles this month. If voted in, the deluxe ROG version would expand the album to a 2LP set and feature the eight previously unreleased outtakes from the Outlander sessions, the non-LP single “Blue Sleep” as well as presenting “Rowena” in a longer, full version, all of which were originally included in the limited Rhino Handmade CD edition of the album. Today, Stevens’ psych-folk influenced can be heard in contemporary Welsh groups such as Super Furry Animals and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci.
