Monseigneur (Switzerland,Progressive folk,1979?,private press)

Monseigneur (Switzerland, Progressive folk,1979?,private press )

If you like early Gryphon or Mike Oldfield (his short trad Celtic tunes),surely will love this album. Medieval and Celtic feel deeply...Obscure gem.
RYM says that it was released in 1979,but I'm not sure because the release year is not printed on the cover of the album.

ripped from the original album.
(Ripping seems to be successful )
