3CD compilation focussing on the mid-60s haunt of the emergent folk and blues scene in London. Featuring a host of big names who visited the venue many of whom went on to national success. Les Cousins was a folk and blues club in the basement of a restaurant in Greek Street, in London's Soho, which became a home and the epicentre for the folk revival of the mid-1960s, a venue where musicians met and learnt from each other. As such, it was influential in the careers of so many pioneers - Al Stewart, Davey Graham, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Sandy Denny, John Martyn, Alexis Korner, Strawbs, Roy Harper, Paul Simon and many others. The club's vital importance to that scene is now commemorated with a triple-CD featuring folk's illuminati from that period, as well as more obscure names who trod the boards in that Greek Street basement, with some tracks gracing CD for the first time. Compiled and annotated by folk historian and fRoots editor/publisher Ian Anderson, who also played at the venue, 'Les Cousins' pays fitting tribute to a unique time and place in UK folk music history.
