Armadillo Music

Ancient and Modern: Highlights of Half-a-Century is a testament to Alan Clayson's five decades of musical brilliance. Known as the charismatic frontman of Clayson and the Argonauts and a notable solo artist, both entities are characterized by their distinctive recorded output and stage acts that defy succinct description. This compilation showcases the breadth of Clayson's styles, from psychedelic gems like "Sol Nova" to much-covered folk tracks such as "The Moonlight Skater," co-written with Jim McCarty of the Yardbirds. Moreover, since 2011, he has been touring with Clayson Sings Chanson, a presentation aligned with the recent edition of his Jacques Brel biography, La Vie Bohème - just one among thirty books of which he is the author. This handpicked collection enhances his already remarkable discography, providing an excellent entry point for newcomers.
