Complete your Mellow Candle collection. Do not cry, for all your leaden tears graced a lorded man whose gift was all too free, he came to fall upon a faithless smile, leaning eyes towards the clay. The songs have a feeling of fairytales about them and Mellow Candle is a troupe of medieval bards telling fabulous stories to the gorgeous music. Tell me, show me, teach me where you've been did you see shadows of unicorns? Did you wear laurels or a crown of thorns?

Swaddling Songs is a music studio album recording by MELLOW CANDLE (Prog Folk/Progressive Rock) released in 1972 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Too bad Mellow Candle weren’t able to make more of a go of things back then, but this album leaves an impressive and lasting legacy. Highly recommended to prog folk fans for sure.
According to the booklet that comes with the 2008 reissue CD, Mellow Candle’s only album, Swaddling Songs, was at one point the single most sought after major label folk rarity of all time. While these booklets can be expected to exaggerate (for example, later on in that same paragraph it calls the album ‘a genuine masterpiece’ which could be considered a slight exaggeration perhaps) this is probably true. On its release in 1972 Swaddling Songs was totally ignored.
