Throughout most of the 1970s, Hot Vultures – Ian Anderson & Maggie Holland – were one of the hardest working duos on the UK and European folk circuits with their uniquely English speed-folk approach to blues, old-time country and a few choice modern songs. For their three albums and whenever possible live, they also recruited many other excellent musicians of the day, and later stars of the punk era were known to have been fans. Here’s the very best of their recorded history.
