Hard Rope & Silken Twine is the twelfth and final album released by The Incredible String Band. It was released in 1974. It was fitting that their final track Ithkos was 20 minutes of several compositions. These ranging from Greek roots, to their strongest genre, folk, then progressive rock, and ending with the addition of synthesizers. Such lengthy compositions were common for the band during their heyday. Hard Rope & Silken Twine. Listening to the Incredible String Band could either be a joyous or excruciating experience - sometimes both in the space of the same song, and this album is a prime example of the extremes they could reach. Here Mike Heron contributes the wonderful Make of Island, while Robin Williamson contributes Dreams of No Return with some delicious sitar work. Listen album. The Incredible String Band.
