The Incredible String Band (sometimes abbreviated as ISB) were a British psychedelic folk band formed by Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron in Edinburgh in 1966. The band built a considerable following, especially in the British counterculture, notably with their albums The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion, The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, and Wee Tam and the Big Huge

Changing Horses is the fifth album by the Scottish psychedelic folk group, the Incredible String Band (ISB), and was released in November 1969 on Elektra Records (see 1969 in music). In addition, the album is seen as a transitional period in which the ISB shifted in musical textures, including early utilization of electric-based instruments.

The Incredible String Band. I Looked Up points fairly directly at the arguably self-indulgent side of the Incredible String Band (ISB) that had surfaced since the collective began congregating around Scientology in 1968. This incarnation of the ISB centered around the core unit of Mike Heron (cal), Robin Williamson (gimbri), and their respective girlfriends Rose Simpson (violin/bass/vocals), and Christina Licorice McKechnie (vocals).

The Incredible String Band played a variety of folk music, from British and Celtic-inspired odes to Appalachian mountain jams all with the enthusiasm of young, excited true believers. The inspired ambitions of the group’s two songwriters, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron, ensured that there would be few dry spots and 1970’s I Looked Up is another grand pleasure where the band’s dexterous instrumental approach keeps things intriguing from start to finish. Mike Heron’s Black Jack Davey begins the set at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

The Incredible String Band (album). The Incredible String Band is the debut album by the band of the same name, released in Britain in 1966 by record label Elektra. It is the only one of the band's albums to feature the original trio line-up with Clive Palmer, Robin Williamson and Mike Heron.

The Incredible String Band released I Looked Up - their seventh studio album - in 1970. Produced once again by the ever reliable Joe Boyd, this is a joy to listen to. The various instruments sound clear and loud in rich textures and the voices are just pure fun! Mike Heron contributes four songs and Robin Williamson two. Mike's tunes are shorter and a bit more to the point whereas Robin's are basically the opposite running over ten minutes long. Mike himself writes: "There is no doubt that I Looked Up is a transitional album - wandering rather than driven - but maybe the best String Band moments were when the compass was mislaid". While I wouldn't say this was their highest achievement, it should still manage to fascinate anyone who's into them.
