"Magic 2nd album by Southampton, UK based folk rock band. Celtic/British folk interwoven with 60's/70's psych rock, resulting in a dreamlike atmosphere which invites you to a sojourn among the mystic ruins of Olde England. Timeless album in the spirit of Trees, Fairport Convention, Stone Angel, at times even Jethro Tull.... Mary Jane was formed in 1993 by Paul Alan Taylor (acoustic, electric & 12-string guitars, banjo, bouzar)around the considerable feminine vocal talents of Jo Quinn (also flute, flageolets, fiddle) - both are also active in Zaney Janey. Martin Griffin (bass) and Nick B. Davies (drums, percussion) complete the band. "The Gates of Silent Memory" also features guest appearances from Chris Lilley (fiddle, viola) and Gail Holliman (vocals). "The Gates of Silent Memory", entitled after a drawing by Edwardian artist Austin Osman Spare, contains both traditional English folk songs ("Boys of Bedlam", "The Silver Whistle", "Janey Picking Cockles", "Oxford City" in a more complex version than on the "Isle of Wight" EP) and original material written by Paul and Jo, successfully fusing the inherent musical styles. Compared with the debut "Hazy Days" Mary Jane's 2nd album is distinguished by its ethereal atmosphere and documents the band's continuing drive towards an unpretentious, distinctly British sound."
