Songs That Krishna Taught Us

Songs That Influenced The Incredible String Band

The String Band recorded few straight cover versions in their original career but a number of their own compositions contain 'inspired borrowing' from a variety of sources. From old time country, jug band and blues, to Indian ragas, Bahamian spirituals and of course British traditional folk tunes, it all went into the melting pot to produce something uniquely different. This page details these influences and tries to track down those original recordings. With thanks to 'Be Glad' and the members of the ISB Yahoo group.
