Unknown to Mark Fry, the album Dreaming With Alice had been developing cult status over the ensuing three decades as a psychedelic folk classic, garnering acclaim from critics and a new generation of musicians as diverse as Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), Colleen and Plastic Crimewave. Fry was to discover this by chance in the early 2000s. Dreaming With Alice is included in Record Collector's Top 20 Strange Folk Albums (Strange Folk Revisited, August 2009).

Released in 1972 by Italian label IT Dischi, Dreaming With Alice was English expat Mark Fry's first and only LP, and an original copy will cost you more than a new transmission. A washed-out, extremely fuzzy mixing job is the album's most distinctive quality - the frayed sonic leaves each of Fry's honeyed melodies sounding as timeless and well-worn as a cut from a scratchy old blues 78. In "The Witch", the recording's rugged quality makes the song's hippy hand percussion and lysergic guitar all the trippier

A1Dreaming With Alice (Verse 1). A2The Witch. A3Dreaming With Alice (Verse 2). A4Song For Wilde. This album has been quite an obscurity already by the time of its release. Recorded by 19 year old Mark Fry for an Italian sub label of RCA it presented a beautifully naive kind of psychedelic folk similar to what the Incredible String Band laid down at the same time just a bit more straight forwarded. We saw originals in good condition go for about 1600 Euros already, therefore such a reissue is always welcome among fans of totally psyched out music, done by mostly acoustic instrumentation and vocals

Fry's singing is far more reticent than Donovan's, though not unattractive; at times it's a bit like hearing a further-out Al Stewart. As suitable as this music might be for dozing off to in a forest and the like, the songs - broken up by several half-minute or so interludes, all consisting of verses from "Dreaming with Alice" itself - aren't too substantial, functioning more as mood pieces than works that make a solid impact.
