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. Cover of The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion, designed by The Fool. In November 1966 Heron and Williamson embarked on a short UK tour, supporting Tom Paxton and Judy Collins. In early 1967, they performed regularly at London clubs, including Les Cousins. Joe Boyd became the group's manager as well as producer and secured a place for them at the Newport Folk Festival, on a bill with Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen.

The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion. The 5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion is the second album by the Scottish psychedelic folk group, The Incredible String Band (ISB), and was released in July 1967 on Elektra Records (see 1967 in music). The album was recorded following the reformation of the band as a duo consisting of Robin Williamson and Mike Heron. The Incredibles didn’t really hit their stride until The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter a few years later, IMHO, but The 5000 Spirits is still pretty great. These magical Scots, as critic Robert Christgau called them, were among the first folk musicians to connect with non-European trad music (Bahamas, North Africa); unlike a lot of acoustic singer-songwriters from that era, they don’t seem the least bit dated or underpowered fifty-odd years later.

The Incredible String Band saw founding member Clive Palmer depart before this release on a journey of personal discovery in India (and later to form both the Famous Jug Band and . The album was originally released by Elektra Records in 1967. The music on the album is acoustic psychadelic folk with some progressive elements.

Falling somewhere between Bob Dylan and the Velvet Underground, the Incredible String Band are one of many psychedelic-tinged bands from the hippie-era of the late sixties whose legacy has been mainly overshadowed by their peers. Combining the folk and acoustic mannerisms of early Dylan with worldly and experimental instrumentation, the Incredible String Band were no doubt the wallpaper of many drug-inspired revelations during the height of their popularity. is a deceptively simple album to listen to, with most of the songs comprised on the interplay between, you guessed it, string-based instruments. The most prevalent instruments are the undeniably hippie-styled acoustic guitar and sitar, but also more unique sounds, including the oud and the sinter, as well as the flute and piano.

In 1967, Joe Boyd had signed the Incredible String Band, who were then down to Robin Williamson, Mike Heron, and Licorice McKechnie, to Elektra. The 5000 Spirits or Layers of the Onion had been crafted in a cottage in Glasgow, but Boyd wanted a proper recording studio to get it on tape. He chose engineer John Wood's Chelsea studio for the sessions
