This is a classic album thankfully now available on CD. Possibly one of their best from two talented brothers. .

One of the very best British folk compilations from the seventies. Great to have it as a CD at last.

I thought I'd do a review as, of the three reviews here currently, one thinks it's a compilation (it's not), one is of a different album and one is enthusiastic and tells you nothing.

But they're all correct, it's brilliant.

It's traditional music practically throughout, and a typical Bill Leader production. That is, barring the not terribly impressive Tapestry, there's no double-tracking, it's just the two of them as they'd have played live. This means the fiddler is singing as he plays.

There's good fiddling, perfectly adequate guitar and good singing though neither has a stunning voice. You'd just love to be in a club listening to this.

There's a place in the notes where they mention being inspired by the Liege and Leif-era Fairport Convention. Wonderful though Liege and Leif is, its electric sound dates it to its time. This acoustic album is timeless.

The tracks are:
Rout of the Blues - Good fast recruiting song
Scarborough Fair - more clearly a riddle song then Paul Simon's saccharine version. It'll seem weird then you won't think any other will do.
English Medley - Stomping guitar/fiddle medley.
Waters of Tyne - An English Carrickfergus, again haunting.
Earl of Totnes - Not traditional, and for me a weak track. Fairly bounces along though.
Tapestry - A sort of fake mediaeval piece.
Trees they do grow high - really good version of the folk standard
A week before Easter - another compelling take on a standard, with a slightly odd tune.
A fair maid walking all in her Garden - decent enough folk piece.
Who's the fool now - Excellent drinking song mistranslated from Scots.

Amazing to listen again to music last heard quite a number of years ago, on modern technology, that can be heard on CD/PC/iPod - just wonderful! I have had the vinyl since it first came out - carefully looked after. But since the demise of my last record deck/tape player, have had only memories to sustain!! Roll on more! Waiting for "Rout of the Blues" - Please!!!
