5.0 out of 5 stars Reeeaally Lovely
This is her first two albums, Sweet England (1959) and False True Lovers (1960) plus four extra songs.

Simple, charming arrangements of mainly English folk songs mostly accompanied with single banjo.

Similar to the Maddy Prior/Tim Hart albums from a decade later but less polished and with the gentle innocence and more 'homely' frailty of Shirley...

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of folk History.

Lovely if you like this sort of thing.

Which I do.
