Thank you very much for putting this up. Campbell was one of the big missing gaps in your archive. He is pretty darn good no?

I really LOVE Campbell's recordings and they are virtually unobtainable, which is a CRIME. You wouldn't by any chance have either 'Best Loved Songs og Bonnie Scotland' or 'Way Out West' ? I had these AGES ago on cheap versions I got in Woolworths, and the singing was amazing .......... SO under-rated.

Thanks so much for this .....

This was the first folk LP I ever bought, in 1966, and it is great to have a copy again. One problem, though: track 3 ("The bonny ship the Diamond") is NOT on this download: instead "The Gresford Disaster" is repeated (i.e. it appears both as track 3 and track 4)! Any chance of rectifying this?

GREAT blog!
