Wow! This is rare! Really looking forward to hearing this - I always enjoy hearing anything by either or both of these Peggs. Their original songs are nearly always excellent, often quirky and at their best full of a brooding atmosphere. I also like their voices, which always seem to suit their material. Thanks again Redsuffolk!

P.S. If you like this you may want to go over to El Camaleon for an early Spriguns rarity - here's the link in case you want to post it, Lizardson

Mighty cool--the title song is so infectious one sings along by the final choruses on the first listen!...masterful simplicity--2 acoustics, 3-4 chords, 3 voices, a nice enigmatic story told [that reminds me a little of Eno's 'Here He Comes' off B&A Science

The Ochs cover is inspired too, drawing out the piece's traditional qualities and likely befuddling many a listener expecting straight-trad.

Hey freaky folkers! I was really psyched to see this posted, as I really dig the Mr. Fox stuff. But I'm having trouble getting it. I've tried to download it twice now......the folder comes through, but when I try to open it I get a msg saying "Folder could not be opened because you do not have sufficient access privileges." This has never happened before, and I've downloaded many of the gems Lizardson has posted. Anyone got a fix for me? Thanks!---EeeGee

Thank you much, Lizardson. You've made this hippy very very happy. Can't wait to give this a listen. If there were a Nobel Prize for Benevolent Use of Technology to Spread Joy & Preserve Endangered Counter-Cultures, surely you would win!
Warm wishes from NYC!---EeeGee

A really nice record....with more of a nod to Ol'Timey American folk & country than on the "official" Mr. Fox records. Thanks again, Lizardson, for the "special handling"---I didn't even know this album existed and I'm really happy for the occasion to hear it.

great to find this album on your blog. i bought it when it came out and my group of friends loved it. we were all into prog folk and folk rock then. even had our own band - the badger band, a kind of isb/forest thing. anyway i lost the lp years ago during a move.
i have downloaded the rar file but am now being asked to provide a password. can anyone tell me what it is please.
there is a fantastic selection of folky music on your blog and i must have owned or heard quite a lot of the lps in my dim and distant youth.
thanx
may the long time sun shine on you...
