I am often prompted by requests to "Do a restore" please so the choice of album is not in any special order, it might seem so, often doing one artists work leads to doing an associated album where that artist appears on that album, its purely random I assure you.
There is also no date ordering or Topic reference used to select an order, so this selection, again is purely on a whim that it might be a good idea to delve back a little into the previous decade, hence Bird in the Bush a collection of erotic folk songs from 1966. I guess at that time the World was awash with rock-n-Roll, the Beatles, the Stones etc, so this album probably got no recognition at the time, today it is still a classic.

I'm taking a short rest from the endless research, the scanning, the ripping, and hours of editing, to persue my other love.. (No Not you Gladys) but a bit of Jazz.

Wow. Just a lot of thanks. I've wished for this for a long time. It gives me a strange sense of completion...

I just discovered your blog a couple weeks ago. First of all, let me say thank you so much for the work you've put into it. A whole world opened up for me when I heard The Acoustic Folk Box a few months ago, and your site has been the perfect thing to allow me to delve deeper into british & celtic folk (most of which is quite hard to come by in the US). I think I'll start a blog soon to share the wonderful forgotten and undiscovered music that I know. IMO, you have the best music blog on the internet, along with Grown So Ugly. Thanks again.

Graphically, your blog design is very attractive and the music excelent. Many Thanks!
I would like to make a little request before leaving: "The Tale of Ale: The Story of Englishmen and its Beer". I once had it in a k7 and could never found it again.

Hi Gonzo - there appears to be a problem with your link. RS says its been manipulated and therefore invalid.
