Hi, I'd be interested in the source information for this set, was it vinyl or CD? Thanks..

By the way, I assume you know there is a second set, if that is available it would save me a lot of restoration work on vinyl discs 3 & 4

Hi Gonzo

This was ripped from the vinyl and yes, I do have the second set which I will put up here soon (as long as it is OK with Lizardson)

I'm beginning to think there's nothing redsuffolk and gonzo don't have! How about 'Walter Pardon, The Electric Ladyland Sessions' or 'Margaret Barry Sings Van Der Graaf Generator' ?????

Seriously, when you guys post I hit Rapidshare so fast I've broken two keyboards. (Well, semi-seriously.)

Many thanks, as always, for this one!

Oh good stuff, thanks, I hope its as good as the first volume, you did a very creditable job on that, I remember how long my Vol one took me.

My guess is Lizardson will be wringing his hands in impatience :))

I haven't been able to successfully decompress this gem after a couple of tries on different computers. Is it just me?

Thanks for the treasure all the same.

Is it possible to download the first (and second) "A Celebration of British Tunes". The links seem to have disappeared?
Thanks much.
