The booklet is no longer available from Rapidshare. If someone could provide another link for it, I'd be grateful.

thanks so much for these, i've had problems with part 2 of Disc 1, so an alternative link for it would be most appreciated.

thanks again & Happy New Year!

Hi Danny! I keep checking back for the Martin Carthy box set, ever since you mentioned it. And I haven't seen you on the Net in the past week or so--perhaps a well-deserved vacation? I am grateful for all your hard work, and hope you are in good health.

Best wishes, Lisa H.

Sadly, as at today (7th Nov 2008), none of the links work. I love the popular folkies like Fairport & Pentangle, so was hoping to hear some Watersons, & this seems the best place to start. A repost would be very welcomed in light of all the positive comments above.
