Love the Corries, please upload anything you have of them. Does anyone have anything by the Liverpool folk group 'The Spinners' which I have been looking for for ages?

More of the Corries, please! I've been a fan for some years, but have only haphazardly found their albums. This series is wonderful, and the Heritage and Stovies lps would be great.

Thanks very much.

Any Chance of a complete set of Corries "Last of Barretts Privateers"

None of us have more than 4-5 tracks
from the album?

Hi again.
There appears to be a bit of a terminal cut-off problem with the following tracks on Volume 1:-
3 - Lads Among the Heather
5 - Hugh the Graeme
9 - Loch Tay Boat Song.
All three items obviously finish before the end and have then had two seconds of silence tacked on.
Any chance of a re-issue of these three tracks, please, oh, please?
Ah, the Corries - so good!

Thank you so much for these Corries albums ... just brilliant!

I noticed the same thing Paul noticed; some of the songs cut off early. This isn't that way on the actual lp is it? ... it's strange. Sometimes it is intentional on live records but this doesn't seem as though it is the case unless the recording is to focus on the story being told.

Is it possible for a test or re-up? It would be very welcome.

Thank you ...

I have actually found those three tracks elsewhere but at 160 rather than MJF's 192. Yes, they are really a fair bit longer. If MJF can't help, I will gladly post tje three tracks

Hi to Lizardson!
MJF has possibly not seen the earlier comments about the tracks 3, 5 and 9 of Volume 1 not being complete. I have also found that track 8 on the same album has some bad problems. I have located alternate tracks elsewhere but at 160kps. Those replacement tracks are available at:
for those who may wish to complete Volume 1. Hopefully, MJF may be able to come up with replacements at 192kps. I will leave it to your discretion. Regards

For Jane Doe
'Christmas in the Trenches" was written by John McCutcheon, and American, and issued on his album "Winter Solstice" in 1984. I have no ideas as to whether the Corries have performed it but I do know that Colcannon issued it on their "NineteenEightyEight" album.
