Fantastic post. I have the vinyl copy of this but it's lovely to have a digital copy as well. As an additional bit of trivia, Martin Simpson has also recorded Air for Maurice Ogg on his album The Bramble Briar. Alistair wrote this tune in commemoration of a mutual friend. Mo (Maurice) was from Coleby in Lincolnshire and is fondly remembered by all of us who were involved in the folk scene in Lincolnshire in the 70's and 80's.

Thanks Henry, I'll get to posting the album pretty soon as soon as I have organised the songs correctly, I was not far out by the way.

Ironbridge is definately on side 1 at least it is on my friends copy, unless there are two issues of course.. That would not surprise me at all..

Given time, once the track order is finally sorted, the album WILL be posted, as yet there is NO link because I am waiting for the rear cover to arrive, via email from the other side of MY world (Tasmania)

:-)) (My mum said all good things!)
