Thanks again for this and the Roy Bailey, can't get enough of these two. In the present political climate maybe they will be making a comeback????

Well I certainly hope so, having seen them BOTH live, together and as separate acts, they are both very commanding personalities. Very likely could do a better job of entertaining the country than the present residents of the "Palaces of Gold" Whitehall & Washington !!

Only comment, though "Tim McGuire" is a brilliant song, a remnant from the early days with the "Three City Four", I still only need it ONCE, wonder what happened to "Why Does it" ?

Just wanted to say thanks for this album as I seemed to have forgot to leave a comment when I first grabbed it.

Palaces of Gold is such a 11/10 song.

Long days and pleasant nights!

Anonymous (10/10/08) didn't make clear that "Why Does It Have To Be Me?" is missing, and has been replaced by "Tim McGuire" - this is followed by "Tim McGuire". ??
Fortunately (for me) I needed only two tracks, damaged on my own copy of this superb album.

I've been looking for this - having worn out my copy decades ago - for ages. Ditto other albums by Leon Rosselson and Roy Bailey that have never been reissued on CD. Thanks so much for posting them! Now, if anyone could post a title or two by the Three City Four, that would be brilliant!
