Just bought an in-print Oyster Band album, thanks to your introduction of the to me. Am real curious about this fist album of theirs, & see you posted it in October last year. I'm not finding a link; what am I missing?

Hi, I love the Oyster Band too and their stuff is just too hard to find these days. Whatever happened to Deserters or Holy Bandits? They were great. I have never even heard this early one though. Any way you coupld possibly re-upload it for us latecomers? Thanks in advance! Jerry
