Another Christmas Present for all of you:

High Level Ranters - A Mile To Ride (1973)

Their 1973 album for Trailer Records (another 'Lost Album' - if you don't know look it up on Mudcat).
This is their classic line up of Gilfellon, Handle, Ross and Anderson. One of my favourite Ranters recordings.

(I had a little trouble ripping this one, dying computer and all that - there may be a couple of stutters in the recording - if so let me know and I'll redo the relevant tracks)

To go with the above:
I'm grateful for previous postings of Alistair Anderson albums - here is one of the others:

Alistair Anderson - Corby Crag (1978)

Please may I apologise now for the cover scans, they're not up to my usual standard since my big scanner died.

Request - has anyone got a good quality rip of 'Oak And Ash And Thorn' by Peter Bellamy - it's about the only Bellamy album I have missing. I may be able to post 'Merlin's Isle of Gramerye' soon, and 'Barrack Room Ballads' (I have three copies of the latter - one of which was still sealed and unplayed - but the pressing quality of all is attrocious) I'll get a good rip one day.

Coming soon: still working on - Martin Wyndham-Read - 'Ned Kelly And That Gang' - the definitive Australian bushranger album and Shetland Fiddlers (Leader LED2082) featuring 'Da Forty Fiddlers' and Aly Bain

Hi Reynardine

Top notch albums.

Would you have The High Level Ranters' "High Level" & "Four In A Bar" recordings?

Thanks Allis for the Bellamy - that just leaves 'Won't You Go My Way', the live one from Norwich to find.

And sorry gonzo - I bought my copy on release in 1970.

Reynardine, I have Peter Bellamy - Won't You Go My Way too, but just 2 tracks, side A and side B, no separate tracks..... If you want it, I can post it ;)

It's strange nobody here notices that Davey Graham passed away a few days ago

thanks Allis - no problem to split the tracks - I can possibly report it afterwards.

Not true, he got his own post and everything.

Insomnia is a wonderful thing here is a cleaned up version of 'Oak, Ash & Thorn' I did last night. There are still a few glitches and thumps but most of the scratches and noise has been removed and the clipped peaks restored.
