Various Artists

World Of Folk (Argo SPA-A 132) 1971



An excellent collection of tracks from the Argo Catalogue. Just reading the list of unavailable albums on the back cover is enough to make one weep. In the 1970s we had a job lot of this album to use as raffle prizes in our folk club, many people ended up with several copies over the course of a year.

Side 1:
1. The Yetties - Broadside Man
2. The Young Tradition & Dolly Collins - Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day
3. The Clutha - Border Widow's Lament
4. Ian Campbell - Canny Lad The Miner
5. Peggy Seeger - Swapping Song
6. Jon Raven - Kate Of Coalbrookdale
7. Marie Little - Twa Corbies

Side 2:
1. Ewan MacColl - Net Hauling Song
2. Barry Skinner - Turpin Hero
3. Liz Dyer & Dave Goulder - Black Is The Colour
4. The Druids - Boar's Head Carol
5. Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner - Song Of Choice
6. Gerry Fox - Hot Stuff
7. Cyril Tawney - The Oggie Man

Until 1995 this was the only record to feature a track from the unreleased Young Tradition/Shirley & Dolly Collins album, The Holly Bears A Crown - this is now available from Fledgling Records.

Request - Does anyone have a copy of Jon Raven - Kate Of Coalbrookdale?

I've just purchased a copy of "World of Folk Vol. 2" on eBay. If there's interest, I can upload.
