Seems to be a problem with Rapidshare in downloading this one. Hope it can be resolved for those of us who remember Mike Harding before he became, well, um, Mike Harding :-)

I haven't heard Mike Harding for years, so I don't really know why some people seem to have it in for him these days. I do remember him from the period when this album was released, however. He was very funny, a pretty good musician/singer and almost guaranteed to sell out most clubs. I always looked forward to seeing him.
Thanks for this post.

Thanks for the post and for fixing the link. Great album. Now that's the Mike Harding I remember and enjoyed: an entertaining interpreter of folk songs. I don't "have it in" for Mike Harding, just prefer what he was doing back then. But maybe we're both just getting old....
