It always impressed me how good Steve was on both keyboards and guitar

There's a corker of a guitar solo on this gem

It's great to have the taste buds back after so long

When everything tasted metallic why bother…?!

John Barleycorn - there's been some great versions of this and this one is superb

Although the songs have very different soundscapes, the continuity of the album is superb.

Let me know

I thought of using this in the Folk Cup - I am glad I didn't I think many of those voting wouldn't 'get it'

The Jethro Tull track offered up by Mike Boom got slaughtered

Many have a different view on folk than me....

Ah, just spotted it. I was quite happy to hear T2 again - I've played it a few times since, another perfect album.


Yes, Planxty are great, like Moving Hearts very much too. Shall have a think about some albums - the first Renbourn & Grossman album is a gem - I'd have entered Spirit Level into the cup.

Spotify have a different version to my CD

Unbelievably there are a couple of rubbish tracks between sides 1 and 2 of the LP

Can you believe that? Whatever was somebody thinking?

Anyway, the Spotify version has soem live stuff which I have never heard.

Fancy giving a couple of the tracks a go? [Starting with Medicated Goo?}
