This is a truly rare (overused word in vinyl circles) album, I have only seen one other copy on the market in the last couple of years. The band are also a bit of a mystery and I have not been able to find anything about their background, but I believe Gerry Beldon (the driving force behind the band) now runs a pub ‘The Exchange’ (with great real ales, not bad for a guy who studied theology) in North Shields and is still very active promoting folk evenings on a weekly + basis.
The album is great fun and with some excellent musicianship, plus great vocals by Gerry and well supported by Lynne Stevens (who also designed the cover).
All in all, a really good folk album, that will make you laugh, sing out loud and get your foot tapping. I love playing it and it is in fabulous condition. Recommended for folk fans.
