This album contains the who’s who of the British folk revival. Apart from Shirley herself are such luminaries as The Watersons, Richard Thompson, Maddy Prior, Simon Nicol, Ashley Hutchings (Shirley’s husband), Tim Renwick, Barry Dransfield, Nic Jones, Dave Mattacks, Dolly Collins amongst others. This is considered as a seminal album, as it was one of the first times that a traditional folk singer had gone ‘electric’, with most of Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span backing her.
