This was Bob Stewart’s second album and contains a selection of English and American folk songs collected by Cecil Sharp. The American songs were collected in the Appalachians and sound more English than the English folksongs. The majority of songs are great, but there are lots of tragic tales, especially ‘Long Lankin’ and ‘Jackson and Johnson’, but the music is superb from start to finish. A great, almost forgotten album, which is a must for serious folk collectors.
