Hi Richard
Thanks for your honest and open feedback.
No, each of these tracks comes from a seperate source and each has different producers (or self produced).
It's quite astonishing what people like and dislike. Without naming names, the feedback has been very varied so far, with certain artists being praised by some, but disliked by others. Conversely the ones who are disliked by one listener will be loved by another!

From the feedback received so far, the most popular artists would appear to be the Scots, Dave Gibb and Ivan Drever, both of whom have good followings from their numerous LPs and CDs. Running a close second come mudcatters Alan Moorhouse and Eddie Walker.

The odd thing though is that while all the artists are singer songwriters, some are accepted for being "folk" while others are not. The strangest part of this old chestnut is that no two parties agree what is or isnt folk!

Anyway. I'd welcome any other thoughts or feedback before the compilation is replaced by a new one with a different theme.
