Yes lamarca, the 70's were the golden age for English folk music. At that time I was perversly collecting folkmusic USA, importing Stinson records etc and never bought a single LP of the artists you mention. I only discovered them in the 90's when I heard Nic Jones, Jon Raven etc on programmes like "Folk on Two" on BBC radio. By then the LP's had long gone. Broadside still exists and let's hope Jon Raven will listen to my pleadings and rerelease them (he seems to have started) but Leader/Trailer is another story often seen on the Mudcat and in the folk music press. Thank goodness for Topic! Dr John.
