Man, I'll tell you what!! This is one helluva a CD. I am just sitting here working away and I put it on, it knocks me out more now than when I started this thread over 4 years ago. You just simply cannot call yourself a true fan of trad music and unaccompanied singing until you have this one. It starts out with the amazing voice of Jeannie Robertson and goes from there.

Absolutely a must have. Folks, give yourself a treat and get a copy of this from Folk Legacy. This CD is a collection of field recordings that Sandy Paton, Lee Haggerty, and others collected in the 50's and 60's. Phenomenal stuff!!! Right now I am listening to Jeannie Robertson of Edinburgh, sing Twa Brothers. Gives me chills hearing that magnificent voice.

All the best,

Mick
