About Me

My photo
Folk & Jazz fan, specialising in vinyl restoration. Although I would prefer to only post albums that I have paid for, or those of close friends, I am open to suggestions and offers of rare Folk items that need tender care and restoration, provided the supplier has the right of ownership of the physical item. NOT JUST an MP3 COPY of it. To give you an idea, I am prepared to restore vinyl belonging to another person, IF I receive a decent quality scan of the front, back and any relevant information that comes with the LP, preferably at least 2400 by 2400 quality, (600DPI scans for back) along with the sound files in FLAC format as waves are a bit too large to transfer. Then I will check their suitability for restoration. I try to maintain the requirement for a decent set of scans for each item, where possible, as I feel the music is incomplete without it. Sometimes this is just not possible as a lot of my stock came from broadcasting organisations that had their own heavy card sleeves, with information relevant to their prime function, that of providing the disc-jockies with basic details to pass on to listeners. I do wonder what happened to all the original artwork?

Many thanks for this great album. Love "The Keech I the Creel" ... only know one other version of this & that's "The Ride In The Creel" on Skin & Bone by two obscure musicians who go by the names of M.Carthy & D.Swarbrick! :-) Also what a great version of Bedlam Boys (or Mad Tom Of Bedlam). Certainly rivals both the Steeleye Span version & the "original" by Nic Jones & The Halliard. All in all a great post.

Oops, sorry Gonz,

Didn't notice your question till just now. Yes I have heard the MMP version - though not for sometime - as i recall it was quite "rocked up". Must admit, in this instance, I probably prefer the "folky" renditions as I think it suits the song better. Still full marks to MMP for covering a great song. :-)

All the best for now
