This album by the LING family of Suffolk, is a collection of local songs, some traditional, some fishing orientated, some familiar ones: A few of the tracks have been presented on Folk compilations but as far as I know the complete album has never been released on CD.
NOW the reason I needed your help! As you will have seen on previous postings, I like to present not only the music, but scans of the original vinyl albums together with the notes provided. This album is, like a lot of mine, an ex- radio station library album, as such it was supplied in a plain brown library sleeve with the vital information required for a radio presentation, track names, timing and other broadcasting types of information.
Thanks to Reinhard I now have some really good scans of this album so can finish off the music cleaning and complete the posting.

As with most of my "EX-Radio" LP's they have seen considerable use and some worn to a point that they play better when converted to mono. I only do this on the worse tracks, as although these are solo singers, there is some ambience so where possible I leave them as stereo.
Side two has taken some time to upload, I lost my broadband cable connection temporarily so this was uploaded via a 3G USB cellular modem (somewhat slowly)
