Albion Band members with actors and Bridgewater Brass Ensemble in Tales From the Towpath - the story of the building of the Manchester Ship Canal in England - BBC Radio 2 1999
FM Tuner/Sony MZ-R90/Sonic Stage to wav/adobe audition >Tracks> Flac 8
There is some information here about the building of this project at a time when health and safety was not considered!
I don't have a broadcast date for this in 1999, so no clever clogs please! The programme makers Smooth Operations do not provide broadcast dates on their website.
What is important is that this Albion Band line up existed for this production only, as the Albions had returned to being electric a couple of years before, Chris & Julie being a duo in their own right.
