DimeTravel 359 ::: Thanks to the original taper & trader, The Man In The Palace, who taped it for me & gave me the master tape. ::: This one got lost in the shuffle some years back & thankfully came to light again while checking for some Dransfield reseeds. One of the rare cases where I ended up with copies of 2 different master tapes, which was fortunate - this taper had recorded 2 more songs in the program. This is a session from the re-emergence of one of Britain's finest folk artists after some time off the scene. One hopes that Britain rewards it's artists honorably, for certainly this artist deserves to be recognised & considered a national treasure - a fine musician. Enjoy, share, give, spread peace. Yers truly, Knees
