*** Robin introduces this song with it's proper title (which i can't quite make out,
but from a few articles i remember reading in the past, 'Whether Near or Far' seems
to be the title the song went under -it may be incorrect though).
An audience recording that came into my hands a few years ago (no idea who recorded
the show though), which i cleaned up a bit. It is a touch hissy in places, but certainly (in my opinion anyway) doesn't spoil ones enjoyment of the gig.
Both Robin & Bina left the String Band shortly after this tour & so didn't join the
rest of the group, when they eventually did the tour of America, which Robin mentions is possibly on the cards the following year.
I really liked this version of the band (unlike some folk) & saw them four or five times
during this period. A bit shambolic at times perhaps, but still Great!!!
As with most of my bootlegs, i acquired them from loads of different places such as
blogs, bootleg sites & from purchasing them in shady markets (before i had use of the internet & knew anything about torrents & file sharing) & i really can't tell where
every individual recording came from.
so in advance: a thousand apologies to any of the tapers or individuals who originally placed these recordings up for all of us to lavish our love upon.
thank you very much for sharing, i only mean to do the same & take no credit
for these bootlegs being born into our collective lap.
