Issued the same year as Swarbrick’s “Rags, Reels & Airs” album, this also showcases the duo’s instrumental repertoire, which formed a significant part of their live set but was never favourably represented on their albums.
No full CD release to date but “The Irish Washerwoman / The Ash Plant” and “The Banks” appear on various early 70s compilations and on the “Carthy Chronicles” box set. They also appear on the “Selections” CD alongside “Grey Daylight / Jenny’s Chickens”. “The Bee’s Wing” is on the 2011 “Essential” 2-CD compilation.
Re-issued on remastered 7″ vinyl with facsimile laminated outer sleeve and new illustrated inner sleeve for UK Record Store Day, 22 April 2017. Fledg’ling Records WING1007.
