First released in the UK 1971 by Philips Records 6382 022 (vinyl) and 7176 121 (cassette).

The first of many Carthy compilations was one of an eclectic assortment of “This is…” collections issued by Phillips in the early 1970s.

This collects six tracks each from ‘Byker Hill’ (1967) and ‘But Two Came By’ (1968) and although never re-issued, original vinyl copies (and the occasional cassette) are widely available on eBay.

Note: the last tracks on each side are transposed on the original cassette release.
