This is a broad ranging collection released on Topic’s budget offshoot label which takes in tracks from solo, duo and ensemble releases. The sleeve credits previously unreleased instrumental ‘Banks of the Nile’ as being from Carthy’s forthcoming album, but it ultimately failed to appear on 2004’s ‘Waiting For Angels’ (see this blog entry for more details).
