    If you like esoteric Steeleye Span songs check out their version of "To Know Him Is To Love Him" with David Bowie playing Sax.

    A very nice blend of contemporary and Scottish Folk. The disc is more contemporary. It's a great sub tester.

    Fantastic! I can live with warps if they play. Probably we all can. I sure would love to find this one on vinyl. The guitars are fairly quiet on the Green Linnet CD reissue. Of the three studios this one is my favorite, but I love them all. No complaints however. I'm lucky to have The First, and After Hours vinyl.

    I appreciate your sentiments. My heart too. I can't remember the last time I played Live In Dublin, and Damn!!! It's such a good live set. Christy's voice is, for lack of a better word, perfect (it's early). This is the Tara release and it's very well mic'ed.

    This one is new to me, but I know No More to the Dance with Dan Ar Braz. The Old Miner is a favorite of mine. This side two has paper scratches, but not terrible.

    This is the album where I discovered June Tabor. I stated buying her albums.

    Is that Bourbon with a Guinness back?

    Silly Sisters' No More to the Dance is where I first heard June, and Maddy for that matter. Found the CD at the library. I remember adding The Old Miner onto a mini disc. Didn't delve into Steeleye Span because I was so into the Traditional Irish at the time but that's about to change. My record store has one Steeleye Span's Original Masters two record set.

    12 year single malt Glenlivet with a Guinness chaser: a match made in heaven.

    1,000 thanks! I *hate* having to live w/ such noise as "Unknown Venue" @ my acrchives. I'll amend this immediately.

    PS: you wouldn't also happen to know the exact date of her performance in February 1971?
