Unavoidable this week, really. A track which did much to fire my enthusiasm for English folk music. Almost a hit single in 1978 and – implausible but true – a Simon Bates Record Of The Week at the time (that outbreak of good taste did not last long). In the chorus is a Who’s Who of UK folk music. Facebook friend, Graeme Taylor, plays some wonderful lead guitar on it too. Lead vocal by the great John Tams.
