Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Recorded at Belfast's Sunflower Folk Club on October 20, 1978, this is an hour-long live set by the venerated British folk performer. All of the material is traditional in origin, save for one song, David Goulder's "The January Man." The quality is not quite "superb," as the liner notes state at one point -- you can hear some audience chatter and clinks, in addition to other minor imperfections -- but it's good enough, the equivalent of a decent, live late-'70s radio broadcast.
