Still exploring the vein of English folk song from a rock aesthetic, this war horse of a band delivers a pleasant collection of traditional tunes (with only one original, "The Old Turf Fire"). While much of the edge has worn off their approach, becoming comically puckish on "The Tricks of London Town," there are several fine tunes here. Of particular note is "Lord Randall," which proves to be a blueprint for both Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A'Gonna Fall" and Cat Stevens' "Father and Son."
