Not jazz I know but long OP. I thought there might be some interest since I was burning it to CD for a friend. Links coming soon. Bill

I'd love to hear it! I've never heard of Bailey or Rosselson, but Carthy and Kirkpatrick are both favorites of mine. I've never this record either.

This is a really really great record which was Melody maker's pick the year it was released. All the main people who made it are still alive and gigging - why not buy the tracks at http://www.leonrosselson.co.uk/records.html
