Comments:

An interesting and somehow clear collection of songs and tunes. My favourites are "Rosemary Lane" and "The May Morning Dew" where Connie Dover's voice is the focus of the song (odd, because I haven't liked the solo work of hers I've heard—it seems too smooth for me). Anyway, this is recommended if you can find it. (Neile)
