This is a collection of BBC Radio Concert Sessions in the early '70s. The tracks by Fairport Convention–and probably those by Steeleye Span too–were included in 2003 on the compilation The Harvest of Gold. Ian and Stephanie Rennie suggest on their Expletive Delighted website that the Fairport tracks are most likely from a “Sounds on Sunday” radio session recorded in early 1971 at the Royal Albert Hall. Steeleye Span's tracks are probably from BBC John Peel sessions recorded in 1972 and early 1973.

Isla Cameron's and Trevor Lucas' tracks are probably from the Far from the Madding Crowd soundtrack.
