Notes and Acknowledgements

Non-essential albums, e.g. Various Artists compilations with Martin Carthy tracks easily available elsewhere, are listed in grey instead of black.

Many thanks above all to David Suff, who compiled the discography up to 1993 that was published in the notes to Rigs of the Time (1998). His own Martin Carthy discography is on the Web. Thanks also to Musikfolk. A fresh burst of activity followed the release of The Carthy Chronicles in 2001, with their extensive notes and discographies by Neil Wayne, Nigel Schofield and Colin Irwin (who also acknowledge David Suff’s work). And thanks, as always, to Wolfgang Hell. Many thanks also to Ivan Coates, who sent a large number of corrections May 2001, and to Arie Euwijk. Thanks also to Bob Hudson, a stalwart supporter of this site.
