Waterson:Carthy

Topic Records TSCD475 (CD, UK, 1994)

Produced by Tony Engle;
Published by Topic Records Music;
Recorded at Panda Studio, North Dalton, Yorkshire;
Engineered by Ray Williams

This album is dedicated “to the Bampton Morris Men and the Goathland Plough Stots long sword team in general, and all the men and women in particular, who have held in trust our ever-changing, infinitely adaptable tradition—our real heritage—for no other reason than it was there.

Many of the singers mentioned in these notes can be heard on record—some on commercially released albums, tapes or CDs, and others in places like the sound library in Cecil Sharp House and they are well worth hunting out.”
