Classic Carthy



This product is included in: The Carthy Chronicles
Seventeen Rare, Live and Classic tracks including ten previously un-released songs plus seven hard-to-find Martin Carthy performances, with Dave Swarbrick, Steeleye Span, Wilson Wood Carthy, Brass Monkey, The Watersons, Albion Band, John Kirkpatrick, Howard Evans and Richard Thompson - a choice and rare selection of those crucial Carthy songs most closely associated with him down the years. His earliest vinyl rarities, 'big' ballads he gave to Dylan and Paul Simon, newly-found concert tracks, 'lost' John Peel Show archives, and live recordings from Britain, France & the USA; each song has been weaving in and out Martin's repertoire throughout the past 40 years, and now deserves its place in this hour or so of - 'Classic Carthy'! 79 minutes
