Winsor and Sullivan are joined by Alastair McDonald and Jeannie Steel (on nr. 10), and a double-bass player named Ian Campbell (not the same of the Folk Group). Out of all these names, we'll find Martin Winsor again singing on Peter Bellamy's double LP "The transports" (Free Reed, 1977), and A. McDonald with some solo albums. This album is not recorded live, although this is the atmosphere that surfaces from the furrows. I find weird that Redd Sullivan's unaccompanied singing is here defined as "unusual", it's probably the very first musical outing a man ever chanced to express back in the stone age, to use his voice as an instrument. The liner notes say some interesting things, a scan will sometime soon come...
