In 1972, Barry Dransfield recorded this debut solo album. A real delight from start to finish, it features an array of traditional songs arranged by Barry, some original ones and some fantastic covers from people like Michael Hurley ("The Werewolf") and David Ackles ("Be My Friend"). Sadly, the album was deleted just after nine months from its initial release; because it was released on the short-lived Polydor sub-label Folk Mill. Needless to say, the album has become a true rarity and a collector's item since then. Record Hunter voted it "the rarest folk album" and the Tapestry Of Delights book described it as "along with Vashti Bunyan's Just A Diamond Day, this debut solo album, full of enchanting folk, is one of the two most sought after major label folk albums." This deluxe reissue is pressed on thick, HQ vinyl and housed in a hard carton cover with an insert with liner notes. A stunning release in Guerssen's no-filler catalog. Absolutely indispensable.
