Squeezebox maestro John Kirkpatrick is one of the giants of the British folk scene. Over the years, he has appeared on hundreds of recordings, but seldom has he had the opportunity to record a whole album of his original compositions. The Dance Of The Demon Daffodils is just that -- a splendid collection of his tunes recorded by the master, using a 3-row British chromatic button accordion, 1 and 2 row melodeons, and an Anglo concertina. "I've been making up tunes for almost as long as I've been playing them. It's impossible to explain why that should happen, but it just does. Quite a few of my own compositions have been recorded over the years, not only by me." At the last count, John had composed over 130 tunes, and this album showcases 32 of his very best. Contains extensive, detailed sleevenotes, full of Mr. Kirkpatrick's quirky humor; housed in a stylish digifile package.
