Fledg'ling Records continues its ongoing series of Shirley Collins's early recordings on 7" vinyl EP with the release of some previously unreleased early recordings. These four spectral, magical performances were recorded by Alan Lomax in London on October 20, 1957. Collins sings two songs -- "Bonny Cuckoo" and "Bonny Labouring Boy" -- unaccompanied and with her own banjo accompaniment. These very rare recordings have been carefully remastered from the only known surviving acetate and are packaged in a front-laminated flipback sleeve with a beautifully illustrated inner bag showing rare Shirley Collins photographs and ephemera.
