Released by Fledg'ling in 2006, this is a powerful collection of historic recordings from Shirley & Dolly Collins. The recordings of Shirley Collins hold a pivotal place in the English folk song revival of the 1960s and 1970s. Through an impressive handful of remarkable LPs -- Folk Roots, New Routes; Anthems in Eden; Love, Death and the Lady; No Roses and For As Many As Will, Shirley always married a deep love of the songs handed down by rural laboring people with beautiful contemporary arrangements. Those recorded with Dolly Collins are especially treasured. Gathered here are some magical performances by Shirley and Dolly Collins recorded in concert in the late 1970s and a handful of demo recordings from the 1960s. Deluxe digipack with full-color large format booklet. Extensive sleevenotes by Shirley Collins.
