When I Was A Freeport And You Were A Folk Supergroup
A 'folk supergroup' comprising Pete Coe, Chris Coe, Nic Jones and Tony Rose that only produced this one album. To my mind it is one half of a two-album set and I always think of it alongside the New Victory Band's 'One More Dance And Then' - but that album is available on CD and so I've only included a couple of tracks from it as a taster - go buy the original.
01 - The Tailor And The Tea Chest 02 - Astleys Ride & Up And Away 03 - Rose Of Allendale 04 - Hind Horn 05 - Herrings Head & Salmon Tails Up The Water 06 - Little Fishes 07 - Ladies, Don't Go Thieving 08 - Geordie 09 - Dragoon And The Lady & Soldier Soldier 10 - Adam Was A Poacher 11 - Hares On The Mountain 12 - Hunt The Hare 13 - Herper's Frolic + Bonny Kate (New Victory Band) 14 - Mamie May (New Victory Band)
These albums are available from Amazon as extremely limited and extremely expensive japanese imports - and as far as I know Nested and Mother's Spiritual were never actually released on CD so even those may be private rips from vinyl. So here are rips from my vinyl copies of those two albums, plus the complete double CD of the live 'Seasons Of Lights' CD which was available as a proper Japanese import but a) was *very* expensive and b) isn't any longer. The cut-down single CD version isn't available either. Not the best places to start if you're not a Nyro fan, but well worth having if you are.
