Milder To Mulder, Jack In The Can

I'm astonished that hardly anyone has downloaded either of the Longdancer albums - they're really very good (if you like early 70s UK soft-rock with acoustic guitars and nice harmonies).

Of course, little brother Barry was - and is - the more flambouyant of the Dransfield brothers and, when on form, could be dazzling and magical, but Robin was (is?) a fine singer and a very nice guitarist (with a beautiful little Martin acoustic), and his solo gigs tended to be more reliable affairs than his brother's. He contributed one original song (It's Dark In Here) to the classic Dransfield - Fiddler's Dream album, but this is his only solo album. It's absolutely bloody marvellous.

UPDATE (March 2008) - Hux Records are releasing this album on CD very soon so I've deleted the file. Go buy it - it's a real classic.

I haven't heard this & would like to check it out. Thanks.

I also want to thank you again for the Longdancer posts. I left a comment below but wasn't sure if you would see it way down there. I've had the first Longdancer on vinyl since it was released in the 70s but haven't been able to listen to it without a turntable. And I've never had the chance to hear the second album. Many thanks for putting these up. It will be good to hear Longdancer again.

It's the first time I've discovered your blog although I'm frequently searching the blogs. The first Longdancer album I found on a flea market many years ago which I bought because Ian Matthews was the producer. Didn't know that they made a second album which of course I like to download as I did the Lamb Lp which I don't know but is on my list of highly recommanded LPs. Hope you continue sharing such things.
Many thanks
Wolfgang
