One of the great duos of all time, Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbrick joined up in early spring 1966 as a performing unit and were an immediate hit becoming, overnight, the most popular group in the burgeoning folk club scene in Britain.
Martin was already the most important solo singer/guitarist on the folk scene with two successful albums for Fontana (with Dave joining him on several tracks). Dave was causing a sensation with his virtuoso fiddle playing, reconciling traditional instrumental styles with modern ideas and technique. Released in 1967, this was Martin's third album and it presented a fully integrated duo sound with Dave Swarbrick. As they grew in confidence and dexterity, Martin & Dave tested themselves with tricky rhythms and challenging songs, and the title track electrified the folk scene with its audacious syncopation. The album was most carefully planned and executed and remains an outstanding achievement.
