This was Shirley Collins' first full length album, from 1959, recorded in London by Alan Lomax and Peter Kennedy and originally released on the prestigious American Folkways label. For this re-issue the album has been completely remastered from the original tapes and completely repackaged.

The choice of repertoire and arrangements capture a turning moment in the English folk song revival of the 1950s, and in the recording career of one of England's finest interpreters of traditional song. Shirley Collins has long been regarded as one of England's most distinctive and acclaimed folk voices - exploring and defining the possibilities of the English folksong revival.
