    This is a much later version than the Shearwater recording - is it me or does the great man sound more energetic and lively the older he gets?

    He's a remarkable and individual guitarist - lord knows how he settled on that odd minor tuning of his. He's always had such a driving sense of rhythm underlying his arrangements...

    Yes. This is the version to listen to AFTER you hear the Shearwater piece--especially if you need to pick up a few of the lyrics.

    This is a much later recording than the masterpiece to be found on Shearwater, and nearly a minute longer.

    I remember listening to Martin when he was a young man, so earnest in bringing the past to light. For me it was an introduction to working class history, Sandy Denny,Maddy Prior ....Thanks Martin ;)
