1 January 1989
Songs for Ships and Irons is a compilation album by the band Cardiacs, combining the whole of the Big Ship mini-album, the whole of the "There's Too Many Irons In The Fire" 12-inch single and the B-sides of the "Susannah's Still Alive" 12-inch single. It also includes a bonus song called "Everything is Easy," a longstanding live favorite not previously released as a studio recording. Some of the quiet talking in between tracks from the original Big Ship mini-album differs from the original release in having been edited/lowered in volume.
The album was out of print, but is available from the Cardiacs website and now on streaming services as of January 2021.
