Picked up Action Packed by RT and Poor Man's Heaven by Seth Lakeman for £3 each at Guildford's HMV a week or so ago.

Great price Jules. I had the first 2 albums on vinyl, but still splashed out around £10, about a year ago for this set.

A lot of the Free Reed box sets (Fairport unConventional, Burning Bright, The Transports etc) seem to be going for £20 on their website. Works out at £5 each for the CDs and a free 13something page book!

Ooh thanks for that Ollie. Have been considering Burning Bright for a while. Any views on whether it is worthwhile?

Haven't really had a chance to listen to it much yet, but the book seems very good.

I found 10,000 Maniacs - Campfire Songs in a charity shop today for £2.  Its a bit tatty, but plays perfectly.  I'd been after it for a while, but never saw it going cheaply anywhere.  Obviously its the second disc that I wanted. So many excellent cover versions.

Mutton Birds - that shows excellent taste.

What an underrated band they were. Lead singer Don McGlashan still putting out superb music. Either of his solo CDs are superb, but not easy to find (or cheap) in the UK.

One year, back in the days when us punters were able to suggest and vote for Cropredy interval music, I succeeded in getting the MB's White Valiant played at Cropredy, and told Don, who was dead chuffed, as I was when I heard it coming over the PA..

Anyone investigating the Mutton Birds should check out the tracks White Valiant, A Thing Well Made, and Envy Of Angels. Awesome and rewarding music.

Even better. Picked it up in the CD tent at Cropredy for £20 which saved on the P&P.

It's a mixed bag, Gub, as all Free Reed sets are.  Trouble with the Ashley one for me is that there's too much from his later, less inspired years and not enough from his first decade or so.  Plus it's all jumbled up chronologically, so it doesn't flow right for me.  If you do get it, try and hunt down a copy of the bonus disc (probably my favourite disc of the set).

As mentioned above, I picked up a copy at Cropredy and have given it one listen so far. I agree that th theming and sequencing of the discs are a bit of a nonsense but it sounds like one of the better Free Read releases to my ears in as far as there is very liitle bootleg quality material and only half a dozen tracks that whose inclusion I would argue with.

I bought it mainly to get a sample of areas of Ashley's work that I am less familiar with to see what I might want to investigate in greater detail and have added at least 3 albums to my wanted list as a result.

Ah yes, managed to miss your second post on the subject!

I agree that the sound quality is above par....it's just that I think there should have been a greater emphasis on his golden age (circa 1967-80).

I suspect that is down to whatever Free Reed were able or could afford to license from that period. Perhaps the "unofficial" recordings were limited or of poor sound quality. I must admit though to a fondness for the All Stars/Dance Band/Albion Band output from the late 80s to the early 90s which is well represented.

Raghu Dixit - The Fire Within - £5

A most attractive "hybrid" of Indian melodies (and lyrics) and folk-rock.  Good live, too - I think he'd be good on a sunny afternoon at Cropredy.

Heard some of this on Radio 4 a while back, thought it was rather good & then promptly forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder, any more available?
