An Evening at the English Music Hall (1984)

Front Hall FHR-030

I'm a fan of The Copper Family, and John Roberts and Tony Barrand helped expose people to their repertoire of traditional songs. I recently found a nice thrift shop copy of Roberts & Barrand's 1971 album Spencer the Rover is Alive and Well, which is available on CD. I think I found this LP at the same time. Roberts or Barrand perform three of the tracks. 

The LP is a bit crackly. It was recorded live in 1974.

David Jones: Sam Hall

Tony Barrand: I'm Shy, Mary Ellen, I'm Shy
