Streamline Train

A cover of the first single I (we) ever bought. It was a 78. We chipped in together to raise the necessary 7 shillings and sixpence. Ken Colyers Skiffle group. In 1957 if I remember rightly. Age shall not wither them.

Teenagery

Recorded onto an audio cassette in about 1982 from a radio/cassette player with built-in mic. As a bit of a laugh between recording our more earnest efforts at Irish folkmusic (posted earlier here).The Early Puritans we called ourselves up there in Stockholm. Does it count as a September offering?

8 More Miles to Louisville

More "americana" from that woodshed in Sweden. Recorded on a battered radio/cassette player in 1984(?) so its low fi. We called ourselves The Early Puritans on the occasions we actually got paid for a gig.

Mrs McGrath

More of the woes caused by foreign wars in this song from the woodshed tape (Sweden 1984.) "By heaven I'll make them rue the day when they took the legs from a child of mine" The Early Puritans at it again with an Irish song. Singer Dave Scott is Irish. Other singer Jim Donovan though is american

Bonny Light Horseman

Another song from that Swedish woodshed tape. This I dont know the origin of. But the sentiments again appealed to us. The pain caused by Foreign Wars. Still relevant?

For a' that

An old song. Written by Robert burns in 1795. Recorded by my old acoustic band, The Early Puritans in Sweden 1984 on a radio/cassette player with built in microphones. One take. Found the tape in the woodshed this summer. Lo fi.

Shadows & Frost

Seasonal melancholia from the Stockholm archipelago. Not a guitar in sight. Well they are in sight - but not in sound. They are due on the next track. Biding their time in the shadows.

Sister in the USA

12 bar autobiography. From that classroom in Stockholm. Every word is true. But the harp is in a minor key.
