Most of the tracks are as you would hear them performed live- although unfortunately without Mikes wonderful jokes.
However we have enhanced a few tracks by the addition of some other instruments- all played by Mike.
In accordance with Folk Police guidelines most of the material contained on this recording is miserable, but we have risked some lighter stuff.
Here are some soundbites~ with some random jottings by Sue.......
