RSD2018 EXCLUSIVE - Available to ORDER NOW


Released 21st April 2018.

The exclusive Record Store Day Edition pressed on WHITE 180g vinyl comes in brand new artwork in a gatefold sleeve with new sleeve notes contributed by Ken Hunt.

Originally recorded in 1973 the album, but didn't see the light of day till many years later in 1997. Anne had been pregnant and the recordings were made a few weeks before the birth of her second child and consequently the released was held back due to Anne unhappiness with her singing at the time.

Anne recalls " I Found the singing unsatisfactory. Indeed it was hard work at the time being so pregnant - hard to find sufficient breadth, and hard to play the bouzouki, with its' convex bellied back pressing into my convex bellied front, my arms seemed barely long enough to reach over to the strings and fingerboard".

The album was originally released by Fledg'ling Records and is the only instance of Anne recording together with a band. The band was a short lived outfit Ragged Robin put together by folk musician and singer songwriter Steve Ashley with Richard Byers, Brain Diprose and John Thompson.

Considered by many as 'a one of folks lost gems' Anne has influenced many of todays contemporary folk musicians, including Eliza Carthy and June Tabor.

‘If I hadn’t heard her, I’d have probably done something entirely different.’ June Tabor

Anne Briggs draws almost exclusively from the classic repertoire of British folk, her performances are both pure and unusual. Briggs was one of the few singers who could hold audiences’ attention recalls Linda Thompson who first met her in 1965. 'She was an intense singer with the ability to transfix an audience, it was almost hypnotic.
Ewan MacColl first heard Briggs’ remarkable voice and persuaded her to join the Centre 42 tour of 1962. There Briggs met MacColl’s broader minded comrade A.L. ‘Bert’ Lloyd who became her mentor. Briggs debut EP, The Hazards Of Love, was produced by Lloyd although Briggs never enjoyed recording and it was only though Lloyd’s coaxing that she contributed to his pioneering conceptual albums The Iron Muse and The Bird In The Bush. The first six, traditional, unaccompanied songs presented here are taken from these outstanding recordings made between 1963 and 1966 which display all the hallmarks of Anne Briggs artistry pure, fluid and with lawless timing.
