I listened to Nick sing songs from this album 23 years ago at the Dorchester folk club. Just started listening to it again, and still love it; esp Ripple Away. Wonderful.

Yeah,Kate-I still have the tape, and saw him at Gravesend FC in the 80's.
Great open tuning exponent and all round top folky.
Ripple away is indeed 'one on its' own'!
