This is the most amazing thing ever. I've looked literally for YEARS to try to find anything by Magpie Lane. I know they have released several albums (some out of print) and never thought I would hear any of them. They are impossible to find in my country.
Thank you so very much for this album. It's made my summer.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!!

Perhaps I hope to find more of their releases because I really LOVE what I've heard so far.

Magpie Lane is not easy to find.
Soon I will post the album "Six for Gold"

Like this music? With the possible exception of "Jack-in-the-Green" all of these Magpie Lane CDs - and a more recent release, "Knock at the Knocker, Ring at the Bell" - are available from

Magpie Lane - great folk and wonderful example for the followers of the 60s and 70s folkies!
