What a gorgeous, marvellous album!...
The version of the traditional folk classic "The Cuckoo" is the best I ever heard. Pentangle's version is fantastic, creative and even kinda... jazzy, I should say... Bert Jansch and many others did it fine too. But this one here is a thrill of beauty, vocal art, arrangement... It is soft and deep, it is... in two words: mighty fine! Maddy Prior!... May the Sound be with her forever and ever! And with you too CK. Thousand thanks!

Sorry to ask, but what's the meaning of the silence effect in the last track?
Do you know if she or any of the musicians, or sound engineer, or anyone ever explained it in tv interviews, press, internet...?

Thank you for sharing this excellent CD.

The (excessive long) silence in the last track is a strange way to give a bonus track (Drink to Me Only with Thine Eyes).

I heart it already on other CDs (e.g. Christy Moore`s 6 CD Box Set).
