I bought this, but I take the opportunity to say that imo it is the single best recording in English folk music.

A historic duet this is!!! This is something all folk lovers should listen to.

Without a doubt, anybody with a passing interest in english folk music MUST listen to this album. Maddy and June's voices blend, yet remain distinct. It doesn't get any better than this.
