Sleeve Notes:

This really is a West Country record. There's never been one like it; songs like Trevor Crozier's 'Dorset is beautiful' and Cyril Tawneys 'Five Foot Flirt' - songs of the Somerset villages, like Kevin Sheldon's 'The Charlton Mackerell Jug Band' and Adge's 'In the Haymaking time', and of course several in the unique Bristol dialect. No-one has ever put us on the map in quite the same way. No-one has been so dedicated a West Countryman.

And if this record has the success I hink it will have, no-one else need bother. Like his previous two LPs this one will be played wherever there are West Countrymen and there are people who know the land. It will bring a breath of fresh air to thousands of exiles, and it will be treasured and enjoyed all over the world.
