The Johnstons' albums - "Barleycorn" and "Give A Damn" - were actually released (in the UK) on the same day in 1969. Don't ask me why. Folk albums back then sold in comparitively small numbers but the perceived commercial potential of The Johnstons obviously called for a grand gesture on the part of their record company (Transatlantic)and they duly threw caution to the wind. I can't imagine that too many people stumped up the money to buy both. Then again, the albums were like chalk and cheese.
