Sorry, no, because that would mean that I would have to listen to the wretched thing again (oh, noooo!!!!).
So you are saying that a cd you heard at a friend's, which you only think was Stiffs Lovers Holymen Thieves by Tim van Eyken, was over produced and far removed from folk, yet you won't go back to double check.
I'm wondering if it wasn't Seth Lakeman's Freedom Fields album you heard. Why? Because Tim's album is almost entirely traditional, whereas you said the cd you heard had only a few trad titles. Seth also has a far more pop tinged sound.
Nothing against Seth, but I think this is more than likely the case.
