Actually, some folks did not like Ten Man Mop, including Martin Carthy and Ashley Hutchings; hence the lineup changes that ensued. I think Ashley felt the band was going too much in an Irish direction, and Martin wanted to do something very different after Ashley left but was voted down. I've always enjoyed the album, though!
