"His legend was secured by the release of Penguin Eggs in 1980, the decade's finest folk album...."

Is that the decade 1971 to 1980? or 1980 to 1989?

"Penguin Eggs will be on my desert island. Little (aka Wee) Pot Stove might even be what I'd save if the waves claimed the other 7...."

Have you heard the recording by Harry Robertson, who wrote the song? Re-released on CD a couple of years ago, fine piece of work, also has Ballina Whalers, which Jones recorded as The Humpback Whale.
