Thanks for that, Herga - as an ex-pat Geordie it's always a joy hearing Pete's voice. That's a lovely version of Jim Jones; one of the first songs I ever sang in public after hearing J. Kirkpatrick sing it on '...Really High Class Band'. Actually I feel moved to dig it out again, both the album and the song; nice how these things come around. I've always loved the line 'Don't get too Gay in Botany Bay...'

I was at a singaround at The Cumberland Arms a few months back and Pete Wood was in - as I remember it he sang The White Hare, and it was the wonderful Piers (another commited Bellamist & one of the finest voices on Tyneside) who sang The Land.
