CDNow has 'Language of Snakes' available on CD. There's a track listing:


The album was first released in 1993 on Special Delivery, a subsidiary of Topic. I have not heard the album, but Bob Walton gave it a rave review in the December 1993 issue of Folk Roots. Inter alia, he wrote:

Folk tunes from all over Europe(Finland to Galicia via Ireland and the UK) played on an astonishing array of instruments (Ba-wu to zither via too many I've never heard of to mention)with loads of friends contributing - the potential for an uncoordinated mishmash is immense. But the whole album flows seamlessly for start to finish, with both a sonority and a lightness of touch that marks a master at work ... Someone said the man's a star - the album is a gem.

I hope the above is of some use to you.
