Howard Jones - you are right, this is a time for truce and a new positive beginning...

Here's to trying to be optimistic......

..and hoping Celtic still has viable master tapes that can be properly optimised for digital release...

From my point of view as a CD/digital download consumer, this is mostly an archive of music I have never had the opportunity to hear.

Like many other folkies who enjoy spending too much cash on folkie music,
I was too young the first time round,
and it was all long gone, hidden and gathering dust and mould.. perishing away..
by the time I joined mudcat and discovered that this extensive chaper of UK folk
had ever existed and been valued by an older generation...

If Celtic does it righ in the future I look forward to catching up on lost heritage,
if only to find out what was great and what was over rated...

I've been curious and just spent a few quid too many on "The Village Thing" and "Talking Elephant"
CDs, exploring rereleases of fairly obscure 1970s and early 80s LPs.


stuff I'd completely missed during my punk and new wave agit-pop years...
Some tracks are brilliant, others duff dated duds..

Other older folkies nostalgia is all new to my ears...

But at leat I have a chance to hear them for the first time in well preserved and properly presented clear audio quality.

Celtic should now recognise this potentially relatively profitable niche market that music enthusiasts like us represent...
