Now it is here, long awaited, either from summer 2008, or from summer 1983, depending how you're counting, the album "Ring Around The Land" . It's a labour of love. Having heard the pre and post mastering versions I have to say that Jeremy Carroll's mastering has taken the whole work to another level. It's something close to Super Audio, it's that near to being in the booth.

Some of the content has been heard before, but largely only by people who saw the band live. Opening with "Celtic Moon", which is named for a website that was particularly supportive, but tells a tale of someone triumphing over adversity through the strength of friendship , as I read it, and Chris Leslie's fiddle propels a fine song mightily. From the 90's "Keep On Loving You" follows , with an added intro, and an infectious violin/mandolin riff , before Chris breaks out into a breathtaking solo.

"Something Wicked This Way Comes" from the 80's morphs from a Creedence styled rocker to a honking country stomp with harmonica accompaniment, and features Mark on vocals. Always an excellent song, and if they ever remake the movie, it needs to be played over the credits.

"Only a fool" hands the mike back to Carolyn, and a fine folk rocker it is, "Woman In Love" a love song Carolyn makes you feel, and then a polished and produced "My Father's Green Beret" which builds and builds to a hugely emotive conclusion.

Fairport's "White Dress" is the only cover on the CD, taking a different look at the Swarbrick classic from "Rising For The Moon", which fits perfectly in style, and quality into the playlist.
