Bruce Woodley "The Roaring Days" LP 1974 Stereo
I have no idea who ripped this album but it is a very good rip obviously from a well preserved LP. I have not touched the material at all. It is a mixture of poems and songs encoded at 320 CBR which is a little excessive especially for the unaccompanied poems so if you are short of storage memory as in phones, players and tablets, they can be converted to a lesser rate without any apparent loss of quality. My thanks to whomsoever did this rip.
This was a promotional album commissioned by Viscount cigarettes but it is obvious that they did not skimp on production costs. The instrumental backing is high class yet relevant to the folk/pioneer theme. On two tracks Bruce is accompanied by Linda George.
The vinyl labels identify the album as Volume 1 but apparently they never progressed to a Volume 2 - That's a real pity! Graphics includes the lyrics/verses to all tracks.
