Stepping Up - English Country Dance Music

I can vouch for The Italian Job and Lodge Road as tunes - they’re by Rod Stradling, and good 4/4 box tunes. They feature on an album made by The English Country Blues Band, of which Stradling was (is?) a member.

Damn nicholas, you beat me back to this. I had to go and hadn’t finished the particulars. They follow ~ :-)
