One comment

This was the second in the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s ‘Harvest Home’ series, a double cassette issued in 1993 from the private recordings of Len Graham (who also provides the text for a hundred page booklet containing much archive photographic material). It’s a crying shame that this has never been reissued.
