Re: In The Spring, That’s The Time

re track 6 is "Doug Dorward’s" (Emilia Bartellas) and "Amelia Manuel’s" (Aaron Collis). (And "The Girl From Pennsylvania" is a Duncan Cameron composition.)

Also their "Warlike Lads of Russia" uses Emile Benoit’s "On the Way to Norway" as the instrumental break.

Re: In The Spring, That’s The Time

Wonderful, thank you for the information Sol.

Vaguely remember coming across two or three singles going by the name "Luke Payne’s", so, I suspect that the "Luke Payne’s" on this album is a set of these. Will confirm at a later date, as I’m not too familiar with those particular singles.

Re: In The Spring, That’s The Time

Anyone know the tune played before the song on the Piccadilly Slant Farewell track?
There’s a Piccadilly Slant tune by Emile Benoit but it’s not the same.
Thanks, a Dards fan.
