Sleeve Notes

Following on from the phenomenal success of Barleycorn in the 70s, a new line-up emerged featuring the late Derek McCormack, one of the finest voices of his generation. This resulted in a change of direction for the band, showcasing Derek's fine, melodic and lyrical voice. The three albums featured in this collection are taken from that period.
