Back a couple of weeks for the next two. George Collins, as you'll doubtless be aware, roved out on a May morning, making this one seasonal-ish. I learned the song from Tony Rose's recording but didn't like the tune & chose another one. Then, some time later, I heard Shirley and Dolly Collins's amazing version and decided I had to use their tune. So here's George Collins, re-recorded, with drums, concertina and an all-new recorder part.

Another seasonal number of sorts: It's May she comes and May she goes... I haven't re-recorded The Bonny Hind, because I quite liked the way it came out the first time. But it is remixed, re-EQ'd and generally smartened up a bit.

Finally, here's a new recording of The Bonny Hind's other half, Sheath and Knife. No concertina on this one; just percussion and voices. Quite a few voices.

More re-recordings soon!
