This great singer from Birmingham was just one generation away from rural Ireland, with a repertoire ranging from a never before collected English revenant ballad to the music-hall and pop songs of her youth.  CD 1 contains all the Leader and Folktrax 1951 recordings, while CD 2 has 63 songs recorded in 1967 and '71 by Charles Parker, Roy Palmer and Jon Raven, none of which have been previously released.  Both include passages of speech about the songs and her life.  Another 'complete recorded repertoire' release from MT Records.
