This Is… Martin Carthy:
The Bonny Black Hare and Other Songs
This Is… Martin Carthy
Philips 6382 022 (LP, UK, 1971)
Martin Carthy: vocals,
guitar [4-5, 10-12];
Dave Swarbrick: fiddle [1, 3-10, 12], mandolin 
This LP is the first of many Martin Carthy compilations to come. It consists of six tracks from Byker Hill on the first side and six tracks from But Two Came By on the second side:
|Side 1||Side 2|
Tracks 1-2, 4, 6-7, 9, 11-12 trad. arr. Martin Carthy;
Tracks 3, 5 trad. arr. Martin Carthy, Dave Swarbrick;
Track 8 trad. adapt. A.L. Lloyd;
Track 10 trad. arr. Sydney Carter
The cassette release is nearly identical to the LP, except that the last tracks on each side—The Bonny Black Hare and Streets of Forbes—were swapped (maybe because the two sides of the recordings on the tape were closer to being the same length?). And Streets of Forbes is called Streets of London on the cassette but this version is definitely not by Ralph McTell!
Many thanks to Kevin Sheils for the LP info and to Wolfgang Hell for the cassette info.
