Carthy’s Reel / The Return to Camden Town
[trad. arr. Martin Carthy, Dave Swarbrick]
Dave Swarbrick and Martin Carthy played the tunes Carthy’s Reel and The Return to Camden Town on their 1992 album Skin and Bone. This track was included in 1993 and 1999 on the Topic anthologies The Folk Collection.
Martin Carthy wrote in the Skin and Bone sleeve notes:
Carthy’s Reel is nothing to do with me. Dave and I heard it played by one of the younger Glacklin Brothers on fiddle on a compilation, and I found The Return to Camden Town in, of all places, a book of guitar tunes—and it’s a tune filled with all sorts of surprises.
