AllMusic Review by

The second volume in St. Clair's Folk Legends series includes the Humblebums mystical "Close Your Eyes," Dave Swarbick's epic "Byker Hill," and Decameron's prog rock anomaly "The Ungodly." Other legends of British folk like Ralph Mctell, the Dubliners, and Alex Campbell provide memorable nuggets of pastoral Anglo-centric songwriting steeped in the wet production of the mid-to late-'60s. A great many of these tracks are hard to find outside of the U.K., making this collection and its predecessor an excellent value.
