AllMusic Review by

This amalgam of two classic Tangent LPs recorded by the late Jean Jenkins provides a little chronological depth to a recently "discovered" musical tradition. They include the richly ornamented "long songs," the simpler, more direct "short songs," milking songs, games, an extraordinary form of mouth music, flutes and stringed instruments (including two-stringed horse's-head fiddle), mostly solo.
