commentary
this release is, in effect, a supplement to the BBC’s first celebration of the Cambridge Folk Festival, which was released, under their music-archives deal with Strange Fruit, as The best of the Cambridge Folk Festival, and which also includes an Eddi Reader track, the live ‘Honeychild’ from 1992.

The full title of this release is Cambridge Folk Festival: a celebration of roots music 1998–99
