The star-studded 1977 double LP "THE TALE OF ALE" told "The story of the English and their Beer" in almost fifty songs, tunes & readings, and here receives its long-awaited CD re-release on Free Reed. With performances by legends of the '70s folk scene ? Peter Bellamy, the Dransfields, John Foreman, Eddie Upton, Roy Harris; with great bands; and with readings from Willie Rushton, the LP became the nation?s natural accompaniment to good ale, and even received the approval of the Campaign for Real Ale! With the full original notes from its creator, the folklorist and academic VIC GAMMON, it remains the definitive showcase of the songs and stories of beer-drinking, by the best of tale-tellers!
