Wild Women Recorded at the same time as a Feathers not a bird. This is one of Julie's favourites.
 "Wild Women Don't Get the Blues", or simply Wild Women is a song recorded by American singer Ida Cox with Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders in 1924.It has a strong feminist message.
I'd rather go blind Recorded at the YHA gig in Swanage. One of favourites, it's simple and pleasing.. Just like a Bear..

Written by Elington Jordon whilst he was in prison in the early 1960's, he gave the song to Etta James who recorded it in 1967.. It has since been recorded by a lot of peopleincluding Chicken Shack, Rod Stewart and recently Beyonce.. I syll prefer the Etta James version :-)and the Baroness's version of course..
Secret Recorded at the YHA gig in Swanage. This has always been a crowd pleaser.

This was written and performed by Missy Higgins in 2007. An obscure but catchy little number.

Jockey Full of Bourbon The last of the three tracks recorded at Great Massingham on 23rd September 2015, a long time favourite of the band and audiences. In 3/4 time giving it a wonderful Tango feel and wonderful lyrics from the master Mr Tom Waits.

Jockey Full of Bourbon" is a song by Tom Waits released as the first single from his 1985 album Rain Dogs. It is featured in the films Down By Law (1986) and Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead (1995), as well as in the credits of the television series Black Books.
I'll Fly Away A Complete contrast from the other songs on here. This was recorded live, very live! on a mobile phone. It is a spontaneous performance of a number we had never played before but have always admired..

Harry the dog on the occasional whine
Julie peeling the potatoes, playing guitar and singing.

Bob drinking beer and stroking the Mandolin

I'll Fly Away", is a hymn written in 1929 by Albert E. Brumley and published in 1932 by the Hartford Music company in a collection titled Wonderful Message.[1][2] Brumley's writing was influenced in part by an older secular ballad.

"I'll Fly Away" has been called the most recorded gospel song,[1][2] and it is frequently used in worship services by Baptists, Pentecostals, Nazarenes, the Churches of Christ and many Methodists.[3] It appears in many hymnals where it is listed under the topics of eternal life, heaven and acceptance. It is a standard song at bluegrass jam sessions and is often performed at funerals

Somewhere Trouble Dont Go Bobs 'Psychedlic' mix; Could be circa 1966. Its a recording made in early 2015 with Paul on drums. Recorded on a handheld recorder. The two prominent instruments are the Snare drum and Julies Voice.. So Bob decided to make it a little more interesting...
Spoonful When we sit at home we often just try out different songs. We both love the Wilie Dixon song Spoonful. This is Julie and Bobs 1st take of it..
