「This album of tunes for dancing features traditional and revivalist musicians playing together (some of the latter using electric instruments). Most of the recordings were made at sessions in Cornwall's Sawmills Studio. 
Hidden away as it is up a creek off the River Fowey, Sawmills is not the sort of studio you come across every day. It is in fact a converted  sawmill (pictured at the turn of the century on the front cover) and it totally inaccessible by road. You either have to take a boat down the river and up the creek or walk along an old rail-track which about three times a day groans under the weight of a consignment of fresh clay transported in clattering old wagons. Needless to say, recording stops when the wagons hove in view! 
The sessions were great fun and consequently the music that came out of them is just right for dancing. So form up sets everyone!」 


◆本CDについて◆ 

ブックレット(全12頁)にJohn ToblerによるCD解説、LP裏ジャケのライナーノーツ(ダンス・インストラクションを含む)再録。

アシュリー・ハッチングス『キッキン・アップ・ザ・ソーダスト』。LPは1977年にハーヴェストからリリースされました(Harvest SHSP 4073)。

これは実質的にはアルビオン・ダンス・バンドで、メロディオンアコーディオンの一種)奏者のボブ・キャンと、ハンマード・ダルシマー奏者のジミー・クーパーが参加しています。『Prospect Before Us』と『Rise Up Like the Sun』のあいだの時期の録音ですが、ダンス・チューンに特化していて、歌は入らないです。
