Other Album Notes:

"General Humbert have been together since 1976. On this, their second album, they display their command of a wide range of musical styles -- Irish, Breton and English. Mary Black's fine singing complements the fresh and original instrumental arrangements to present a satisfying and interesting album."

A previous album, General Humbert,, was recorded by General Humbert on the Dolphin label in 1975.
