An early version of Kate Rusby’s take on ‘The Recruited Collier’

Live recording from 1996; similar to, but not exactly the same as, the version she eventually recorded on ’10’.

Kate Rusby website

Interesting background information about the history of the song (including the controversy about just how heavily Bert Lloyd ‘edited’ it) is found here. Note my take on this subject here.
