21 tracks from the best and brightest of the “New Wave of English Country Dance Bands” from the late 1980s. Starting in 1983, when they began by tearing the “national anthem” of English country dance music to shreds, Tiger Moth ruffled the feathers of folk purists and caused dancers to crash through the traditional steps with yomping delight.
This is a definitive collection from 1983 to 1989, including many rare and remixed items — 68 minutes in all. Tiger Moth basically re-wrote the book on English dance music — now it’s all together on a single disc. Frankly, it eats most current folk-rock / ‘world beat’ bands alive.
