This was the first recorded performance of the projec now known as Legends of The Edge and features the late Harry Boardman as the wizard. Narrated by Harry Ogden (producer and presenter of the folk programme on Manchester’s Piccadilly Radio) it also features composer Joe Beard on guitar with Gerry Robinson, Steve Bradley, Tony Moss, Les Renshaw, Dave Tarrant, Di Robinson and Pat and Jamie Knowles.
