Yes, the tracklist is wrong: see here

I’ll fix it soon

Sid Kipper, with backing from Ethel Eel and The Elvers, performs songs from the Trunch Tradition and George Kipper.

Featuring a wide range of styles, from the unaccompanied to the overcrowded.  Produced by Chris Sugden.

“I fell over laughing, and had to get my husband to help me up onto my feet again.

He is blind and I am hefty.  In the end we stayed on the floor to hear your CD.

It was easier and safer in the long run.”

(K.B. – Redditch)

“Not just another collection of humorous Norfolk ditties (and long-forgotten folksongs) but an album with a message.  The admirable Mr Kipper highlights the talents of his ‘sinner-songwriter’ Uncle George in a bid to clear his name and get him out of jail.  Excellent songs here such as Man Of Convictions and Open Prison Blues therefore take on extra poignancy, and Rolling Drunk, The Drag Hunt and The Illiterates’ Alphabet reveal some entertaining aspects of Norfolk rural life.  Sid is joined by various relatives and friends from St Just-near-Trunch to make a strong case for Uncle George.”

(Eastern Daily Press)

“A kind of vision [of England] you can’t readily get from the works of say Dickens or Shakespeare or Elgar or Sir Christopher Wren”  “One of the best albums to come this way in a long time.”

(Folk on Tap)

“Sid has never sounded so much like Sid before.”  “The accompaniment is suitably elegant”
