In 1988, Jim Eldon was gathering material for a cassette album of East Yorkshire fireside tales, and a friend took him to Flamborough and introduced him to Robert Leng and Jossy 'Pop' Mainprize. The few snippets of ditties that had been dotted among the stream of tales grew into a whole repertoire of songs as more were remembered. Eventually a cassette of songs and one of tales were issued on Jim's Stick Records label.
The fishermen's tales and poaching yarns speak for themselves. There is very little editing in the stories section of this collection. One yarn would spark another and the titles and track separations are just there to help you navigate through them if you want to revisit a particular favourite.
