Charlie Bridger, of Stone-in-Oxney, Kent, was recorded by Andy Turner on 15th April 1983. Charlie sang him 30 songs; 28 of which appear on this CD. He's a lovely singer, with some terrific tunes to his songs.
A year later, Andy took Mike Yates to record him 'properly', and it is these recordings which appear on several Musical Traditions and Veteran CDs. However, Mike’s recordings (using different/superior equipment) sound quite different to Andy’s, and Mike has agreed that a CD where all the tracks sound similar would be better (or easier to listen to) than one where a few of them sound radically different ... even if they are superior, technically. So Musical Traditions has made this CD entirely of Andy's recordings, none of which have ever been published before.
