Like Cold Fen this album has more songs from Cambridgeshire, and another tune from the manuscript of William Clarke of Feltwell. We have re-recorded When Fishes Fly as it is the song most asked for and the original Sharp Practice Album is all sold out.
A Bakers's Dozen does have thirteen tracks, but the title also refers to the song The Proud Pedlar, whose plot hinges on the apparent baking of a cake and culinary metaphor (it's possible that the reference to a pestle and mortar does not necessarily refer to the actual kitchen implements - I'm not saying any more...) Dodgy cooking also appears in John Riley where the stewed eels fed to him by his sweetheart certainly didn't do him any good.
There's a seasonal thread running though some of the album, with a May song, a June tune, a souling song (October) and a Christmas song, which we've kept in chronological order - it seems to work that way.
This album is much more local produce than previous ones - it
features two tunes written by Anahata, one by Essex man Simon Ritchie,
the recording and mixing were done by Anahata in our own studio,
Mary designed and photographed the stunning cover picture and it's on
our own "Treewind" label.
