Please rate this album:

This is another relatively hard to find album. There are no recording dates given, but it looks like the two tracks featuring Ralph were from the 14-15th July 1979, as Ralph announces I'm In A New World as having been recently recorded and that "it'll be out on album and tape anytime now".[1]

The album is marred somewhat by horrid overdubbed crowd noise...

On side two, there is a track by Wendy Smith and Blue Velvet. Wendy contributed at least 6 songs to Ralph's repertoire including the Hills Of Home tribute to Carter.[2]
