Rear Cover Side One Side Two Side Two

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]
