The Dance Of The Demon Daffodils

I ordered this CD about ten days ago and it just arrived in my mailbox on Friday.  John Kirkpatrick is an English accordeonist who has played on some of my all-time favourite albums by the likes of The Albion Band and Steeleye Span -- purveyors of traditional English folk-rock (one of my favourite types of music).   But this is very different -- it's solo squeezebox music.  Very nice, but not to everyone's taste, perhaps.  (But, as Barbara remarked to me recently, if we all liked the same thing there'd be a world-wide shortage of haggis LOL -- and, as John K. himself sang on an earlier solo album, "here's your harp, welcome to heaven; here's your accordeon, welcome to hell.")
