When first released on vinyl in 1986 Folk Roots placed Two A Roue as no.4 recording of the year, stating “There are so many catch tunes on this album,that it is almost an epidemic”. Out of print for a decade it has constantly been requested by fans to be re-released on CD. So, at last, here it is complete with three bonus tracks.
