Superb Folk and Poetry album about North Eastern UK miners and their struggles
This was made ironically 3 years before the 1984 strikes and demise of the UK coal mining pits, track B6 being very poignant and proved to be true with the UK conservatives party (Margaret Thatcher) determined to close the pits and forcing thousands of redundancies and job losses
