From cover: "Here are samples of the various secret languages used by travellers - both English & Welsh Romany gipsies and by Irish & Scots tinkers. In addition to vocabulary, phrases & conversations, there are songs in Romany and in Tinker cant. The recordings were made by Peter Kennedy between 1952 and 1968."

Includes a folded printout of notes on pink paper.
