The first in the "From The Witchwood Media Archive" series of releases, a beautifully recorded duo live set from Rick and Dave dating back to 1988, when Cousins was running DevonAir. He booked the Rick Wakemsan band for the first DevonAir Music Festival. As well a playing with the band, Rick did a duo set with Dave, which was recorded for posterity. The piano and solo guitar fit together superbly and Dave is in stunning voice throughout.
"The Shepherd's Song" was previously released on Thirty Years in Rock, the covermounted sampler given away free with the May 2001 issue of the Classic Rock Society's magazine Wondrous Stories.
