The sub-heading of this release is variously 'Songs of the Inland Waterways' or 'Music of the Canals and Waterways' but both are rather misleading. Only three tracks are specifically to do with the inland waterways with the rest a rather motley collection of songs and tunes relating to rivers and coastal boating. With Peter Kennedy's death in 2006 Folktrax recordings ceased to be available in the UK. For a few years they could still be obtained from Camsco Music in the USA but this is no longer the case.
