Technical stuff:
We have uploaded the music as mp3 files.  These are compressed from the original wave files on the CDs, for faster downloading, but this causes some loss in sound quality.  (The CDs sound better - honest!)  Nevertheless, downloading might take a significant time if you have a slow internet connection.  So the 'small' files are shorter and more heavily compressed, in case you are using a 'dial-up' connection.

The Nut Tree (M. Fry)
The Aardvark Ceilidh Band has undergone a considerable evolution during the five years since our first album was released. While the main influences of Pete G and Pete L were clearly evident, 'The Pleasures of the Town' also represented a 'family album' of the numerous musicians who had worked with the band over the years. By contrast, this second album represents a closer collaboration between the four elemental components that now constitute the Aardvark Ceilidh Band.
