I've been enjoying some of the old ballads that have been floating around for centuries being reworked here and there. Mostly seems to be tales of death and seduction providing a thin veneer over class struggle. Sandy Denny and Pentangle did loads of these.

if the lyrics to Watering are about what i think they are about then they are even more dark than they initially sound

Kolob, in the twinkling of an eye.
I was reminded of this in the shoutbox tonight, so reposting here because I'm not sure I ever did gush about it before, but probably should have. Awesome compilation. By coincidence, new Shirley actual is out this week.
