 Notes & Reviews
 
The Original LP plus tracks from the Heros Of Love E.P. / Sleeve notes by Colin Irwin/ Photos by Brian Shuel / Deluxe packaging / O Card with alternative front cover. / Original LP artwork.Topic Records are proud to present the Shirley Collins album The Sweet Primeroses plus bonus material by way of the Heros Of Love Topic E.P. With sleeve notes by Colin Irwin and photos by Brian Shuel and packaged with the original album artwork. During the 1960s and 70s Shirley Collins was regarded by many as the first lady of folk music, the subsequent decades have only served to enhance that reputation. Between 1955 and 1978 she recorded for the Folkways, Argo, Harvest and Topic labels. After the release of For As Many As Will in 1978 she withdrew from performing and the music world after developing dysphonia. Shirley recently returned to recording after a very long hiatus and is still widely acknowledged as one of the finest singers and ambassadors to have emerged during the Folksong Revival.
