Shirley Elizabeth Collins MBE (born 5 July 1935) is an English folk singer who was a significant contributor to the English Folk Revival of the 1960s and 1970s. She often performed and recorded with her sister Dolly, whose accompaniment on piano and portative organ created unique settings for her sister's plain, austere singing style.
Track 21 is from the album "The Prospect Before Us" by THE ALBION DANCE BAND issued in 1977 on Harvest SHSP 4059. Shirley Collins held the lead vocals with Dolly playing flute-organ and occasional piano. The later recordings feature members of FAIRPORT CONVENTION.

Shirley Collins was a 1960s folk revolutionary. After pioneering a folk-jazz-global fusion style with Davy Graham, she experimented in matching folk songs with early music instruments, with help from her sister Dolly, who played the portable flute organ and was an inventive arranger. Shirley and Dolly helped transform the English folk scene, and their songs remain powerful and fresh. Shirley & Dolly Collins The Harvest Years. Uncut August 6, 2008.
