A collection of British songs about love, adapted and sung by Shirley Elizabeth Collins of Sussex, England; with guitar and five string banjo accompaniment by John Hasted, Ralph Rinzler, Guy Carawan and Miss Collins. 'False True Lovers' was Shirley Collins' first full length album, recorded in London by Alan Lomax and Peter Kennedy and released on the prestigious American Folkways label. The choice of repertoire and arrangements capture a turning moment in the English folk song revival of the 1950's, and in the recording career of one of England's finest interpreters of traditional song. Bo' Weavil Recordings is very proud to release this once more on 180g vinyl in a limited hand numbered pressing of 500.
