Upstart Jugglers

Price: £10.00 + p&p

Upstart Jugglers, released in 2001 at the same time as "Revolucionario", was the catch-all CD to include everything else that wasn't tango. The majority opinion in the group was that we should avoid mixing the various kinds of repertoire. We even considered releasing a triple album - rock, tango and classical - but ended up with just two individual albums - Revolucionario (tango) and Upstart Jugglers (classical, rock and folk). As a concession we put the two classical pieces, James MacMillan's "Cumnock Fair" and Edwards McGuire's "Nocturnes", at the front of the CD and everything else after them. The everything else includes songs by Richard Thompson and Lowell George, La Vie En Rose arranged for musical saw and two King Crimson numbers.
