The Transports - 2004

In 2004, Free Reed published a 25th year Commemorative Issue of Peter Bellamy's ballad opera The Transports. This consists of 2 CDs, first a re-mastered version of the original 1977 recording - see previous page for cast and track listings - and a second CD with newly recorded tracks by a group of musicians, whose names you may recognise There is no one cast to a certain role as in the original recording but every song is sung by the different singers.
