It was all there, just needing to be eased, which is why we took so long to do it. That never leaves you. People try to make the songs what they think is more acceptable or lively, now — and not necessarily destroy it, but certainly damage it, undermine it. But in a way I feel sorry for them, because the one advantage of being 80 now is that I grew up with it, and closer to the generations of people that actually sang it and kept it going, learning all these wonderful songs by heart.

Her voice has transformed in such a moving way, you feel it carries with it a great history and experience of life, conveyed through this profound relationship she has with these songs which have travelled over so many years. It feels very honest, very sincere.

As the sessions gathered pace, Collins soon began to enjoy the recording process. Then in the afternoon it would all flow. I need a swear box.

Cliff was an early member of the traditional folk dance group Blowzabella. We work with a lot of woodwind and reed instruments, tulums and gaida pipes. There are quite a few subtle and unusual noises woven into Lodestar — all completely acoustic, though, no electrickery! Shirley left watches as Ossian right attempts to stop Morris dancer Glen Redman injuring himself in the recording process!

Could you just do a take of that? And in the end, we got about five or six takes which Steve put into a little collage. If you really listen very closely, you can probably hear the odd train. But, the hell with it. The starting point for each track was usually a live performance with Shirley singing and Ian playing an instrument — often guitar, but also harmonium, mandolin, resonator or This Instrument see box — to which overdubs would later be added.
And of course the bleed-through made editing later very difficult. But the magic which occurred when Shirley and Ian played and sung together would have been lost if every track was dubbed on individually — their timings and interplay were so organic and intuitive. It just needed a lot of hard work and dedication, of which there was plenty! Alex Neilsen, of the folk-rock band Trembling Bells, provided percussion on several songs.
