Artisti In Piazza Anthology
Ferrara Anthology

Artisti In Piazza (Pennabilli Festival) Anthology 2002

includes 'Well Below the Valley' (same version as 'Musicisi Screditati')

Antologia Ferrara Buskers Festival

Has a terrible version of 'Lord Franklin' that luckily isn't on anything else. There's also a Ferrara video of the same year with the same recording of the same song - and it's still not very good - with pictures, but there's also some amusing footage of extra-festival hi-jinks, Sausages, and the legendary Dave The Piper, the Scourge of God. 1992.

At some point when I get the time I'll put in song words linked from this page, so you can sing along - or finally work out what we're supposed to be saying...
