This is the first, the last, some think the best. Certainly the darkest of the tales in Hidden Gold. It was the first one we recorded for the project–and then we came back round at the end and re-recorded pretty much the whole song, applying everything we’d learned from the experience. I think it shows.
Fans of The Knowne World Bardcast have already heard this version of “The Bastard’s Tale”, but I’ve been told it’s worth replaying. If you like it, I hope it’s worth sharing with your friends.
Enjoy. (But watch your back.)
