The Band in its lifetime made three CDs, the first featured the original line-up of John, Arthur and Ralph on banjo and guitar, while Robbie joined the band after Ralph left for the second and third CDs on guitar, banjo and mandolin, with a little pedal steel thrown in for good measure.

The track listings are as below.  If anyone wants a copy, I can probably dig one out for a tenner and the postage!
