The songs have been chosen to demonstrate the musical continuity of the song tradition within the Travelling community and to complement the historical songs published in the original volume, A Secret Stream, in 2021.

The songs have been selected by Nick Dow, and many come from his own collecting activities undertaken in the 1980s, as well as from collectors like Doc Rowe, Mike Yates, Ken Stubbs, Paul Burgess, and the late Gwilym Davies, among others.

The volume also includes dance tunes, stories and songs in Anglo-Romany Cant, as well as well-researched and key informative notes by Steve Gardham.
