A Rare Conundrum was recorded in a more familiar style in the UK during 1976 and released by Charisma in May 1977. The majority of the album features Bert with a group he'd put together consisting of ROD CLEMENTS on bass, PICK WITHERS on drums and MIKE PIGGOTT on violin. By the time the album was released the group had split after Clements returned to a re-formed Lindisfarne and Withers joined Dire Straits. A Rare Conundrum marked a return to a simpler style: it includes delicate instrumentals, Irish traditional songs, a couple of slow blues and some of Bert's most overlooked songs which look back to his childhood ("One To A Hundred") and his early days on the folk scene in Edinburgh ("Three Chord Trick" and "Three Dreamers").

Also available: A RARE CONUNDRUM (CD).
