One of the very finest British folk/roots albums of all time finally reappears on compact disc. "Alright Jack" has been acknowledged as a classic of the English folk-rock genre and Home Service as Britain's finest folk big band. This mighty ensemble unites a powerful rock-solid rhythm section, John Tams' remarkable and insightful lyrics, a brass section to make the walls of Jericho tremble, with the neglected music of Percy Grainger: a wild electric album. Sounds unlikely - then just listen. Recorded in 1986 "Alright Jack" features an illustrious crew: John Tams (vocals, guitar), Graeme Taylor (guitars), Steve King (keyboards, accordion), Jonathan Davie (bass), Michael Gregory (drums, percussion), Howard Evans (trumpets, flugelhorn), Andy Findon (saxophones, clarinet, flute), and Roger Williams (trombone, tuba). The album has now been carefully remastered to bring out all the remarkable sonic detail.
