4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely album dug up from the vaults 12 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
"Banjoland", according to the accompanying notes, was never released back then in 1967 and has slumbered in the vaults for all these years. Thankfully, this fine (but rather short) Clive Palmer album has been brought to light.

The title is quite apt: the cd features Clive on banjo and vocals, accompanied on some tracks by Wizz Jones and on one lovely track (Stories of Jesus) we find (oh indulgence!) a string arrangement. Unadorned, stark and largely instrumental, it is not hard to see why no record company chose to release it at the time, especially since the psychedelic revolution was gaining momentum. Added to the original album are a couple of great bonus tracks, especially the first one which finds Clive and Wizz on a country road ("heeee-haa!").

You wouldn't be reading this if you didn't know Clive Palmer's work. I can therefore skip a lot of explaining and just mention that this album, though far from being on a par with his best work with COB is a fine and characteristic album which I suspect will grow on me as time goes by.

5.0 out of 5 stars banjo is king 28 Dec 2012
By gille liath TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
These days we associate banjo with American and perhaps Irish music; if you look up 'banjo' on Amazon, the stuff you'll see is virtually all 5-string/bluegrass. The old 'C' tenor banjo has completely gone out of fashion, even more than the English concertina, and it's easy to forget that it was a mainstay of British popular music for around 100 years. Before amplification guitars weren't really loud enough for public performance; the banjo was the answer for an accompanying instrument which was easy to transport and easy to play.

This album reads like an attempt to revive the instrument and show what it can do, covering everything from bluegrass and music-hall songs to ancient carols. Palmer studied at a London banjo club under one of the old-time players, so he learned properly and is maybe the last product of the genuine tradition. The playing, however, is calm - studied, even - never flashy. The classic title track was recorded by COB and also used as the theme for Billy Connolly's World Tour of Scotland - so if you've heard that you'll have some idea what to expect: old-style music but with a strange, modern sensibility. It's a sort of retro-psychedelia which, even in the exploratory climate of 1967, was obviously just too far out for many.

Five stars because of its uniqueness, and the melancholy, low-key soulfulness Palmer put into his music.
