Format: Audio CD
This 2CD Set collects the 'Peter Bellamy Sings the Barrack Room Ballads of Rudyard Kipling' on the first disc, and a large portion of the the privately issued tape 'Soldiers Three' on Disc 2. Soldiers Three had many re-recordings of the Barrack Room Ballads album, so Fellside have removed most of the duplicates except for a version of Bill 'Awkins which featured both Peter and Keith Marsden singing together. There are also a small number of tracks culled from other sources that fit the pattern.

If you're looking at this review you likely don't need an explanation of Peters vocal style. You either like it or you don't. Quality is universally high. On the whole I actually enjoyed the Soldiers Three recordings better than the original set. Peter's voice is slightly more approachable here. Makes me wish there was a third disc with the remaining missing tracks.

If you are fan of Peter, or of Rudyard Kipling, don't hesitate, you won't be unhappy :-) Thank you Fellside Recordings.

To read all the barrack room ballads would be enough, but to set them to traditional tunes and arrange them is incredible. Bellamy is not a singer to everyone's taste, but his sincere, often tongue in cheek delivery here is wonderful. I particularly love "Tommy" and "Road to Mandalay" but as an album it is a window on the life of the soldier of the late C19. My only problem with Bellamy (who was not a lefty folkie by any means) is that he is the favourite folk artist of some people far to the right of the political spectrum. But this needn't detract from our enjoyment of him today.

I like Kipling. To hear performed the poems with which I am familiar is a treat. It is easy to picture the soldiers lives while serving Queen and empire.
