This CD came to my attention when I was lucky enough to catch Elbow Jane live. What a band! A great atmosphere and great songs that are captured on this CD.
As a long-standing fan of one of the band members I had high expectations - and these were exceeded. This is a stand-out selection of contemporary folk, if they have to be given a label, songs that make you listen and want to hear again, and to hear more.
Elbow Jane have already got a national audience via Radio 2 and that's no less than they deserve. Beautiful voices and harmonies effortlessly combining on songs with meaningful lyrics - a CD to unwind to and to appreciate.
Stand - out songs are the title track and Joe Topping's haunting and lovely Throw Me To The Wind, a song that brought tears when I first heard it. This is the music you thought wasn't being made any more. Pure quality.
