Having seen Carmel many times live and including this gig at Cargo,London,I can honestly say that they always give value for money regards entertainment.
This CD re-issue proves that.
Covers of Bob Dylan classics "Its not dark yet" and "It'a hard rain" are unique Carmel attitude,not afraid to tackle anything avoid from their style.McCoutrs vocals are haunting and endeering at the same time,fragile and bustling.
Great re make of "Rekindle your youth"............northen lyrics,twisted with Dollar Brand...should be a release of its own on CD single.
Timeless,is how I would describe their classic marraige of mellody and tune.
Highly under-rated band in the UK,but have us few goth followers still around and long may they make music together for everyone to enjoy.
I get the feeling that music is a bridge for them,come together,shake hands and be human,not devided.
Top marks from me,buy the CD,listen and enjoy a truely classic British band partly forgotton.
