If you like other stuff by Ewan & Peggy or just folk in general, do not hesitate to get this. As with all of their stuff it's authentic with none of those awful arrangements that can often ruin the great songs.

I think Rutka Laskier has done this album of classic ballad recordings a great disservice. I've been listening to these recordings on vinyl for many years and it's a delight to have them sounding so clear. MacColl, as usual, with his singing of ballads, is the opposite of what Ms. Laskier reports. The songs are fascinating narratives, and being classic versions of these ballads they do in fact demonstrate variation, but it's in subtleties in the text through devices such as incremental repetition rather than in the tunes. And yes, they are unaccompanied - oh no, a great singer with a marvellous voice singing unaccompanied. I can't stand it - hearing the power and flexibility in his voice so clearly. My ears might explode with delight. And of course MacColl's voice was beautiful, with such a great timbre to it. I just wish the whole of the original Riverside recordings had been made available by Topic. I'd give it ten stars if I could.

I think that for unaccompanied singing to be interesting, there has to be more interest in the melody and more drama in the words. Indeed, there may well be drama in the words but I did not find them distinct enough to appreciate it. I bought this CD for my husband's birthday at his request. He likes it; I find it a headache. There is one song that goes on and on and on with a short repetitive melody repeated in exactly the same way for more verses than I care to count. Tedious, grating, unexpressive. The only variation was a tiny slow down at the end, to let you know it was about to finish. Sigh of relief. Sorry Ewan.
