|1. A Maid That's Deep In Love|
|2. When I Was In My Prime|
|3. Lord Franklin|
|4. Cruel Sister|
|5. Jack Orion|
Regarded as less mainstream that their earlier efforts, Cruel Sister is like a walk in a magical medieval forest. The playing and vocals are beautiful and Jackie Mcshee's solo vocal song 'When I was in my prime' is quality - beautiful,moving -, fairly daring at the time but there's no doubt that it comes off.
'Lord Franklin' is my highlight, but there is no weak song among the 5. Only 5 songs? you say. Well, the final song on the CD 'Jack Orion' was the entire second side on vinyl and lasts something like 14 mins. My only complaint is that Cruel Sister is not longer.
Not sure if this is the best introduction to the group, as it's often best to start at the beginning, but I'd recommend this to anyone who likes any kind of folky music.
Five brilliant tracks. Highlights being "A Maid That's Deep in Love", "Cruel Sister" and "Jack Orion" that features one of the best instrumentals ever produced, containing a fantastic but subtle guitar solo.
I have only got it on vinyl at the moment but just about to add it to my CD collection.
