5.0 out of 5 stars summer festival time 30 Dec 2005
By simon
Format:Audio CD
whatever time of year i hear this album,i get a yearning for late july/early august and cambridge/womad festival.this is a great album,which for some unknown reason,is never quoted as one eliza carthys better albums.
great fiddle/accordian playing from the first song trip to fowey,with standout tracks bonapartes retreat and good morning mr walker will have your toes tapping.
so if you like the albums red/rice,try this album,as its probably eliza,s most upbeat album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contaigiously fun record 30 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a lovely album in all respects; first class playing, splendid singing, great songs, and the pervasive sense of fun being had by all concerned that is a part of what makes Eliza Carthy so pleasing to listen to. Plenty of light-hearted and sporadically rude songs, 'Liza's distinctive, strong voice and open, honest and strident fiddle style, and a great selection of instrumentation throughout from the Kings of Calicutt make for a fun listen. I found it worked wonders for painting the house!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine folk 3 Oct 2013
By GlynLuke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I have quite a few folk albums, but this is still one of my favourites. Its mix of warmth, informality and a kind of on-the-hoof carefree quality make it irresistible and I often find myself playing it when all else has failed.
It helps of course that Eliza Carthy is a rounded, instinctive musician to her fingertips, as are the members of the strangely named small group (who are Barnaby Stradling, Saul Rose, Maclaine Colston & Andi Wells, plus a few guests, including John McCusker) that she`s got strumming, drumming, and plucking with her on this 1997 record.
It`s a nicely packaged CD too, with the song titles reduced to one word paraphrases on the back cover - Trip, Whirly, Tractor, and so on - and several moody photos of the band inside & outside the well-designed booklet.
Whirly Whirl is, in Liza`s words, `a rude song about getting married` and is great fun, as is their helter-skelter treatment of Bonaparte`s Retreat, a song I first knew from an early LP by, of all people, ex-Monkee and country-rock maestro Michael Nesmith.
Fisher Boy is utterly beautiful and haunting, the kind of ballad Carthy sings so inimitably.
Songs are interspersed with instrumentals in a flowing, organic thread of music. Indeed, this is one of the most pleasingly coherent folk albums I`ve heard. I`m listening to it now, and played it twice yesterday - it`s that kind of album, the kind you want to hear often.
If you`re looking for a folk record which has balls, energy, a bit of attitude, yet also manages to be `the real thing` then look no further.
Eliza Carthy has led or guested on more albums than you can shake a bow at, but for me this is still one of her brightest and best.

4.0 out of 5 stars well, I like it 21 Feb 2001
By Lalalalaura - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I'd have to say that Eliza Carthy and the Kings of Calicutt is good housecleaning music. Listening to this I can usually work up some enthusiasm for mopping. In other words, it's mostly uptempo, with a few good choruses to sing along to rather than attempts at vocal virtuosity. Eliza Carthy has a nice but not BIG voice and even on this where it's largely her singing, sometimes with backing singers, you can hear that she knows harmony singing. That gives it a sort of friendly, informal feel. So it's not a life-changing record, but it's a really good one nonetheless.
