Probably the best known and most popular of all the Lindisfarne albums, the added bonus of 'No time to lose' and Scotch Mist' add to this classic album which hit number 1 in 1972. From the opening cut 'Meet me on the corner' through to 'Fog on the Tyne' with the two bonus tracks which were incidentally the B-side of the single 'Meet me on the Corner, the strength of the songwriting and harmonies shine through. The album sounds as fresh now as it did in 1972, its a sound thats hard to categorise, too folky to be rock, too rocky to be folk, but with a sound that is commercial and still retains it's integrity. Classic songs from the pen of the late Alan Hull such as 'City Song', 'Alright on the Night' and the title track, as well as a couple from Rod Clements including 'Meet me on the Corner'. This album is a must for anyone who collects classic pop/rock albums and a worthy addition to anybody's collection

"Fog on the Tyne" was Lindisfarne's second album originally released on Charisma records in 1971. It contains their first single-hit "Meet Me on the Corner", and the album itself spent many weeks in the charts. It's popularity even brought their first album "Nicely out of Tune" back into the charts. Interesting that their second hit single "Lady Eleanor" was taken from their great debut-album.

Though "Meet Me on the Corner" was written by Rod Clements, it is still lead singer and guitarist Alan Hull who is the dominating personality with his great songs like "January Song", "Peter Brophy Don't Care", "City Song" and "Passing Ghost".

Compared to their debut, the overall feeling on this album is more acoustic and though many songs are up-beat tempo, there is a very relaxed and pleasant feel to the album.

The two bonus-tracks are great additions; especially Alan Hull's fine B-side "No Time to Lose".

Like their debut "Nicely Out of Tune" , this is one of my all-time favourite albums.

Great sound on this new remastered CD release.

Highly recommended!

This is a classic album by a band with an original and distinctive sound - a collection of cracking good songs with thoughtful and witty lyrics that just rock along. All were written by band members except for Rab Noakes's 'Together Forever'. The yearning vocals and soaring harmonies from Alan Hull, Ray Jackson and Simon Cowe have a feeling of timelessness while the sound is always strong and rhythmic, driven by superb bass playing from Rod Clements and imaginative percussion from Ray Laidlaw. This instrumental make-up is primarily acoustic and includes harmonica, mandolin, violin and twelve-string guitar supplemented by keyboards and occasional electric guitar, which never dominates. The result is music that is original and vibrant, underlying which is a regional identity which turned the band into a Geordie icon and title track into a Tyneside anthem.
There are two tracks that were not on the original LP, but appeared on the B side of the hit single 'Meet me on the Corner'. 'Scotch Mist' is a light-hearted instrumental in Scottish dance style, complete with a parody of the authentic drumming style. 'No Time to Lose' is an Alan Hull song much more in the style of the album, with nice harmonies, harmonica and mandolin.
Lindisfarne turned out some good material after this, but never quite reached the peak of 'Fog on the Tyne', so if you are going to buy only one of their CDs this is the one to get. There isn't a bad track here and this is an album that still sounds fresh and exciting more than thirty years on. This is good value for money and is thoroughly enjoyable, earning an undoubted five stars.

Lindisfarne didn't spend very long at the top of their particular corner of the music scene, and their first three albums were their best, with this one representing the peak of their career. Everything gelled ~ the songs, the playing and, not to be overlooked, the magnificent production c/o Bob Johnston, which seems to have brought out the best in everyone concerned.

In its early years, Lindisfarne comprised Alan Hull (6 & 12 string acoustic guitars, electric guitar, keyboards and vocals), Simon Cowe (6 & 12 string acoustic guitars, electric guitar, mandolin and vocals), Ray Jackson (harmonica, mandolin and vocals), Rod Clements (electric bass, 6 & 12 string acoustic guitars, electric guitar, violin and vocals) and Ray Laidlaw (drums & percussion). What a great lineup, not least due to the great underpin of Rod Clements' fretless bass, captured here to fine effect.

Though short at only a hair over 31 minutes, every second of this wonderful album counts and now, thanks to very fine remastering of Ken Scott's original recording at Trident Studios in the hands of Kathy Bryan at Abbey Road, it's better than ever. Hear this album, buy it and enrich your life.

Fantastic sounds from the 70's revisited. Remember the 3 day working week and the power cuts? This album will bring it all back to you. Having seen Lindisfarne over the years in their Christmas Shows when they reformed, their fun and laughter is encapsulated in some of the songs whilst the haunting melodies of Lady Eleanor evoke memories of musk oil and incense sticks. Beautiful on CD. No longer stuck in the attic on vinyl.
