Product Description

The classic 1988 collaboration between these two great singers, now at budget price with an attractive new sleeve design. Maddy Prior and June Tabor are arguably the finest and most influential women folk singers of their generation. Maddy, most well known as the voice of Steeleye Span, has captured many a heart with her stirring and melodic singing in front of a full tilt electric band. June, on the other hand, has trod a more solitary path, recognised as the most affecting of solo singers. NO MORE TO THE DANCE was their second collaboration and is by turns playful and restrained, exuberant and thoughtful, rhythmical and melodic, capturing the two great singers at the peak of their form.

I wouldn't exactly call myself a 'folkie' but have always had an interest in traditional music. This was one of my first folk albums, and it was a great start to my growing collection. Both Maddy Prior & June Tabor are first rate artists and hearing them sing together is priceless. Both have such unique voices and there is that magic where it all just blends together. I never tire of listening to this, especially 'Somewhere Along the Road' - it's just beautiful.

The first Prior/Tabor collaboration, "Silly Sisters", was charming but somewhat muted and unadventurous; Prior was very much the senior partner and the choice of songs was solidly traditional and homogenous. It was a fine album; but if your house burnt down with the last surviving copy of it inside, you'd probably be more upset about the house than the record.

"No More To The Dance" is on a wholly different level. Prior and Tabor have figured out how to blend their voices to maximum effect. They've chosen material that showcases their exceptional talents and abilities,their range, versatility and scope.

All the tracks are good, but for my money there are two that stand out; "Fine Horseman" and "The Old Miner", both of which will be on my desert island. Once you've heard them, you can't get them out of your head for days afterwards.

Two lifetime favourites on one album. Do yourself a favour; buy this disc.

A fabulous CD for lovers of folk music, at an amazing price. If you know me, you'll be getting it for birthday or Christmas. A very underrated, undermentioned pairing of two exquisite talents.

A brilliant album by two highly regarded singers who, individually, can be a bit of a pain (June Tabor, particularly, seems to take herself very seriously these days) but together have created two excellent sets of traditional music. This is firmly in the tradition of early Steeleye and early Albion Band, but with a musicianship and taste that those groups didn't have at the time. There aren't any stand-out tracks - they are all great - but listen to "Fine Horseman".

I'd forgotten how well these two voices complimented each other, ,I bought the cd to replace a long lost vinyl disc, nice to revisit such a brilliant album.
