I am very fond of singer-songwriters, and have always been a bit nervous of Norma Waterson's music, as I am not really a "folky"-type. However, the sheer range and breadth of material here is remarkable, and Norma's voice is so emotive and expressive that I could listen to her all night. Particular mention, among the eclectic rangte of songs, has to go to "Fallen Leaves". Brings a lump to my throat every time, with its honest and true depiction of the benefits of dying young, rather than growing old, frail and infirm with your family looking on. "Honest" and "True" are words that sum up this album perfectly, and I will be shopping around for more Norma. I am no longer nervous of her folky image. She's quite remarkable.
