Three albums--Chantoozies, Dansoozies and Infinite Blue--and a great live reputation have established The Poozies as Britain's top all-female folk band. Drawing on the albums in chronological order, this anthology begins with two numbers from the EP Come Raise Your Head, the risqué title referring to "The Widow", a lady who "entertains" the devil 99 times in an exhausting evening. Songs such as "Honesty" and "Another Train" first appeared on Sally Baker's This Rhythm Is Mine, though these versions, recorded for Chantoozies after Baker formed The Poozies with harp duo Sileas, Mary Macmaster & Patsy Seddon, and Karen Tweed (accordion) prove remakes can top the originals. Baker's replacement, folk fiddle superstar Kate Rusby, features on the numbers drawn from Infinite Blue, though she only takes lead vocals on "Maid Of Llanwellyn". Seddon has the lead on two numbers, yet often the strength of The Poozies is their collective singing, whether in English or, more occasionally, in Gaelic on "Faca Sibh". Between the songs are several delightful instrumentals, the combination of harps, guitar, accordion or fiddle making for a clean, infectiously energetic and beautiful sound. A great introduction to the band, but be warned, you may soon be buying all the original albums as well. --Gary S. Dalkin
Top Customer Reviews
The album kicks of with a Rusby vocal number, `The Widow', a fantastic folk song and one of the best that Kate has ever recorded in my opinion. Contrast this with the more mainstream radio friendly sounds of `We built fires' which has received heavy airplay and been used on tv. This sums up the band perfectly; there is a stack of talent on display and they really can turn their hand successfully to almost anything.
The band have Celtic roots and this is predominant throughout but neither in a twee tartan style or fist punching pomposity, they carry the tradition with style and songs like the instrumental `Willie's old trousers' and `The Baytree set' illustrate this perfectly.
This is real good time music, played with passion and no little skill. Recommended.
