3.0 out of 5 stars Finger-in-the-ear folk 27 Dec 2013
By Gandalf
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A really good cross section of folk, some for the purists & some for those who prefer the more easy to listen to type of folk.
Some tracks sound like a drunken great grandfather/grandmother cajoled into reciting some unknown song that their grandparents used to sing, but, hey, if that's your thing you should love this cd.
There are also tracks which are very listenable, but how often I'll listen again I would hate to say.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to folk 5 Jun 2013
By Deborah
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was great value and has a wide range of artists and musical variation. It would be good for anyone looking for an introduction to folk music or if like me you want a mixed bag of great tunes for a good price

4.0 out of 5 stars Folk is a 4 letter word 27 Oct 2012
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Many of today's folk comps are so cheap that a lack of sleeve notes is not a big issue as everything can be looked up
Obviously with 4 CDs there's bound to be stuff alien to those who came into the music via Shirley Collins or Steeleye Span and for me any unaccompanied stuff usually gets disabled from Media Player

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate 19 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A fairly average variety of songs and tunes reasonably well performed. Not spectacular, more fit for purpose (whatever that is).
