5.0 out of 5 stars Charlie Dore Sleep All Day 5 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is superlative songwriting and performance. Charlie Dore is so unfairly overlooked - she's one of the UK's persisitently and unjustly overlooked songwriters. Why does she never get the attention she deserves? She writes great, sensitive songs, plays her own instruments and knows her craft well. I have one other album of hers and I wondered if this new CD could possibly be as good. Well it is. Buy it. Buy shedloads and send them to your friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Album 13 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
I bought her album (Where to Now on vinyl) in the early eighties and didn't really know much about her since then. Saw her set at the 2011 Cropredy Festival and the songs (and arrangements) caught my attention

I bought "Cheapskate Lullabies" and thought it was fab and have now worked my way through her more recent back catalogue - all of which are of really high standard

I guess people will always remember her for "Pilot of the Airwaves" but her music now is much more eclectic - the albums cover styles which encompass Western Swing, Hawaiian, English Traditional, Joni Mitchell, McGarrigles (one review called her the "English McGarrigle sister"), Led Zep (acoustic DADGAD tuning stuff) etc etc. The songs (co written and arranged by Julian Littman who is a fabulous musician) are some of the best songs I have heard in a long while and I'm a huge Richard Thompson fan - and he's certainly no slouch. A great find.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Nu-ish folk 26 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
Worth the money demanded by these Amazon dealers if only and solely for the stone classic "Cartoon" that just demands to be covered by all and sundry.
The rest of the slbum is worth (a late-night) listen though some of the tracks seem to sink under the radar of startling originality rather than stand out as something quite so special.
