The previous review says it all so I can only add a few comments....
'Waltzing With Sin' is a song only Hank could do justice to in its tortured and agonising brilliance. I think it's one of Hank's best vocals ever.
Dylan's 'Seven Curses' is an epic, emotive song that Reg sings with a passion and clarity common to everything he does. Great singer.
'Time For The Sun To Rise' is Johnny Nicky at his soulful best. His vocal envelops the listener with an all-encompassing warmth.
'Island Of Dreams' has always been one of my favourite songs. Here, Geraint breezes through the old Springfields classic in his own inimitable style. Poignant lyrics but wonderfully uplifting tune.
'Get Rhythm' is probably my favourite track. A slower and funkier version than Martin's usual live version which works well. Great Bobby Valentino fiddle solo.
The album ends with an exquisite 'Beyond The Blue Horizon' showcasing Barbara Marsh's sultry and appealing voice...and Martin's guitars which are to die for. Absolutely beautiful.
The production is crisp and polished. The musicians on it include, to my mind, one of our best bass players, Kevin Foster. There is not a dud track on it and I would strongly recommend you go buy this CD. You won't be disappointed.

Martin's first album, 'Big Guitar' is one of my favourites and I play it a lot. This one? Well, I wanted to like it but the choices of the various guests are too spread apart in style. Putting them next to each other jars, and I had that feeling of wanting to re-order the tracks and maybe remove some.

The best tracks are the ones that feature Martin, these are 'Get Rhythm', 'I Viberate', and 'Alison'. But where's some of those Belmont originals like 'Bonton Roulez' from 'Big Guitar'? , and I'd have liked a lot more of his 'big guitar' (the Fender 6-string bass').

Giving the guests a fairly free hand to decide on their offering has left the album a litle weak in places, so for your next album, Martin, let's have you romping through bigger arrangements with some of your own material - plenty of Fender Bass VI, steel guitar, rolling piano, close-mic'd acoustic rhythm, double-tracked vocals with harmonies and a chorus behind, and a decent low-tuned kick for those of us with subs!

I used to love this group of musicians when they played at the 'Weavers Arms' in North London in the 90's, particularly Martin Belmont, Reg Meuross and Geraint Watkins, and I thought that I couldn't go wrong buying this, especially as I am also a fan of Nick Lowe and Carlene Carter. I'm afraid that I am very disappointed with the purchase, and have to conclude that the whole is so much less than the sum of its parts. So, what's gone wrong? I think that the main problem is the option to go with cover versions, most of which are totally lacking in imagination, and some of which (notably, Geraint Watkins' 'Island of Dreams') are downright lazy. Naturally, the playing is excellent throughout, as you would expect with this fine group of musicians, but there is a distinct lack of inspiration. If I was buying the MP3s, I would download Paul Carrack's 'My Baby's Gone, which is the opener and standout effort, and possibly Graham Parker's and Nick Lowe's offerings ('In The Midnight Hour' and 'A Man in Love' respectively), but that's about it. A real missed opportunity. Martin should get this group together again and let them do their own stuff.

Bought this at the Trades Club Hebden Bridge after seeing Martin Belmont play there with Hank Wangford.
I love this album. Martin Belmont is a great guitarist.
