A brief glance at the personnel contributing to this album is like a who's who of the British Folk scene for the last fifty years with the addition of some surprising and diverse artists. This is more a collective than a band. We already knew that reggae rhythms worked well with Morris tunes, after Edward II, but this extends the link to Dub and Bangra. Overall it works really well, with some good playing by Tiger Moth and The Gloworms, two bands within the collective. A standout track is by Benjamin Zephaniah, a reworking of Tam Lyn with a modern social sensibility. Billy Bragg adapts Hard Times of Old England at address some of the contemporary problems of life in rural Britain. There is plenty to dance around to and it is a genuine grower, keep playing it and it rewards the persistence. Folk purists will probably hate it, which reminds me of the old gag, how many members of the EFDSS does it take to change a lightbulb? (A: 15; 1 to change it, four to sing about how good the old one was and ten to complain that it's electric). Thoroughly recommended.
