You could quibble that it doesn't have your favourite track by the splendid artists included. You could quibble that its missing your favourite artist,
But , if you want to try a pile of excellent tracks by a good range of excellent artists , what better way and what cheaper way to do so- Well done Proper - keep on keeping on with this scheme

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sampler 19 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another attractively priced sampler of modern folk showcasing the new generation of folk singers, such as Seth Lakeman. Like any good sampler it encourages you to listen and then search out more of the music. I particularly liked June Tabor & Oysterband singing 'Bonny Bunch Of Roses' and Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman impressed on first listening singing 'Money Or Jewels' from their album 'Hidden People'. An excellent introduction to some fine music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic CD, fantastic value 15 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All folk fans know how expensive folk CDs can be, so it was fantastic to find this 10 track CD for less than 5!

I'm new to the folk scene and enjoying discovering new artists, so this was perfect to get a taster of different artists.

On the strength of 2 of the songs, I actually went out and bought June Tabor & Oysterband and Bellowhead albums.

Bellowhead's Lillibulero is brilliant!

I'd highly recommend this to everyone, a fab selection of songs and artists and great value for money

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper folk music at a bargain price 26 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a folk fan but I like to have some in my collection for when the mood strikes and for adding to my more esoteric playlists to spice the flavours up. This fits the bill sonically and price wise. I also get to increase my knowledge of contemporary folk to boot. Proper value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best 2 quid you'll ever spend. 18 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
10 excellent tracks from artists at the top of their game.

From Bellowhead's lively rendition of Lillibulero, through Heidi Talbot's haunting 'My Sister The Moon', to Show of Hands west country anthem 'Now You Know', seriously there isn't a bad track here.

If there was any justice in the music world, this would be the next Christmas number one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good selection at an amazing price 17 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unlike many collections this is a very good choice, and at a price that was unbelievable. A chance to listen to some artists that you might not have heard; but all very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good modern folk 'sampler' 17 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've bought a few of these compilation CDs from Amazon and they are all excellent value for money, this one being particularly so. If you're interested in modern British folk music, this is an excellent collection, the only down side is that if you collect/listen to other similar music, for example Bellowhead, you may already have some of the tracks. But the tracks are good, well balanced and if you're unsure about 'folk' music, this could be a good introduction for you because it not only shows how good the musicians are, it also gives a balance across some of the modern sub-sets of folk. Go buy it, it's worth it !!!
