This review is from: Mighty Joe Moon (Audio CD)
What can I say, twenty odd years on and I've just discovered them. This is a simply brilliant piece of work from what were/are a vastly underrated band. This is proper American folk/rock, lyrically excellent and musically outstanding. How these guys were never superstars of REM proportions I will never know. If you are undecided, fear not, buy this little beauty and you wont regret it.....and then go back and buy 'Fuzzy'.

What a great album, very reminiscent of Oysterband or Jez Lowe, Mainly upbeat, this is top drawer folk/rock from a sadly, now defunct, band.

This is such a good album. Josh is an English singer songwriter with an incredible voice and an outstanding songwriting ability. I really hope there is more to come in the future. As they say Josh, the cream always rises to the top, please keep at it.

This is a fine album by a vastly underrated band. Pitched somewhere between Oysterband and Jez Lowe they are very talented songwriters and musicians. Unfortunately they are no longer together as a unit but they leave behind a great back catalogue of commercial folk/rock music. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just wonderful!, 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This a great album for those who like the wilder, more extreme regions of our wonderful English folk scene, as was the equally brilliant 'Angels And Cigarettes'. I love all aspects of folk, both traditional and modern, no point at all in being a musical snob. This fantastic album takes English folk by the teeth and gives it a good scragging just as any Jack Russell worth its' name would do. It is a delight, make no mistake and possibly Elizas' best work in an illustrious career. Try it if you dare!

I came across this album entirely by accident, serendipity you might say. On further investigation it was recorded in a garden shed and is so delicate, quaint and undoubtedly eccentric it is a one off. It feels like she is giving an intimate performance for you and you alone. This is modern folk music without the gloss that, for me, often detracts from what is sheer class in its purest state. All I can say is, if you like contemporary folk music, give this a listen. I doubt you will regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faultless., 28 April 2013
When I'm about to purchase a new hi-fi, even if it's just for the bedroom, I go daft looking at reviews and such like.
On this occasion my choice was narrowed down to a Roberts, a Bose and this little beauty. As you might now realise I
went for the Yamaha and I do not regret it at all. It looks great, has superb build quality, is incredibly versatile
and most importantly sounds fantastic. It's hard to believe such a neat, compact player can deliver such a full, dynamic
sound. My primary system is Marantz and Tannoy based, delivering lots of power but this little guy somehow seems a lot more satisfying.
If you decide to buy it I'm confident you wont be disappointed.

This is a very easy going, West Coast America style album with a large chunk of folk loaded into the mix
Another great addition to the massive library of superb Canadian music.

Yeah, these guys aren't Fairport but they are a class act. If you like the very early Fairport stuff you will enjoy
this album. I love it. Modern folk at it's very best. More power to your elbows chaps!
