4.0 out of 5 stars What more can you ask for!!, 27 April 2010
This review is from: 2 (Audio CD)
I've been a Sandy Denny fan since first time i heard her!! 1969 something -
(FC's Unhalfbricking) - She's most surely missed !! She's up in the alley of Billie Holliday and Ella F. And could she write songs as well !!

Well, short of words here i'm afraid - i'm just surprised that she is so 'little known' - or hopefully i'm wrong - Britain's first lady of song will be remembered and missed as long as there are music listening people on this planet !!

Down to business then - Fotheringay too (2) - lovely as always - Most of the songs here i'd heard before - 'Late November' (A favourite SD's songs this) - Not quite sure but think this is the EL Pea version (Island sampler primo seventies) Anywhichway it's lovely - and the rest more than good enough - 'John the gun' - the take here i hadn't heard before - and if you ask me worth the price alone - The band - Gerry Conway on drums, Pat Donaldson on bass - guitar player like Jerry Donahue - Trevor's voice and acoustic-guitar and like mentioned above Sandy's songs and voice - she still makes me cry - well it doesn't get much better than this - it was shelved for 36 soemthing years - and for me more than worth the wait!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What more can ye ask for, 8 Jan 2010
Transatlantic sessions has been impressive (from day 1) - and Series 4 is no exceptions - Danny Thompson there as well - in addition to Donal Lunny and Aly Bain AND maybe my favorite (if you leave RT out) - Jerry Douglas. Guests as well - a o James Taylor - not bad to say the least - Could we hope for a series 5 with Richard Thompson in it??

This review is from: Djef Djel (Audio CD)
Ale Møller Band's Djef Djel

a wonderful musician (up in the Donal Lunny (or Aly Bain) alley) - everything i've heard from this geezer is superb and Djef Djel is no exception - worth every penny !!


Manskratt
Manskratt

4.0 out of 5 stars Månskratt, 16 Mar 2009
This review is from: Manskratt (Audio CD)
Lena Willemark's (if you ask me) just as important to Swedish folk-music as Sandy Denny was to the British!!
She sings beautifully and Månskratt is one of her best !!
A must this one !!
