4.0 out of 5 stars Copshawholme Fair, 9 Nov 2007
The title of this revies says it all: "Copshawholme Fair" is an amazing track! Starting off like a normal Bellowhead track it imediatly becomes powerful and Boden's voice, as ever, pours out fantastically.

The first two tracks on the EP, "Rambling Sailor" and "Jack Robertson" are brilliant, "Rambling Sailor" itself is very exciting.

In all this is a good EP, and it matches "Burlesque" for talent and flair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second CD rocks, 30 Sep 2007
This is a really great CD, apart from all the fantastic tracks, there's the whole concert atmosphere crammed onto two CDs.

The first CD is probably not as good as the second, although it does have two very good tracks (Longdog and Be Lucky) on it.

The second CD has a lot more fantastic tracks - Galway Farmer (teamed with The Blind Fiddler), Are We Alright, Cousin Jack and Country Life. Also, three or four minuites after the song on track elleven has finnished, there are some of the outakes from various concerts, which are quite funny!

The tracks are taken from a lot of different concerts, but they're all good and the sound on all of them is great… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best!, 30 Sep 2007
This had to be one of the all time best Kate Rusby albums. It has fantastic songs and a lot of them are either fast and memorable, or slower but at the same time catchy. All the tracks on this CD are actually very well done, but the best ones have to be:

Sir Eglamore - it's a song about a dragon. Who couldn't love that? It had a really good sort of repeating line as well, that keeps the tune going and adds to the overall flavour of the track.

Radio Sweethearts - A sweet old tune about an old couple waltzing to a radio. You would think that it would be slow and set to a waltz it self, but it goes at a medium pace and has a veyr nice little melody to it!
