5.0 out of 5 stars Now go to...., 18 May 2013
I'm listening to it for the first time now. It's gorgeous, and though I'm a folkie rather than a jazzie I've always liked Tabor's more jazzy stuff as it suits her voice so well. Now go buy "Ashore", her 2011 masterpiece, which was overshadowed by the excellent but flawed Ragged Kingdom collaboration. Whilst lacking the jazz element, Ashore - like this - has the spare, undecorated, quiet, and powerful vocals: understated and overwhelming.

I have only got mere 900 or so albums, collected over 42 years (which, I agree, makes me an old git). North Star Grassman came in as my no 1 when I first bought it in 1971, and nothing has ever knocked it off its perch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her Best, 20 Oct 2011
I have every JT album. This is the best.

It IS sombre, but it's magnificent.

If it doesn't get the BBC "folk album of the year" I must have missed something.
