4.0 out of 5 stars Celtic music as it is supposed to be, 26 Mar 2010
By 
Mr. N. J. Harding (Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Raise Your Head: A Retrospective (Audio CD)
This retrospective draws on the bands first three albums, Chantoozies, Dansoozies, Infinite Blue and the EP Come Raise Your Head. At the core of the group are Mary Macmaster (electro-harp, metal-strung harp, percussion, vocals) and Patsy Seddon (electro-harp, gut-strung harp, fiddle, percussion, vocals) who also play as the duo Sileas. Around them a number of other musicians have come and gone including Kate Rusby.

The album kicks of with a Rusby vocal number, `The Widow', a fantastic folk song and one of the best that Kate has ever recorded in my opinion. Contrast this with the more mainstream radio friendly sounds of `We built fires' which has received heavy airplay and been used on tv. This sums up the band perfectly; there is a stack of talent on display and they really can turn their hand successfully to almost anything.

The band have Celtic roots and this is predominant throughout but neither in a twee tartan style or fist punching pomposity, they carry the tradition with style and songs like the instrumental `Willie's old trousers' and `The Baytree set' illustrate this perfectly.

This is real good time music, played with passion and no little skill. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Folking Fantastic, 18 Jan 2001
This review is from: Raise Your Head: A Retrospective (Audio CD)
How did I discover The Poozies,all thanks to Amazon if you must know. A recent convert to Folk and with little or no knowledge i trawled through Amazons site listening to samples.The best 2 songs on the album tracks Honesty & Company of Women are not even sampled and I still bought it. Then having listened to it I was blown away by the whole CD. Fr those just starting out on the Folk road give this a go.
