Almost entirely instrumental (hence Tunes to accompany the sister album Songs) Great musicianship, catchy jigs reels and hornpipes, recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spiers and Boden - Tunes, 20 Oct 2010
This review is from: Tunes (Audio CD)
Intricate and joyous with the typical S&B signature cord changes throughout together with the 'Phil Spector' sound whether through the I Pod or through a booming set of Boses. There's a wonderful mix of the trad and modern all mixed up. A delightful and uplifting combination guaranteed to make you wish you could play as well as them. Almost as good as them live in concert. Recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tunes, 30 Aug 2011

This review is from: Tunes (Audio CD)
Yes, these are folk tunes. I miss the singing a little, however, and so will have to go and buy the sister album 'songs'. But as i knew there were no songs, i can hardly complain. Its fun, played with enthusiasm (as everything is with S and B) and well worth buying. There are quite a few S and B albums out now. This might not be the best one (The Works, Vagabonds, Bellow are clearly the front runners), but its a worthy addition to their output nonetheless.

This is my second copy of the CD by Spiers & Boden - Tunes, because I play it all the time, whether I'm in the Car or at home.

This review is from: Tunes (Audio CD)
I bought this album a while back, and I can say it's a good folk album. Sportsman's Hornpipe is a really good tune, but as the album progresses, the tracks don't really have the same effect. Yes, they are good tracks, but not brilliant.
It isn't the best album Spiers and Boden have done, but it does have it's focal points.
If you are buying a Spiers and Boden album for the first time, I suggest either Vagabond (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Vagabond-Spiers-Boden/dp/B00180WVQ2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1310023861&sr=8-2), a great album probably their best studio one. Or The Works, (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Works-Spiers-Boden/dp/B00568T6X8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310023861&sr=8-1), which is a compilation album containing their best tracks. Although it is not released yet, I managed to get the album at one of their live performances, I've had a listen. All the tracks are re-recorded, and all sound great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice set of Tunes, 1 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tunes (MP3 Download)
I haven't bought any music for a while, and I've only just started listening to Spiers and Boden. It's a very nice set of tunes, traditional English music, well played too. I play traditional music so appreciate the finer points going on in the playing. It's also a good blast for those that like to.....blast!
If you've not heard good English stuff recently then it's worth listening to this.
