I'm in a period of transatlantic sessions, and music from GB, otherwise I could have missed it. IT is a bargain, considering the amount of good music You get on these two...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings......
I hadn't come across Coope Boyes and Simpson before but am very glad I did - I really enjoyed all of the tracks on the free CD but found the Rough Guide to English Folk less enjoyable. I tended to like every second track - probably it is the nature of a compilation that there will be a variety of styles and artists and not all will appeal equally. For me, Kathryn Tickell,...

Excellent !! Some really nice new Tracks which I hadn't already got and great value too. On top of that, a whole Coope Boyes & Simpson CD thrown in. Again with many tracks I've never heard of in spite of being a CB&S fan ! Doesn't get better than that.......................

I tended to like every second track - probably it is the nature of a compilation that there will be a variety of styles and artists and not all will appeal equally. For me, Kathryn Tickell, The Imagined Village and Chris Wood can do no wrong but the new versions of Yarmouth Town, Adieu to Old England and Byker Hill were nowhere near as good as older versions. Perhaps I am just a stick in the mud oldie!

3.0 out of 5 stars very rough but enjoyable none the less, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given the amount of folk music/musicians these shores have produced, you are never going to be able to fit an anthology on one disc. What this album does is bring together a number of contemporary artists with some nice, but not their finest tunes. it's more of a multi-label sampler. This version, however, comes with a bonus CD from Coope, Boyes and Simpson who are masters of accapella folk tunes. Its not a great album, but for the price (cos it was a fiver when i bought it) it's worth the money.
