5.0 out of 5 stars Folk music a cappella, 29 April 2009

This review is from: Holly Wood (Audio CD)
With Canada's Finest Kind, the Voice Squad are probably the best a cappella folk group around.

This album, however, is not a new one — it's simply 1993's Good People All with the tracks shuffled.

Still, with that album now deleted, and the second-hand prices inflated (as I write), this is the one to buy.

Their albums are pretty thin on the ground, their first, Many's the Foolish Youth, being the only other one I'm aware of.

They also appear on the DVD Come West Along the Road (singing "The Bonny Light Horseman"); and they have two stunning tracks singing harmony behind Niabh Parsons on John Renbourn's Traveller's Prayer, and two more on Arcady's Many Happy Returns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great voices..., 21 April 2009

This review is from: Holly Wood (Audio CD)
I saw this 'cappela' group on an RTE compilation album, singing 'My Bonnie Light Horseman' and I was hooked. The CD is a very satisfying mix of traditional ballads, carols, and some songs which are less easy to 'classify'. The three mens voices harmonize and meld beautifully, making for compelling listening, though it is so relaxing you may just nodd off! I would recommend this album unreservedly, for it's dedicated quality, and also to enjoy something that is very different from so much samey 'mainstream' offerings.

If you are a fan of three-part harmonies and/or acapella, then this is worth buying.
Their version of "The Parting Glass" is up there with the Clancys and Wailin' Jennys. Intensely beautiful!
