Disappointing..background noise issue
on 2 February 2014
I was really looking forward to this recording, after hearing June Tabor at Cambridge Folk Festival and having loved her voice for years. However, the first time I listened to it I couldn't help but be really quite annoyed by the background 'slurping' which has been noted by other reviewers...and I can't see why it wasn't edited out. I am all in favour of live recordings, but I have never heard so much reed/water noise in my life ( and I am a freelance musician, playing mostly classical gigs but with experience of mics, amplification etc). To be perfectly honest, those tracks are ruined for me, and I only listen to the cd in the car as background, which is really not where June Tabor ought to be.
