At last, at last - Galleries and Chicken on a raft on CD!I have been waiting for YEARS!!!! Here you get the eponymous Young Tradition, and So cheerfully round as well. The latter have been available for a while, but its worth duplicating in order to get Galleries and COAR!
This is the complete Young Tradition oeuvres, apart from "The holly bears the crown" Christmas collection (also highly recommended!), and they could do no wrong, as far as I am concerned. All 3 were superb interpreters of traditional music, with 3 unique voices that blended so well when singing in ensemble. It is such a tragedy that Royston Wood and Peter Bellamy were taken from us so soon. They all produced wonderful solo material too, as the Young Tradition did not stay together that long, more's the pity. It seems incredible that these recordings are over 40 years old now. They are mono, of course, but have been well re-mastered, and the sound quality is absolutely fine - nice and sharp.
It's pointless me continuing to rave! This is the best recording event that's happened to me in ages!! Buy buy buy!!
