This review is from: Let No Man Steal Your Thyme (Audio CD)
Whilst the title of this collection might suggest a collection of traditional folk songs, this is stunning original material from McDonald - in many ways the equal of Joni Mitchell, and very similar to Fairport Convention (without the dodgy Dylan covers!)The songs are passionate and delicate folk-rock with some lovely piano and organ arrangements, all sounding lush, fresh and confident.
Also don't be discouraged by this 2 CD set being filled out with outtakes and demos. The unreleased stuff like "The Road To Paradise" are as superb as her two official albums. In short this CD is essential material...
