5.0 out of 5 stars Essential album that remains timeless, 11 Mar 2009
This review is from: Trailer Park: Legacy Edition (Audio CD)
To say that this album got me through some bad times when it first came out is an understatement! I first heard Beth when the shop I was working in at the time was given a promo copy of her cover of "I Wish I Never Saw the Sunshine" and was instantly hooked by her incredible voice and the beauty and delicacy of her performance. I can honestly say that this has been the most important album of my life for quite a few years now. The new deluxe edition adds all of the B-Sides from the singles, the "Best Bit EP" featuring a truly astounding cover of Fred Neill's "Dolphins" with Terry Callier and "I Love How You Love Me" from the soundtrack to the film "Mojo". It's great to have all of these tracks in one place now and help to chart the progression from this to "Central Reservation" that followed. Other than an instrumental version that adds nothing to the original vocal all of these tracks are essential and help to show what has been going in the Nu-Folk genre over the past few years. Without this, artists such as Emmy the Great, Eliza Carthy and Kate Rusby might not be names on the peoples lips who don't tend to read Folk Roots! If you get the chance to see her live the songs just get even better. The opening few bars of "She Cries Your Name" still make the hairs on the back of my neck rise even now. Please, do yourself a favour and buy this NOW
