4.0 out of 5 stars Never known to make a foolish move.., 7 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Wesley Harding (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of Thea's since discovering her covers album "Loft Music" and was intrigued by the idea of her covering an entire album as she does here.

Stand-out tracks for me are "Pity The Poor Immigrant" (which comes close to the soul wrenching of Joan Baez's version)and "I Dreamed I Saw St Augustine" closely followed by "All Along The Watch Tower" is a fascinating reinterpretation that stays away from Dylan's own and from Hendrix too. Probably one of the most effective uses of double tracked echo I've heard. Excellent!

Thea's voice is ideally pitched for these songs and the sparse backing and simple production fit them well.

The CD jewell case comes in a box with a nice pack of 12x12 cards - one for each track with some artwork on one side and the song lyrics on the other. It won't stop the rush to digital download from solid disks but it's a nice add on (as it was on Thea's last album, "Murphy's Heart"). Warning though - If you're OCD about alphabeticising your CD collection and have fixed size shelves, the box won't fit!

"Never known to make a foolish move" must apply to Thea's musical choices too.
