Golddiggas, Headnodders & Pholk Songs,
This review is from: Golddiggas, Headnodders & Pholk Songs (Audio CD)
A fan of The Beautiful South since the beginning I was both pleased and intrigued to hear of this new album, especially as it was a first for them, being a whole album of cover versions.
In a word, fantastic!
Most, if not all of the tracks have been presented at an easy-going ballad type pace, although there are a couple of upbeat offerings, including the latest single "This Old Skin".
Album highlights include; ELO's Livin' Thing, who'd have thought this could be bettered? The lovely acoustic guitar on Blitzkrieg Bop and the brilliant "You're the one that I want"
One other fine point which seemed to have been missed by other reviewers is the superb artwork on the album cover. Always great to see so much effort put into every aspect of the whole product.
