English Folk at its finest,
This review is from: Live At The Royal Albert Hall (Audio CD)
An excellent introduction to the music of Show Of Hands. I have successfully used this album several times in the past to introduce the idea of English Folk to those who may have previously associated it with people singing with their finger stuck in their ear. A fine mix of traditionals and self-penned tracks, this is one of the finest 'live' albums I have ever come across in the Genre.
On a side note, Steve & Phil (the performers) collected names from attendees at various small folk clubs they performed at over the years, questioning if they would be interested in coming to a gig at the Albert Hall in London. Having obtained enough encouragement to go through with the idea they hired the hall with their own funds, leading to a great success - captured on this album. Highly recommended.
