Bellowhead 1 - Doubting thomases 0,
This review is from: Burlesque [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Having seen Bellowhead live several times and fallen under the spell, having whirled my wife around the living room time and time again whilst listening to their earlier release EP.Onymous and been long time fans of the two Johns, Bowden and Spiers, we were really looking forward to this release, albeit with a touch of trepidation.
Well, we weren't disappointed with this at all; the wonderful version of Courting Too Slow brought tears to my ears, and the fantastically degenerate version of Flash Company brought tears of laughter.
Rigs of the Time and Sloe Gin capture exactly the essence of a live Bellowhead gig, and London Town is a well addressed version of an old standard.
Give your perception of Folk music the day off and listen to this album for it is surely destined to be a classic and remember - you heard it here first !
