This review is from: The Moral Of The Elephant (Audio CD)
Father and daughter from the royal family of the English folk revival offer us a set of songs, mostly not often performed in traditional music circles: an interesting selection. Martin's voice is no longer as strong as when I first heard him - but that was 50 years ago, so it's hardly surprising. Eliza's strong voice sounds more and more like her mother's at its peak. The absence of Martin's wife/Eliza's mother Norma Waterson from this recording is presumably due to Norma's recent health problems, and it's a pity because the Waterson-Carthy series of records with all three of them sharing the singing were remarkably fine, but this new album is very good indeed. If you like serious and committed folksong that respects the tradition, this is for you.
