5.0 out of 5 stars Barbara Dickson at her very best!, 25 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Time And Tide (Audio CD)
This is a stunning album. Barbara Dickson at her very best. Creative, thoughtful, superbly sung and produced. A masterly weaving of traditional and contemporary songs, the latter including 'Palm Sunday' co- written by Barbara and producer, Troy Donockley.

Other highlights here are the glorious 'Dream Angus' 'The Witch of the Westmerlands' 'The Lowlands of Holland' and the 'Rigs o Rye' but every track is a creative gem and there's no doubt that Dickson is now at the height of her powers as a singer and musician.

It's sad. (but predictable) that a tiny minority of so-called 'fans' are determined to confine Barbara Dickson to the bland easy listening pop of the 1980s. She is - and always has been - too good to waste her talent and glorious voice on such banal stuff. Don't know when the Northern Ireland reviewer last saw Barbara Dickson live but here on the mainland the tours of the past few years have seen constant sold out halls and standing ovations.

if you want 'January February' style pop - buy one of the endless compilation CDs. However if you want an inspired collection of superb traditional and contemporary songs from one of the finest female singers Britain has ever produced - buy Time and Tide. You will love it!
