A Unique Talent,
This review is from: The Very Best Of Jake Thackray (Audio CD)
Being a young lad of only 23 Years, I never knew Jake at the hight of his fame, goodness only knows why i had to accidentally stumble over his music to hear anything by him. He should be a national tresure. He manipulates the English language in a way words can't really do justice to describe. The more up tempo songs i particularly enjoy 'the lodger' 'billy kershaw' 'gypsy' & 'on again!' spring to mind, but they are all good, apart from 'molly metcalf' which shouldnt really be on a very best of collection.
Given the chance i would have put the 'castleford ladies magical circle' and 'family tree' on this collection.
