The very best of traditional folk in a modern idiom,
By A Customer
This review is from: Penguin Eggs (Audio CD)
I loved Nic Jones from my first experience of his live performance at the folk club at university in the late 60's. So much so that I bought both his first two LPs by special order. After some years (25) I discovered this CD and bought it without the slightest hesitation. I discovered anew how his choice of songs, distinctive arrangements and sympathetic treatments of songs on a wide range of topics, ages and subjects is unparalleled. His command of his guitar and his unusual distinctive rhythmic patterns fit his material perfectly. I recommend any Nic Jones material to anyone interested in any traditional or modern folk music. The tragedy is that his public career was cut short by a car accident some years ago, and now only performs rarely for friends, but luckily we can still enjoy the legacy of his recorded music.
