Tales of Love War & Death by Hanging,
This review is from: Tales Of Love War & Death By Hanging (MP3 Download)A masterful work by a truly accomplished musician and songwriter.
Many tracks evoke thoughts and feelings of historical events ('The Puritan' - Civil War, and 'The Grey Goose Wing' - Agincourt) but set in a musical context that links the past with the present. 'I Kiss the Night' (as good as Nick Drake at his best!), The Dark Days are Over' and 'In your Sweet Arms' are moving, timeless, love songs written and composed by Ray.
I was privileged to see Ray Cooper perform to a small audience on the 22nd November 2010, and can highly recommend that you visit his website and catch one of his live, solo performances. (or with the Oysterband)
Not just for 'folk' afficianados, but for anyone that is inspired by a great musical talent.
