4.0 out of 5 stars Shows no sign of aging, even after 24 years., 16 Jun. 2001

This review is from: Dancer With Bruised Knees (Audio CD)
This record, the sisters' second, was released in 1977. This was not realised when I bought it on spec at a record sale, and it is not at all obvious when you hear it. It isn't just another pair of warbling folkies; the songs are varied considerably so it is quite hard to categorise. The tunes are much memorable, and the whole album has a certain something that makes its sum greater than its parts. I have since bought several more of the sisters' albums, and haven't been at all disappointed. I particularly like the songs in French (they are French Canadians I believe) making the various attempts of English groups to sing in French (eg Fairport Convention) sound very amateurish. This is the real thing. 'Blanche Comme La Neige' is the story of a young French girl who has to feign death to preserve her honour when feted by a Captain, whereas 'Perrine Etait Servante' tells the story of a servant girl and her beau, who lock the priest in the larder and then forget him. Both are very catchy - try them out on any young French language students! A record to keep and savour.
