An acquired taste,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Very Best Of Jake Thackray (Audio CD)
I used to like Jake Thackray, with his plummy voiced irony, and then recently went to a folk festival where several singers performed his songs and I realised just how good they were so I bought this album. By today's standards some of Jake's lyrics are not PC, even on the misogynistic side (as he acknowledges), but his wit and musical artistry are superb, and some pieces really touching.
