Oddly enough, the only misstep (for me) is the first track: Awkward Annie - I just found it a bit, awkward. "Unquiet Grave" almost had me in tears of sadness, "Who will sing me lullabies" had me even closer to the edge but "Planets" is simply gorgeous. "The Good Man" was the first Kate Rusby track I ever heard and I love the new version. My favourite track is probably "Underneath The Stars" which features the Grimethorpe Colliery Band - a beautiful song which somehow manages to be even better than the original.
All in all, a fabulous listen both for existing fans of Rusby and those wanting to find out what the fuss is all about. This is an album made by someone confident in her craft and ready for another 20.
And as for Baa Baa Black Sheep. "Cute" doesn't cut it!
Kate Rusby has been quite brave in not only re-working these tunes, but also by bringing in artists she admires - and, for me, they all work! There isn't a bad track on the album. I even include Baa Baa Black Sheep in this statement - 27 seconds of little Daisy singing is fine by me. I also think we can now confirm that Kate is a pretty darn good songwriter. These are great songs, with Kate's voice is in great shape and all her fellow vocalists play their part in making the album such a success. However, I want to say how much I loved the instrumentation on this album - I love the use of the electric guitar, as on 'The Wild Goose' - inspired.
I was surprised by Paul Weller's rendition of 'Sun Grazers', which is fabulous; my other favourite is 'Who Will Sing Me Lullabies' with Richard Thompson - but it would be wrong to pick out just a couple for the twenty.
Anyway, the CD is excellent and the "new " versions of these songs are all very good. Especially love the short track of Kate's daughter singing a nursery rhyme - so cute and an obvious star of the future.
As you would expect, Kate Rusby's voice is achingly beautiful. The Rusby sound is still intact but the guests add new detail and depth to the songs. I found that the more different the guest vocalists' voices were, the more I liked the results. It's always lovely to hear Eddi Reader but, so far, the standout track for me has been 'Sungrazers'. As soon as Paul Weller chimed in I surprised myself by spontaneously burst into tears. It is a beautiful track and I love the combination of their voices.
I can't wait to get further into listening to this, it will bear many, many listenings. It is great value and it doesn't matter if you already have all of the original tracks, there will be something different for you here. I can't recommend this highly enough.
Many / most of the songs are not new and original material. However, Kate Rusby has successfully managed to give a new take on them in new recordings and using very talented guest artists to record with.
It is a fab collection, with a huge amount of talent spilling over into each track. Great for relaxing with at the end of a long day.
