Tyneside songs. A selection of the popular repertoire sung in natural dialect and a close in, understated vocal style accompanied by original arrangements for two acoustic guitars. Recorded with my pal James Birkett, a great guitarist. The CD has received considerable local radio airplay. The album has two lovely guitar solo pieces from James (Bonny at Morn, Water of Tyne), a slower than usual version of 'Blaydon Races', a calypso version of 'Geordie's Penker', a new melody for 'Row between the cages'. Track Listing - - Keep your feet still Geordie hinny, Wor Geordie's lost his penker, Sair Fyeld Hinny, When this aad hat was new, Wherever ye gan your sure to find a Geordie, Bonny at Morn*, Bobby Shaftoe, Canny old Blaydon, Blaydon Races, Billy Boy, Water of Tyne*, Lambton Worm, Gan Canny, The row between the cages, Big River, Fog on the Tyne. (* Bonny at Morn & Water of Tyne are guitar solos ie. purely instrumental pieces). REVIEW COMMENT - - -The Blaydon Aces have come up a glorious celebration of Tyneside with a selection of songs synonymous with the region. Veitch's vocals really draw you in (augmented by some sterling guitar and banjo work from the pair) and the familiar nature of some of the songs are given impetus by some original arrangements. For example, 'Wor Geordie's Lost His Penker' has a lovely calypso feel. Tremendous stuff. GM - The Crack magazine, July 2012. Please check out several excerpts on YouTube which give a good indication of the general style and approach to the songs eg. Bobby Shafto, Lambton Worm, Wor Geordie lost his penker, Fog on the Tyne, Blaydon Races.
