Product Description

Sally Barker is best known as the star of The Voice 2014 and as a founding member of folk group The Poozies, but that is not to say the quality of her expansive solo catalogue is in any way lacking. The Compilation - Another Train was released in 2000 and chronicles here solo career quite concussively to that point. You won't hear Dear Darlin' or Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood, but this album is a must-have for any that were captivated by her voice and tearjerking performances. This album features music from Sally's self-titled debut, released in 1989, to her 1998 release Passion And The Countless. This compilation is a fantastic starting point for anyone interested in Sally's solo work and, thanks to the inclusion of a few formerly unreleased tracks, it holds appeal for dedicated fans too.

I bought this after seeing Sally on The Voice and have listened to it daily. She has a very haunting voice, which compels me to listen. Some of the songs I liked immediately; others have grown on me. I've never been a particular fan of folk music, but I'm definitely now a fan of Sally Barker.

Honestly, I have played this at least twice a week since buying it .... it's that good !! I heard Sally sing on The Voice TV show and loved her voice so much. I searched the net to find her CDs (I knew she had made about 5 from reading bits on the net). If you like a good pure voice with amazing real-life lyrics - then buy this CD - you won't regret it!! I have played it to visiting friends and they also thought it was amazing.

If you don't have Sally's other albums a great way to pick up a flavour of what she is about (intelligent, powerful song writing, passionate vocals and great song selection.) The opening track is a fantastic version of Pete Morton's uplifting and moving song 'Another Train' and then moves on to show case the range of Sally's talent. I can't get through Sleepy Eyes without being reduced to tears but I guess you need to read the story behind the song to fully understand what is going on so buy the CD version. A deeply powerful and moving CD.

I decided to buy this after watching Sally sing 'walk on by' on the voice... it made me feel like I was listening to the 'earth singing' through a lovely gentle soul...

The songs are different and show her versatility...the voice is distinctive...I have it playing in the house and car....... it's a growing classic and will probably become quite a land mark album for her before she records new material....

A beautiful lady

Sally is exceptional. Truly amazing album. Thanks for Voice for bringing her talent to attention. I hope she wins it. I would her never know that talent like this exists – thank to Tom Jones spotting her.

If anyone watched her blind audition on the Voice, you will know that Sally Barker has already had a career in music .. and with some success. This compilation takes selection from the material she recorded in the early nineties.

Most of it is very good - "Another Train", "Sleepy Eyes" and "Elephants" are excellent tracks, as is "While You Sleep", "Moses" and "We Built Fires". However, perhaps my favourite track is "Alexis Korner (Still Sings the Blues in Heaven)", a wonderful bit of blues (what else). Sally's voice is unmistakeably hers and a lot of the tracks are her own compositions. "Alexis Korner" is just a wonderful exhibition of how to sing with the kind of growl and without the screeching which some singers think they need to let everyone know they can sing. Most fail, but Sally succeeds beautifully.

There are a couple of tracks I do not like - "Nocturnal Visions" and "Die Sorge" do nothing for me and her version of Genesis's "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)" is a mistake - she should have left that alone.

Having said all that, not only does she sing well, but her guitar playing is brilliant and her backing musicians are excellent, too.

Sally was also a founder member of the all-female folk/pop band, the Poozies, in which Kate Rusby also had a stint as singer. I love Kate, but think Sally was a better singer for the band - and the Poozies retrospective "Raise Your Head" is a very good companion album to buy with this.

So, just to recap - this is not an introduction to the Sally Barker we saw and loved on the Voice, but a snapshot of her previous career as described. Don't be misled into thinking "Dear Darling" is going to be on this - it isn't. I, along with a lot of other people, will wait in case Sally records a new album with that and other new tracks on it. Until then, this will do nicely.

Sally Barker has a heart wrenchingly beautiful voice, perhaps more suited to jazz than folk music; having said that, the music on this album is a thoughtful mix of folky, jazzy, mildly rocky crossover.Unfortunately,about half of the material is a bit weak and short of strong musical ideas. Exceptions are "Elephants " and "We Built Fires", which on their own are worth the price of the album.

I am so very very happy I purchased this cd. If I hadn't seen this superb artist Sally Barker on The Voice tv programme, I probably would never have had the most extreme pleasure of hearing her haunting voice and playing this great cd over and over. I had to stop driving my car whilst playing this cd as track 4 reduced me to tears - it was so emotional. Anyone who has not bought this cd should do so immediately - to me it's the best cd I have ever purchased and I have several hundreds in my collection of vinyl and cd's. Thanks so much Sally Barker, you are a beautiful singer and I am extremely pleased you came back to the business after raising your boys. Also many thanks to Tom Jones for picking her to be on his team. Incidentally, I received the cd very quickly indeed after purchase. Thanks very much.
