Product description

Product Description

Re-issue at mid-price. 40 years ago in 1972, Iain Matthews and Andy Roberts, already music business veterans, formed Plainsong, a ground-breaking vocal harmony quartet, and recorded the much-loved album In Search Of Amelia Earhart. In 1990, they recruited multi-instrumentalist Mark Griffiths (lead guitarist in Iain's Matthews Southern Comfort) and Julian Dawson, a talented singer and writer, who brought his harmonica, guitar and banjo playing to the mix. Over the next 13 years the band recorded 6 albums, toured extensively in the UK and on the continent and built a strong following amongst lovers of acoustic music. With four experienced songwriters on board, a stream of high quality material was always to hand, augmented by well-chosen covers. Before they parted in 2003, they recorded a set of songs in Holland, playing live before an invited studio audience. The performance is free of the usual tricks and overdubbing that are commonplace in the music business - just four great voices, a superb collection of songs and now a fitting reminder of Plainsong at its best. In August 2012, Iain, Andy, Julian and Griff are to make a farewell tour as a tribute to the 40 years since the original line-up and will release that 'live-in-the-studio' album, now called Fat Lady Singing. The 19 songs on the CD are drawn from almost all eras of Plainsong's history. The satisfyingly eclectic mix spans classics such as "Yo Yo Man" and "Raider" from the Amelia album, through to many of the fine songs from Pangolins. Highlights include Andy's never before released rendition of "Charlie", a perennial live favourite, to the epic "Sloth", Iain's nod to his former colleagues in Fairport Convention. Weaving throughout all the songs are those unmistakable Plainsong vocal harmonies, Julian's evocative harmonica, Griff's majestic fretless bass, Andy's Appalachian dulcimer and bouzouki, all in support of Iain's soaring voice.
