Product description

Product Description

Barbara Dickson's new album, the aptly titled Full Circle, finds Barbara returning once again to her musical roots. It contains 11 moving and emotional tracks, from traditional Irish and English to Scottish folk to Barbara's own take on 17th-century songs such as Purcell's "When I Am Laid in Earth". Barbara Dickson, singer, actress, songwriter and presenter is perhaps best known for her Laurence Olivier Award-winning role in Willy Russell's Blood Brothers, the smash hit TV show Band Of Gold and for her biggest musical hits "Another Suitcase in another Hall" and "I know Him So Well". But Barbara's career began in the folk circuit. At the age of 17 she began singing in evening spots as a folk singer in local pubs and clubs, and it's to these humble beginnings that she now looks with Full Circle.

I bought this album after seeing Barbara perform live. She is an old folkie and the content reflects this with some additional more current offerings. Best on the album for me is "Corpus Christie Carol", although "Faithless Love" also hits the spot. All in all the album is a fine tribute to a wonderful artist- worth every penny and then some.

I've watched Barbara Dicksons career closely over the years and always managed to see beyond the naffness of the music that labelled her to the pure ethereal voice that should define her. And now, finally she really has come Full Circle, with a sincere collection which illustrates what we always knew. She is the owner of one of the greatest voices in recording history. In the hands of a fine producer, this collection has the emotional depth worthy of such a voice and deserves to be heard by a wider audience.
There's no need for vocal gymnastics or pulsing productions when the depth of knowledge and experience Dickson has, can carry ancient and beautiful ballads like these to a greater level than any contemporary singer today could attempt. Listen to "Singing Bird", "Garten Mothers Lullaby " or "The Eriskay Love Song" and you'll be convinced that Barbara Dickson deserves to be allowed freedom from the confines of the easy listening category and a new respect for what she was always capable of. Just buy it and see.

From the moment that Barbara Dickson's unaccompanied vocal is replaced by a celtic swirl on opening track 'Garten Mother's Lament' it is obvious that this is an album of songs to be treasured.
With the confidence of a mature artist, Barbara Dickson has recorded an album of mainly traditional songs which suit her hauntingly melancholic voice to perfection. Her arrangements of these songs, written with producer Troy Donockley, are understated and effective, echoing the darker nature of many of the lyrics and allowing the vocal to carry each song.
Perhaps the one true spine-tingling moment comes with the inclusion of Purcell's 'When I am Laid in Earth' [from his opera 'Dido & Aeneas'], with its sparse piano accompaniment allowing the words to resonate - Barbara Dickson at her very best.
Altogether a wonderful album of what might loosely be termed a return to her roots in 'folk' music, although it is so much more.

Buy this cd ..even if it's only for the track "Faithless Love". Barbara's voice now sounds richer and deeper than you remember from the countless compilations and this song in particular compliments her now even more beautiful voice perfectly. Some of the folkier tracks won't be to everyone's taste...but it's still an excellent recording...head and shoulders above many of the CDs in the charts right now.

This new album from Barbara Dickson is a departure from her normal repertoire of show songs, love songs and collaborations with Elaine Paige, Benny Anderson and the like.
It's a haunting and beautiful collection of songs that she has always wanted to record.Beautifully produced, Barbara's voice has never sounded better. Pure and crystal clear she includes everything from Everly Bros. tunes to 18th century madrigals.
It's a stunning collection which will disappoint no one.

i have been a massive barbara dickson fan since 85 with chess,liked her 70s/80s material,must admit i didnt at first like her going back to her roots during the early 90s,but looking back-dark end of the street ,is a fine album,then this album was released,faithless love is a wonderful song with barbara in very fine voice,the unquiet grave-beautiful music,across the hills[a duet with midge ure]the standout track for me,for anyone interested in barbara dickson post pop era-then this is the album for you,i can understand people who bought this album and were dissapointed,they like barbaras voice and probably thought they were going to get songs like-january february,if youre right,caravans,run like the wind,i know him so well etc,thats what i thought when i bought 92s-dont think twice album,and again 94s parcel of rogues album,but i love her voice and i stick with a singer no matter what,full circle is the definitive barbara album for me..she has done what the title says and gone full circle..fab.

If you are a fan of Barbara Dickson or even if you aren't then this album is for you. If you are a fan then you will love this. And you aren't then this will surely convert you. This is back to Barbara's roots, hence the title Full Circle. There are some wonderful traditional folk songs on the album that Barbara has put her own stamp on. They are arranged beautifully and Barbara's voice is superb. If anything her voice has gotten better over time. The album is worth buying for the songs, "Faithless Love" and "Living Too Close To The Ground" alone. "Living Too Close To The Ground" is a personal favourite of mine and is a wonderful cover of The Everly Brothers. There's also the fantastic Troy Donockley who collaborated with Barbara to produce this album and brings his own magic to the arrangements. Barbara's voice with his arrangements is magnficant. It makes me appreciate all things folk and traditional.
