Beautiful and quirky
on 22 August 2013
I've long been a follower of June Tabor and this unusual and haunting album is a luscious addition to her canon. Like many other people, I was initially concerned about what seemed like distortion on the saxophone - though it's also worth saying that's more noticeable and intrusive when listening on headphones, and less of a problem when using speakers.
The version of Butterworth's Lads In Their Hundreds (a long term favourite of mine from the English song repertoire) is outstanding.
