Customer Review

on 9 February 2012
In these times of austerity, to make your way in the world, even if it is just the `folk' world you have to diversify and Jackie Oates it must be acknowledged is a prime example of `diversification' being not only a fine musician/vocalist but also promoting her own range of cosmetics. The sweet smell of success not only lies in the "Lush" colour supplement which, to quote her company byline "...is a light, soothing and gentle base for pale skin types, which are often sensitive and prone to redness..." but extends to her creative musical interpretations of predominantly traditional songs. Reading her sleeve notes, this is a lady who is proud of her association with Devon and included in the recording's repertoire we have "The Sweet Nightingale", "Poor Murdered Woman" and a nicely upbeat version of the old chestnut "Marrow Bones". Expanding her colourful excursions in company with, amongst others, Mike Cosgrave (piano and accordion), Dalla's superb mandolin player Neil Davey and everyone's cellist of choice Barney Morse-Brown this is an album that exudes quality. Oates obviously enjoys her music and by the way she interprets it you, the listener will not help to be captivated by its charm.
