Customer Review

on 2 December 2012
I know some fans don't like their favourite artists re-recording their work for compilation albums, but I do. I remember when Gordon Lightfoot released the two "Gord's Gold" albums, most of the tracks had been re-recorded and they were given wonderful new life. For me, it's the same here.

Kate Rusby has been quite brave in not only re-working these tunes, but also by bringing in artists she admires - and, for me, they all work! There isn't a bad track on the album. I even include Baa Baa Black Sheep in this statement - 27 seconds of little Daisy singing is fine by me. I also think we can now confirm that Kate is a pretty darn good songwriter. These are great songs, with Kate's voice is in great shape and all her fellow vocalists play their part in making the album such a success. However, I want to say how much I loved the instrumentation on this album - I love the use of the electric guitar, as on 'The Wild Goose' - inspired.

I was surprised by Paul Weller's rendition of 'Sun Grazers', which is fabulous; my other favourite is 'Who Will Sing Me Lullabies' with Richard Thompson - but it would be wrong to pick out just a couple for the twenty.
