Customer Review

on 7 August 2012
Like other reviewers, I feel a little shamefaced that I haven't caught these three before, especially since I've been onto the Watersons since the mid-60s, Swan Arcade (Boyes was in that group) and other a capella folkies. This album is close-harmony singing of the very best, with an excellent choice of songs. It doesn't limit itself to a genre of song, and so if you are unsure about "folk" music (useless label...) you can be reassured that it's just excellent, moving, amusing, entertaining music, with added gooseflesh effect from time to time! It's "political" in places (another useless label - like the rest of our lives as social animals, one might add) but it doesn't thump tubs and weary ears with it - it simply makes you think, nod and smile (or frown, depending on your views.) I guess you could say it's smoother in the harmonies, perhaps more sophisticated and more varied than than the great a capella groups of the late 60s and seventies (aforementioned Watersons, or Swan Arcade or Staverton bridge.) but if I'm making it sound like barbershop - it's not. It goes down the soles of your feet.

OK, enough categorising. Really fine album. I'm off to make up for lost time. I'm on to you, lads!
