Be patient and listen carefully,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gentle Men (MP3 Download)
There will no doubt be a plethera of tributes and projects to mark the centenary of the First World War over the next few months.
I purchased this without really knowing what was coming and on first listen I was a little disappointed as the music passed me by without engaging me. I thought I should give it a second chance and whilst listening to the album in one sitting it permeated my thick skin and by the time I reached the heartbreaking "The Whistle" and "Home By Christmas (2)" I was won over. I would recommend anyone interested in folk music and social history should give this a go but let yourself have the chance to really listen. This is not background music but demands your attention.
I'll definitely be checking out more of Mr Johnson's music.
