This review is from: A Celebration Of Great British Folk (Audio CD)
This is a compilation of a few songs by classic British Folk singers like Ewan MacColl and later, non-essential songs by some of the great Bands of the late 60s folk revival like Fairport Convention, mixed with some contemporary junk.
I guess that the only logic in choosing the tracks for this compilation was to keep the licencing fee as low as possible. Cheated among all these great names are the two no-names Jack Hallam and Straight Furrow. Whilst the latter do some traditional irish folk on cheap synths, Mr. Hallam delivers two unbearable cheesy pop-songs.
Unlike as in same lables fine compilations of Bluegrass and Blues music, there are no liner notes. No wonder why...
