NICK DOW - MY LOVE YOU HAVE WON TO KEEP
This album is a welcome return to the folk scene for Nick Dow, a singer of mainly traditional songs. He has a warm, mellow, lived-in voice that invites comparison with Cyril Tawney and Dave Burland.
VIN GARBUTT - PLUGGED (LIVE)
Vin Garbutt is one of the most genuinely popular artistes that the folk revival has produced. He is also a writer who is not afraid to tackle the big issues.
SISTERS UNLIMITED - NO CHANGE OF HEART
Sisters Unlimited (Sandra Kerr, Janet Russell, Rosie Davis and Peta Webb) are four women with powerful voices who have performed together with the “wit and wisdom of womankind” for over 25 years. Well known as individual performers, their singing and music draw on the living traditions of England, Scotland, Ireland and America, while the material here - a hard-hitting collection of songs of political commitment - is largely contemporary.
THE DUNCAN MCFARLANE ACOUSTIC BAND - MARKED OUT IN PEGS
Duncan’s Acoustic Band’s first studio CD delivers typically robust and lively (yet often interestingly subtle) arrangements of several traditional songs, complemented by a clutch of his own-compositions.
ROBB JOHNSON - MARGARET THATCHER: MY PART IN HER DOWNFALL
A recording of 20 of Johnson’s older songs, including “The Herald Of Free Enterprise”, “Rosa’s Lovely Daughters”, “Captain Swing”, “Boxing Day”, and the agit-prop kiddies singalong “The Animals Song”.
