VARIOUS ARTISTS "Now, Here, This" Terra Nova TERRCD014

"Now, Here, This" whets the appetite better than a dry sherry. Barry Gleeson and Martin Carthy should induce anybody to at least give a listen to it. There are performers I'd never heard of before, some who make no particular impression on me, but none I'd go mad to skip. Isn't this the best way to get to hear them without spending your kids' inheritance or all day at a "listening post"? I've often been introduced to new talent by samplers, then gone on to buy everything they've done. Terra Nova describe these as emerging acts. Well, they're well and truly out now. Nothing here for die-hard traditionalists, but it doesn't aim for that. Most people will find something appealing here.

The only real grouse is the insert; just a list of the CD titles and an order form. Terra Nova should have spent the extra few pence, and given us more complete info on these people. Most of us prefer this, if only so we can show off. If you're trying to entice us into the trap, put something really tasty in there.
