It is bizarre though...as it reads like a 4 or even 5 star review but then gives it 3!

Got mine yesterday and gave it a listen last night. Sublime. The settings of the songs are perfect, and i can only think of one where Shirley sounds really off the mark. Pressing is excellent, sleeve art lovely.

Nice little interview which I read in 'i' but was apparently in The Scotsman first.

"A lot of people now are calling themselves folk singers but they sing songs they have written themselves and itís just not really the same thing at all. I only want to sing songs that have come down through the tradition to us."
