Synopsis

Album Description
So the record's a mix of stuff," Lief offers. "I sing one song, 'Jeg Lagde Meg Sa Silde', in my native Norwegian language. It's an old 16th century ballad I've known for many years, which I rearranged for this recording. It's a diversity of ethnic roots really, because we've got everything from a Scottish march, to Irish reels, dance tunes. We've got a Norwegian song, a British murder ballad done acappella, and then we've got some contemporary songs, so it's definitely a cross-section."

CD Reviews

A bit uneven, but good.
06/21/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Well, this is pretty much stripped-down acoustic Tempest, still a good thing if you like Lief Sorbye's voice. A couple of the songs didn't do much for me. I expected to like "Jeg Lagde Meg Sa Silde" more than I did, and "Bold John Barleycorn" isn't quite up to the standard that other recordings of the tune have set. On the other hand, "Beeswing" is very poignant, and "What Put The Blood" - a wholly vocal track - is powerful. Recommended."
