CD Reviews

Like Nick Drake? Here's the real deal.
Christopher G. Huttman | Atlanta, GA USA | 07/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sadly, Ewan Maccoll may be best known as the father of the girl that wrote the theme song to the Tracey Takes On show on HBO. Well, he was a passionate folk artist who kept the genre of British folk alive in the 50's and 60's thus paving the way for artists in the 60's (Fairport Convention/Pentangle), the 70's (the aforementioned Drake), the 80's (the Pogues) and even today (Bragg/Wilco). He's a great storyteller, and there isn't any sort of inside joke like with other folktellers. He's simply telling wonderful stories of the working man and his own loves. His clubs kept the genre alive, he was a passionate believer in the power of music to change people. Maybe he was the first punk, regardless if you've got any soul in you you'll fall in love with all of his timeless songs."
