"This is the album that opened my ears to modern folk music. The album opens with "Fires of Calais", a lyrical tune about the Allied evacuation of that City during World War II. The flames are long gone but I felt the sense of urgency of the rescuers while listening to this tune. "Jenny Bryce" is a slow moving ballad that moves from joy to loss to joy and carries the listener along emotionally. "Follow Me Up to Carlow", a traditional Irish tune, is performed superbly without affectation. "Refugee" is perhaps the most haunting song on this album, but my favorite remains "Sea for the Shore" in which one may relive choices that lead to both happiness and loss.
If you've not heard James Keelaghan before, start with this album. You will want the rest as fast as you can get them!"
