Synopsis

Amazon.com
Mary MacMaster and Patsy Seddon of Sìleas and Karen Tweed of the Kathryn Tickell Band have now fully welcomed solo singer Kate Rusby into the Poozies fold, and she's added a great deal of strength to the mix, not only with her vocals, but also with the subtle qualities of her guitar and fiddle playing. This is very definitely a band album, however; the instrumental sets sparkle joyously, whether original, contemporary, or traditional material, with the players working off and around each other. That said, it's the vocal work that truly stuns on this outing. "Sorrows Away" is perfect harmony, "Neptune" is a wonderfully moving eco-ballad (the arrangement recalls the Eliza Carthy band), and "Ma Plaid" is truly haunting. A triumph all around for the girls' team. --Chris Nickson

CD Reviews

Worthy of more than a mere five stars...

"Just when I was thinking of tightening up my reviewing standards and not handing out as many five star reviews--along came "Infinite Blue" by the Poozies as a Christmas gift. How can I not give this one five stars?There are four songs here that I would categorize as great: "Come All Ye Lonely Lovers," "Ma Plaid," "Sorrows Away," and "The Maid of Llanwellyn." These ladies did an excellent job of selecting, writing, arranging, playing, (and especially) singing this material. I am in awe of them.Kate Rusby in particular is outstanding. Her voice makes what would otherwise be a run of the mill song (Neptune) into a true thing of beauty. Likewise, I cannot get "The Maid of Llanwellyn" out of my head. She has a voice that will haunt you for days after hearing it.I give "Infinite Blue" my highest recommendation."
Great ensemble

"As a previous reviewer said, "Sorrows Away" will send shivers down your spine-- literally. It is the most beautiful and best executed a cappella song I've ever heard anywhere. The rest of the CD is fine, but this one song is worth all the money by itself."

"I have Infinite Blue(IB) and Raise Your Head(RYH)and RYH finds my cd player more. Any cd with Kate Rusby singing on it can't be bad, and these are no exception. You really need both of these anyway because IB has Neptune on it, which is a great song.
Ma Plaid/Freya's Dances is also great, and is also on RYH. Another one I like is Come All Ye Lonely Lovers. If your reading this and don't know who Kate Rusby is get Hourglass asap, it is awesome. My pecking order would be: Hourglass (K Rusby), then Raise Your Head, then Infinite Blue, Sleepless and Lights. 10 by Kate Rusby is not out yet and is something of a compilation with a few live tunes."
