CD Reviews

Interesting, though not always melodic...
06/13/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I love traditional music and would recommend this album to anybody who feels the same way. The songs all tell stories and compel you to listen again. This is an album that really grows on you. Although I admire A.L. Lloyd (AKA Al Lloyd, AKA Bert Lloyd) as a song collector, he left much to be desired as a singer. Traditional music demands good intonation, which was something Lloyd simply did not have. Some of his renditions on this album and others are so dreadfully off-key as to be nearly painful. But aside from this poor choice of singer, it's an interesting album."
