Description

Reissue of Shirley & Dolly Collins' classic final album. First released in 1978 'For As Many As Will' continues to influence new generations of folk musicians. The Collins sisters were brought up on the Sussex coast with a strong love and understanding for English traditional song. Through a remarkable series of landmark recordings during the 1960s and '70s they helped define the possibilities of the English folksong revival. 'For As Many As Will', their classic final recording includes a stunning reading of Richard Thompson's 'Never Again', alongside fine traditional material like 'Lord Allenwater', 'Gilderoy', 'The Moon Shines Bright' and a medley from John Gay's 'The Beggar's Opera'. The album contains some of the sisters' finest recorded work together - uniting Dolly Collins fine arranging skills with the haunting beauty of Shirley's voice.
