An Introduction to Shirley Collins

Description

Few singers of the English folk revival have attempted as much on record as Collins - an extraordinary combination of fragility and power. "I like music to be fairly straightforward, simply embellished - the performance without histrionics allowing you to think about the song rather than telling you what to think."

Through an impressive series of experimental recordings Shirley established an extraordinarily sympathetic marriage of traditional songs handed down through generations of rural labouring people with ground breaking contemporary arrangements - recordings that have scarcely been equalled in subsequent decades. This collection of songs draws together some of her most iconic recordings and will serve as an Introduction to her very special catalogue of music.
