Description

"Not just a giant in the traditional music pantheon, but a great singer beyond genre." - Uncut "June Tabor is probably the finest female traditional British folk singer of the late 20th century if not the best British folk singer of her time, period." Ritchie Unterberger, All Music Guide First issued in 1983, this album consolidated June Tabor's position not just as Britain's greatest female traditional singer, but as a great singer beyond genre. Along with her superb versions of traditional songs, her interpretations of Lal & Mike Waterson's "The Scarecrow" and Joni Mitchell's "The Fiddle & the Drum" raise this album to classic status. Now available at mid-price, this album is a must buy for all music fans. "The greatest female traditional singer of our time" - Word magazine "June Tabor is intelligent, endearingly unpretentious, questing and honest in her selection of material and committed, like a custodian of some rare treasures, to the power of song, whatever its genre." - Record Collector Tracks: The Month Of January / The Scarecrow / One Night As I Lay On My Bed / She Moves Among Men (The Bar Maid's Song) / Lay This Body Down / A Smiling Shore / The Bonny Boy / I Never Thought My Love Would Leave Me / The Bonny Hind / The Fiddle And The Drum.
