The Common Stone


An album of traditional and original songs by one of the all time great voices of the English folk scene. Renowned on both sides of the Atlantic for his uncompromisingly gritty talent, Davenport's recording history goes back over four decades producing raw, idiosyncratic nuggets. His unique poetic realism has been a profound influence on such disparate artists as Richard Thompson and Ray Davies. Never one to court fashion he has remained true to the living tradition while being on the cutting edge of revivalism. When word got around that Bob was recording this album, the cream of the current folk scene queued for the chance to participate. The final list includes appearances by Richard & Linda Thompson, Chumbawamba Acoustic, Martin Carthy, Mike & Norma Waterson, John Tams, Coope, Boyes & Simpson and Fi Fraser. The resulting album is raw, real and original: an album by a man who knows his art - and it shows.
