8/10 according to Brian (Norman Records staff) on Thu 02 Apr, 2009'Last Weeks Tune' is a full length CD by the supremely gifted folkster Troy Faid. He played our local cinema the other week and kindly sent us a ticket so we could attend his show. I'd like to see the 5-6 of us trying to stoop in there dressed in one hugely overlength raincoat, keystone cops style. He's got a rustic yet young & charismatic style, see; Northern troubadour, sprightly finger-picking skills, a keen ear for melodic tradition yet the variety of hardy tune to hold his own in a climate spilling with pretty, smirking young things armed with a Bob Dylan album and a trust fund. Anyone with an ear for earthy, passionately executed singer-songwriter folk & acoustic blues, ranging from Drake to Jansch, Benjamin Wetherill to Charlie Parr should cock an ear towards this prodigious young talent!

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
