9/10 Brian Staff review, 07 August 2009
Nice of the much loved James Yorkston to take things back to basics, with assistance from Sheffield's Big Eyes Family Players, he's unleashed a blinding collection of tender traditional folk classics, mostly picked from around the British Isles. His mellow Scots burr always brings a smile to proceedings and these contemporary interpretations range from the freewheeling & summery, the heartrending & melancholy to centerpiece 'Pandeirada de Entrimo', a token Spanish number sourced from the Galicia region which stirs the soul with it's flickering intensity - a marching drum & fiddle piece that has me dreaming of partaking in a slow muñeira with a fine dusky maiden! Being of traditional nature, the majority of songs here are remarkably free of a "shitting out the window" luddite attitude, these lilting acoustic lullabies are either touched with sweeping, gentle strings or embellished further with restrained bass strokes & discreet percussion. Every tune here has a reassuring, homely glow, played with the knowing prowess of musicians in awe of their proud heritage yet unrestrained by their ancestry. A thoroughly engaging listen with not a weak moment!
