Martin Carthy is justifiably one of the most popular, influential and respected figures on the English folk scene and has been for almost 50 years.
A distinctive singer with an expressive nasal style he also developed a droning, percussive guitar style immensely suited to accompanying the traditional songs he specializes in. He is also a consummate researcher into finding good old songs and always credits his sources, and when necessary modifies the songs to make them more relevant to a contemporary audience.
He was also a consummate professional who loved to perform and until fairly recently was continuously touring which helped him hone his skills. His singing, choice of songs, arrangements and guitar playing have influenced generations of English folk musicians and is a popular figure on the American folk scene and has toured here frequently from the s through s.
Although he has slowed down in recent years he still performs frequently and, most recently, has been a member of the adventurous group The Imagine d Village. This wonderful set provides a cross section of his recordings from through In he teamed up with the great fiddler Dave Swarbrick and together they recorded several albums together and a number of tracks are featured from those albums including the spine chilling ballad Prince Heathen.
In the s he teamed up a with group of musicians including a brass section to form the unique group Brass Monkey and a couple of tracks are featured from their albums. In the s he teamed up with his wife Norma Waterson and their daughter Eliza and made several superb albums and the lively Rackabello is featured here and the set ends with a piece of Carthy whimsy with a delicious performance of The Harry Lime Theme.
The set is full of some of the best performances of English folk music you'll hear anywhere. If you don't already have an extensive collection of his recordings this will provide a perfect introduction to one of Britain's national treasures. This CD features 16 more fine sides from the 40s - pop, jive and gospel.
Excellent sound and informative notes. Dranes was probably the most exciting gospel piano player of the s. In her performing, she combined a rousing barrelhouse rhythm on the piano with her own and others' sanctified singing. Her style was to influence generations of gospel pianists and inspired Sister Rosetta Tharpe who attended the same church as Dranes in Chicago to adopt her unqiue guitar stylings.
Dranes was a member of the Church Of God In Christ which was the most uninhibited of all the black churches - not only in its music but in its preaching and praying. Her performances are incredibly exciting including some solo performances, some with additional female vocals and, on one session, by Rev. McGhee and The Jubilee Singers and several tracks feature some great mandolin playing.
Two tracks are gorgeous piano solos.
