Buy it, Try it (and never repent you) by Ron Taylor and Jeff Gillett

Summary

Ronís must be one of the finest singers of traditional folk song around and his singing on this album just goes to prove it. What all the songs have in common is that they are rooted firmly in the tradition and have attracted them by both their melody and their words. They are accompanied by Jeffís superb work on guitar, mandola and concertina and he is supported by several very talented musicians to help present the songs: Gill Redmond on cello; Becky Dellow on fiddle; Steve Tyler on hurdy-gurdy; and Katy Marchant on recorder and bagpipes.

For this collection, Ron and Jeff have revisited some songs they have been singing for many years but which have never, previously, been available on CD. They have also included a number of songs that they have been singing for quite a while, but have never previously recorded. Finally, they have added a few songs that are quite new to their repertoire.

The song comes first;
then the singerís interpretation;
then (and only then) comes the accompaniment...
