reviews Far Distant Stars by Lynne Heraud and Pat Turner

Lynne and Pat have a slight disadvantage. Audiences remember them for their modern day music hall style songs which are so good that they tend to overshadow the pair's fine accompaniments and harmony singing. Taking this CD as an example, those comprise only a third of their repertoire. There are lots of serious songs including Anne Lister's lovely song Moth and Pat's brilliant Song For Tom. As you'd expect, most of the songs come from a female perspective and, apart from a song written by Graeme Miles, there's a definite bias towards songs from Southern England.

Lynne and Pat are singers that I always love to see and this is the next best thing to seeing them live. Recommended.
