reviews Just Another Day by Tom and Barbara Brown

These fine voices are joined by five more, along with six instruments, so the 15 tracks range from solos to grand choruses. A dozen songs were collected by Cecil Sharp from two sea-captains while three more have been written by Tom and Barbara themselves. The 8-page booklet is very informative; there are several interesting variants, for example Franklin, sung by Barbara, and Heave Away My Johnny with new words by Tom. Standout track is the title track, words by Tom, tune Lilli Marlene. Good one guys.
