Oh the Wind & Rain

And snow too

Two weeks ago it snowed here, the only real snowfall we have had so far. I sat on my bed while looking out the window to watch the snow fall as I listened to OH THE WIND AND RAIN in headphones. It was one of the most truly sublime musical moments I have had in the last month.

This album is magnificently recorded and several of the songs have become favorites of mine, such as Old Bangum, John Detroy, and Barbary Ellen. It was tough to even pick those three as favorites because somehow I feel as if I am cheating on the other songs, but for the good of the review, I decided to try and choose. For a nice introduction to "traditional music" this is a perfect example of the English side. To round out the introduction, also consider getting John Cohen's STORIES THE CROW TOLD ME for the more old-time American traditional music. These 2 albums are great compliments to each other.

I also noticed that Henry Kaiser has reviewed this album. Henry is a great musician, I'm not sure what releases of his can be bought here at Amazon, but do yourself a favor and check and see anyway!
