Sunley new CD by Roy Harris--gotta hear this ! (22) RE: new CD by Roy Harris--gotta hear this ! 22 Nov 99


May I please differ ??

My 'Live at the Lion' is shortly going to the used-CD shop in Reading so you can pick it up there for 8 quid. What a tremendous disappointment. If you want 'Old Time Music Hall' then fine, I have no quarrel with that - pop along to your local tavern. But A CD stuffed full of it?. NO! That's not what live recording is about. A cynic might say Roy left his guitar at home and let the audience do 85% of the work. Sure, have a couple of audience-participation songs - like Peter Bellamy used to do - but let's have some finely crafted ballads in there too, with neat guitar work which is a joy to listen to.
